Straight, white, middle-aged, male.
Late-diagnosed #ActuallyAutistic at 46.
Project manager of the #BelmontGoats, "Portland’s nonprofit resident herd”.
Cat dad to Meru and Willow.
Longtime cynic (read: frustrated optimist), so the small, every day courtesies matter.
Doesn’t bike nor dance nor date nor drive nor drug nor sex nor smoke nor swim.
If events were pictures and emotions were sounds, my memories would play as silent movies.
As a child, I wanted to become an outer space moving van driver. As an adult, I am not one.
By the Oxford English Dictionary definition of “slack” as the amount of time in critical path analysis by which a particular event may be delayed without delaying the achievement of the overall objective, I consider myself a slacker. I have yet to determine the overall objective.

I’m still not sure where I stand in my Mastodon vs. Micro.blog thing. I’ve said it before: I want the diversity that exists here, and want to be here, but I still haven’t found an instance that feels like home. But I also want to start blogging again, more independently, and I like the M.b interface, and am still unsure about Write.as.
I am also playing more on micro.blog lately and I turned on mastodon support, so I can be followed there at @bix. Not sure where I will settle.
