My self-summary
Nobody is good at writing these things. So, I'll try to be honest. Not to brag, but I can be pretty awesome sometimes. Trust me.

Everybody always says "I love to laugh" and such; but honestly, who doesn't? Personally, I love to make others laugh. To me, there's nothing better than getting someone to laugh so hard they almost pee themselves. Almost. Everybody needs goals.
I'm just a Ben Wyatt looking for his Leslie Knope.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching youngins. Taming lions. Training seals. Herding cats. Saving the world. Chasing my own tail. Take your pick. It all feels the same sometimes. Now, I am an itinerant educator.

Basically, I'm impressed that I have all my shit together, finally. Car, job, bills; Its almost like I'm a real grown-up.
I’m really good at
Doing wheelies in wheelchairs. Pouring the perfect beer. Drinking that perfect beer. Lying to 5th graders. Back rubs. Cooking (no joke). Smoke signals. Finding humor in tough situations. Burning things. Directions and maps and stuff. Being awkward (lets have an awkward competition!)

I've been told I'm a good tour guide, so I've always got that to fall back on. Also, I'm really good at useless trivia. Being a history nerd, I LOVE useless facts about esoteric topics. Part of being a teacher is having an answer for everything. But, I'm a real history nerd, which makes me rather useful for trivia nights.
The first things people usually notice about me
My nose or my sense of humor . . . usually the nose gets there first. But, I've learned to love my nose and (almost) everything it smells.

Also, my beard. My glorious, luscious beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite movies are too numerous to list. I love film and it would be impossible to rank my favorites. Anything by Wes Anderson, the Coen Brothers, Scorsese, Tarantino, and the like.

Favorite Books: Catch-22, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Calvin & Hobbes (that counts!), Farenheit-451, Fear and Loathing in Los Vegas, Fight Club, Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and anything by Kurt Vonnegut to name a few. Although lately I have only been reading non-fictions.

Favorite Music: The old stuff, the new stuff, the classic stuff, the punk stuff. You know, the good stuff.

Favorite Shows: Simpsons, The Daily Show (religiously), Community, Orange is the New Black, The Office, The Walking Dead, Futurama, Venture Bros., The Boondocks, South Park, Parks & Recreation, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Arrested Development, Freaks & Geeks, Its Always Sunny, Archer, Saturday Night Live, Rocko's Modern Life, The League, The Wire and so many more.

I love food. I believe it is important to try everything at least once, so I try to be adventurous. I have tried: Snake, gator, kangaroo, camel, turtle, elk, wild boar, rabbit, deer, and probably a few others I cant remember. After all, whatever doesn't kill you, could make you violently ill for days.
Although I love to grill, I have been trying to find ways to eat healthier. I'm addicted to visiting the farmers' markets every weekend.
The six things I could never do without
My dog
Chocolate Milk
Craft beer
My Nalgene
Good coffee
Chocolate Milk (its worth repeating)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
taking a very long roadtrip over the summer. Where do you think I should visit?
On a typical Friday night I am
The same thing we do every night, Pinky, try to take over the world.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sing in the shower . . . badly.

Oh, and I suck at this whole dating thing. Can we skip the first few dates and just get to the part where its not awkward anymore and we're awesomely comfortable together?
You should message me if
if you ever wanted to visit a ghost town.
if you appreciate good beer and/or coffee.
if you have an awesome dog that wants to meet another awesome dog.
if you like visiting garage sales and flea markets.
If you can appreciate this:
if you're thinking about taking a long roadtrip out west this summer.

Also, judging by what I've read, it seems some males are, let us say, very open about sending photos of their, ummmmm, high-pressure vein canes. I can promise that is something I do not do.
