My self-summary
ESFJ.
I'm tall, funny, ridiculous, a good friend, a bad dancer, tough, sensitive, clumsy and pretty cute. And I'm fascinated by Juggalos.
My friend Pete said I am the most consistently rad person he knows. I thinks that's pretty cool.
I don't drink, but I have no problem if you do.

The list of stuff I dig is endless. Here's the stuff I don't like, no matter what: goat cheese, reggae, fancy pocket jeans, PT Cruisers, rude people, fedoras, those creepy toe shoes, bad breath and Burning Man. Everything else I'm pretty cool with.

Mando Diao has a song called "How We Walk" that says, "You make me laugh, you make me shiver."
Yeah.
That's what I'm looking for, cause really, what's better than that?

Life is really fucking short. Go do something crazy.
You can ask me the rest. The interweb is silly.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for an ad agency, so my job looks exactly like Mad Men. Except not at all.
Trying to laugh as much as possible.
My dad died a little while ago and when he got sick it was too late to cross anything new off his "Bucket List." (I hate that phrase.) And it was okay, because he'd already done everything. He never turned down an adventure, a drink, a woman, a trip, an experience, a drug, anything. And man, did he have great stories.
So I'm going to get cracking on those things I want to make sure I do, because, well, you never know.
I’m really good at
Being a good friend. Receiving massages. Making a great cup of coffee. Parallel parking. Scrabble. Roasting a chicken. Doing what I say I'm going to do. Tomfoolery. Listening.
There are a lot of things that I don't do well, but I do them enthusiastically.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height? My killer steeze? My big blue eyes?
Personally, I'm a fan of my whole neck/shoulder/clavicle thing I've got going on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Geek Love, A Confederacy of Dunces, and Youth in Revolt. Ender's Game is one of my all time favorites, but I feel less great about that since learning that Orsen Scott Card is an outspoken gaybashing asshole. Found magazine is hilarious.
I love going to the movies. Even the bad ones, if they're at the Arclight. I love movies with quirky characters. Don't really care about explosions. I love rooting for the underdog.
The Bronx, Joe Jackson, Minor Threat, NWA, the Afghan Whigs, Billy Bragg, Warren Zevon, the Murder City Devils, the Beach Boys, Devo, Brother Ali, The Damned, Mando Diao, The Jam, The Faces, The Style Council and Paul Weller. I'm always happy to get turned on to new music. When I discover a new favorite it makes me happy like a little kid. Recently started collecting vinyl again. It's fun.
Also, podcasts.
I love the 30 for 30's. I'm almost done with them and that makes me sad.
Mr. Robot, Friday Night Lights, The League and the Wire make me happy. When Breaking Bad ended I felt a pretty big void in my life.
The six things I could never do without
Izzy and Benjamin. (The cat and the dog.)
My friends.
My God Kids, Tess and Sam.
Good coffee and spicy Ginger Beer.
Pen and paper.
Bubble Baths.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do so many of you use taco in your profile name?
We get it. Everyone loves tacos.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have, on a few occasions, eaten while in a bubble bath. This happens when I'm starving and freezing at the same time.
Don't judge. It's pretty great.
Also, I l have a Darryl Strawberry tattoo.

You're not a dick. I promise I'm not.
Or if you want to go record shopping.
No Irvine, no Crossfit.
No offense.
