Just my fingers getting ahead of my brain. Funny, until the last couple of years the fumbles were from my brain getting ahead of my fingers (mouth)
I picked the name 'cause right now I really miss the kiddiwinks - and their parents. I haven't seen them in two years, and I used to see them several times a year.
Actually, when well I'm a peace loving former hippie wannabe. I always go for comfort first, style second. It's an image that makes lots of people laugh. But not quite 'mel in a bonnet' - that's a bit too pythonish even for me.
Also, when not agorophobic, I have a strong need for adventure. Work has taken me all over the place - all continents except antarctica and africa. My favourite spots being the former soviet east european countries. I've done what a couple of what they call 'devoloping' countries too. It is impossible to shock me with a US public bathroom anymore.
I try to at least appear to be a realist - but in actually I'm more an idealist. Not a safe thing these days.
