I generally don't have a whole lot to say about myself. I also like
to fly under the radar. I try not to get myself involved in the
affairs of others. I tend to be an ethical and rational person. I
would like a pet but a feel that I am away from home too much for
that to be practical. My primary hobby is solving puzzles of
various types. I like to laugh but I hate to be tickled. I am good
at reflecting on the past. I can remember the tune to a song but I
cannot seem to remember lyrics. Someday, I would like to take voice
and/or dance lessons. I drive a small car that most people feel I
am too big for. I don't have a long term life plan but I would like
to live in a city someday, at least 50,000. I procrastinate too
much. I like to understand problems which sometimes doesn't involve
solving them. I once sought out and purchased a bed skirt because I
was tired of looking at the box spring. I only receive art as
gifts, but I hang all of it. I have hung two bird feeders somewhat
recently and I am planning on hanging a third at some point. I like
to look up the weather and the inconsistency in the weather worries
me. I like to learn about natural disasters and extinction events.
I try to check the current events section of wikipedia at least
once a day. I find it easier to stay at home than to ask people to
hang out with me.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a teach high school math. It is something that I like a lot
but I won't stay in it forever. This is mostly due to the fact it
is math and problem solving I am passionate about. I am working on
a masters in math through Texas A&M, all online.
I’m really good at
Thinking logically. I am good at puzzles. Bustin' a move on the
dance floor. I don't hold back.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know. Maybe that I am always checking out my surroundings.
It used to be my beard, but it is gone. For now....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm not a big reader because I can be easily distracted, but my
favorite books are comedies and nonfiction about math and science.
Examples are Hitchhiker's Guide, Catch 22, Flatland, GEB. I also
really need to reread all of Calvin and Hobbes. I love that
Movies I liked enough to own in no particular order: Life of Brian,
Spaceballs, Gremlins, The Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic, Rushmore,

Underground, Fleetwood Mac, Mika, ELO. I listen to a lot of
Pandora. Lately, I have been listening to Today's Hits to try to
I like pretty much everything as food goes. I particularly enjoy

The six things I could never do without

I could do without"
Reality tv designed to make the characters look awful
Athletes dressing in nerd chic
People who purposely try to make others agitated
A reboot of any comic book or sci-fi franchise
Top down economic policies
Being so tired that it hurts all over and is very difficult to fall
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New projects I can make my kids do. Actually working out for a
change. New places I should go. Funny things, either jokes or
amusing situations. Math and the philosophical underpinnings of it.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am having a few drinks and possibly hanging out with friends.
Sometimes at a bar, sometimes at my apartment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have passed out too many times to count. I think it is really
funny. You will too until you witness it occur. Then it gets a
You should message me if
You have a cat that needs to be petted. You have sweet dance moves
and want to have a dance off. You like good beer. You are good at
convincing people to go out and have fun.
