I'm goofy, affectionate, geeky, a movie lover, honest to a fault, clean, making a decent living, and generally happy. But as Pooh said, "It's so much more friendly with two." Shall we?
"Do you need anybody? I need somebody to love. Could it be anybody? I want somebody to love." Bonus points if you know these words.
What I’m doing with my life
For the first time in my life I feel really proud about what I'm
doing professionally. I'm making educational videos for kids!
I’m really good at
I'm a good Flash programmer, I'm super organized, I'm a wizard with
Microsoft Excel, and I bake a fantastic pumpkin cheesecake. Oh, and
I've been told I'm a good kisser.
The first things people usually notice about me
People notice my blue eyes and my goofiness and my encyclopedic
knowledge of worthless trivia.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like a lot of movies. I like everything from Sci-Fi to Romantic Comedy to Documentaries. Any film can be entertaining and touching if it's really well done. Favorites include Star Wars, The Princess Bride, Young Frankenstein, When Harry Met Sally, The Shawshank Redemption, Across the Universe, Field of Dreams, Moulin Rouge, Back to the Future, The Blues Brothers, Blade Runner, Fight Club, Raiders of the Lost Ark, L.A. Story, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Se7en, The Usual Suspects, Wall-E, and many more.
On TV I'm currently watching the last season of Mythbusters, The Big Bang Theory, and a few others. Past favorites include Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Seinfeld, Dexter, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Friends, and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (I like Trevor but he's no Jon Stewart).
I don't read as much as I'd like to. I loved the Ender's Game series, the Harry Potter series, Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein, the Rendezvous With Rama series by Arthur C. Clarke, Shopgirl by Steve Martin, and the Khaled Hosseini novels The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. I most recently read The Martian and it was fantastic.
My musical tastes tend toward both classic rock and singer/songwriters. The Beatles, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Garbage, No Doubt, Green Day, 10,000 Maniacs, James Taylor, Queen, The Police, and many more.
Food! I love food! My favorites are probably Mexican and Italian, but I also love Mediterranean, Asian, and American. I can be just as happy with a cheeseburger as with a steak. I love to try new restaurants, and I have NO food intolerances or allergies. None! Just sayin'.
The six things I could never do without
Democracy. Tolerance. Affection. Storytelling. Learning. The
You want a more materialistic list? How about air conditioning,
iPhone, chocolate, Coca-Cola, blue jeans, and the Internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The things I'm supposed to be doing. I have a long continually-revolving to-do list that I try to avoid.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a happy hour with my coworkers, or at a movie with friends, at
the Dallas Arts District, or at home catching up on the TV shows on
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...is that I have a history of embarrassing injuries. Remember to
ask me what I did to sprain my ankle so badly that I had to do
physical therapy for six weeks.
You should message me if
...you're smart but not pompous, you're funny but not insane,
you're affectionate but not needy, you're kind, you're cute, you
like to smile, and you're interested in me (always flattering).
