Those responsible for the old summary have been sacked.
Basically, I'm pretty awesome. I use my superior wit and sense of humor to cover for all other deficiencies I may have and my spirit animal is an American Gladiator named Nitro. I've got an awesome dog, an awesome sense of humor, an awesome grasp of a broad variety of interests, a group of awesome friends that I'm looking to expand via this site, and I keep myself in good shape considering how in love with cooking and good food I am (a lot).
I am the classic ENTP apparently because I've never scored as anything else. I love being around people and making them laugh.
I talk a lot when given the chance and say stupid things, but sometimes I don't.
Also, I don't drink but I'm cool with the bar scene and whatnot. About 5 years ago I decided it wasn't for me. It's a thing.
I'm a fan of the Atlanta Braves, Ohio State Buckeyes, and the Colts.
I'm an EMT and Pharmacy Tech according to the state licensing board but am not practicing because those jobs pay piss unfortunately, and I'm joining my third concurrent DnD group soon because I'm also a crazy person.
In a similar vein, I like lifting heavy things. After I'm done lifting them, I generally put them down. Oftentimes I will repeat this many times in a row. I like to eat big and lift big and gain great satisfaction therein.
I'm very good at cooking a limited number of dishes. One might call these dishes very "bachelor" in nature, but that'd be a great oversimplification. "Caveman" would be far more apt as my canvas for culinary arts general involves open flames and large pieces of meat and I have no truck with fiddly things like sauces and fine dining where the portions are tiny but the plates are silver.
I read a lot and know a lot of fun (albeit useless) stuff.
Movies: #1a is The Manchurian Candidate (the original) because it freaking owns and #1b is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind because sometimes I'm a big man baby. Also I enjoy the non-director's cut version of Donnie Darko, pretty much any documentary, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and very few other musicals, any Monty Python, those sorts of things.
TV: Parks and Rec, Justified, Archer, Venture Brothers, American Dad
Music: Neko freaking Case. Lana del Ray kick lately, Lindsey Stirling, The Pogues, The Chieftans, bluegrass in general, unexpected combinations like The Gray Album by DJ Danger Mouse, Dire Staits, Buckethead, horrible club pop music and heavy metal for the gym, Bright Eyes/Connor Oberst in general, singer-songwriter stuff, Josh Ritter especially.
Food: I will literally eat anything put in front of me except big mushrooms. Smaller mushrooms I've learned to tolerate, and I don't even dislike the flavor, it's the texture that kills me.
There's a special place in my heart for sushi, kimchi, big hunks of meat, turkey legs wrapped in bacon, tempeh, homemade hummus, homemade yeast breads (in moderation, carbs kills after all), Thai and Mexican, and pretty much anything spicy. In fact, the spicier the better. Still haven't run across a restaurant here in Bloomington that will make something murderously spicy but I am holding out hope.
Lifting weights. Or as I like to call it, 'intensive ferric psychotherapy.'
My brain extensions (smartphone/laptop)
Tea (Jade Oolong especially)
Just going to go ahead and list tiramisu again because it's just great.
This list is subject to change upon the event of future vexation.
Why does my stupid brain only get stuck on the world's worst songs (I'm looking at you, Shake It Out).
Given free time, I'll generally go out and try a new restaurant with whatever buddy is free. Friday night was my DnD night for years but now it isn't so I'm just kind of flapping loose to be quite honest
Bonus points go to any song that sounds peppy but is actually about soul-crushingly depressing things.
If you enjoy beards and good conversation
If you like talking about weight lifting and the evils of cardio
If you're a baseball or football fan
If you think tacos are appropriate any time of day, or if you just want to chat
I'm a pretty amicable dude and would love to hear/hear back from you
Also I'm new in town and would appreciate learning Bloomington as well as I knew Indy
