My self-summary
I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking for here, but it probably involves margaritas and sunscreen at some point.
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved back to Texas from New Orleans to help a friend with a Telecommunications startup. I enjoy exploring my new surroundings and am currently on the hunt for local people to hang out with.
I’m really good at
Um... not writing about myself. Seriously, this is kinda weird. I mean bordering on hubris.

That's it! I am really good at avoiding hubris.

And bees.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, but not freakish, "How's the weather up there?" tall. (It's a bit warmer.)
I'm reasonably well-spoken.
I am not hideously malformed.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Robert Rankin, William Gibson, Isaac Asimov, Kurt Vonnegut, Tom Robbins, or Terry Pratchett.
Being Digital
The Singularity is Near
Cheesy and/or amazing science fiction
Books of interesting photography
The Onion's "Our Dumb World" and the Daily Show's "America" are both hilarious.
I'm one of those people who will only read a manual as a very last resort. It means that the machine won.

Soul Coughing
Madeleine Peyroux
Sex Pistols
Pat McDonald
Anya Marina
Black Keys
Bad Religion

I like that the list above kinda looks like a penguin.

TV - Don't own one, but The Daily Show and Colbert Report, plus heaping mounds of Archer and the occasional Game of Thrones stream over the InterWebs to me. Flight of the Conchords was amazing. Miss those guys.

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Leech Woman
True Romance
Walk Hard
The Lord of the Rings films
Still waiting for a decent adaptation of any book by Isaac Asimov or Douglas Adams
Lots more, but you get my drift...

Food - I thought I had a wide palette until my friend introduced me to cow brains and pickled quail eggs. Can't we just stop at sushi? I LOVE sushi, but that's as far down the culinary rabbit hole I like to go on a regular basis. That being said, I'll try almost anything once.
Six things I could never do without

...and five other really important things to be named later.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about everything. With that being said, I am able to quiet the voices and focus very well if need be. Yup.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wait a minute? There are typical Friday nights? You mean some people actually spend EVERY Friday haunting perfectly unhaunted houses, unicorn wrastlin, hallucinating scuba dives, jello wading, or practicing det tape origami? How boring. There are no typical Friday nights, just typical people. (inject smarmy self-satisfied smirk here, then slap me)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Although I don't like his music, Michael Jackson was good at what he did.
You should message me if
You are interested at all, bored, feel like messing with me (I can take it), want a terrible chicken salad recipe, or simply need the manual dexterity exercise.
The two of us
