Well, well, well, what have we here?
Well, me, for one thing.
Who am I you may ask? Let me try to answer.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and anyone else in the audience (oh, I know there isn’t much of an audience, just humor me ok?)…
My name is Kiril Kundurazieff and, despite appearances, the name isn’t that hard to pronounce. Honest...
My friends call me The Mad Macedonian (or Houstonian), a cycling dude and a couple of lady cats by the name of Elvira and Sneakers.
I'm a single white male (but hope springs eternal!), age 54, who's a 1st generation Maceyugoserbulgarigreekadonian-American, and proud of it! I'm a former southern Californian (It's on the Left-Coast for all y'all Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Mark Levin fans out there), born and bred, who fled that sorry excuse for a state, for the great state of Texas, in September 2012.
I've been an avid walker all my life and a bicyclist since high school & have enjoyed frequent 20-60 mile jaunts on my trusty steed, including braving the fusterclucks that are the streets of Houston and the, way behind the times, Metro Transit System. An always interesting pair of fusterclucks, I am finding, but still fusterclucks.
I am owned by 2 lady cats; the 4 year old Elvira Mistress of Felinity, and her 8 month old protégé, Sneakers the Texian Tuxedo. They are, like Nikita before them, my creative muses in my cat writing.
My career was in the field of Reading Material Facilitator for 17yrs. and Directory Assistance Operator for 6, with a 2 yr. stint at Target as a cashier in-between.
After 3 years of unemployment Wal-Mart took me on as a cashier where I can now be found.
While late 2012 and early 2013 saw me deal with eye surgeries and eye cancer, the months since I finally got a job in September have been hard, especially financially, as I have shared on this blog; I am struggling to pay my few bills and especially my rent, each month, and been blessed to have been able keep things going this far thanks to some timely donations.
But enough with the worry for one day; Today is for celebrating the gifts for writing and speaking that God saw fit to give me and guide me toward discovering and learning to put to use.
