My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
BASICS: Basically (har har), my name is Tim. I've been tormenting Earthlings with my presence for the past twenty-nine years. I have a degree in Mass Communications from Sam Houston State University. I also heartily believe this sounds entirely too much like a game show introduction. (Big money! No whammies!) I'm moving back to Houston by year's end.

DORKY: Yes, I too, embrace the title dork. Perhaps it's the endless hours spent playing games such as Mario Party, Super Smash Bros., Final Fantasy, Paper Mario, or a myriad of PC games. Perhaps it's the mild obsessions with Garfield and Peanuts. Or is it because I throw parties for events like the release of Star Wars movies? Like the mystery of Tootsie Roll Pops, the world may never know. However, it is (at least in my dream world) an endearing trait. What is wrong with being a little child-like, I say?

- Blue Bell ice cream in many of its heavenly forms (especially ones with 'cookie' in the title).
- caramel macchiatos.
- reading.
- late nights with friends.
- Mario Party.
- alcohol in its girlier, tastier (or tasteless) forms.
- laughing so hard it hurts.
- the Wallflowers.
- good cries.
- cuddles.
- Star Wars.
- Ewan McGregor movies.
- any girly, sappy movies.
- days spent entirely inside malls.
- book stores.
- lemonade and cookies.
- writing.
- novel typefaces.
- pillow fights.
- screeching like a banshee. (This is my version of singing.)
- homemade hot chocolate.
- homemade chocolate chip cookies.
- anything chocolate, really.
- shoes.
- the ability to form coherent sentences.
- sleeping in.
- the professional line of Adobe products.
- daydreaming.
- hugs that say 'I miss you.'
- playing in the rain.
- Italian cream sodas.

- student loan payments.
- popped collars.
- tobacco in all of its horrendous forms.
- internet shorthand.
- excessive punctuation!!! Is this really necessary?!?!?!?!
- ugg boots.
- arrogance, ignorance, and other generally annoying personality traits.
- littering.
- the word 'faggot.'
- just about any Microsoft product. (People who worked on producing IE, Outlook, Frontpage, and Publisher were obviously overpaid. Of course, there are exceptions; MSSQL databases seem efficient.)
- anything annoying, really.

EVEN MORE RANDOM, USELESS INFO: I'm a pretty happy and optimistic person (especially after a drink or two). I have a cat that I adore, even though she randomly attacks me. I prefer crunchy to smooth peanut butter. I eat grilled cheese sandwiches with ketchup. I drink pickle juice. I'm not good at deciphering poetry. I like to drive with one hand. I read a lot of contemporary fiction. I ran out of room for quotes on my Facebook profile. I can fix your WordPress blog, but I had trouble learning my manual can opener. (My kitchen was covered in olive juice. Oops.) I enjoy dancing and singing like a moron in my living room.

"The bottom line is, couples that are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everyone else, but the difference is they don't let it take them down. One of those two people will stand up and fight for that relationship every time and if it's right and they're real lucky, one of them will say something." - Dr. Perry Cox, [scrubs]

JD [as Robin]: Holy inferiority complex, Batman! How low is my self-esteem that I'm the sidekick in my own fantasy?

JD [as Alfred]: Damn you, sir.

JENNA: I thought you'd never ask!
- 30 Rock

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm doing customer service right now. Wii! ...Not. I'm also studying for the GRE so I can start my Master's in Library Science next year.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- spilling liquids.
- knocking things over.
- confusing people, including myself.
- saying awkward things.
- forgetting where I put my keys or wallet or chapstick or sanity.
- making fun of people.
- consuming vast quantities of soda or Kool-Aid.
- watching reruns of [scrubs] and Garfield & Friends.
- exaggerating. I'm super, uber, amazingly awesome at it.

As for things that actually come in handy, no, I'm not good at many of those.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You've probably already noticed the first thing that you noticed about me, eh?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: "The Last One I Read." (That's from The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by the way.) Other authors and books I enjoy include, but are most definitely not limited to:

- The Alchemist and most other works by Paulo Coelho.
- East of Eden by John Steinbeck (whose writing style I greatly enjoy).
- almost anything by David Sedaris.
- The Little Prince by Saint Someone-Or-Other.
- the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire.
- a lot of other contemporary fiction.

I also admit that I like some romantic chick lit (the books that have actual storylines and character development, not Harlequin).

MOVIES: I'm a child at heart, and I'm also a great big sap. I love kid movies and any type of romantic comedies. I also feel compelled to state that I have NO desire to see "Twilight" (because I don't like vampires, even though "he isn't scary," not because it's popular). I don't buy many movies, but the ones I do buy I generally watch many, many times (except for short lapses in judgment such as "Never Been Kissed" and "Sleepless in Seattle"). Some notables include:

- Wall-E
- Ella Enchanted
- Ever After
- Cinderella
- Cars
- Finding Nemo
- Stardust
- Big Business
- Moulin Rouge
- Date Night

I do also enjoy some other types of movies, but they are not so fun the second time around, so I just see them at the theatre.

MUSIC: I was raised on oldies, and I know them better than a lot of the garbage that is recycled on the Top 40 stations (though I do enjoy some popular artists; I'm not that elitist about music). I enjoy music from the 90s and relaxed, laidback music. I find the upbeat songs on my iPod when I am driving and when I jog at the park. As with movies, I tend to play the same albums/songs/artists over and over and drive people crazy.

- The Wallflowers/Jakob Dylan
- Jack Johnson
- Pete Yorn
- John Mayer
- Hellogoodbye
- Owl City

TV: I mostly use my TV to play video games, but I have seen every episode of Garfield & Friends, [scrubs], 30 Rock, Murphy Brown, and Better off Ted.

FOOD: Mexican and Italian are my favorites. I'm really picky about food, but I like almost anything drenched in cheese. I have to admit that I'm not a very adventurous eater. I'm the guy who always orders the same thing (or one of a few things) once I have been to a restaurant a few times.

VIDEO GAMES: I know you didn't ask, but I play them a LOT, so I'm going to tell you anyway. I really like the Mario and Final Fantasy franchises, and I've played most of the games they're comprised of. I really like RPGs in general, but I don't play MMORPGs because I actually suck at video games, and then the people I party with get all mad when I accidentally make them die. (Whoops.)

- Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (my first RPG and all-time favorite game).
- the "Paper Mario" series.
- the MarioKart series.
- Mario Party 5, 6 and 7.
- Karaoke Revolution games. I should note I rarely play these sober.
- Smash Brothers.
- Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix.
- Final Fantasy 8. (This was my first Final Fantasy, and I related to Squall.)
- Theme Hospital.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Video games. I'm kind of a Nintendo fanboy.
2) My laptop. Except I wish it was a Mac.
3) My iPhone. Without it, I feel disconnected from civilization.
4) Companionship. I heart my family and friends.
5) Autonomy. My hat's off to you military folks, but that just ain't for me.
6) Tweezers. Otherwise, my eyebrows will merge with one another and then plot to take over my forehead. You think I jest, but it's true.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- what grad school will be like. (Not the death of me, I hope.)
- how I'll write about certain events in my LiveJournal.
- how I can insert random words like "diatribe" into everyday conversation.
- how I would redesign things in Adobe InDesign.
- why people are unable to proofread. ("No Pet's Allowed" drives me nuts!)
- arbitrary things like, "Why did OKCupid pick exactly six things I can't do without? What is wrong with other numbers? What made six better?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The same thing I do every night, Pinky!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This section is really dumb. If you're going to put something on the internet for the world to read, is it private? Um, no.

I'm pretty much an open book. However, I'm not going to write the whole thing at once (even though it probably seems like it after reading this profile).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Is it just me, or does this sound like the "Why should I hire you?" interview question? Who doesn't hate that question?

At any rate, I'm gonna pull a Sarah Palin and change this section to the following:

- You're 80 and you want me to fly to New York to have weird kinky sex with you.
- If you're 80, really.
- Or if you just want me to have kinky sex with you. (If you just want to pay for me to take a vacation to New York, however, this is fine.)
- You're just going to say "Hey." Wow, what scintillating conversation.
- U tYpE lK dIs.
- You beat kittens.
- You sound like Binky the Clown.
- You use sex as an icebreaker. (Attractive celebrities are exempt from this, as I'd totally brag about that.)
- You want me to obsess over Twilight, Miley Cyrus, or Kelly Clarkson like you do. I don't enjoy soulless golems.
- You smell like poo. I don't enjoy poo, either.

If none of the above describe you, then by all means, feel free to message me.

P.S.: "This is just the tip of the iceberg.."
