Well, I like lots of comics, but X-Men are my faves.
As a troubled kid, they were an
But more than that, they represented many
things that I related to, like being an outcast and target of hate.
I will always have a fondness for X-Men.
There's nothing like being somewhere new!
I enjoy both being "touristy" and "with the locals." Hanging in new environments feels like learning mixed with adventure.
I try to know at least enough language/ custom to be polite: Please and Thank You, for example.
I've been to: Paris, London, Edinburgh, Amsterdam,
Nepal, Delhi, Dharamsala, Milan, Rome, Venice, Madrid, Florence, Pisa,
Tokyo, Oahu & Hilo, New York City, Arizona, Colorado, Sac/ San Diego/
LA, San Antonio, Dallas, Baltimore, Las Vegas, the "Four Corners", the
Grand Canyon, Seattle, Davis & Environs, Utah (only for Kayaking/
Hiking), Washington D.C., Claremont (California), and obviously places
around the SF/ Bay Area.
When I was a teen in the Denver area, there was an ubiquitous presence of racism and homophobia.
Someone brought me to a cool coffee shop called "Muddy's." Immediately... I felt at home. It was dark and diverse and fun, rife with possibilities.
No... that's not quite true.
I felt out of place.
Like I was in a haven but I wasn't good
enough to be there.
I loved it, though.
Ever since, I've had a thing for coffee
shops, especially certain kinds.
I love mom & pops, I love supporting small
businesses, and I'm a bit of a coffee snob -- but not to the point where
I won't chill somewhere if there are other neat things about a place.
I said "duh!"
Eating... Food & Stuff!
But I love eating, I love food, trying
different cuisines and new things.
Mom used to cook. She was the first to teach me the basics. I've spent a lot of time in restaurants since, and I can make a lot of things fairly "okay." Even though I'm vegetarian, I enjoy the challenge and art of cooking, and have been known to cook meat, fish or poultry for other people.
On the other hand, I can't bake!!!
Give me a good red! I like bold, spicy, in your face flavors! Heck, sometimes I like a nice, smooth red. Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, those are my go-to's. I'll sometimes get a Syrah.
But if you open a Cab or Merlot
or anything else... yah.
Pour me a glass, too.
Music! Music!! Music!!!
survived High School because of music.
(good ol' AD&D... I miss ya....)
*SIGH* there are so many things I like....
Ultimately, I'm glad I'm on Twitter! And yeah... I'm still a NOOB!
