Hello from a newbie!

Postby KiboBeerNomad » Mon Dec 12, 2011 11:39 pm

Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm commonly known as Kibo the Beer Nomad, or by my abbreviated handle, KiboBeerNomad.

I'm here to prove the renaissance man is not dead. I have knowledge of many things, knowledge of many varying depths. I am/have been a baker, embalmer, painter, landscaper, furniture builder and handler, author, poet, martial artist, collector, amateur historian, amateur metallurgist, wordsmith, comedian, aspiring blacksmith, and now an aspiring figure customizer of mostly the 4" scale.

I suffered a debilitating head injury in March 2011. I have an infant son who never stops impressing me, especially with his radiant and astonishing positivity. Seriously, the happiest baby I've EVER seen.

I love to read...or rather, I did before my injury, which has affected my vision and balance, amongst other things.

I can be a bit of a cultural cuissinart...I'm a firm believer in Miyamoto Musashi's principle of "Familiarize yourself with EVERYTHING. Know a little about every thing there is to know about."

I admire the work of the great customizers on this site and greatly appreciate everyone here, as everyone has been terrific to me thus far.

Welcome in buddy, sorry to hear bout the injury but I agree with your thoughts on your son, I have a son who's two this month and yeah he constantly impresses me and has the ability to pull me out of any slump with a well placed smile or giggle :D . Hope you enjoy it here man!!

It got a smirk, but i give you the benefit of the doubt. I had a rather disappointing doctor's appointment today. Seriously though, thanks to all for the warm welcomes, and I did smile. (Doctor's evaluation still sucked though)

Thanks again to all! Yami, I hope you didn't take any offense to my foul mood the other day, and you did make me smirk, which is something! Therapist, thanks for the welcome too, and man, this parenthood racket just changes all kinds of dynamics, don't it? As for my work, well...i've got 8 up on the site so far...and as many in progress, from one stage or another between 'concept/idea' to 'finishing touches'...haha. Thanks again everyone for the welcome!
