Thanks for reading my blog, and for wanting to learn more about me.
I’ve never been any good at talking about myself so I’ll just put up some random stuff I’ve heard people say about me in different settings, like when I’m at the grocery store or walking down the street. It’s best if I let the people speak.
”Absolutely brilliant!! One of the finest minds in the world!!!”
“Most nights he doesn’t even feel like going out but after about eight or nine drinks, he can usually manage to have a good time.”
“Hey, he EARNED that chip on his shoulder!”
“He’s got the chiseled physique of a Greek god!”
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s running this company someday.”
Just kidding. All the above quotes are totally made-up. Except one. Can you guess which one?
OK, here’s the real deal. I’ve spent the past 17 years trying to make myself at home here in DC. It hasn’t been easy at all to completely fit in. Maybe it’s got something to do with my being part Russian and part Sierra Leonean, part Muslim and part Jewish. Part stallion, too. That’s actually the best part. I’ve also never been good at conformity and obedience. And my honesty makes some people uncomfortable, usually when I say things like, “I fit most of the criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder.” Not sure why. What else? Ah! I think the natural resources of a country should be used to benefit the people of that country. Unless, of course, those people happen to live in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, or really anywhere outside Europe. In that case, those natural resources should be used to benefit wealthy corporations based in Europe and the United States. Also, people often accuse me of being a conspiracy theorist, but I just ignore them. I know they’re just jealous of my intellect and rugged good looks.
There’s so much more, but you’ll have to learn the rest from reading the blog. Actually, that’s really about it. Not much more here.
But come back often anyway, and remember to leave comments.
