Urban Dictionary defines a road lizard as any type of lizard that is sunning itself on the hot pavement. So, needless to say, I have a very nice tan.
My road is nestled in a canyon by a lake in the foothills of a mountain range. My favorite pastime is taking a dip in the lake after a nice day of sunning or just sunning on the boat. Aside from that, I spend a lot of time at school or work. At the end of the day, I usually curl up in my nest in my burrow and read or write.
I've been reading a lot of urban fantasy lately: Dresden Files, Iron Druid Chronicles, Alex Verus, Cal Leandros, Hellequin Chronicles, Twenty Palaces, Mercy Thompson, Sandman Slim, Felix Castor, Demon Accords. All of which I highly recommend.
When I'm not reading or writing, I like to listen to music, and I love going to baseball games and horse races. I don't watch much tv, but I'm a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra, Castle, The Walking Dead, and Perception.
When it's time to eat, I'm a meat and potatoes kinda lizard. *licks my eye thinking about a medium-rare steak* I live off of sweet iced tea and lemonade in the summer months, and I have a coffee pot in my burrow to get me through the winter months.
If I don't get at least seven hours of sleep at night, I can be a very grumpy lizard, and if I'm really cranky, don't step out of your car on my road, because I will bite you.
I'm one of those lizards that, if attacked, can shed my tail. It'll squirm about for a minute until I can make my escape, then I'm pissed off because my tail's gone, but eventually, I just get over it and grow a new one.
