I've tried, several times, to describe myself in this section, with only mediocre success. Tonight, I had a convo. with a good friend who can see pretty clearly. She asked a brilliant question and I gave my honest answer. So far, I can't think of a better summation of "me". Whether or not you're going to give me the time of day can probably be determined by the following exchange.
Her: What persona do you want to emulate?
Tom Cruise in "Legend"?
Once again, you almost made me spit my beer. I know what you're asking, but it's a hard question to answer. Why do you ask it?
Hell if I know ..banter? Curiosity? I like to know how people view themselves.
Well, truthfully, I don't remember much about his personality in "Legend" But I really do like him in "The Last Samurai". Take that, and cross it with Andy Griffith, Mark Twain, and just a pinch of Hunter S. Thompson (for the bad habits) and that's about what I want to be. Does that answer your question?
Yes it does...very succinctly...Spot on!
So that's me, in a nutshell. Big thanks to my friend for producing a better summation of me than I could come up with myself. From the outside looking in:
