Partly truth and partly fiction.
Heading every which direction,
but the lonely way back home.
I didn't really get to travel much as a kid. I've been all over the country, but I've still never traveled abroad. I think the first country I want to visit is North Korea.
A Pittsburgher who actually works in the steel industry. Yes, you found me.
When I grow up, I want to be either an unstoppable force or an immovable object.
Or a Jedi. That'd be sweet.
I'm also between 6'1" and 6'5", depending on the convenience store that I'm fleeing.
I'm all over the place with movies, but I like all the staples (Shawshank, Die Hard, Mel Brooks, etc.) and some more indie-type ones (A History of Violence, Donnie Darko). The Princess Bride, The Godfather, Thank You for Smoking, This Is The End, Harold and Maude, Star Wars, Star Trek, The Pursuit of Happyness, Don Jon, Blow, Kill Bill, Milk, Ernest Goes to Camp.
I dig HBO, Netflix (House of Cards, OITNB), documentaries, and British TV. I despise reality shows (except for semi-educational ones like Pawn Stars) and most primetime network television. Aaron Sorkin is pretty much the man.
When I'm studying or working, I like Edith Piaf. Otherwise, I'm into singer-songwriters, classic rock, jazz, Motown, blues, some 90's stuff, and gypsy punk. Pandora knows what I want.
Onions are gross. I lie at restaurants sometimes and tell the waiter I'm allergic, just to make sure they don't put any in my food.
Diet Coke/TaB/Dr. Pepper 10. [Edit: I've developed a taste for the generic pop they sell at Aldi's. It's like all three mixed together.]
MATHS! I WANT ALL THE MATHS!
Board games with old friends.
Late coffee nights at Eat n' Park with old friends.
Road trips, especially spontaneous ones.
Fresh baked bread.
My favorite Union Jack socks.
Don't tell me how many favorite things to have, website.
Have you ever noticed that the Hulk's shirts always get ripped to pieces, and yet his pants always stay right in place? What's up with that? Is he wearing sweats or something?
I'm hyper-competitive when it comes to board games. I might even do the Dirty Bird in your face when I win Settlers of Catan. Please don't take it personally; it's just the song of my people.
I have a thing for 80's dance music. It's bad. Real bad. In fact, it's this bad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=355Fk8drgZE
I do not know who most pop stars are. I had no idea who Robin Thicke was or what he was famous for before he was assaulted onstage by the ogre that ate Billy Ray Cyrus' poor daughter.
Who the hell is Drake?
There are three films (and only three films) that bring me close to tears. The end of Brian's Song, the first ten minutes of UP!, and the part where Jim Brown gets shot in The Dirty Dozen.
If you can answer me this: When I see the sea again, will the sea have seen or have not seen me?
Also, no cats. I've dated a number of women with cats, and I'm just way too allergic to even try anymore. No dice.
EDIT: OK, you can have a cat. But you'd better be awesome.
