My self-summary
Hi,

These things are always hard to fill out, yeah? Generally one comes off sounding either really boring or as a raging egomaniac. This is a problem, as I don't like people to know that I am a raging egomaniac until they know me a little better.

However, in an attempt to self-summarize-- I am a science geek turned lawyer. I thought I would become a patent attorney, but as it turns out the details of murder, arson and the like are much more interesting than deciding the obviousness or non-obviousness of an invention to a Person Holding Ordinary Skill In The Art (PHOSITA). (There are patent lawyers who name their daughters Phosita. If one of these daughers decides to kill their parents for giving them a stupid name, I'm pretty sure I could get them off. But I digress.)

Anyway, I decided to become a criminal lawyer. I figure with Michigan basically becoming a Third World economy, if I can't get a job as a prosecutor, I can always defend people and profit off their misery. Christ. No wonder people hate lawyers.

Anyway, if you've read this far, thanks, and send me a message.

I am smart, deadpan, and a news junkie
What I’m doing with my life
Lawyer, and I moonlight (or daylight, as the case may be) as a teacher. I also read a lot and play poker.
I’m really good at
Teaching, carrying on about politics, obsessing about football.
The first things people usually notice about me
The large baseball sized tumor on my neck...just kidding.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Shakespeare, George Orwell, Larry Niven, Batman

Movies: Sneakers, The Godfather, Love Actually

music: Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan

foods: anything I haven't had before. And Lamb Curry.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics for one. During the election I was so obsessed the first thing I did when I woke up in the morning was check the election blogs.

Football for another. For example, I spent a lot of time thinking this past football season about whether I actually wanted to watch Michigan and the Lions or whether it would be less damaging to my psyche to take an all-expenses-paid vacation to Guantanamo.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends. Or playing poker. Preferably both.
You should message me if
si hoc legeris.
