This is the fourth in our series of 12 customer profiles.
Jantzen is a rare find - he's a captivating cocktail of vulnerability and strength with tenacity chased back for good measure and a garnish of brilliant wit with a taste of dark comedy. As our next profile subject, he gives us the recipe to make a unicorn, he waxes poetically about a life of luxury with Matt Bomer, Ben Cohen and tequila.
Where are you from? Born and raised in Honolulu. How long have you lived in Hawaii? All my life except 12 years in Atlanta, GA shortly after college. What's your relationship status? Dire. Will someone special please rescue me from a future life of adopting cats? What are your favorite qualities in a man? Let's start with the low hanging fruit (no, I'm not referring to a man's junk)...breathing is a must. After that, he's kind, creative, intelligent, funny, masculine but not uptight about being gay. He's confident, but not arrogant. Financially responsible. He's highly sexual but committed, honest passionate about life and not afraid to laugh at himself. Also, he has good personal hygiene, please! Oh! Muscles help. So basically, a unicorn.
What are your chief characteristics? According to my friends I'm sarcastic (and sometimes I even manage to be funny at the same time). Other than that...um...I don't like this question. Next!? What's your idea of happiness? Being somewhere beautiful or luxurious (preferably with a gorgeous view) with my friends and loved ones (and I hope one day soon, my life partner) talking, laughing, eating, drinking, playing and just being our silly, crazy selves... and for a time just forgetting about the rest of the world and its problems. What's your idea of misery? Writing about myself for a blog where total strangers can judge me....just kidding. :-) If you weren't yourself, who would you like to be? Matt Bomer or Ben Cohen come to mind. Both are handsome, talented and accomplished in their respective ways and also unafraid to be advocates for our community.
Where else in the world would you like to live? So many places in Europe or South America. It would be a huge mental exercise to narrow down the list. Too much history, culture, food, people and natural beauty to pick just one place. Who are your favorite heroes of fiction? So many! Definitely the ones who are powerful but also struggling with their humanity. I'll admit that I'm a geek, so comic book superheroes like Wolverine are my favorites. hat talent would you like to be gifted with? Something so amazing I would be insanely rich from it. Pro athlete? Best-selling author? Well something like that or someone able to eat whatever they want and not have to exercise all that much, yet still have the hottest body ever! (That's a talent, right?) Your favorite drink? Tequila! What would you tell others about Bacchus Waikiki? Bacchus is just a great bar...good drinks, friendly, down-to-earth staff and management, nice mix of locals and visitors, good drinks, casual, comfortable atmosphere, good drinks... Anything else to add? That's enough questions already. I need a drink now.
