My self-summary
I would like to know why almost all my favorite foods are
somehow bad for me. It's ridiculous. For example, I love fruit juice,
but since sugar is apparently evil, I started drinking low-sugar
apple juice. But then I learned that apple juice has POISON in it
(arsenic). I also love salmon, which is healthy, but then I found
out that the healthiest part of it is the thin gray layer on the
edge--and that's the part that gets cut off of sushi. Which is how I
get salmon. But worst of all, my beloved cheese, favorite of ALL
foods, is apparently designed to give me a heart attack. Pretty
soon I'm going to be reduced to baked chicken, steamed broccoli,
and wild rice.
Of course, I refuse to give up Skyline!
What I’m doing with my life
Great question, okcupid! I feel like I've done quite a bit already -- travel, work, education, had some good times, had some great times. My job is no kidding interesting but I'm looking to round myself out with a partner in crime and something steady.
I’m really good at
I can hold my breath for 1 minute, 37 seconds. After thinking:
"weirdo", at least try it yourself.
I'm willing to bet you a drink that you're not going to top that. And
yes, I'll be stunned (and impressed) if I lose this bet.
The first things people usually notice about me
This is a silly question...
However, I'll use this space to note how amusing this website is,
in that when you see a profile, on the lower right corner it hasother people, and it will give you a little distinction line...some of them are pretty funny: "less desiring of sex", "less selfish", and
something to the effect of "less unrealistic self-opinion".
First, do you girls realize you're being outed like this??
Second...crap...I have to wonder what it's saying about me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books are usually the ones that can make me laugh
(such as: A Walk in the Woods, Confederacy of Dunces, or Me Talk
Pretty One Day) or those which are pulpy and hard to put down
(Dan Brown, Michael Crichton stuff).
Obviously my favorite foods are all the stuff I'm not supposed to
eat. With the exception of avocados, tomatoes, blueberries, and
green tea. PLEASE DO NOT tell me that the Food Gods have
spoken and now these few foods, what precious little I have left,
are now deemed to cause cancer, male-pattern baldness, and
erectile disfunction.
My favorite movie is too embarrassing to mention here, but for
shows I like The Walking Dead, the Daily Show, and the Colbert
Report. I'll admit to watching Top Chef and the Good Wife too.
Yes, neither is very macho, but who cares? They're good!
Six things I could never do without
Coffee (steaming hot, first thing in the AM).
A dog to pet at least one time in the week.
The gym (sweating it out is good therapy).
My weekends.
Mad Men on AMC.
See 1 to 5 above.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just about everything crosses my mind each day. I think that's the definition of well-rounded.
On a typical Friday night I am
Winning a pumpkin carving contest, flying to London, playing
Modern Warfare while taking pita chips and guacamole breaks,
waiting 1.5 HOURS for a table at Tokyo Underground (longest wait
in my life for a table...ridiculous...), having a cold beer, watching 3
movies, researching krav maga v. boxing as far as which has the
best fitness-to-self-defense ratio, making my comfort food special
chicken-noodle soup, dancing like an idiot but thinking I look
pretty cool, probably some other stuff too, but I think as a
sampling, that covers October and November 2011.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have no idea if this really "private" but it's worth mentioning that
while I definitely like dogs, I'm kind of allergic to their fur when it's
flying all over the air. I grew up with a dog, so I appreciate how
awesome they can be, but between the two of us (you, reading
this, and me, writing it) you will have to be the one that takes
care of your dog, since I need to be able to breathe, you know, on
the regular.
You should message me if
One of us owes the other one a drink (see things I'm really good
The two of us
