My self-summary
Recently moved to the Charlotte area, not because I was kidnapped by pirates who were also with overland vehicle capabilities, but for work. Shocking, I know. Also un-shocking: Swashbuckling is not as much fun as the movies make it out to be.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting outside while the getting's good. Running and hiking.

Re-habbing a knee that has apparently suffered some damage from running. But not from running away, except for that whole pirate thing I noted above.

Reading. Writing. A little 'rithmetic (at work). Going to be exploring Charlotte and soak up what I can.
I’m really good at
Making sure there's no more ice cream left in the Ben and Jerry's pint.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can make most people laugh. Sometimes it's as easy as taking the bag off my head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Dog Stars - Peter Heller (just finished this one, it's a rough ride but well worth it)
Infinite Jest - David Foster Wallace
Brief Interviews With Hideous Men - David Foster Wallace
The Baroque Cycle - Neal Stephenson
Cryptonomicon - Neal Stephenson
Snow Crash - Neal Stephenson
50 Shades (because I wanted to be able to speak to it by having read it, rather than offering up a limp uninformed opinion. I think I'm still suck on page 50 or so - just didn't pull me in).

Music:
Queens of the Stone Age
Kat Wright and the Indominatable Soul Band

The six things I could never do without
The morning cuppa joe

Sunshine - it makes me happy.

My two cats, the lovable geeks.

Diet Dr Pepper. And lots of it.

Running shoes. And running.

Under Armour. (Well known as a preventative for FMLC - Fat Man Leg Chafe)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The house I might live in, at some point in the future - where it will be, why a circular staircase that runs from the loft bedroom right down to the kitchen is a fantastic idea, and what the view out the panoramic kitchen windows will look like. I'm also wondering who's going to chop all the wood for the fireplace. I hope to find someone who is handy with an ax and a log splitter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Off for a run outside
Cooking dinner
Catching a flick
Reading a book
Starting a Fight Club
Fighting a Start Club
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Americone Dream is the crystal meth equivalent for ice cream addicts.
