I earned a degree from the U of M (Morris) and now work at a logistics company.
I do, however, work in Eden Prairie. I work in logistics, managing freight that is damaged in transit along with recalls (mostly food industry stuff). The freight industry is glamorous. Someday I'm likely to marry Beyonce.
If you didn't know me and took a cursory glance through photos of me, the number of pictures with me making a face would likely strike you as odd.
I would list off my 'recently watched' and 'suggested' titles from Netflix to provide some insight into my TV habits, but as it is a shared account with my gay roommate, horror loving roommate, and another guy who watches just the worst things I don't think it would be much help. Rather, a simple list will do.
Arrested Development, Parks and Rec, New Girl, Galactica, Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, Ugly Americans, Scrubs, The League, Game of Thrones, Lilyhammer, etc. Also, most documentaries.
Music: Basically anything but country (it can be a little country), death metal, near-death metal, or some other stuff. I sprang for Spotify Premium recently, and a quick summary of artists I DO enjoy are: Chvrches, Iggy Azalea, Angel Haze, Cage the Elephant, White Stripes, Bon Iver, Daft Punk, Jeremy Messersmith, Passion Pit, Jay Z, Beyonce, Lauryn Hill, James Blake, Disclosure, Jake Bugg, Frank Ocean, Har Mar Superstar, Tickle Torture, Lorde, Rufus Wainwright, Charlie XCX, Haim, Dessa, Atmosphere, Brother Ali, and many many more. Some concerts I've been to recently are Edward Sharpe, Laura Marling, Jeremy Messersmith, Chvrches, another Messersmith concert, Dessa, Local Natives, and whatever I find randomly at bars. I'm really looking forward to the summer music festivals (Loring Park, Greenway, Walker, etc).
Lasagna. Anything with Tikka Masala sauce. Gyros. I am not exceedingly adventurous when it comes to food, but I enjoy different cuisines - Thai, Mexican, Italian, German, and some sushi.
3. Temperatures above 45 degrees
6. and last but not least, my sweet sweet crystal meth (addendum: Not sure if this is accurately coming off as a joke, so to be clear - this is a joke. To make up for it, here is a freebie..)
7. Vacation days.
Outside of those thoughts, though, I am trying to plan what I'll be doing on the weekend and if I'm feeling up for it, what I should do that evening. Typically this means combing through the City Pages or Vita.mn and making mental notes. Occasionally I actually remember them, too.
Oh, I also marvel at the poor parking skills of my neighbors. Cause i'm a grumpy old man.
While Hennepin is great, I am more often just on Nicollet, either up at Brits, the Local, Barrio, or down by Ryan's Pub where I am likely considered a regular by now. And, if I am in the mood for something even more relaxed I will head over to the Nicollet cafe on Franklin and just listen to music. Their recent decision to serve wine is simultaneously the best change and the worst: not great for the wallet.
That said - beyond going on dates I am also interested in just meeting up in a completely platonic capacity to hang out, especially if you are within walking distance of Loring Park.
