I wear a green hat. I'm an eagle scout. Things happen around me,
and I write them down. For better or worse, my life is an open
book. A friend of mine insists that I'm the reincarnation of Paul
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an editor and a writer.
I’m really good at
Staying up really late with a pot of coffee and a bottle of scotch
and writing and writing and writing.
I work with words for a living, and I know how to use them. I am
pretty damned good at saying exactly what I mean -- usually to the
detriment of others.
Also, I know a lot about stars. And politics. And current events.
And world history. And drinking.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm a bit of a know-it-all. And I think that's what
turns a lot of people off. But, when I'm rambling on about a book
that I read the other day, it's not because I'm showing off, it's
because I want you to know what I know. Ever since I was a little
kid, I've been running my mouth off, telling people about every
little fact that I picked up. I'm a journalist at heart, an
educator of some sort.

The six things I could never do without
4. Doctor Who
5. A good book
6. A green hat
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People. I happen to really love people quite a bit, the way they
move, the thoughts that float around in their heads. That's really
what I stick around for, what I climb out of bed for in the
morning. It's them, the silly little things roaming around the
streets, that I think about.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a bar, writing comics, having a blast.
On Sundays, I cook dinner for a bunch of my friends. I like Sunday
better than Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tie my shoes better than most people.
You should message me if
You'd like a centurion.
