I'm from Upper Michigan, but now live just outside Minneapolis (Plymouth, to be specific). I'm a fan of books, sports, movies, humor of all descriptions (smart humor especially), and the serial comma. I am not a fan of people being angry, using cell phones while driving, attempting to be persuasive about politics or religion, or any combination thereof.
I will respect your right to root for whatever team (or lack of team) you like, logical or not, as long as you respect my right to root for Detroit's Red Wings, Tigers, Lions, and Pistons and the US national soccer teams. (I grew up in Michigan.) This basic reasoning also applies to political and religious affiliations.
I generally make a point of not buying stuff I know I'm not going to use, but I do have a weakness for the $5 DVD bin. I don't wear a tie if I can help it; I'm much more at home in a hoodie.
