My self-summary
Random factoids for your perusal:
1) I have a bizarre obsession with both the Kennedy family and Superman. Weird, I know
2) I have changed one of my own tires no less than 5 times. Also, Houston has a lot of potholes.
3) I consider myself quite witty, while my mother classifies it as being a smart-ass. I can't imagine why.
4) I am no longer allowed to go into kitchen gadget stores without adult supervision. I am an excellent cook, though.
5) My entire apartment has no color except for a set of red bowls. It DOES have a lot of grey, black, and metal.
6) I am a buyer for a women's clothing store. My job could very easily exist as a Bravo reality series.
7) I actually dislocated my shoulder tripping over a gas pump hose. Seriously.
8) My dream job? A political speech writer. Except that I mostly like politics in theory and less in practice.
9) I drive a manual transmission. It's just more fun to drive. (I actually just got a new car, and it's automatic. Sad face.)
10) I am one of maybe 12 people in the world that thinks Apple products are completely overrated. Give me my Android any day.
What I’m doing with my life
After spending 15 years in retail running a women's clothing store, I just started a new job as a senior marketing coordinator.
I’m really good at
...cooking, organizing events or outings, interior design, writing, business, working a social situation, pulling together wardrobes.
The first things people usually notice about me
...height, personality, wit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by David Sedaris, A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Giver, Watchmen
Movies: Fight Club, Out of Africa, Boondock Saints, Gladiator, When Harry Met Sally
Music: Third Eye Blind, The Killers, Fitz & the Tantrums, The Black Keys
Food: whatever restaurant is new!
The six things I could never do without
1-Bon Appetit subscription: I have a ritual when it arrives at the beginning of every month - pour a glass of wine and read it cover to cover, marking it with little post it flags for recipes I want to try
2-Mascara: love it, won't leave the house without it
3-Kindle: keeps an entire library at my fingertips
4-Laughter: anything that's quick and witty I find hysterical - I've been told that I sound like Cameron Diaz when I laugh
5-Visual inspiration: a striking photograph, clean lines of a flower, a soft and flowy shirt - really anything that is interesting to look at
6-Friends: they are my family and we share our lives
On a typical Friday night I am
...having dinner and drinks with friends.
You should message me if
You're an intelligent, career-driven man who enjoys new restaurants, craft beers, and conversation.

You can equally appreciate a fine meal and a cheesy movie. You are confident, but don't mind making a fool of yourself for a laugh. You're slow to anger, but quick to stand up for something you believe in. You know what you want, and aren't afraid to go for it.
