Ayo, Update: So, while the beefy look was what I was rocking in
these pics, and I ALWAYS love the way i look, I have since dropped
30 lbs. as I got tired of my younger siblings jokes. It's okay; I
beat them up. With Love, of course :) !!!! Aight, aight (my pseudo
cool-guy speak for "Allrighty then"). This is me in a nutshell:
"Help! I'm in a nutshell! How did I get into this bloody great big
nutshell? What kind of shell has a nut like this?" Yep, totally
ripped from austin powers..
Heed these words-- if the aforementioned humor did not make you
laugh, mayhaps my profile be not for ye... No, forrreeal. Go look
for the guy that likes climbing rocks (I used to be an avid
adventurer, it was called taking the bus in West Oakland); look for
the guy that has traveled the south of France with nothing but
granola and water blessed by a Shaman; look for the guy who carries
an epi-pen just-in-case a squirrel keels over in his presence....
because... I am a regular~ish authentic American Man.
Now, understand; this "normalcy" does not make me boring,
predictable, nor common by any means. It allows me to discern
whether or not the completely spontaneous scenario in which I've
placed us in will end with me getting numerous stitches.. (So far,
I have a top-score of 23!!!!) All the while smiling and laughing
the whole time.. I guess holding it together in high intensity
situations is something life in Acorn housing ingrained into me.. I
think I keep my cool a little too well, haha!!!! (Had to slip in a
quick humblebrag... Eff it; life is short ;) ) Blergh. Enough about
me. Seriously. How was your day?
What I’m doing with my life
Derp. Living it. Loving it. Learning it. (great big cheesy smile)
I’m really good at
Cooking. Eating food which I've cooked. Accepting the superfluous
compliments of others whom I have allowed to share the Manna from
the Heavens which is my cooking..... aka being a GIANT
goofball...... Also, being a single Father; so sayeth my spawn.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot. But when I'm not, I win stare downs with creepy
dudes. Ha Ha. Seriously though, I am a big ole Teddy Bear.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As far as books go I am kinda obsessed with Anne Rice novels; my
favorite movies are a healthy balance of comedy, sci-fi, and
dramas. For example: Anchorman and the 40 year old virgin are
guaran-Damn-teed to have me trying to catch my breath, I laugh so
hard.. I'm trying to watch less t.v. but right now, Justified
totally has my attention; previous likes in this category are Lost
(every damned episode), The Ricky Gervais show, and Scrubs (you
gotta hear my Dr. Cox-ian rants--they are for lack of an even more
over-the-top description, God-like)..my music varies by mood and
tends to be somewhat eclectic so don't be surprised when some Cass
Elliot starts and I sing along. Coheed and Cambria is my all-time
fav band. MF Doom is my fav rapper. I think I've listened to
Grounds For Divorce by Elbow about a thousand times; I sing that
sh*t 'till I'm hoarse.... I want to say that I prefer "old school"
rap, but that makes me feel old (how the hell is Snoop's Gin And
Juice old school?!?!!) and besides, having a teenager means that I
hear the "new school" stuff quite frequently. I LOVE r&b, 70's
soul, 80's rock, 90's hip-hop and the ought's ballsiness to take
all of those genres and throw them all into one freshly baked xmas
fruitcake. Oh yeah, and I recently discovered that I get the
Beatles now; Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds goes grrreat with
The six things I could never do without
1. My Daughter. PLEASE let me know if this is a problem for you; I
can show you where to take those knock-offs and kick some nice
2. A combo of time, silence and calm; with which to meditate.
3. ESPN (yeah, I'm a dude)
4. Berating inanimate objects (who's got the upper hand NOW mr.
all-in-one scanner/printer thing?!!?!!)
5. Wearing my sunglasses at night
6. Openly admitting that I do dumb shit like wearing my sunglasses
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether or not being a hopeless romantic will ever pay off....
On a typical Friday night I am
Being...... AWESOME!!!!!! Wanna join in?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sing Rod Stewart songs in the shower, LOUDLY.
