The photo above is not me, is the adorable Alfred, who is smaller, cuter, and (slightly) hairier than I am.
An 'important factoid" is pretty much self-eliminating as can something be both important and a factoid? Hey, it's my blog and I will break grammar rules on a whim.
And now on to the Very Very Very Important Factoids About Moi...
2- I recently married my favourite human on the planet. And the surprising part to me is not only in some ways that two guys can legally marry in this country (holy shit, how cool is that...), but how much it really has changed things for me. It feels different.
3- I love board games, and we are building quite the collection of amazing wood and brass collectible versions - Scrabble, Monopoly, and just this month for my birthday an amazing 3D-like version of Clue.
7- I have tried every sport, and the one that took was a surprise to me as well as everyone I know -- turns out I love running, have done a marathon and several other races. Is my solitude and therapy, with loud music blasting on my iPod. I should find the time more than I do.
8- Huge book geek. Always have several on the go. I heart my kindle.
9- I am not only a book geek, I am a gadget freak... kindle, iPhone, TV gizmos, cameras, kitchen gadgets, I love them all. The newer and flashier the better. And when I can justify it will get an iPad.
10- As social and outgoing as I am, I need total solo time on a regular basis -- to read, write, watch hours of HGTV, consume vast amounts of popcorn, whatever.... to rejuvenate.
12- I love love love music, and have it playing all the time. All the time. Almost all music. As I write this I am listening to Linda Ronstadt. Throw on anything from current Top 40 to Elvis to Trisha Yearwood to ELO to Go-Gos to classical to whatever and I am one happy dude.
13- I get speeding tickets.
14- I promise to go camping each summer. Somehow we never find the time...
15- Scared to death of ceiling fans.
16- All-time favourite album is Rosanne Cash's The Wheel.
17- Yes is true, I love love love dogs, though allergic to many, and have the cutest doggie ever, and a pretty awesome step-dog as well. And looking forward to number three...
