so this one time my friend and I are walking down the street, and sitting on this nearby shrubbery is what to this day is the strangest looking bug I've ever seen. wings, legs, stripes, all the peculiarities in the entirety of the insect kingdom contained in this one slightly-too-large-for-comfort bug. so my friend turns to me and says "I'll give you a dollar if you eat that bug." I turned to him, said "no," and my friend asked me, "why not?"
I then replied: "...because I don't want to eat a bug."
I know, I know, it's not funny. but for some reason I giggle like a schoolgirl every time. On a more serious note, I actually am very much down with smiles.
I've also attempted knitting, t-shirt design, baking, and rocking, with varying degrees of success.
I am repetitive, redundant, and repetitious
I work at a tech startup in Chelsea.
When I'm not on the clock, I'm running around doing something or other. Eating is usually involved. Sleeping is great when it happens.
as for outside the confines of this site.... my friend suggested I use the word zest, which is better than my phony idea of "my horrible goiter". I've been told I'm very outgoing, though.
Since getting an iPad, I've gotten into comic books like woah. You name it, I'm probably down with it. Try me.
Bookwise, currently it's James Bond novels, in order. Fourteen in total. It's getting pretty tough to finish - they're REALLY racist. Yikes. I switched to H.P. Lovecraft for a bit, but he's also pretty racist. Old books, man. Old books.
Movies? The Big Lebowski, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, In Bruges, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind jump to the forefront, but to get a little obscure, I also like either version of Metropolis, Being There, Island Claws, Robot Monster, Electric Dragon 80000 V, and my favorite of all bizarre movies, PUTNEY SWOPE. seriously, watch it. oh, plus all the standard stuff, you know. (Kubrick, Tarantino, Aronofsky, Burton, Gilliam, Kurosawa, Romero, Lynch, the Coen brothers, the Farrelly brothers, Kevin Smith, Spike Lee, Wes Anderson, Troma movies, etc.)
MUSIC is the best.
my headphones : they saved my life.
NOTE: a crippling hard drive crash has severely skewed my listening habits to whatever i could grab before the damn thing went down. boourns.
food: pizza, tacos, stir-fry, thai, sushi, other japanese (especially gyoza), chicken cutlets with couscous and peas and carrots, gyros (no tzatziki), jello, funfetti cake. Remember Roy Rogers? That cornbread, my god.
awesomeness not mentioned: Doctor Who, cartoons, monopoly, old school video games, and occasionally anime (yeah i said it. sue me.)
Also I have a horrible goiter that obscures most of my face. Check my pictures, you'll see what's up.
ALSO, AT THE TIME OF THIS UPDATING, I REALLY WANT WHITE CASTLE. That's nothing to be ashamed of though.
