I'm a Nebraska native, and while I went to the East Coast for college, I came back for family and friends, stable work (a career, not just a job), and the people in general (people wave to other drivers here... sometimes)
Away from work, I've got my standard guy stuff like sports, video games, movies and TV. I really enjoy softball in the summer and fall. It's a great competitive outlet and a good workout.
After we know each other a bit, my more distinguishing quality is my sense of humor. And yes, that's not the first thing anymore. I changed the question. Don't let The Man keep you down.
TV shows: Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, Castle, South Park, Revenge, Orange is the New Black, Warehouse 13, Eureka, and Archer. Modern Family when I can catch it. Also: Card-carrying member of the Firefly cult. You've been warned. You will likely be converted.
Lots of music, mostly the popular stuff, minus the twangiest country and harder rap.
Start with the Lord of the Rings books back in the day. Finished all five books of the Song of Ice and Fire series at a frightening pace. Couldn't put it down. Am now thoroughly depressed with the fact that I'm out of books to read, but the story's not done. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was a delight and you need to go read The Martian now. Right now. Stop reading my profile and go.
I'm a Midwestern, meat and potatoes kinda guy. Underrated food among adults: PB&J. It was good when we were kids. It's still good. I make liberal use of the fancy George Foreman I got for Christmas.
Other/humor: Cards Against Humanity. My sense of humor covers everything from lame puns to self deprecation to the dark and offensive. I see no reason not to laugh my way thru most of life.
-Nebraska football (born and raised)
-Duke basketball (it worked out well. Duke doesn't really have a football team, so there was no conflict with rooting for Nebraska while I was there)
-Good steak (we're spoiled here)
-The gym (a great workout leaves a great feeling)
-Foods that you don't eat while dieting.
-My reckless attitude toward the definition of 'six things'
Like it says up there in the little box, I don't drink much (trying to get into wine, recommendations welcome), but I enjoy happy hour with the gang sometimes as well.
-You have great taste in sweatpants, Netflix, throw blankets, and ice cream. Cuddling is serious business.
-You wish to discuss Westerosi politics, the finer points of Bistromathics, the ethical dilemma of The Genophage, or any other post-apocalyptic topic you like.
-You have some other good reason that isn't listed here.
