I'm a Libra. 6ft tall. I work out, and I enjoy whiskey ( not at the same time, mind you ). My eyes are hazel, and I can raise one eyebrow at a time. Old-school-cool .. no frills, no spills. I drive an '85 Land Rover that looks like a dog but purrs like a kitten .. and sadly, it drinks like a fish :(

Presently working on developing a time portal to bring back the 80's! ;)
