Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Trying to re-write this AGAIN, and not having much luck. I hate
talking about myself, and I always hated the essay questions in
skool. All I can come up with are the cheesy, cliche things like
"I'm a good listener, have a great sense of humor" etc.
I used to be a DJ, did it part time for about 7 years, mostly
weddings and private parties. If that isn't cheesy..... no, I never
considered myself to be the corny wedding DJ that everyone would
laugh at. So if you like tons of oldies on your iPod, I can hook
I'm more of a Pandora guy than a radio guy. That said, primary
station on my car is WTOP, and NPR on Saturday mornings for CarTalk
and Wait Wait (although lately I have just streamed the latter two
sometime during the weekend).
I'm a finance/tech geek wanna be. In my current position, I hold
the purse strings for a large IT project. Obviously I am better
with numbers than words!
Can someone explain this friend/enemy thing to me?!? Maybe it's a
Friends of Carlotta/Enemies of Carlotta thing? (Seriously doubt
anyone gets that reference....)

Just FYI, the selfie with Sen. McCain, from July 2015, doesn't
necessarily reflect my political views. However it was neat to run
into him at the airport and it was HIS idea for the selfie. Pretty
cool of him!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Rediscovering vinyl. Just purchased a replacement, entry level
turntable and pulled out my old LPs. Also purchased about a dozen
other oldies last weekend.
I’m really good at

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm... My height? Almost 6-1, not a giant but... Or maybe my David
Letterman-esque gap toothed smile?? If it's on the weekend, it's
probably the fact that I didn't shave. :-)

Lately I've been getting into Big Bang Theory, as well as watching
all 279 episodes of the old Hawaii Five-O! Love the Colbert Report
and Daily Show when I remember to watch them!
I have very eclectic tastes in music, and have about 11,000 songs
on my computer from my DJ days. Sometimes even I'm surprised if I
put iTunes on shuffle!
Food... hmm... sadly I probably eat too much (that's why I need to
start going to the gym again!). Love just about anything!
I should read more than I do. Last books I read were Wicked (saw
the show in NYC a couple years ago) and George Takei's "Oh Myyy!".
I like the traditional male genres (Stephen King, Tom Clancy, Dan
Brown), and recently read Complete Book of Poems by Carl Sandburg.
Oh, and Curious George is always a "go to".
Update on the reading: I recently purchased a Kindle Fire HD. Who
knew you could download books in addition to playing Freecell and
Words With Friends?!? Now I have to see if I can download Curious
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.My grown kids
2. My iPhone
7. My ability to count to six!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How nearly every sentence in my profile ended with an exclamation
point! And good god, did I really answer 523 questions???
Speaking of which, I also wonder how some of you have "Y'all got
issues" instead of the generic "Questions" at the top?!
And even though I have it checked off, what exactly is "short term

wicked bed head???
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Right now not much but looking to change that. I mean really, why
else would I be typing this on my iPhone?
During baseball season I'm probably staying up too late watching
Vin Scully and the Dodgers!
I'm also cleaning up my music on my computer. I've most recently
gotten it down to just 1200 duplicated songs in my iTunes!
