OK for real this time... I was raised in Austin. I went to the University of Texas (also in Austin) and got a degree in computer engineering. Worked in DFW for a few years, moved back to Austin for a startup opportunity, then just moved back here. I have an endlessly entertaining, self-aggrandizing sense of humor. I like to debate -- it's a great way to challenge yourself and learn about all sides of a problem. I hate being wrong, but I'll [usually] admit when I am. It's hard for me to get upset by something going wrong since I usually take the spilt-milk approach and try to learn rather than complain. It's easy for me to get upset by someone being stupid. I still rarely lose my temper because I think there's almost nothing in life worth getting angry about. My car's name is Xandra. I have Germany, Japan, and Italy topping my to-visit list. The first time I ever brought a girl flowers on a date, she laughed at me for being a dork. It was weak. I still sometimes bring flowers on a date. I like to say "snaptastic!", "snappasaurus rex!", or "snapplesauce!" after a good burn.
I'm looking for a confident woman who can carry a meaningful conversation. A good sense of humor is a must, which hopefully includes not being easily offended.
In my free time, I'm usually either playing basketball, hangin out with friends (karaoke, tubing in San Marcos, whatevs), working with/learning about technology (whether it's cars, chipsets, or web app frameworks), or being eyegasmically good-looking.
Yeah, that's right. A guy who likes cars, sports, and computers. Bet you never thought you'd find one of those... LADIES, YOUR PRINCE HAS ARRIVED.
- I love singing, and I'm purty good at it, if I do say so myself. And I do. I won't claim to be much of a dancer, though... not that that stops me from trying.
- Whistling. Seriously. Like I have whistling groupies. It's crazy. Although I'm sure my eyegasmic good looks have something to do with said groupies, too.
But more seriously, probably my voice. Apparently it sounds way deeper to others than it does in my own head.
I'm not picky about food, but Indian, Italian, and Mexican top my list. And scotch. Does that count?
Books: I mostly read non-fiction. Recently finished "Stumbling Upon Happiness" by Dan Gilbert. Great read. Now reading "Overshoot" by William Catton.
... how anti-sway bars work.
... what makes Charles Ramsey such a badass. Not only did he help free those women, but you can tell from his interviews that he is the exact same person no matter who he is talking to. I wish we could all be that real.
I have plush Mario and Yoshi dolls sitting next to my TV.
I'm straight and all, but I don't think I could say no to Will Smith. Really, who could? The man's hotness transcends gender and sexual preference.
... I guess that's three things, but I just don't want us to keep any secrets from each other, y'know?
