According to my dog, I'm awesome... though according to him, so is everyone else... so...
I guess I'm intelligent; many[who?] people have said I am. However, I don't have any readily available test results to confirm it. Plus, I think it's the kind of intelligence that can't manifest itself in meaningful ways. My brain is mostly cluttered with useless geography/history trivia and old TV/movie lines.
I play/write music , and if I do say so myself, I'm really quite terrible. I play bass guitar and regular guitar. I also "know" how to play the drums, but don't have the coordination to pull it off very well. I'm also told I do a spot on John K Samson. If you ask nicely I'll show it off. I knit and crochet. I'm also good fixing/building things. Pretty much good at anything with my hands in general.
I tend to be a bit of a lefty-pinko-socialist in my political beliefs, and one day aspire to world domination. All will tremble in terror before my generous social programs and progressive environmental management!!!
If you're one of those people who likes convenient categories, I'm INTJ (sometimes INTP if the moon aligns just right)
Basically, what you're looking at is an aging hipster punk desperately avoiding being ordinary.
um... What else...
I've been told I'm one in a million*
*Editor's note: Given that there are over seven billion people on earth it is therefore reasonable to assume there are over seven thousand people like him. Maybe more, as this is a subjective statement based on a small number of reviews and not any empirical studies.
Raising a cat and dog.
Bestowing titles of nobility on said pets.
Consuming media the reinforces my previously held beliefs.
Let's move on shall we.
Though it's probably the nail polish.
Informational stuff, Dystopian fiction, pretentious crap, etc.
If you bring up the walking dead, I will discuss the comics as if you actually care.
Want to hear my thesis on why the original Robocop is an objectively great movie?
Remember when StarTrek revolved around Piccard outwitting his adversaries? Those were good times... Dr Who is pretty great though.
Seventeen years later, this song still send shivers down my spine. If you like the same dinosaur music as me I will swoon. Bonus points if you're pretentious like me and have a fucktonne of vinyl.
I like things I can extract nutrients from and convert into adenosine triphosphate.
Particularly: poutine (fuck you spell check! it's a real thing), sushi, Indian, burritos...
The six things I could easily do without:
1. Sentences starting with "I don't want to sound racist, but..."
2. Imperial measurements
3. Housing as a profit market
4. Gender roles
5. People who take themselves too seriously or are painfully self-unawre
6. The dog's hot garbage breath in my face first thing in the morning
Every damned thing on the planet. You know when you can't stop your mind from moving over every subject imaginable until the vastness of the universe begins to weigh on it?
... Oh... well I do.
As a craft beer snob you'll find me at only the finest dive bars. I prefer laid-back bars over noisy pubs and I prefer noisy pubs over dance clubs (Hey that rhymes!). Ergo, I don't care for loud crowded places.
I guess that's more of an ideal Friday, not a typical one. It could just as easily be staying in... also might be a Saturday.
In closing, I am very interested in the opportunity to join your team and would like to schedule an interview to learn more about how I can support your organization’s objectives.
