With all apologies to my mother and father, I was largely raised by television (though I spend almost no time watching it now). As such my communication is sort of seeped in pop-culture; I'm talking Simpsons references, "that's like the part in Ghostbusters where…", and the like. If that sounds irritating, well we're kind of at an impasse here already.
That's not to say I'm incapable of communicating about more serious, deep things. I actually prefer it to small talk. I'd rather talk about I don't know, feminism or your opinion on the afterlife. "Let's cut the shit and get into it" I'll say with a smile. Though I would also like to know where you're from and hear about a funny thing your cat did one time.
I have been told that I can be hard to read. I blame a dry sense of humor and an occasional tendency toward monotone. Just underneath that I assure you I am a festival of emotions. The other day I got misty-eyed at a Youtube comment so y'know, I can be sensitive.
A significant part of my sense of humor is predicated on the listener knowing that I'm not really an idiot. Just know that if I say something really really stupid, I'm probably kidding. Probably.
I'm always game to do something stupid. A cash-only bar warms my heart (not a big deal if you don't drink, I'm not one of them Bukowski-worshipping puds who mistakes alcoholism for a personality). I clean up pretty well. I can be a bit of a filth-mouth. Sorry in advance. Or not sorry, if you're also a bit of a filth-mouth. Please ask me anything else you want to know. I'll answer literally any question I'm asked.
Good description for the moment? It'll have to do.
