My self-summary
This is what happens: I start writing, and I can't stop. I'm like that: a writer, that is. Anyway, I'm not a writer by trade; fiction, ew. I went to school to teach history, but since no one wants me to even though Rod Blagojevich says I can, I'm going into retail management instead, unless I can get into grad school. Yeah. Anyway, besides history, I love computers, St. Louis Cardinals baseball and, above all, great TV shows and film.

I am damned smart, insightful, and using too many words
What I’m doing with my life
I hadn't updated this in four years, but since I'm married and the paragraph is irrelevant you get to read this.
I’m really good at
I can write with the best of them, and my taste in television and films (and my ability to relate that taste) is better than yours (but not as good as Tim Goodman or Roger Ebert's.) I'm quite intelligent (but not annoyingly so; wait, is that possible?) and very analytical (but not annoyingly so; shut up, joke of repetition.) I'd say I'm good at dancing, but I never dance, and I drive fast but have never raced for NASCAR. Or is it "Nascar?" I get them confused with NASDAQ.

I'm also very, very good at radio. I spent almost a decade in the industry and can read and write news as well as produce broadcasts with the greatest of ease. My on-and-off webradio show I hosted with a friend sounds quite good for a thrown-together effort shoved in the corner of a leaky basement.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am not other people, thus this question perplexes me. I guess they notice I dress rather normal, if a bit on the dressy side (khakis > jeans,) and my hair is anything but spectacular (cowlicks < everything else in the world, including Reincarnated Hitler.) I should have a neon sign above my head that screams "average!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: umm, I don't read enough; my one flaw! Let's substitute TV shows and go with Wonderfalls, Gilmore Girls, Scrubs, Arrested Development, The Sopranos, The Apprentice, 24, Dead Like Me, SNL, The Simpsons and various others that make this list way too long.

Movies: The Incredibles, Garden State, Back to the Future, The Paper, American Beauty, Office Space, Rushmore, Ghost World, American Pie, Home Alone, High Fidelity, West Side Story, Better Luck Tomorrow, Chicago. We'll stop there, save to say that Kevin Smith films do right by me, as do Star Wars and Star Trek flicks.

Music: My taste in music sucks. Popular stuff mostly, especially 80's pop. Film scores make me tingle as well.

Foods: Blah American. Burgers. Psghetti. Chinese is fine. Chicago-Style Hot Dogs are the new manna.
Six things I could never do without
The internet, Cardinals baseball, television and movies, my XM Satellite Radio, roads to travel on, and first and foremost Emily.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Films and television, history, roads (I'm a roadgeek; it's hard to explain.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working, at a movie, travelling somewhere, or surfing Wikipedia. I spend hours surfing Wikipedia. I kid not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes wish I was deaf so I would be motivated to become fluent, not just polite, in American Sign Language and would then get to use it all the time rather than speaking.
You should message me if
Um...I dunno. I used to have "you look like Rachel Weisz" here, but Emily would probably kill you. So let's put "you don't look like Rachel Weisz." Yeah. That's it.
