My self-summary
I think it's time to take a break from this site. I haven't found what I am looking for, so methinks it's time to take a step back and make some personal changes. Maybe I will be back in a few months, maybe not. Either way, good luck everyone. I hope you find that special someone.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm turning life around. I'm getting fit, getting educated (self education at it's best), and getting over the past. I'm currently working at two casinos, making someone laugh while ensuring their child goes to Community College instead of the Ivy Leagues. Hey, it's a job.
I’m really good at
Listening, re-assuring, point/counterpoint conversations, darts, pool, trying to find the positive aspect of any situation, singing badly to 80's rock, movie trivia, scene-it, guessing presents based on wrapping, and other weird stuff.
I'm trying to be better in the kitchen, as part of my getting in shape and healthy. The results are promising (I make a pretty good Turkey Chili, if I do say so myself), and I'm looking to continue learning.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not small, I'm fluffy. It's generally a first impression turnoff, but if you stick around for a follow up impression you'd find that I may surprise you. This is changing. If you have seen me lately, there is a very obvious difference. By this summer it will be completely obvious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch
Christopher Moore (The Stupidest Angel, Lamb, pretty much any of them), Terry Pratchett, Carl Hiaasen. Any author that can make me laugh, and anything history related. Roman history, American history, anything that can hold my interest for four hundred pages or more. Just finished Free Country by George Mahood. A fun travel story traversing the U.K.
Star Wars, PotC, Old School, Man on Fire, The Professional, Centurion, any of the Aliens films, Strange Days, Serenity, Lock Out, Die Hard, Army of Darkness, any superhero movie, and just about anything starring Will Farrell.
As for TV, currently on the docket is Archer, HIMYM, Franklin & Bash, Once Upon A Time, Under the Dome, and the Newsroom.
Music for me is definitely Bad Religion. Also Lacuna Coil, Rammstein, Faith No More, Guns N Roses, Green Day, Jay Z, James Brown, Tina Turner, Ellie Goulding, 80's hair bands, punk, metal, classical, you name it. I'll give just about anything a listen to once. My ipod could belong to a person with MPD. Currently really getting back into the Cure. Must be some kind of 80's bug that's going around. It's okay though, because they rock.
Six things I could never do without
1. I-pod - It's my personal life soundtrack to keep me going through the day. Plus, it's great when the right song comes on at just the right moment. That's one way to make a memory stick.
2. My Debit card - somewhere in time I stopped carrying cash, and now the world waits to punish me for that decision with a Revolution-like global blackout.
3. 50 cent piece - for random 50/50 decisions. You'd be surprised how much easier this can make life.
4. Something to read - it used to be a book, but my Kindle Fire has rendered my library almost obsolete.
5. bottle opener - another habit picked up from being around bartenders all the time.
6. glasses - Can't see much without them, which might not be bad, but certainly isn't helpful.

Admittedly that's just stuff I carry with me on any given day. But still, in all, damn useful things to have around.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
These days I'm back to my local vs global Charity outlook. That is to say which is more important, and more importantly, which is more beneficial to all parties being helped.
And then there's zombies, robots, and why no one has ever made a perfume that smells like bacon? I mean, that's this generations Spanish Fly right there!
On a typical Friday night I am
I work at a Casino, which means Friday nights are spent either paying or taking money from our wonderful patrons, while hopefully providing them with an exceptional time and experience. Otherwise I'm training for the inevitable Zombiepocalypse. It's coming people!
Every so often I can finagle a night off to catch a movie, go back to NY to visit friends and family, or catch up on shows on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have three tattoos. All are symbols, and if you know what they are, you probably have the key to my heart.
You should message me if
you want to find Mr. Right. I can probably point you in the right direction. But seriously, if you want some good conversation, some laughs, and an overall good experience, by all means, hit me up.
The two of us
