I'm your typical thirty-something, hyper-informed (multiple degree)
I always feel like I'm one quarter short from being able to do a
load of laundry.
I tend to have a beard in the winter, but no beard in the summer.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a learning center, mostly tutoring kids for ACT and SAT,
among other things, and I enjoy myself as much as I can with the
rest of the time (which isn't to say that I don't enjoy my job). So
basically, work, bars (ideally in conjunction with trivia) and
political news. (Work, Play, Sleep and Repeat - in that order). I
also play kickball in the summer and regularly do crosswords and
I cheer for the Blackhawks, Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. (I won't
judge you if you're a Cubs fan.)
I’m really good at
Trivia, geography, knowing (and appreciating) good beer, logic and
algebra...and sitting on my couch, watching sports and beating the
commentators to their comments.
The first things people usually notice about me
My outward nature, and definitely my extremely red hair.
Note: looking at past pictures, my hair has gone from red to more
of a reddish-brown over the last few years. But my winter beard is
still all ginger

The six things I could never do without
Political discussions w/ my friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Becoming this country's de-facto leader and how cool dogs are.
On a typical Friday night I am
I work Saturdays, so usually nothing too extravagant.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can put my foot behind my head.
I wear flip flops as soon as it gets above 50 outside.
I DVR (and later watch) Jeopardy!
