About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To help others communicate without embarrassing themselves, to afflict the comfortable, and live to be 100, all without ever eating a corn dog.

ABOUT ME

I'm not really old; I've just been around a long time. I have had several careers in several industries, including model making, journalism, education, paint & coatings, mail order, retail, medical insurance, construction, real estate, collectibles, and hospitality management. Currently I am a seriously underemployed freelance editor, primarily of educational materials. Not counting current clients or summer jobs, of the 12 companies that have employed me over the years, 8 are now out of business. It's not my fault!

I thrive on novelty. Couldn't care less about sports. Prefer cultural attractions to bars.

PHILOSOPHY

90% of everything you have ever been told is a lie. Maturity comes from dealing with this, and seeking the truth, rather than defending what comforts you.

The top three lies of all time, in no particular order: + "The people in charge know what's best!" + There is somebody, somewhere, who actually knows what is going on, and is secretly in control of things. + God Almighty has personally and publicly endorsed the Holy Bible as a perfect substitute for Himself.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Until I get my ass in gear and go somewhere, the world can come to me.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Heretofore, only informally. Now I'm official!

Interests

Hobbies include model cars (I don't just buy them, I make them) and 3D (stereo) photography.

Music, Movies & Books

SO many books. Mostly nonfiction and genre fiction (SF, mysteries) Movies and TV: Backlog city; my VCR watches a whole lot more than I do.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I once shot a bear in my pajamas. How he got into them, I'll never know. :D

Teach, Learn, Share

Dangerous-but-true advice: The mistakes of my youth that I most regret are the ones I was too timid to make.
