My name is Alex (although I also respond to Blue, Chad, A.Ho, and A-Rod.. strangely enough). I never know what to put in this box, but that seems to be a fairly common complaint to this OKC business.
I'm a construction manager for a company that puts up cellphone towers, where my speciality is LTE upgrades. (We contract with one of the major carriers who shall remain nameless here, but if you're looking at this on your phone at 4G speeds there is about a 1 in 4 chance I can say 'you're welcome')
I recently got hipster glasses and quite enjoy coffee shops, but I don't wear skinny jeans, am only minimally tatt'ed up, and listen to music you have definitely heard of, so on the whole I think I'm pretty tolerable.
Also, about 95% of the time I don't smell bad.
Starting at the new year work has me traveling to MN's surrounding states quite a bit, so I got back into OKCupid both in hopes of finding people to hang out with when I start getting cabin fever in my hotel room on the road, and because I have even less time in Minneapolis to meet people.
Finally, I boycott the six things I could never do without question, but some of my favorite things in the world are:
N/MPR, Zed (the cat that ran into my house when I was moving in two years ago and more or less hasn't left since), my motorcycle, and the written word.
i.e. working in the field I graduated with a major in, almost having enough spare time to spend with friends and family, and somehow getting to enjoy my motorcycle in march in MN
Getting parking tickets
Reading with a quickness
Also, that I smell of rich mahogany.
Movies: Children of Men, Airplane, The Royal Tenenbaums
Shows: 30 Rock, (earlier) LOST
Music: Most things indy, hip hop to punk (The Current is a very heavily used pre-set on me's car stereo)
Food: just about everything.. (I'd been a vegetarian since I was 13, but I've been becoming lax about it in my old age)
This week in particular:
Whether or not I feel comfortable with 'totes' entering the popular culture lexicon.
