some not so insignifica)
I'll add to this page as fast as
I can think of stuff to put here.
a LOT of people (hey - I'm a friendly guy!), but I have a very small number
of very close friends that are almost like brothers and sisters to me.
They're spread out all over now - Barbados, New York, Texas, Boston, and of
who send along chain e-mails should be shot.
read. A lot. Always reading something - often more than one book
at a time.
lace teddies - do it for me EVERY time!
|After 7 years of 'forced' masses
and confessions in secondary school, I'm about all religioned out. I
do believe there's a God - but whether He/She/Your Pronoun Of Choice is
being represented by one group of people down here? I don't know about
|Love team sports, like football
(the REAL football, where you actually kick a ball with your feet) cricket
and baseball. Don't have one iota of skill on a playing field.
None. Zero. Nada.|
|Guilty pleasure - old Sesame
Street songs and skits. Stuff I grew up with, like Ernie and Bert's
rhyming game (Hey there lamp! That's a nice
shade...........you.") And I know all the words to "Lower
Case N" and "We All Live In A Capital I"!|
one of my favorite subjects - movies! These are the movies I can watch
over and over:
Python And The Search For The Holy Grail
("Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of
Star Wars Trilogy (especially The Empire Strikes Back)
Python's Life of Brian ("How shall we f**k off, O Lord?")
("This chick is toast!")
("You'll get nothing and like it!")
Beauty ("I rule!")
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (the
man is my hero. Well, after Mom.....)
(it's got everything - love, honor, betrayal, great fights, limbs
getting hacked off, AND a gratuitous boob shot! What more do you
Color Purple (that Spielberg guy!)
Encounters Of The Third Kind (ditto)
(I know PCU and Schindler's List shouldn't be in the same category,
but that movie cracks me up every time I see it. And it's got
George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars in it.)
|Guilty pleasure - 80s music|
|I've worn some sort of
'corrective lenses' since I was eight. (See? You DO go blind!)|
|I get migraines. Pretty bad
a quote - "I am not the
same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world."
I have this quote framed and on my wall. Travel. Live somewhere
else. It's wonderful. Seeing places
like Yosemite, taking a walk during a snowstorm and realizing that you can't
hear one thing (a big thing for an island guy!), and losing yourself in the
humanity of a big city - these things broaden the mind.
good beer, cheap Chinese food, good wine, buffalo wings, bananas, roti (Trini
Indian food), pad thai, peanuts (loaded with salt!), ribs (as a matter of
fact, just bring the cow, medium well), french fries.
I'll eat my veggies and exercise, but if they say I can't have these, you might as well
- to be loved, admired, respected, and even worshipped....but never
try anything twice.
Matthews Band, Sade, Sting, David Rudder, The Mighty Shadow - and everything
from Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac to Macy and Santana.
soca, electronica, soul (not R&B! Too damn
formulaic!).........everything except country. And polkas.
one most people don't know - I took my first darkroom class to get my mind
off of a woman. I figured getting out and doing something sure as hell
beat staying home and moping. Thought it would be a good way to meet
women too - and get back into the game. Well, that part bombed - but
it started my fascination with photography......and the rest, as they say,
As a result of spending 3 years in
the Boston area, I'm now the only person in Trinidad that follows Red Sox
The greatest movie ever made?
Python and the Search for the Holy Grail'.
In the words of the immortal Beetlejuice, "......and
it keeps getting funnier, every, single, time I see it!"
