My self-summary
I grew up in Texas, but have lived in various places across the country....Seattle, Atlanta, etc. I had to move around for the career for most of my 20s, but have now gotten to a place where I can choose where I want to be. I lived in lower Manhattan for the last 8 years, and still have a place there....thus the username.... But, I've chosen to return home to Houston and have a little more normal daily existence.
What I’m doing with my life
My life is pretty full. I have a good group of friends and the job I always wanted. I work in media and it provides me a lot of interesting opportunities. So, I'm never bored, and always have stories to tell. I'm looking for someone who is up for some adventures and to listen to a few of those stories. A partner in crime, if you will.......Bonus if she has some stories of her own, and can introduce new adventure ideas. I'd like to find someone that can be equally comfortable hanging out in a dive bar, as well as getting dressed up for an event. And, sometimes, maybe doing nothing much at all except staying in and avoiding the cold.
I’m really good at
Talking...It's really my only great life skill. To do that, you also have to be a good listener, so I guess I'm good at that, too. But, I can also make a mean grilled cheese, and other basic food items. I love road trips, and have been praised for my ability to plan them just enough. I am also a human Pandora, and can gladly suggest music and bore you with factoids about most any musician or band.
The first things people usually notice about me
Wow...I'm not sure. I really don't know or care that much, to be honest...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't sit to watch too many movies, but Big Lebowski and Garden State are faves. I think John Hughes movies brilliantly shaped most kids of the 80s childhoods, and, I have a weird connection to the movie, Bernie.

Shows: I like a bunch, but two that come immediately to mind are The Daily Show and Boardwalk Empire. When I want to do nothing, I sit and watch American Pickers with a bag of chips. Also, I felt like I lost a friend when Breaking Bad that weird?

Foodwise, I'm a bbq snob. But, have a host of favorite restaurants around the city. I've drawn up what amounts to flowcharts on the best Pizza in town, and can always be convinced to go to the Meatball Shop.

I could write forever about music.... But, The Replacements are amazing, and I believe Dave Grohl can do no wrong. I always love a good punk song. I know hip hop surprisingly well, and have a deep well of knowledge about blues. I'll argue forever that the 80s decade was the best for music. I like Dylan, and a bunch of little known bands from the 90s....Really, almost anything is good with me. My music geekery knows no bounds.

My book choices are probably cliche'...On the Road, The Little Prince, Confederacy of Dunces, and almost everything by Chuck Klosterman. I like Hunter S. Thompson, and have to read a lot of biographies and such for work....
Six things I could never do without
Peanut M&Ms
Really soft towels
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I can do today that could possibly make for a good story tomorrow.
On a typical Friday night I am
I go out to a lot of concerts and, a nice restaurant followed by a good show is the goal most weekends. Sometimes, though, I'd rather just hang out at home and let the phone die...

Some Fridays are spent driving to another locale when the need for a change of scenery arises.

Lots of options...I'm usually up for anything.
I don't like the idea of "Typical Fridays".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really hate crumpled tissues...It's my biggest pet peeve...
You should message me if
You don't take yourself too seriously, and want to have fun....And most importantly, you like the idea of having someone to laugh at the daily ups and downs of life with.
The two of us
