What I’m doing with my life
When I am not at work, I spend my time trying to do whatever I think will make me happy. I realize that is a very vague and generic answer, but it feels like the best way to put it. Some examples of things that make me happy are playing board games, watching sports (especially hockey), hanging out with friends, and drinking craft beer.

I am also trying to devote time to catching up on all of the movies that I have never watched that I, apparently, should have seen by now. I actually keep a running list on my phone of the movies that, when people find out I haven't seen them, elicit the reaction of "How have you never seen this, have you been living under a rock for your whole life?" The list is currently 137 movies strong and holds such classics as Jaws, all of the Indiana Jones's, literally every movie featuring Arnold Schwarzenneger, The Iron Giant, and The jungle Book.
I’m really good at
making dad jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
How expressive I am when I talk. I regularly have people telling me to calm down even though I am not actually worked up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies:
I Love You Man, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Social Network, (500) Days of Summer, Speed Racer, and pretty much anything made by Pixar.

Shows:
How I Met Your Mother, The Office, Parks & Recreation, Better Off Ted, Doctor Who, Arrow, The Flash, Agents of Shield, The League, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, The Newsroom, and Firefly.

Music:
Ben Folds (my username comes from one of his songs), Jason Mraz, Randy Rogers Band, Foo Fighters, Otis Redding, and Gary Clark Jr.

Food:
My favorites are sushi, Chinese, or anything Italian. However, I am a recovering picky eater so that may change as I try more things. I recently found out that I really like most anything containing hatch chilis!
The six things I could never do without
Friends
Beer
My Computer
Netflix
My Car
My Board Games
I spend a lot of time thinking about
words that sound like they should have a different meaning than they do, like how clavicle sounds more like an adjective than a noun.
On a typical Friday night I am
If it is a special occasion then my friends will usually find a way to trick me in to going downtown, otherwise I would rather we find somewhere low key to have some beers and take it easy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I loved the movie Speed Racer. It's not really a guilty pleasure since I find no guilt in it, but that still seems like the best answer I am going to come up with right now.
You should message me if
-you have a movie that I should add to my movie list
-you find a spelling or grammatical mistake on my profile. I am not trying to say that there aren't any, but if there are then that seems like an easy ice breaker.
-you actually read this far down on the page. I mean, you have already invested so much time in to reading about me that you might as well, otherwise that is just time you're not getting back.
