Too easy - i'm calm and low key. The more frantic the surroundings the slower and quieter i get. Under stress i take a nap, in an emergency i'm darn near comatose. Value the truth so highly i use it sparingly and thus the reference to the Norse God of Trickery.

Tang = orange cat
Tango = nickname for him
Monster = 25 pound cat

With a little encouragement, I might just post a photo of him so you can appreciate him in all his glory!

And here you thought it was because I was a fantastic tango dancer.....

25 pound cat? Mmm some cat!

Mines pretty simple also. I live in the mountains and drive (1 to 1 1/2 hours) to the sea on some weekends to hang out.

This was started before I joined the forum. Interesting.

Well... there are two options.

1) Historical significance (has to be translated to English) - Translated version of http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinaco

2) The other... - Chinaco® Tequila Website


I will give you a further hint. I am Anglo and know little to nothing about the history of Mexico.

Alright, watch the comments... a guy has to have some sort of recreational activity.

As you can tell, I am a deep thinker.

Living i Asia I have learned to appreciate the teachings of Buddhism. I don't spend too much time meditating, but I have learned to relax a bit more. Hence the moniker.
