I'm a borderline over achiever, realizing damn I spent way too much time in a school to end up working in one.
I read, I write, I try to conquer? Outside of reading and writing, cooking and photography are sort of well my thing. There was a time I was strongly considering going into culinary school, but decided I'd rather read monotonous essays about some dribble with veiled references to archaic archetypes would be much more satisfying...I mean to help the children obviously.
Using my turn signals
Abusing the Oxford comma
Losing track of time surfing TVTropes.org
I'm not so good at:
Baking, like damn, I just can't get it figured out
+ Anything Sci-Fi (Bradbury, Phillip K Dick)
+ Poetry e.e Cummings, Hughes, Whitman
Animal House was right about John Milton, he's boring, long winded, and doesn't translate well to this generation.
When it comes to Music? It's mainly Alternative and Grunge and Classic Rock for me. The Pixies are the epitome of awesome, and don't get enough credit for what they accomplished. Seriously give them a listen, they got more hits than just "that" song from Fight Club. I'd say throw into that mix Jonathan Coulton if you love geeky things, science fiction, and math rolled into awesome music.
Movies and Television, I've found myself watching a lot less television as of late, my favorite shows though are ones that aren't even airing anymore; i.e LOST, Daria, The X Files, Twin Peaks and MST3K I mean who doesn't love awful cheesy B Sci-Fi movies, sarcastic quips at the drop of a hat, and a host who creates his own robot friends? However when it comes to current television; Survivor, The Big Bang Theory, Top Gear (UK), Top Chef, Kitchen Nightmares, Hells Kitchen, No Reservations...See a pattern here? Hence my interest in cooking and food.
I love Tex Mex, and BBQ it's just a shame that it seems nearly impossible to find decent places like that in NJ. I love when I visit my Dad down in Charlotte, NC the vast number of BBQ places you can find. I do enjoy cooking in my spare time, and some of my favorite things to prepare include, 3 Cheese Mac & Cheese with Bacon, Beef Wellington, and Garlic Chicken.
