My self-summary
I'm a reasonably charming fairly average looking guy who talks too much and is very fond of his dog. I'm boringly dependable, and derive a great deal of joy from my bills being paid. I do it early sometimes, you know, for piquancy. I just moved to Chattanooga about a week ago, and I'm enjoying it so far. Somebody needs to explain to me about this whole water falling from the sky thing you guys have going on out here. It's crazy.
What I’m doing with my life
I was driving trucks in Arizona until this summer, now I do lots of emailing while talking on the phone. Hopefully in a few months I'll be looking for a house, in the meantime I spend a lot of time playing with my dog.
I’m really good at
Walking long distances while carrying heavy things, fixing stuff, tripping over things, fixing the thing I tripped over, etc. I'm also a decent cook and give a pretty passable foot rub. I'm a bit of a deadeye with a Nerf gun, and I'm a wiz at official paperwork. Turns out I'm also good at safely driving things for long periods of time.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile usually. Lately it's been my dog. But to be honest, she is much cuter than me and I have been taking her pretty much everywhere.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Pretty eclectic mostly, my radio is set to 97.3 and I haven't found a reason to change it yet. I like action movies, and heady foreign films except the french ones where it's just 2 old people slowly dying in a rent controlled flat in the 19th arrondisement, bollywood movies and romcoms and stuff. Documentaries are pretty cool, I'll watch plants bloom in time lapse all day. I donated most of my book collection before I moved, the stuff I have left goes between 1930's plumbing and machining handbooks to schlocky scifi to HP lovecraft. I also have a bunch of audiobooks. Perks of being a former truck driver.
The six things I could never do without
I have recently rediscovered the ease with which one can adapt to completely different circumstances. So instead of 6 items or ideas that I'm very fond of, i'll just go super practical.
*a sturdy pair of hiking boots. My feet are tender, despite being hobbit-like. So this is obvious.
*one of those rubber ball/paddle combinations with the rubber band. It's important to keep your mind supple, and thinking of ways to continually repair the broken rubber band is sure to provide hours of entertainment.
*a device to filter water. I'm pretty openminded, but I don't want to go straight bear grylls. Pee is unsanitary. It doesn't appeal to me.
*a good knife. Mostly for whittling things. Potentially for buttering toast in a very dangerous manner.
*a loincloth. Satin and interestingly embroidered. Preferably with dragons, possibly flames. Maybe throw some sequins on it.
*a nice thick towel. Like the ones your mom keeps for guests. No galactic hitchhiker should ever be without their towel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
House prices and freight lanes. Also college football. Really hoping Heupel can get the Tigers offense moving along this season.
On a typical Friday night I am
Until recently, I'd bet dollars to donuts I'd be somewhere between Phoenix and Safford, AZ until about 3am saturday. This last friday I was at Ruby Falls, then ate at Sugars Ribs. It was awesome.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My dog and I watched Melissa and Joey in its entirety over a long weekend. If you don't love Melissa Joan Hart, I don't think we'll be friends.
You should message me if
You don't mind me taking a bunch of wrong turns on the way to the cool Chattanooga thing you want to show me. Or if you're really interested in attack/observation helicopters in world military service from about 1968-now and want to know my feelings about them and how hard they are to stage for air movement.
