My self-summary
I have a different idea of recreation than most. I like projects. Standing at a bar exchanging small talk bores me to tears. I like to do things. I love playing sports, but I don't like watching them. I like to see the results of hard work. I get more enjoyment out of cooking dinner than eating it. I still believe I can accomplish anything. I don't get hung up on my many, many past mistakes. I have a sense of humor that ranges sarcastic to really, really sarcastic. I'm not afraid of looking goofy and do so often. I like kids. I'm smart enough to know how little I know. I'm a liberal. Religious fanatics scare me. Actually, all fanatics scare me. I believe education is extremely important and shouldn't end with college. I like being outdoors. I like the buzz I get from exercising till I'm exhausted. I will stand loyally by my close friends, even when they're in the wrong. Only after trouble has subsided will I kick their butt for their stupidity. I expect them to do the same for me. I still look up to my big sister.
What I’m doing with my life
Work, of course. Plenty of work. I run a lot, and I’m pretty fast. Not quite in the competitive class, but much faster than recreational runners. I have a daughter who is with me half-time. I’m a bedroom guitar player. I always have some new project in the works. I drink. And I send witty emails to chicks on online dating sites in hopes of impressing one of them someday.
I’m really good at
Getting things done.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not much. I typically come across as nice and normal at first. You have to get to know me before the true freak shows his face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm pretty well read, but read much less now than I used to. Been more textbook-type stuff lately. So much to learn; so little time. I love movies in general. Cohen Bros, Wes Anderson, Monty Python, all those mock-u-mentaries. . . especially Best in Show, and The Godfather (of course). I like music played my really good musicians. I could care less about the genre.
The six things I could never do without
A challenge
A friend
My kid
A new thing to learn
Being outdoors
And my dog
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Oh, F$@#! I have a problem slowing my brain down. I don't even know how to begin answering this question.
On a typical Friday night I am
. . . not out on the town. I don't really like the party scene. I'm probably in my garage working on some project. Or making bead necklaces with the kid if it's my weekend. Or maybe on a nighttime bike ride downtown wondering at the behavior of normal people. Or completely drunk watching a B-rated kung fu movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not very social. I'm extremely outgoing. But I have a difficult time with the monotony and idleness of most social events. For this reason, I'm trying to avoid dates that involve nothing more than sitting, eating, drinking, and talking. How about bowling? Do you like bowling?
