Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm kind of a weirdo. Perhaps I should start using the word
I work outside so I have a beard when it gets cold out and shave it
off when it gets warm out.
I prefer the English spelling of words.
I'm probably too immature for my own good. Not to be confused with
irresponsible, mind you.
I have a tendency to play devil's advocate, but it's all in
I exude my own brand of dry sarcasm, and I have a warped sense of
humour that makes me pretty good at Cards Against Humanity.
I take pictures of any flowers that I do not know so I can ID
I enjoy REEEEEEAALLY bad puns. For example, have you heard the
conspiracy theory that JFK was murdered by pro-Castro pigeons? The
night before the assassination, eyewitnesses heard groups of
pigeons softly saying "Coup, Coup..."
All in all, I'm a redneck with a bit of culture. I grew up on a
farm then fell in love with Chicago. My job has also made me a
redneck in the most literal sense. Currently doing native
restoration of Jackson Park, while living in Woodstock.
More to come later. Mayhap.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I hit the reset button about 2 years ago quitting my cushy gub'ment
job and went back to school so that I could do something I'm
passionate about. I got lots of criticism for it, but I'm happy
with my do-over, even though I probably won't make lots o money in
I work for an ecological restoration firm and I love it. I'm
currently managing the crew that's doing the native restoration of

management last May.

And the rest would depend on how obnoxious I'm feeling at the time.

Reading... I pretty much read field guides and scientific papers.
Kinda boring, I know. When I got a book called Plants of the
Chicago Region and geeked out about it something major.
Last book I read: Brief History in Time by Stephen Hawking. I
occasionally read passages from Marcus Arelius' Meditations.
Last fiction: Porno by Irving Welsh
Favorite author: Edgar Allen Poe
Minor correction, I just started reading my first fictional work in
years, and it's Dante's Divine Comedy. It's fun to read
I also read a lot of comic books.
Movies... As I've gotten older it seems like the dumber the better.
Jason X is one of the greatest comedies ever. And I like big, loud
eighties-style action movies. Like Robocop. It's been especially
nice lately since they've made a comeback.
I don't watch TV. I do watch some internet shows and some Netflix
though. I love Trailer Park Boys, and The Flash.
Music... I have over 1400 cds. I'm sure I have something you like
and something you don't. There's death metal, rap, punk, grunge,
industrial, classical, movie soundtracks, new wave, goth, pop, and
more in there. The genre I'm the lightest on is country.
Favorite artists include The Cure, NIN, The Replacements, Alice In
Chains, & Nobuo Uematsu
Food... Sushi, Peruvian, Mexican, Italian, Kuma's, and more
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Mint - esp Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum virginianum) or
A good laugh
Honourable mentions to my cats, and my black beauty Les Paul
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-How can an object can have a spin of 2? Damn you Stephen
-Plants: their flowers & their ecosystems
-How much better R. Kelly's music gets when he embraces his inner
scumbag. Same with Kanye. Please get crazier and more indulgent!
Then let's see that R. Kelly/Kanye crossover at the height of its

When I can, I like to do the karaoke.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Isn't admitting something here by definition not private?
So much for the non-answer, how about some of my musical guilty
pleasures: Lisa Loeb, Sarah McLaughlin, C&C Music Factory, and
Lionel Richie to name a few.
Some character flaws I'm willing to admit:
I'm a lousy cook. EDIT: I can cook chili and some soups now.
I can get impatient, yet,
I have a tendency to procrastinate.
I can be at times rather oblivious.
I'm working on these though.
