My self-summary
I'm a middle-aged lawyer. I teach a criminal justice class. I left a nine-year relationship a few years ago, and while it was a mess, I'm working on figuring out what and where I want to be.
What I’m doing with my life
Oh, the irony. This question already had a pretty apt answer ("I'm an empty answer...fill me out!"). Or, I suppose, I could just refer you to the above answer.
I’m really good at
Not to sound arrogant, but I'm good at a lot of things, though not an expert at anything, really. The classic "jack of all trades, master of none." Or, as I put it to a friend, I'm not a genius; I am, however, ten near-geniuses. If that makes any sense...
The first things people usually notice about me
After a random quizzing of friends, the consensus is: my snarky sense of humor, my half-smile, my sense of chivalry, the kissbite on the neck gets some pretty good reviews, the suit of armor, dented and slightly rusty though it may be...oh, and one friend insists that I mention my butt (although in retrospect, I'm not 100% certain she was saying "your" and not "you").
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Stand by Stephen King, and anything on modern politics or history.
Movies: Nothing In Common is my favorite movie.
Shows (Theatric): Phantom of the Opera
Shows (Television): Archer, Big Bang Theory, Castle, Doctor Who, Elementary, Red Eye...
Music: Depends on my mood. It could be ANYTHING...
Food: I'm really not a foodie. I cook pretty well, but as to eating it, whatever's at hand and easy...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything. Between a touch of ADD (I tend to run off on tangentSQUIRREL!) and a complete inability to shut my brain down for rest and reboot, I tend to have conversations with myself that can run into the hours.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing trivia at the local bar, poking around the internet, or watching DVDs of Archer and Big Bang Theory.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Between my fear of saying something extremely embarrassing and my occasional inability to shut off my motor mouth, it's difficult to think of anything that's both private and that I'm willing to admit to, but here goes...despite my intense fascination with the Chivalric and Southern Codes of Etiquette, they were not a product of my Southern upbringing, but a response to it. My parents were actually very progressive for 1970s Arkansas. I rebelled in the only way I could - by becoming an Arkansan Alex P. Keaton.
The two of us
