My self-summary
Affable. Amusing. Assertive. Brash. Confident. These are the ABC's of me. (There are three A's because I am triple-A quality.)

I wrote that with probably the biggest shit-eating grin that has ever existed and I feel neither shame nor remorse.

I like to get loud and am by nature a boisterous person. To me, life is all about laughing and being ridiculous. I abhor blandness in people. I like to call this trait ostentenacity, which sounds better than it looks typed. And is also a lie, I've never said that before now. But I do like it.

I'm not from Texas, but I've lived here for half my life. Unfortunately much of that time was in small towns, but now that I'm in a city I plan to never, ever live outside an urban area.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently trying to improve myself in ways I had ignored before. I'm learning to cook and am exercising after being involved in the Great Weight Debacle of 2011. I'm also working to improve my style, because one day a man wakes up and realizes that a limit must be placed on how often a Hawaiian shirt is worn.

That limit is once, maybe twice a week.

I'm learning how to sew. Like, with a machine and everything. I want to make my own clothes. And possibly someone else's, eventually.
I’m really good at
I have often been told that I am very funny. Hilarious, even. If you want to laugh, I am your man.
I can eat as many tacos as any man can eat (2-3).
I have a great sense of space and am able to create aesthetically pleasing arrangements of furniture when a bed is not involved. Beds take up too much space, I don't know what to do with them. Besides the obvious.
I am proudly able to drink as much whiskey as any ten men can drink. Provided they are small men. If they are normal sized men, then five of them.
I do a really good karaoke of Peggy Lee's Fever. My Cracklin Rosie, however, will knock your socks off.
If called upon I can prove myself not an unworthy participant on the dance floor.
The first things people usually notice about me
You may be surprised to know this, but I am often mistaken for an ambulatory haircut. Some of my closest friends still believe I am an Afro that swears and drinks their liquor.

I'm clever. I say this without presumption, as I'm not the smartest or most learned person in the room unless it's just me and my cat, but I have a quick mind that makes connections easily, so I can at least be witty.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read! Mostly sci-fi and fantasy, but I have a decent collection of noir novels so that I can walk down more aisles at Half-Price looking for more. Terry Pratchett is probably my favorite author, and I have reread Discworld novels so much that I once surprised my friends on the depth of my knowledge.

I read comics as well because I am an adult geek and I can spend my money however I like. I did not, however, read them when I was a kid geek. Mainly because I did not have money to spend however I liked. But now I can read about Batman and Atomic Robo while I drink some Kool-Aid. Please note, I will not actually drink Kool-Aid. It tastes terrible.

I don't watch a lot of ongoing tv, as I cancelled my cable, but I do own a number of box sets, mostly cartoons and sci-fi. I do, however, have friends that pay for tv and I go to their place to stay current on series they are watching, like Dr. Who and Adventure Time. Farscape is probably my favorite series to rewatch that I own.

I love watching Kung-Fu, Blaxploitation and B movies with other people. I am always willing to sit down and watch a spectacle that isn't a horror film. I think that everyone in those acts stupid as hell and it irritates me because I would have just set the entirety of East Texas on fire before getting chainsawed by an inbred redneck. It's East Texas, who's gonna miss it anyway?

Other than that, I pretty much watch anything else, as it seems I have a weakness for moving pictures to the point where I can't sleep if a tv is on.

I feel that Speed Racer is the number one Feel Good movie of all time. Understandably, you may not feel the same way. We don't have to talk about it if that's the case. If it's not, let's fuckin' watch Speed Racer.

My taste in music is fairly varied and Pandora keeps making it worse. New Wave, irish folk, afro-rock, mariachi, lounge, hiphop, zydeco. I could keep going but you get the idea. Out of everything, my favorite band is Clutch. I might like your dad's southern rock band.

All of my favorite food can be eaten out of a hand and bought off a truck. Gyros, pizza, tacos, hotdogs. And technically ramen but that is due to a very specific truck that no longer runs and tricked me into thinking it was but instead was serving burgers.
Six things I could never do without
I have a collection of Hawaiian shirts because they are what I exclusively wore for about fifteen years. I keep them for mostly nostalgic reasons now, but even though I don't wear them much anymore I am not ready to open a closet that isn't filled with flowers.
I don't think a day goes by where I don't have at least a glass of milk. It is delicious and refreshing.
I will always need something to read.
I need a drink. A blended whiskey with ginger beer is preferred but whatever you have is fine.
I enjoy pornographic material.
I require at least one article of clothing that is purple. My favorite currently are pants.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I need to get from the grocery store. And shoes. And how infrastructure in this country is so far behind what is required to properly support the populace in most of our major cities. Why Nightwing should be Asian. If my jokes and/or stories work for standup.
On a typical Friday night I am
Exhausted from work, so something low key. Also I am the kind of guy that still likes to go to certain movies on opening night. But Saturday night, that's when the party is! Karaoke, drinking at a friend's, the occasional club or bar. I like doing things around people and I enjoy making new friends! I started going to roller derby with my friends and I think it's the best.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I fucking love Supertramp.
You should message me if
You have a perverse sense of humor. Please, sit with me in the corner of a restaurant and make wry comments about strangers.
People call you weird.
You call yourself weird.
You wanna watch some cartoons.
You want to go to a con dressed as a lazy superhero.
You are looking for an object containing the properties of Bombasticity. I have that object.
I'm a sucker for a woman in a Starfleet uniform.
The two of us
