My name's KC, it's the Gaelic spelling (that and I'm pretty sure my mother was still high on birthing drugs when they chose it) so I'm actually the only one in the united states that has it....nifty until I Google myself and quickly become horrified.
I love music, books, video games, and hanging out with friends. I dig it when guys use proper English, and don't mind the fact that I talk like it's 1937. I tend to be reserved at first, but if you get to know me you'll find I'm pretty awesome.
*Please bear with me as I work to scale this thing down. It's become clouded with ramblings and things I've written solely for my own amusement.
tl;dr.... I'm an awkward, pasty, nerd. Check my music list, that's probably the most important thing on here. I guarantee if we jive on that we'll get along.
Music borders on being a religious experience for me, whether it's sitting at home, driving in my car zoning out or at a show; I love everything to do with it. That being said.... one of my goals is a journalism degree with a focus in music.
I spend most of my time hanging out with my friends and family (particularly my brother as he also fills the role of best friend with poor ideas and an even poorer moral compass).
*10/10 you can find me at a Sexy Teenager's show
Being the DD
Talking about dinosaurs or extinct sharks
Kicking it with old people.
Giving a brief history on rock (and by that I mean, punk, new wave, hardcore, indie, post- hardcore)
Telling a story in under five minutes
Not texting you every five seconds
Kicking your ass at every possible game you own
Mocking you for me kicking your ass
Swearing like a sailor on leave
Looking swell in hats
Responding to your messages in 4-7 business days
Making terrible puns
Responding with "cool story bro!"
White girl dancing, getting people to laugh at my sweet moves
Giving you that random fact you never asked for.
Texting like a stroke victim.
After my complexion probably the Saves the Day tattoo I have on my wrist.

Side Note: If you're a vegetarian we're going to have issues. I don't trust anyone who doesn't enjoy shoving copious amounts of bacon into their mouth hole.
I got most outgoing in my high school class. I'm still confused about it as I've always been shy.
I have a soft spot for Irish Catholic guys. I'm convinced my parents brainwashed me.
I like to refer to random people as Gypsies. I'm not sure why, but it's not stopping.
I'm pretty introverted so while I love going out with my friends, it takes a bit of time to decompress.
There's a solid chance I just spent $70 on books about the French resistance. Sue me.
I'm well aware that my username is stupid. It originally was just trolosaurus. My mom said it made me sound like a dude, so I threw cute in front of it and yelled "you don't know me!"
Throw me a Tenor Sax and I can still play The Pirates of the Carribean theme song. It's okay to be jealous.
I run and jump everywhere. I'm not really sure why, but I do, and you can't stop me.
I go on imgur quite a bit, which means every time I see something pop up on Facebook days later I immediately judge you for being behind the times. I also dislike you for thinking 9gag is pretty okay. It is not, ever.
I enjoy making "calls it as I see it" jokes and following it up with "whale biologist."
I can still recite Hamlet's To Be or Not to Be soliloquy.
Both of my best friends are vegetarian. While eating dinner one night they gave me filthy looks for eating meat, so I slapped them both in the face with a rib. I regret nothing.
I have a slight obsession with making sure my cars are standard.
Speaking of; my car's name is Dee Reynolds and she's the love of my life.
I spend a decent amount of time looking up marine life facts. I'm fun at parties.
I like guys with tattoos. Not very private, but hey, this is the interwebz and momma didn't raise no fool.
If you have a tribal tattoo, I'll probably silently be judging you. (Unless you're an All Black....then it's acceptable). No offense, you just have terrible decision making skills and I hate you for it.
*also helps if you don't wear shit with bling or anything Ed Hardy brah!
