Not sure how to describe myself but here's my attempt. I love
politics - I think following them with the media is the best
reality TV. Seriously, you can't make things up better than
evangelical leaders getting caught doing meth with male prostitutes
in a secret effort to divorce their wife (I'm looking at you, Ted).
Or when congressmen are debating on the house floor, and people
like Alan Grayson say things such as "Republicans want you to die
quickly" or call an Enron lobbyist a K-Street whore. I also got to
meet Bill Clinton, hug Hillary, shake Al's hand, and grimace at GW
When I'm not working, I'm trying to figure out where to go next - I
love to travel. Currently in the mix is Canada and Central America
- but I've been to Russia, Ukraine, Finland, Mexico, Dubai, and Abu
Dhabi. Although, i've found it difficult to travel out of school. I
mean - as a student you can get money to do these things .... but
my employer is less inclined to let me live in a foreign country
for 6 months on account of "broadening my horizons".
Lets see if I can think of some more cliches. I like movies,
reading, and all that stuff. Going out is fun occasionally - and
people are especially in luck when they see me at a club since it's
like a free comedy show. Knowing that my dancing in clubs sucks
(i'll blame it on the inebriation), I've tried my hand at Swing
dancing. I'd love to pick it back up again, and try some lessons at
Salsa Noche - but none of my friends are cool enough to come with
I'm a pretty particular person as well. Some people think i'm an
asshole. I think it's because I typically either get along great
with somebody, or they absolutely loathe me. But I'm a strong
believer that looking out for you and your own isn't a bad trait,
and going after what you want isn't rude - its ambitious (Thats the
Ayn Rand in me I guess). So take it as you will.
I am extemporaneous, jubilant, and quirky
What I’m doing with my life
Loving the fact that i'm (semi) unemployed, but was fortunate
enough to save up for it.
I’m really good at
Laughing at myself, guitar hero (I **almost** got through Fire and
Flames on expert once!), making martini's (Dirty Stoli up), making
actually palatable drinks when there's only a medley of
disconcerted liquor left, using big words that I don't understand
but convincing others I do... the list goes on.
I can also use a semicolon - thanks theoatmeal!
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea.... maybe boisterous comments? My nose? Some people
have even said I remind them of Jim from The Office - but those
people are racist; All Polish people look the same to them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books would include The Stranger, Catch-22, Atlas
Shrugged, Brave New World, 1984, Beneath the Wheel, Michael
Crichton novels, Neuro Mancer, pretty much most stuff by Lermentov,

Homosapien, Tribe Called Quest, Souls of Mischief, Kool Keith),
Punk from the 90s (NOFX, Rancid, Bad Religion, Anti-Flag), some
metal, and obscure eastern-european pop music. I'm kinda stuck in
the 90s with most of it though.
The food I love is a fantastic chimichanga, and Hy-Vee salad bar
(They have all-you-can-eat cheesecake dessert!)
The six things I could never do without
I'm going to turn this into the six things I CAN do without.
1. Shady People.
2. My car. I hate paying insurance, inspections, et cetera. I wish
KC was a public transport city, but it isn't, and I'm not about to
buy a fixie to get around.
3. Computers. If Irony doesn't bitch-slap you right now, stop
4. Глупые Американцы.
Well I guess thats only four.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How Americans are as indoctrinated with patriotism in public
schools as other countries we loathe are; Namely China and Russia
(Fun fact: When saying the pledge of allegiance before WW2,
American schoolchildren used to do what is now regarded as the Nazi
salute. It's called the Bellamy salute. Look it up.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Not sure how to answer this. I guess i'm either out with friends or
at home hanging out. But what the hell does that mean? Either I do
something on Friday nights or I don't? That isn't very
We'll go with "Stuff" as my final answer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am currently in a wine club because one day, I want to walk into
a posh french restaurant and order an expensive bottle of wine.
When the waiter asks if the wine is acceptable - I spit it out and
curse the Sommelier in French, while waving my hands like an angry
Italian. I then proceed to demand free dinner and a bottle of
Cristal, on account of them trying to desecrate my palate.
You should message me if
If you want to talk about anything from objectivism to politics to
beer. Or if you can suggest somewhere I haven't been in KC that's
new and fun. Please don't if you think P&L is fun, or if you
listed your orientation as 'Bisexual' because you make out with
your female friend to get the attention of men.
Bonus points if you find the Perry Bible Fellowship to be
