Introduction I am a slacker, and married, and grouchy but I love life. I love photography and writing and internet crap and reading and cats and beer. and anything that makes me laugh out loud. and Indian food. I love honest people and I find mean people inexplicably fascinating. Like, seriously, what crawled up your ass and died? I love to sing but I sound like shit. I easily retain song lyrics but not important information. I hate phones but love writing and I like the internet because it is like having a yearbook/scrapbook forever.

I love funny old books like the Golden Turkey awards, and any Jack Handey compilation.
