I suppose I could go all cliche and say "Oh, man, I'm terrible talking about myself" and write 6 paragraphs about myself but...well, they're called cliches for a reason ;)
Seriously, though, I'm just a simply complex guy looking for a PiC. Someone to be with and do everything we can together. More on that in a bit.
My biggest passions in life would definitely be stories and sports. Nothing can get my attention easier than a story. I'm a sucker for them. Could be in any medium. I have a library of books (of various genres). I stopped counting when I hit 1,000. Currently in the slow process of getting some real bookcases for them and getting them organized a bit (it's hard to read the Alex Cross series when they aren't lumped together :/ ). I also have a small (er) library of movies. Mostly DVDs cause I'm a cheap bastard and all...though my BluRay collection is slowly growing (Not that I'm replacing my DVDs...just supplementing them). And yes, I even have a tidy collection of video games from all sorts of consoles. Nothing to brag about but they're all fun and/or memorable in their own way.
As for sports, I'm a very active soccer lover. I've been hooked ever since the Dynamo played their first game in April of 2006 and have gotten more and more involved ever since. They are my first (soccer) love. I also follow the Dash, the US National team (men and women and youth) and Pachuca from Mexico (respect). For example: this past month I was pretty much MIA as I watched every single World Cup match (85% live), mostly at all sorts of bars and restaraunts around town. Including the insanity of Lucky's Pub downtown for the US matches. Good (expensive) times.
Besides soccer, my first true love was baseball, especially the Astros. My grandfather took me to so many games over the years in the Dome. Great memories. Great times. Even when they've been losing (a lot...a whole hell of a lot) the past....too many.....years. When the Aeros were around I was a STH for them and loved it. (Damn you Les!) Rockets and Texans games I usually catch on TV but if I can swing it I'll attend a couple games.
Another hobby would be astrophysics/biology and astronomy. Or science in general really but mostly those. I'm more interested in reading up on it but not so much the math. I know just enough math to be able to get the gist of what scientists put out there but not enough to understand without the text.
And I'm also a sports writer! I cover the Houston Dynamo for Fansided.com.
Looking for someone to enjoy all this fun with.
People have said I have a talent for prose. Perhaps. I do scribble a few lines from time to time. Nothing earth shattering but fun for me.
Giving advice. I've had lots of people ask my advice, especially on relationships. Seems to help them out as everyone has always ended up happier afterwords. :)
(which is funny 'cause it's been a while since I've been in one)
I'm a big guy...6'3". Probably after that? Either that I'm always in sandals outside of work (always) or my eyes...and that they change color! Awesome :D
Movies: My movie collection isn't as extensive as the books, but I do have a fair amount. Not nearly as diverse. A lot of guy flicks, but I do have plenty of horror, drama, foreign films (Spanish, French and British) and yes a few romances. What can I say? I'm a hopeless romantic at heart.
Food: Tex-Mex (the real stuff), Mexican, Italian, Chinese.
Show: Simpsons, Mythbusters, PawnStars, Law n Order (SVU, etc), History/H2 channels, Hell on Wheels, Walking Dead, Anything interesting on Discovery, Big Bag Theory, Community, and on and on.
Oh, and if you tell me you haven't seen Sherlock, I'll probably sit you down and we'll watch all 3 seasons of Sherlock ASAP. I'll make sure we have plenty of tissue.
I'm an 80s/90s kid and my music selection reflects this.
My best friends
My truck (RIP)...now I have a car :/ Not as awesome....
More and more my phone these days...who knew smart phones were so useful?
How to survive the coming Zombie Apocalypse.
If you're the type who thinks Andy Serkis should get an Oscar nod for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (what a mouthful). Or someone who loves movies in general and loves to talk about them. If you think Michael Bay is an idiot and hate him for what he's done to our childhood joys of Transformers and Ninja Turtles (why dude, why!?!?!)
If you're looking for someone to enjoy any of these things with, hit me up. I'm making a commitment to checking regularly and often. Let's do this!
