I love to be the funny guy in the room, I usually can't help myself when it comes to cracking a joke...if something seems funny to me, I just have to make a comment about it....When no one laughs at the comment, I then realize it wasn't really that funny to begin with....then i go into a corner in shame....I like to call that corner "Shame-corner"...Probably should have came up with something more original than that.
I love sports. I am a die hard NY sports fan!! (Go Mets!!!.....depression rising...rising)
My Hero is, and will always be Humphrey Bogart
I like taking care of people....I dislike when someone takes a bite out of sandwich and says "Wow this is awful...do you want a bite?"
IN THE REAL WORLD
I work for a wonderful summer camp I work all year round. That's what I do for a living, recruit kids to come to an AMAZING summer camp that I run every summer. (Who ever thought that could be a real job? When I was 6 I imagined being a professional wrestler, fireman or hosting the tonight show...yep I was that kid)
Also for some reason I am good at getting applause for belting out Beatles songs at 5:30am on the 4 train with my eyes closed...lots of stories there. (Change Beatles to Meatloaf's "I'd Do Anything For Love" and this would be 1000% more accurate)
ODD TV Trivia (I'm your guy for bar trivia night when you say to your other teammates "I've never heard of that show before")
Seriously though when I was younger people thought I looked like A mix of Fred Savage (Kevin Arnold) from the Wonder Years & Ben Savage (Cory Matthews from Boy Meets World)...so that got me a lot of dates....Wait....it did the opposite of that.
T.V. Shows: Game of Thrones, Modern Family, HIMYM, 30 Rock, The Simpsons (my fav of all time), The West Wing, The Newsroom, Community, Happy Endings, Brooklyn 99
Music: Way too many to name...but I love Motown so...The Temptations, Bill Withers, Sam Cooke come to mind...Also I have man crushes on Bruno Mars & Justin Timberlake...so their music as well....and the Beatles (Much love & respect)
Food: Love Thai food!!...Also the French came up with these fries a while back that I have always loved...Amazingly I don't like freedom fries so go figure (Man that is an outdated joke....I'll leave it in there though)
Books: To Kill A Mockingbird....even though it gave me no insight on how to actually Kill A Mockingbird.
Also I love Michael Chichton Books (Jurassic Park = Even Better Book than Movie...GASP!!!)
2.) My DVR - This awesome invention allows me to watch Oprah over and over again...or other shows (Note: I wrote this before Oprah went off the air but out of respect to her, I am keeping it in my profile...Praise Oprah!)
3.) Toy Trains - How else would my toys figures from 1840 get their supplies shipped to them in a timely matter...boats you may suggest...well screw toy boats, they are super lame.
4.) Pants - When a person starts to think that they don't need wear pants anymore, that person instantly starts to spiral down into a world of despair....also their legs get cold more easily.
5.) Texting Friends - How else would I be able to quickly send the
message "Donald Sterling is in front of me on line in the bakery...he keeps asking for them to split the black & white cookies in half, and flat out refuses to take the black part home.....then he muttered something about NOT being a racist"
6.) My Sense of Right & Wrong- For Example: It is RIGHT to give up your seat to a pregnant woman on the subway...It is WRONG to give up your seat to a woman who looks pregnant, but just happens to be overweight...this usually leads to a lot of profanity, and getting hit by a purse that holds a sandwich inside of it.
My real list most likely would include more real things like:
- My Friends
- My Future
- Finding Someone Special
- Yada Yada Yada
but that's totally boring, though still important.
Oh, also on Fridays I am usually at bar to discuss finance, politics, and who looks better in a tucked in shirt...(it's always the guy you least expect)...plus movies sometimes...pretty regular stuff.
