Nonetheless, I also enjoy hiking, video games, parentheses, and long walks on the beach, especially drunk and at night when there's a better chance of seeing mermaids (it turns out he was just a homeless guy with an incredible singing voice, but we shared a beer with him and he was actually a really cool dude, even though he wasn't part fish).
I'm frequently exaggerating, infrequently serious, and always a fan of punctuation. (Because interrobangs are the shit‽)
My high school English teacher once told me I had an old soul, which is probably the best compliment I have ever received.
I'm also trying to grow peppers, but whatever the opposite of a green thumb is, I have two of them. (What do they want from me, blood‽ Although I haven't tried that yet...)

Things I'm bad at:
-banjo, but I'm working on it
Books: Catch 22, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, ASoIaF, anything by Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Kurt Vonnegut, Bill Bryson, or the science fiction greats: Bradbury, Asimov, Heinlein, etc.
Movies: The Iron Giant, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, For a Few Dollars More (the whole trilogy), Unforgiven, Brazil, Death at a Funeral (the English one), Boogie Nights, Pulp Fiction, the Kill Bills, Looper, Back to the Future (I'm a sucker for time travel movies), Garden State, Walk Hard, The Gods Must Be Crazy, Blazing Saddles, and everything done by the Coen Brothers (especially The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Art Thou, and No Country for Old Men), or Wes Anderson (especially The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic).
Shows: Community, Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Arrested Development, Firefly, The Venture Bros., 30 Rock, Flight of the Conchords.
Music: Basically a lot of classic rock, a fair bit of folk rock, some indie rock, and a heaping portion of classical (Mendelssohn is my jam, but nothing beats Beethoven). But my music changes frequently.
Food: I love all of it. Except I don't like scrambled eggs. I make it a point to try scrambled eggs once a year or so, to make sure I still don't like them, but I haven't come around on it yet. Maybe next year.
2. Science. Yeah, Science!
3. Music, both listening and playing
4. A headlamp
5. Food, because then I'd be dead. Also, food is delicious.
6. Trees, because whenever I stay inside too long I get antsy.
2. Staying home by myself to watch a movie/chill out and play video games
3. Something else entirely
And not just the guy parts.
I also just realized I used the phrase "guy parts" in the previous section, and it's making me laugh more than it should.
