My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Writing a good self-summary that you can use to sell yourself in just a few paragraphs is a very tall order. Plus, to make matters more difficult, you have to be funny, witty, and most important of all, not boring. Since I think that is next to impossible, I'm going to experiment with not even trying. Instead, I'll simply provide you with a few random observations about myself:

--Like the profile name says, I'm from Texas. No, I don't have a 10-gallon hat, I never rode a horse to school, nor have I had a tumbleweed tumble across my backyard. But, one stereotype is true: we're militant about keeping beans out of our chili.

--I'm a pretty rabid Georgia Bulldog fan. Saturdays in the fall belong to the Dawgs. I wish I could go to more games.

--The quickest way to my heart is through my funny bone. If you can make me laugh, you earn big points in my book.

--I think that I straddle the jock/geek divide extremely well. I'm just as comfortable talking about/watching football or baseball as I am Doctor Who or Star Trek.

--I'm passionate about politics, and I harbor the not-so-secret hope that one day that it can reflect the West Wing rather than the batshit crazy, tea party driven reality we face today. I measure the greatness of a politician against Josiah Bartlet. Despite my passion for the subject, it's becoming harder to not get disillusioned.

--One of my greatest regrets is not developing an aptitude and love for science at a young age.

--I have a strange talent for voices. I bet I can make you laugh with at least one of my impressions.

--I'm not too wild about the term "foodie," but I'm constantly on the hunt for great new restaurants. I'm always taking suggestions for new places to try. I'm also a decent cook when I decide to try.

--I keep telling myself I want to try the Sublime Donut burger at Cypress Street Pint & Plate, but I always seem to opt for something else. I need someone to goad me into it.

--I will be haunted for the rest of my life by Game 6 of the 2011 World Series and the final drive of the 2012 SEC Championship Game.

Was that better than some long-winded self-summary? You tell me.

Want to know anything else about me? Just ask!

I'm looking for what I expect most people are looking for: a partner to share my life with. I don't have a long check list of things that I am looking for because I think each person can bring something great and unexpected to the table, and I don't want to miss out on that simply because they don't check off all the boxes on a list. That being said, I think a good sense of humor and a caring nature are very important.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Former family law attorney now working at CDC (no, I don't about the secret work re: zombies, but yes, I'm trying to find out.) I normally work in a policy office doing policy work and budget formulation, but I just started a 6-month stint in our General Counsel's office. Who knows, maybe I'll try to stay.

I've only been in Atlanta for about 18 months (Athens for 2 years before that). I used to practice law in Texas, but it was a soul-crushing and unfulfilling experience, so I went back to graduate school for public administration so that I could enter public service.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm great at trivial pursuit, but terrible at Scrabble. Really, REALLY bad at Scrabble! I'm a great listener and I love to make people laugh.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Friends and family
2. Good food
3. Baseball and football
4. Comedy
5. Diet coke (seriously, I might have a problem)
6. My pets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I just bought a house, so right now I'm thinking about paint colors and ceiling fans. Also, the future. Baseball. Politics. The stars. I also spend too much time trying to figure out how the transportation planners in this city still have jobs. Seriously, the traffic here is the worst!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably hanging out with friends, playing poker, watching tv, at a movie or a ballgame. I might also be spending some time trying to get to know Atlanta.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was such a nerd when I was a kid that I decided to forego medical attention on a cut that certainly required stitches so that I could go see Star Trek: Generations. The thing is, I still don't regret that decision.
