Getting to Know Alec
November 15, 2012 14 Comments
Though my first post for the blog was on Veteran’s Day, I figured I should post something about myself as a sort of introduction to those who don’t know me or those who’d like to know me better.
So my name is Alec, they called me Edge when I was serving as a Marine, and I’m online as Alec Edge in Goodreads, a Glitter Twin on Facebook, and I contribute to the Go-To Guys posts for Chicks & Dicks. If you’re curious about what I think is hot or interesting, my Tumblr is Alec’s Stash (NSFW).
Looks-wise, I’m 5’10″ and athletically built now that I’m back in “fighting form”, Thorny calls me an Otter to describe my level of hairy-ness, and I’ve got a cross between a fauxhawk and a mohawk that’s about 4″ high now. I lost my right leg above the knee, but Thorny says I still look like I could kill someone with my pinky finger. (I’m not so mean.)
I started dating Jazz’s little brother Carter in April, moved in with him in June, and I owe a lot of my sanity and soul to my man’s love and care. Their family has adopted me like they chose me and were waiting for my arrival. If you’d like some more history on me and Carter, T and J have that covered in Q = Questioning (where Thorny talks about Carter coming out), I Know What I Saw (where Jazz talks about me and Carter meeting for the first time), and My Cowboy Weekend posts (where my birthday party became a tribute to gay cowboys). Carter and I wrote for Chicks & Dicks about When Alec Met Carter, plus there’s me talking about My Experience in Uniform and Gay-for-You, That’s Not What I Call It.
That’s a lot of reading if you really want to know more about me, so I’ll end this post here. I’ll be back later to talk about trucks, marathon training, and No-Tech Weekends.
