Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I read good books, play good games, listen to good music, and hang
out with good people. I don't really dig the whole corporate, fake
business-y thing. I whistle - and sing - a lot. In, like, an
annoying falsetto. Some people dig this, and some find it wicked
annoying. I think it's really important to be as real as possible
as often as possible - if you're trying to fool other people,
you're trying to fool yourself, and I appreciate it when people
call me out when i'm being a hypocrite. Ironically, I pretend to be
excessively friendly and subservient all fucking day at work.
I swear. A lot.
I really wish I could still put that I drive an '89 Caddy. Old girl
rusted through (thanks, Michigan roads!) and I'm stuck with a big
ol' GMC van at the moment. I make it cool, though. Mostly by
pumping the oldies station really loud to scare off
Also I have a cat, a badass bug-hunting, stuff-climbing, spider-man
kitty cat. I really love her. I'm afraid it's not, however,
Also! Important side note: "Your Mom" and "That's what she said!"
jokes are the absolute peak of humorous discourse, and I will brook
no argument to the contrary. ^_^
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I wait tables for a living. It pays the bills, and keeps me on my
In the meantime, I take my obligations to my friends very
seriously, and I try not to take my work very seriously at all.
They say waiting tables is one of the most stressful jobs out
there, so I try to stay relaxed.
Finally breaking into my chosen career with an apprenticeship in
radio. Can't wait to get on the air and spit some truth.
I also have a not-so-secret dream to be a stand up comic. =D in
reality, that means I watch a lot of stand up comedy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Video games. haha ^_^ that doesn't do it justice - I'm of the mind
that good games are art, and art needs to be appreciated. I can
also hold my own in any discussion on religion, politics,
philosophy, but I try not to start those discussions - puts people
off, you see. I can write fairly well, and I give fantastic advice
(almost all of the time).
Oh and I speak German very well, having spent a year studying it
in, you know, Germany. Miss that place somethin' fierce, I'll tell
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A relaxed, friendly vibe. I try to give it off - sort of exude an
aura of relaxed, you know? Relentless goddamn optimism, to the
point that people get sick of it.
Also, socks and sandals. I catch a lot of hell for that, especially
during the summer, but dude. Try it. Super comfy.
(also khaki shorts, sometimes during the winter. just for a
I'll call you "dude", or "man" or "bro", even if you're a complete
stranger, or a girl.

Man, fuckin' all of it. I could probably stand to lose a couple of
pounds off the midsection, but damn. There's so much excellent
food, if you know where to look. Like Bubba's burgers, JP's Diner,
J&S Hamburg, Stella's, man. everything.
I need to finish this one later, after I take a careful reckoning
of all my favorite culture stuff and pare it down to a condensed
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Those Pop-Ice popsicle things.
2. Good music. I never have to do without it, though, the music in
my head is usually better than the stuff I hear day-to-day
3. Parmesan cheese.
4. The Joe Rogan Experience.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. If not, I'm up for whatever - a weekend off is a
delightful rarity, but I usually plan on working the weekend, so
when I get, like, sunday off, I didn't make any plans, so I usually
waste it on the intarwebz.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first song I memorized entirely was Hotel California, followed
closely by a few Beatles songs. If you can't stand that guy who
knows the lyrics to every song, out loud, we're gonna have a bad
time. That includes show tunes and dubstep. Yeah.
Also, I smoke - pipe tobacco, cigarettes, that sort of thing. I'm
not a dick about it, and I'm not a chain-smoker or anything. It's
more of a hobby. Also, it prevents me from killing my customers.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're relaxed about stuff, open-minded and willing to discuss and
debate for fun! I think our differences make us real people.
You know why those bastards canceled Firefly, 'cause I sure as hell
haven't figured it out.
You ever listened to American Pie and accidentally let slip a tear,
or know every single word by heart.
You can deal with "OH MY GOD THAT'S MY FAVORITE _______ EVER" on a
daily basis. Books, videos, music. They're all my favorite,
depending on the day. I guess a lot of people find that annoying.
