On Being a Food Addict
It's weird being me. I can't explain it. I see what other people's lives are, from the outside, at least. They have meals and snacks and some of them eat healthy and some of them don't. Regardless, for most people food is food. It might be something you enj...

It is done. Mine and my wife's Nexus 4's are active and the numbers have been ported from Verizon. One small hitch is that Straight Talk only sells T-Mobile network sim cards direct from their website. These are standard size. Nexus 4 takes a nano sized sim card. However the working bits are the same size. With a sharp knife, ruler and +Cathy Cortez-Lambert 's steady hand they are now nano sized. Wal-Mart still sells the smaller AT&T network sim cards. If we think T-Mobile is too slow we can switch them out pretty easily for about $30.

So far it's awesome having a fully functional phone, finally and being able to ditch my old brick of a Droid X.

The only remaining detail is the last bill and confirmation of the end of our Verizon service.

I'm Android curious but can't seem to break free from my Apple addiction.

Introduction
I'm a Husband and Father. I'm also a Zen-focused Unitarian Universalist, blogger, writer and Substitute Teacher.

I'm a little bit Steampunk, Beach Boy, Leprechaun, Zen Buddhist, Punk Rock, Rockabilly, Texan, Mexican & Latter-Day Hippie.

I'm a Technophile, Googlephile, NeoLuddite, Extreme DIYer, homebrewer, wannabe soap maker, amateur chef, writer and historian.

I'm passionate about Green-Hacking/Modding everything. My Car, My Housing, even my body through nutrition. What is Green-Hacking? Making stuff I already have more sustainable. This includes my food supply, My energy consumption, really everything that interacts with my life or my family's life.

I am a Happy Herbivore and I primarily follow Dr. John McDougall's Starch Solution eating plan. I'm done with vanity diets. I'm in this for a lifetime of good health and a healthy BMI.

I want to learn to play the bagpipes, banjo, and accordion. but I'll probably just settle for the autoharp. 

I'm from a small town and live in a big city.

I try every day to be:

Alive.
Awake.
Alert.
Enthusiastic.

I usually get 3 out of 4. :-)

I'm an ENFP on the Myers-Briggs Scale (That's an Extroverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiver), Kiersey says my archetype is the Champion and there aren't many of us out there.

Read more on my results: here

Gary Gygax would call me Lawful Good, but, honestly, that's an understatement. I'm a Paladin in my sleep. Also, sometimes, I tilt at Windmills, just for fun.

My dream home is an Earthship, made of recycled materials and Earth. I'm interested in green/earthen building and off-the-grid energy. 

I am a Democratic Socialist. What is that?

Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. - From dsausa.org

You can also check out the wiki on Democratic Socialism.

I mostly vote Democrat of the two major parties, but honestly they barely represent me more than the Republicans. The two-party system is infected by money-based speech and Citizens United just made it legal and accepted. :-(
Bragging rights
I was the the first person in my both of my extended families with a Bachelor's degree.
