Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is what happens: I start writing
, and I can't stop. I'm like
that: a writer, that is. Anyway, I'm not a writer by trade;
fiction, ew. I went to school to teach history, but since no one
wants me to even though Rod Blagojevich says I can, I'm going into
retail management instead, unless I can get into grad school. Yeah.
Anyway, besides history, I love computers, St. Louis Cardinals
above all, great TV
shows and film
I am damned smart, insightful, and using too many words
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I hadn't updated this in four years, but since I'm married and the
paragraph is irrelevant you get to read this.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can write with the best of them, and my taste in television
and films (and my
ability to relate that taste) is better than yours (but not as good
as Tim Goodman or Roger Ebert's.) I'm quite intelligent (but not
annoyingly so; wait, is that possible?) and very analytical (but
not annoyingly so; shut up, joke of repetition.) I'd say I'm good
at dancing, but I never dance, and I drive fast but have never
raced for NASCAR. Or is it "Nascar?" I get them confused with
I'm also very, very good at radio
. I spent almost a decade in the
industry and can read and write news as well as produce broadcasts
with the greatest of ease. My on-and-off webradio show I hosted
with a friend sounds quite good for a thrown-together effort shoved
in the corner of a leaky basement.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am not other people, thus this question perplexes me. I guess
they notice I dress rather normal, if a bit on the dressy side
(khakis > jeans,) and my hair is anything but spectacular
(cowlicks < everything else in the world, including Reincarnated
Hitler.) I should have a neon sign above my head that screams
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: umm, I don't read enough; my one flaw! Let's substitute TV
shows and go with Wonderfalls
, Gilmore Girls
, Arrested Development
Sopranos, The Apprentice, 24
, Dead Like Me
, SNL, The Simpsons
others that make this list way too long.
, Garden State
, Back to the Future
, Office Space
, Ghost World
, American Pie
, Home Alone
, High Fidelity
, West Side Story
. We'll stop there, save to say
films do right by me, as do Star Wars
and Star Trek
Music: My taste in music sucks. Popular stuff mostly, especially
80's pop. Film scores make me tingle as well.
Foods: Blah American. Burgers. Psghetti. Chinese is fine.
Chicago-Style Hot Dogs are the new manna.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The internet, Cardinals baseball
television and movies, my XM Satellite Radio, roads to travel on,
and first and foremost Emily.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Films and television, history, roads (I'm a roadgeek; it's hard to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working, at a movie, travelling somewhere, or surfing
Wikipedia. I spend hours surfing Wikipedia
. I kid not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sometimes wish I was deaf so I would be motivated to become
fluent, not just polite, in American Sign Language
and would then get to use it all the time rather than speaking.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Um...I dunno. I used to have "you look like Rachel Weisz" here, but
Emily would probably kill you. So let's put "you don't look like
Rachel Weisz." Yeah. That's it.
