I'm that person you used to know who used to do really absurd shit and it always seemed to work out. Quit your job in the recession, hook up with a foreigner and bring her home, join the military because you believe it's justified, and at the end you've got a wife and home and theoretically a UAZ van in Bulgaria that the local teens are probably having a great time with.
I've written a couple of novels too, they're shameless self indulgence.
What I’m doing with my life
Killing time for the next five years as a business owner, maybe having a few kids. Once my obligations are up it's all about disappearing into the wind. Latvia. Slovenia. Who knows.
I’m really good at
I like to think I'm pretty decent at a lot of things, including
being humble enough not to say that I'm really good at them. My
most honed skills would be in the arena of remembering a ton of
otherwise useless and irrelevant data and recalling it at opportune
times. In addition I'm fairly good at analyzing systems and looking
for ways to improve efficiency, this is applied 10% to my job and
90% to trivial games and avoiding traffic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My taste in music, movies, and food is shameless. There are few
things that have come to annoy me more than listening to people
drone on about why their subjective tastes are better than the
subjective tastes of others. People like the things they like, and
whether their reasoning is defensible or not I'm beyond bored by
people who who feel the need to inject their superiority into the
Short list of personal favorites: Frankenstein, Lolita, Oscar
Wilde, Dawn of the Dead, Transformers (1985), Workaholics, Arrested
Development, Seinfeld, Mindless Self Indulgence, Girl Talk, Autre
There is no short list for food. I hate dill and cilantro but I
love all things not dill and cilantro.
The six things I could never do without
I could survive with a notebook and pen on a desert island, but a
stable internet connection and some pants would certainly help.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Misinterpretations of history and international law.
-Cinematography in amateur/homemade pornography.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking myself into oblivion while playing emulated Nintendo
games, having some people over for a few board games, or just
tossing my feet up and enjoying a movie.
You should message me if
You read whatever you needed to and your interests and mine still align. We don't need to agree on smoking to grab a beer and we don't need to talk the Armenian genocide to be romantic. Of course if we agree about those things it doesn't hurt.
