My name is Andy, but people call me Andy ;)
I'm a fairly laid back kind of guy about most things. Especially those that don't really matter. If they matter to you, than you can decide. But for the topics that do matter, that are important to me, these are what I would stand and fight for.
I value honesty, intelligence, loyalty (to a degree), and self-confidence without arrogance.
I do try to deal with things in a calm manner and finding humor in a situation always helps me deal with it. I love people who have the one or two word sarcastic come backs, they always make me laugh.
I love people who can make me laugh and know how to cook (lucked out as most of my friends are very good cooks). If you can't do the latter, let me know I'll teach you because people tell me all the time that I'm really good at it (and I have to agree with them).
I really like rugby, baseball, Aussie Rules Football, and I love soccer. I can ski and snowboard, and I'm not sure which one I like better :) have to love fresh powder. Back packing, hiking, camping, fishing (been deep sea fishing once, that's a story in and of itself)...

Bring on the suggestions-
... who decided little dogs that never shut up and look kind of like a rat, are not just a rat with a furry tail (sorry if you have one but I can't stand dogs that never shut up)
... and one thing I will admit to, I think I actually cried when the Red Sox won the 2004 American League Series. It still chokes me up :)
Also... if you have any good stories to tell, can make me laugh, and have a good head on your shoulders, I'd love to hear from you.
