I'm pretty much a more hirsute version of Larry David, which is pretty, preeetttyy, preeetttayyy worrying at times. I did have an argument it the rain with a middle aged couple in a Superquinn carpark because they were parking in a mother and child spot. So yeah, that's my life.
Also, definitely not one of those "nice guys." I really hate those pricks, they are opposite of nice. Saying you're a "nice guy" is dating equivalent of starting a sentence with "I'm not a racist, BUT..."
Also, putting this up here in the head: Don't contact me if you think it's ok to call yourself a Grammar Nazi. What the fuck is wrong with you?? There is nothing cute about how superior you feel because you know when to use whom instead of who. You're basically throwing people who speak English as a second Language under the bus. Those people almost definitely speak more languages than you so how dare you look down on them. Never mind the fact you're gleefully pissing all over people with learning difficulties who could never grasp one of the most complex languages in the world. GOOD JOB. And how dare you trivialize one of the most horrific regimes in history because you know when to use a semi colon. So instead of calling yourself a grammarn*zi, just do yourself and the world a favour and say what you truly are; A Pedantic Asshole with a Superiority Complex.
I worked on the Yes Equality Campaign, and I'm now coaching in a GAA Summer Camp. The fact that I seem to know next to nothing about GAA doesn't seem to be a hinderance at all.
I have now had a few paying comedy gigs, so I now can say I have the skills that can pay a small portion of the bills.
-Being too legit to quit.
-I also feel I have a talent of figuring out ways Carl Weathers should be cast in movies. (why couldn't he have played Jor-El in Man of Steel? Answers that don't make you sound like a racist on a postcard)
-Talking to old people. I had do some research about nursing homes, and was kindly welcomed in by a few, as long I mucked in and helped out. Man, old people are awesome, even the ones who forget to wear trousers or the borderline white supremacists. Well, the racist ones aren't that great, in fairness.
-I'm also really fucking good at being modest.

I often fall into spirals of endlessly quoting Anchorman. "Boy, that escalated quickly." I will watch any film that was directed by a woman and/ or features a Black President of the Untied States.
Shows: Parks and Recreation, OITNB (More like Piper is the New Larry, AMIRITE?), Brooklyn 99,Person of Interest, The Good Wife, Elementary, Nashville, Call The Midwife, Last Tango in Halifax, Happy Valley, The Flash and Arrow are the shows I am watching currently.
My favourite shows of all time are either a toss up between Arrested Development, Friday Night Lights, Father Ted, Cheers, Buffy,The Golden Girls, Murder She Wrote, and the West Wing. PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE.

I think I can find joy in any piece of music where it's super clear the artists doing it are loving what they are doing. That's how I got into hip hop.It was clear that Jurassic 5 and the Beasties were having an amazing time in the recording booth and that really shows.
Sketchbook and paper.
My Family, friends and my dog (Feel weird calling them things)
High fives. People might say I high five people too much to which I say, they don't high five people enough.
My catcher's mitt and a baseball.
Headphones. Even with no music, I can still ignore / avoid people on the bus.
Why don't we have more comics where Batman fights Deathstroke?
What my dog is thinking is about. And what all dogs are thinking about, really.
Oh, sorry, that's Spider-Man, not me.
I also used to be MUCH heavier and I'm trying to get down to a non life endangering weight by using the new fad diet of eating less and exercising more.
"I've ordered too much pizza and I need your help."
Also, not willing to lie about how we met. It's Twenty fucking Fifteen.
While I'm a cis man and I'm in no position to police someone's feminism, I don't want to talk to anyone whose feminism isn't intersectional. Especially when it comes to trans women. So yeah.
And shoutout to couples "looking for fun." Bisexuals are not your interchangeable sex toys. Please go away forever.
