My self-summary
I don't know exactly why I chose Royal, Electric, and Azure as adjectives, but blue is my favorite color. Maybe it's because it's one of the few colors I can see most variations of. I know this bold statement is very controversial, but I believe in taking a stand on important issues like this.

On this site, it would be great to meet other semi-like-minded, exceptionally kick-ass people.

FACT: I have an overkill 11 years of college culminating in 3 degrees in Social Science Education (with Psychology and Music minors), a B.S. in Zoology, and a J.D. in Law. So I know about a lot of things, but not nearly as much as I should.

FACT: Despite all that education, I am probably more of an idiot than you are.

FACT: To make matters worse, sometimes I even LOOK like an idiot because I'm terrible at matching colors due to red-green color deficiency, and ambidextrous traits further confusing my brain hemispheres.

FACTS: To further complicate things, I'm adopted. But now that I've met my birth family, I have discovered that a lot of my idiosyncracies make genetic sense, for better or for worse.

FACT: For the last 8 years, I've been working in a family business, among other things, but am now taking licensing exams to switch into a financial services career. Go figure.
What I’m doing with my life
Hangin' with friends/enemies, searching for useless knowledge, watching movies, going to occasional music shows or shows and events that friends put on... standard stuff, really.

Once in a while, I play tennis, ski, or air hockey.

Otherwise, I enjoy indulging the occasional absurdity, real or imagined. Like getting drunk at work. I don't really do that, but I might just pretend that I do, just for fun.
I’m really good at
Writing blue words. And bullshitting -- in the take-a-position-to-explore-it kind of way. I don't really lie unless I have a really good reason.


I am, and probably always will, try to unravel the conceptual strings of the human condition and restitch them into a designer garment. Wish me luck.
The first things people usually notice about me
Let me take a quick survey of "people" and get back to you...

Ok, done -- here's a list... welcoming, warm, smart, talk a lot, ask too many questions, opinionated, serious, funny (sometimes), care about people, considerate, and a good host.

Some people say I look pretty young for my age, but the bits of gray in my hair give me away.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Yes. My favorites are books, movies, music, and food, in reverse order.

Food -- Foods from all over the world, food or restaurants I have not tried before. I also cook quite a lot on my own, sometimes experimenting with new recipes. I'm a pretty good cook, but don't always hit it out of the park. My birth mom sent me a very creative and clever collection of recipes from my birth family, so I have been busy trying to knock those 100 out. Sheesh!

Music -- I love music in general -- too much to specify anything here, really, and across genres. As long as it does something for me, I enjoy it. I AM picky, but I can still appreciate music others like and I don't. Music truly is a universal language, after all.

Movies -- I LOVE movies. Netflix is my friend. Some of my favorite movies are ones I can see many times and still get something new out of it: "Dr. Strangelove...", "Memento", "Spinal Tap", "Eyes Wide Shut", "Spun", "Junebug".

Books -- I have favorites, but these days I eat up a lot of time in practical reading, and searching for pop psychology articles on MSN, the news, or taking silly tests on this site. But since I read "useful" information all day long, it's nice to focus on a different medium when I get home, like movies.

And yes, sadly, I am one of the millions who will fail to publish a classic book (posthumously) that would be required reading in every English Lit. course. However, that book will not be discovered for some eons from now, when cockroaches survive the human race, and evolve language skill sufficient to study this prehistoric marvel of a previously lost, quasi-intelligent society. But my book will be discovered only after they eat my remains, and/or use it for fuel. Ahhhh, one can only dream.
Six things I could never do without
A job is sure nice. And Charmin Ultra Double-Quilted Toilet Paper. Beyond that, except for friends and family, there isn't much I can't do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. Really, there is very little I'm not curious or thinking about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting crunk. Ok, ok, I'm trying to impress you. I only get crunk half of the Fridays.

And I know it's cliche, but yes, sometimes I meet up with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I get to know and like you, I'll talk with you about most anything, changing names to protect the innocent. But be forewarned, there's a lot to tell, so have a seat. This might take a while.

Then again, why don't you go first?
You should message me if
You have an appreciation for Charmin Ultra Double-Quilted toilet paper. Don't be shy, I'm a really good, patient listener when it comes to that. But make it snappy -- I have to get back to taking silly tests on this site.
