Despite my pictures, i DO smile sometimes.
I hate people who litter. It really makes no sense to me when there
is a garbage can on every corner. Subcategory of littering that i
hate more? People who spit their gum out on the sidewalk and create
those black leopard spots all over the city.
I also don't like old-timey looking phones with push buttons wedged
into the rotary space. It's a design disaster and it needs to
I suspect that dentists chip away and do other things inside our
mouths so that we have to come back. I can't prove it, but i don't
spend too much time worrying about it. I don't mind the
I recently set my toaster on fire. I was not making toast.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Contemplating a transition to a life of leisure.
Started running seriously in the past year or so. Just crossed the
10-mile mark on my way toward 2011 marathon goal. Come train with
me! (Or at least help me find a way to get up for runs in the

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Many things. I could use someone to remind me though.
I am a bit of a tech geek. I am usually the person people call for
help fixing their computer and/or gadget.
I am WAY too informed. Half of that is related to my job and the
other half is because of my naturally curious nature (and a bit of
a Mr. Know-it-All). My friends often try to "scoop" me on news
items, about pretty much anything, but it is rare that they can. I
feel a little bad about that sometimes.*
(*some of this is altered due to circumstances. I don't actually
feel that bad though.)
I am probably good at other things, but how long should i go on and
on about that?

A lot of music. Can't hold a note, but i sure do like listening! I
still buy CDs. I need the physical media, and even though i burn
everything into my iTunes and then stream it across my wireless
network, i need to look at my CDs. I considered years ago getting
into vinyl, but i figured that would just segment my collection. I
do still have all my old cassette tapes though.
I stopped reading for a while because i moved into the city and
don't really commute on the train as much (i walk to work.) Plus, i
read the newspaper for a living. But, since getting a kindle as a
gift, i am reading again. Usually while doing laundry. I like
forced relaxation in New York. I kinda miss the train.
I like movies, but i don't get the whole 3D craze. I hope it goes
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I am working on new priorities. *
*That said, i recently put a bunch of my stuff in storage (long
story) and it is amazing how much of your stuff you never think
about, let alone need, when it is locked away.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
