About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find the naked men... but in a friendly way; not a sordid way.

ABOUT ME

Jeez... this profile is so old. Let's delete some. Or add some.

I'm happiest when I'm riding a bicycle and singing. Also, washing dishes and singing. I lack ambition.

Umm...jeez... So, I lived in Berlin for a little while, which was wonderful in many ways, but one of the lasting effects (aside from the fact that there are a few words which I must say in German, because there just isn't a good English one), is that I feel entitled to be naked. So, this summer I've decided to plan all my vacations (and I need several) towards this goal... Though I'm perfectly happy to remain clohted wherever, if you prefer. I'm not militant.

I'm gay... I guess that's important, sometimes; I've been with my boyfriend for a very long time. We have a lovely home, like most homosexuals, but it's not all clean and stuff, and there's nothing from IKEA, unless it first went out on the curb. I need to paint the trim, and we need to reset the goldfish pond/bathtub deeper into the ground this summer. I hate housepainting, though I did used to paint paintings.

PHILOSOPHY

Oh, I'm very practical. I don't think about philosophies.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We have hosted dozens of surfers, and it's almost always a wonderful experience... I think in some cases my lovely friends meeting my lovely surfers has been an impetus to get up and go. That's important.

And, of course I'm often traveling somewhere, and need guidance... and a bed... and, hopefully, a bicycle.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Young Germans are natural couch surfers (apparently)... once you let one into your house, new ones come by every summer. God knows what they see in this country (oh... thrift shops, space, etc., I know).

Strangers call from Cape Cod and say they're on their way....

Then, we go stay with them.

Interests

Urban landscapes and wastelands, flowering weeds, bicycles going towards a destination (OR on Critical Mass), maps, nudity, trash, public transit.

  • singing
  • thrifting
  • traveling
  • painting
  • cartography

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't like making lists, except for shopping lists. But I don't really like shopping.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The thunderstorm from the sixth floor, here in Argentina, was very lovely. It's been so hot.

Teach, Learn, Share

I made this map:

Oh, and here's some Boston couchsurfing advice: Try searching in the towns Allston, Somerville, Cambridge, Brookline, Jamaica Plain -- the CS search engine does not work well for Boston, but these places are all essentially in the city, on the subway.
