Greetings and welcome to anyone who happens to find this page. I decided that there are some things I want to say that just seem to work better in a blog format, and plus, I realize that it takes an incredible amount of chutzpah to write about one's personal life and put it out there as potential entertainment for others. However, that's *exactly* what this is for, and *maybe* I'll actually write something profound and Earth-shaking in the process. I wouldn't get your hopes up, though (LOL!).
By way of introduction, my name is Michael Larsen. I'm a 40 year old guy as of this writing. I'm an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm married to, IMHO, *the* coolest woman on the planet! She has to be, she puts up with me :). I'm Daddy-O to three pretty awesome kids, and I work as a Quality Assurance Engineer for a small company in San Francisco.
Some random things about me, much of which may or may not inform this blog in the future:
I love my church, the people and the opportunities that come out of my being involved in it.
I adore my wife, who is, again, the coolest woman in the world by virtue of her putting up with me.
I love being a Dad, and I dote pretty hard on my youngin's.
I'm a Scouting freak.
I'm a Personal Finance junkie.
Life Hacking is a favorite hobby.
I love Native American culture, especially the modern pan-Indian movement that surrounds and epitomizes the current Pow-Wow world.
I'm a fan of tremendously varied music.
I'm a retired snowboard competitor well past his prime, but still love riding with every fiber of my being.
I'm a casual gamer (of the Video persuasion).
I've been terrible at keeping a personal journal much of my life, so I want to have this basically be it.
Let the games begin :).
