I'm very proud to be "from New Orleans". I'm not from here
originally, BUT...over the past 6 years I have felt very welcomed.
I feel like I belong here. It's not where I need to be. It's where
I WANT to be. If you know what I mean.
I'm a big Saints fan. Season ticket holder and hoping for another
phenomenal year, and was here for some monumental Saints events.
The 2006 re-opening of the Superdome, the game that took us to the
Superbowl and was at the Buddy D's Broads event. If you don't know
what that means, I'm sorry and who dat.
Friendships are very important to me. My close friends are truly
important in my life. They keep me emotionally correct. If you know
what I mean. I couldn't survive without them.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now work seems to be the major part of my day but looking for
fun things to balance that out. I recently pass on the editor duty
of our local newspaper so I need to fill that vacuum. Maybe
volunteer at a local museum or gallery.
I’m really good at
I'm good at dealing with other people. Not in a good or bad way,
but just dealing. And understanding where they're coming from, and
trying to get to what they're trying to say. I'm also good at
sifting out what you're trying to say as opposed to what you're
meaning to say. Doesn't always work out but I give it my best.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm Tom and I'm awesome (pronounced "owsome") Done and done.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:The Stand, because it was such a journey. Dilbert books. Not
the comics, but they wrote a few books on office life and I could
relate. I just started re-reading The Road which is horribly
depressing but a must read.
Movies: 1968 as a major influence to my life, Trey Parker films
(Cannibal the Musical, Orgasimo, Team America). On the more strange
side the Story of Rickey. If you know it, you know it.
Shows: Growing up my favorite show was Thunderbirds. More recently,
Six Feet Under,
Music: Fastball: The Way. Blue Man Group. The Might Be Giants is
kinda cool. Johhny Cash is AWESOME! Weezer's very cool. Pink
Sushi is awesome. Never say no to sushi dinner. Ethnic anything
wins. Byblos double points. Just discovered grilled oysters. YUM.
So food, pretty much anything but not vegan or strictly veggie.
The six things I could never do without
The first thing I could never do without are my friends, they are
very important to me. Family as well. Photos (the images of people
I care about). Music. Good wine. That's where I'm at right now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I do spend a lot of time thinking about where I want to go with my
life, what I want to do long term. So far still thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
My Friday night is sometimes at home being me, or out with people
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Naked karoke. Kidding. Or am I?
You should message me if
You can help expand the whole dating thing. I'm kinda new to this.
If you watched Deathproof and know the song that plays when the
credits roll at the end, message me. Because that's obscure, and if
you know that...oh my god.
