My name is Dan Wall. I live in Utqiagvik (Barrow), AK, which is the heart of my claims to great Northiness. In times past, I lived in Northern Arizona and worked on the Navajo Nation, but I always wanted to live on a beach, …at least I think I did. Just consider me the bearded cat-lady of the arctic.
I used to be a bilagáana, now I am a tanik, but my girlfriend just calls me a gringo. She could probably tell you I’m no good in either event. I live to head-butt kittens, and my greatest accomplishment in life is probably an incident of projectile vomiting. (Don’t skoff! It was brilliant.)
Mostly I teach for my food, but there was a brief period when I pushed puppies for a living (first pet’s free kids). I like spicy foods, foreign movies, RPGs, and bad jokes.
This blog has one theme and one thing only, whatever the Hell I feel like writing about at any given moment. That is all.
(Note: If you zoom-out from the map one click at a time, it’s kinda cool.)
