--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.
