Late Introduction

My apologies, I was having such a good time on Vingle that I forgot to properly introduce myself. My real name is Jason. I live in the Pacific Northwest region of the USA.
First off, I am husband and father to my psychotic but lovable family.
I have some cats. Jackson and Sarah respectively. Jackson is a 17 pound tomcat I picked up in an alley and Sarah is his feral daughter we eventually tamed.
I'm a high school dropout. Never could maintain interest and besides, my skills were already developed long before I even hit middle school. I am great with machines. All machines. If you can put an energy source in one side and get a desired reaction out the other; I can build, repair, and especially modify it.
I love to modify cars, especially Fords. No, not Mustangs or the usual candidates for souping up. I do sleepers. You know, the ones that shouldn't be fast but leave you wondering how the hell something like that could slam your doors.
I don't watch a whole lot of TV, but when I do it's anime. I was taught Japanese culture and language in middle school. It gives me a greater appreciation for anime and manga when I am aware of the cultural nuances.
Going to Sakura-con this year? I'll see you there. I you went last year, you might have seen me. You know, the ONLY Sebastian who was slender and over 6 1/2 feet tall. Yeah, that one.
I was a Seahawk fan before is was cool. Since I was there for the bad years, it makes these good years feel a whole lot better.
Before I close, I will give an honorable mention to videogames. Now it is my kids who benefit from me keeping everything I had since my own childhood.
There is so much more in my life I love, but the last word belongs to booze. Especially beer. Not just because I'm a drunk, but it is a skilled craft and the best way to show my appreciation is to drink up.
Well that is a peek into my twisted little life. Hope that is enough to let you know where I stand in this world.
BONUS
One Vingle member is my kid. Can anyone figure out who it is? Neither one of us will try to make it obvious.

Hello and welcome to Vingle new friend. I also went to Sakura Con last year, we may have seen each other, and I'm going this year. I'll look out for the tall Sebastian.
Welcome to the Vingle family!
I was repeatedly told when I started to make an introduction card, I just finally got around to it. @ButterflyBlu I live inland so I don't have the depressing weather Seattle has. @InVinsybll That's awesome you saying ham-handed. I haven't heard that in a long time. There is good money in HVAC, why'd you stop? @alywoah Runs in the family.
Hi there! Welcome! (But you've been around for a bit, yes? XD) I'm jealous. Sigh. I consider moving north up the coast DAILY. I love it up there.
awesome dude! welcome! (kinda?) I wish I was handy with machines. I'm ham-handed in general with most technical stuff. I briefly did some HVAC but the bill stops there.

Some Thoughts From the Thanksgiving Games
Not the best games ever but a great day of football nonetheless. Here's what I saw today. How about you? The Lions Offense Awakens: Stafford nearly threw for 400 yards, Megatron catches 11 passes for 146 yards and 2 TDs, and the running game materialised in the form of Joique Bell. They have been criticized for their lack of offense for the past few weeks but they found the answer and showed why they can't be disregarded in this year's playoff race. The Bears Defense stinks: They simply got shredded in all aspects tonight and on the road the Bears defense is simply terrible. They will not win games with this defense hands down. The Bears Offense Talented but No Results: The Bears were contained all night with the lone exception of Alshon Jeffrey's two TDs in the first half. Forte only got 6 carries for 5 yards and you simply cannot just give up on the run like that no matter how good the opponent's run defense is... unless you are Tom Brady and the Pats. The Cowboys Defense is a Liability: The Cowboys defense has been pretty good for most of the season, doing enough to win, but they have been exposed by the Giants last week and the Eagles this week. The Cowboys offense may be vaunted but they need to be perfect if they want to win with this defense. The Seahawks Back To Championship Form: My Niners were lost today but you have to give the Seahawks a lot of the credit. They came to play and simply outplayed the Niners in all facets of the game. The Seahawks defense was playing sound and Beast Mode was back at it today pounding for hard earned yards. The Niners chances of making it to the playoffs took a big hit while the Seahawks look to make some noise this year once again.
