What I’m doing with my life
Been working for AppleCare for the past two years; working an ungodly about of hours. It's an interesting job I now have; full of predictable stories with unpredictable twists.

All the while making time for friends and family, and, of course, for my ladies Caitlyn, Adiera, Pearl, and Jade.
I also have a sugar glider (Ezio) and two cats (Snickers & Toffee (Won my girls in a break up: Ask me the story sometime; it's a great one (I'm also getting really good at placing parentheticals in random places. (<=== See? Told you.)).)).
I’m really good at
... Fixing iOS devices
... Cooking
... Tending bar
... Writing
... Storytelling
... Story-listening
... Movie quotes!
The first things people usually notice about me
Whichever pipe (tobacco, and no, it's not wacky) I have on me that day and, if I wear one, my flat-cap.
They've been classified as "the right amount of swag[ger]" on multiple occasions: Has to be true, right?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These lists are far too long...
Books: Dark Tower series (only King stuff I actually enjoy), Neil Gaiman (American Gods, The Graveyard Book, Ananzi Boys, Neverwhere, Fragile Things, etc (to name a few)), Daniel Quinn (Ishmael, Story of B, My Ishmael, Beyond Civilization, If They Give You Lined Paper; Write Sideways, The Holy), Song of Ice & Fire series, The Bartimeaus Saga (Four part series written for young adults, but British young adults, not teenies with vampire obsessions), & some obscure science essays and journals
And, just finished my first Vonnegut book and loved it. His slights are ever so subtle yet blatant as fuck-all.
Movies: {Cuss! Too many to list!} Kevin Smith; True Romance; Fight Club (actually like the movie better than the book--it brings light to different facets of the story that are sort of hidden in the narrator's thoughts); Waiting... (twelve years restaurants... How could I not?); iRobot; Life Aquatic; The Fantastic Mr Fox (if you haven't noticed); Hotel Chevalier; VHS; Evil Dead(s); Alien saga; Necromentia; The Fast and the Furious movies (save for the second one because that was a silly title); Nightmare Before Christmas; Corpse Bride; 9; Big Fish; Ed Wood; The Usual Suspects; Back to the Future I, II, & III; Ninja Turtles (duh!); (While we're at it...) The Mighty Ducks I, II, & III; Ruby Sparks; Tucker and Dale v. Evil; The Cabin in the Woods; Death to Smoochie; The Fountain ... Seriously, anything from classics to obscure B-flicks to avant garde film experiments. Just ask about a movie. Chances are, I've seen it or it's on my list or it needs to be on my list.
TV Shows: Zim... Only thing that comes to mind. ... On second thought
Scrubs; How I Met Your Mother; Game of Thrones; The Walking Dead; Sifl and Olly; Simpsons; Lucy, The Daughter of the Devil; Frisky Dingo; Sealab 2021
Music: Huge list. The Dear Hunter; Co&Cam; Foo Fighters; Metric; Inspection 12; Man Man; Chiodos; Imagine Dragons; Regina Spektor; Finch; Led Zepplin; Pink Floyd; Eric Clapton; The Beatles; The Beets; G Love; I Am Ghost; Mum; Sigur Ros; Amiina; Saves the Day; Scary Kids; Daniel Johnston (select songs (which happen to be some of my all-time favorites)); Garfunkel and Oates; etc...
I'm a musician at heart and a poet/lover-of-classical-prose, so your music must speak to both of those facets of mine. Make me feel what prompted you to write that song. Bring me that connection.
FOOD!: Yes, please. I don't look like it, but I love food and I can eat a lot. My favorite to eat is delicious. My favorite to prepare is Italian.
I've recently been cooking a bunch of Latin dishes: Lechon Asado, Picadillo, Masitas de Puerco, Carne con Papas. Wondering what else I can put on that list.
Six things I could never do without
My family; Caitlyn (my car); Pearl (my surfboard); Adiera (my guitar); Jade (my motorcycle); My kids (three pets)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, Love, & Other Quandaries (Why people think they are smarter than everyone else is a recent one. Don't get it. You're not smarter than me, so stop trying to convince me that you need a new iPhone 6+ at no cost to you.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends and/or family, solving complex equations like others solve crosswords, or nothing at all.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm Batman.
You should message me if
... you have movie quotes you want me to try to guess. "What movie's this from? '...'"
... you have stories to tell
... you want to hear some stories (fiction and non)
... you like to play chess, backgammon, and/or go (this is a call to all genders (Yes. I said "all".))
... you are Cara Santa Maria (I will rock your world, and you mine)
The two of us
