My self-summary
I'm a pretty laid-back guy with a witty, sarcastic sense of humor (well, people often laugh when I speak, so take that how you will.) I'm a glass-half-full type, and it's tough to find me without a smile or not telling a joke.

That's not to say I don't have a serious side. I enjoy my job and I work hard at it. Ultimately, though, I prefer a day with sunshine, water, and good company.
What I’m doing with my life
I work an office job but it's not as bad as it sounds. I get to travel a bit (mostly little trips to big cities) so it keeps things interesting and the challenges fresh. I'm not a morning person, so I don't roll out of bed excited to go to work every day, but once I get a little coffee in me I largely enjoy what I do.

I go out sometimes during the week but for the most part my weeknights are pretty quiet. Like most, I have a few shows I enjoy, or a good movie after dinner, but it's hard to get too crazy during the week anymore when I'm already not a morning person to begin with.

I'm a big fan of the weekends, though, especially the three-day kind. I like to get out and hit the beach, pool, springs (Ginnie), river, whatever. I work hard during the week, so I play hard over the weekend.

Ultimately, I want to be a writer (with a preference towards being a good one) and leave the office job behind. I have a ton of great ideas but can't seem to find the time to start in on one of them. Someday.
I’m really good at
Come-back lines and wise cracks, putting my foot in my mouth, writing, giving advice, cooking breakfast (and eating it, if we're being honest), beer pong, playing frisbee with my dog, planning utterly massive road trips on the fly and pulling them off like it's my job!! (Reference: The Great American Road Trip -- Seattle to Gainesville, the scenic route).
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing people notice about me... probably says more about them than it does about me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read often, so I could make this a big list. Some favorites, though:
The Lord of the Rings (addicted as a child); most of Dan Brown's books; Dune; the Bourne Trilogy; anything by Crichton; anything by Arthur C Clarke or Isaac Asimov; Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' trilogy (The Golden Compass, etc); Life of Pi, The Know-It-All; Forrest Gump (the movie is good, too, but the book is better); the Ender series; Hunger Games series (the ending was weak but, hey, nothing's perfect); and I can even admit to having read (and enjoyed) the Harry Potter series.

When it comes to movies I prefer good comedies (Wedding Crashers, Old School, The Hangover); movies that make me think or have a good twist or surprise (The Sixth Sense, The Prestige, Se7en, The Game, The Matrix); robbery movies (The Score, The Italian Job, Thomas Crown Affair); or good police/detective movies (Along Came a Spider, The Bone Collector (also a very good book), Se7en (again), The Fugitive.) Oh, and who doesn't like The Shawshank Redemption (how can you not love Morgan Freeman's voice?)

Evidently I also have an affinity for parenthesis (duh!)

My musical tastes are pretty varied and random, but that's what everyone says. Everything from Rock to Classical is fair game, but my favorites have to be The Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Matthews Band, and Sublime.

Food: Yes, please.
Six things I could never do without
-The Internet. Seriously, imagine life without it: you probably wouldn't even know who I am.
-My sarcastic, (sometimes) corny, witty (if I do say so myself), silly (without a doubt) sense of humor.
-Gator home games (I suppose I technically do live without these for the majority of the year, but you get the point.)
-My friends...Awwwww.
-A glass...half full.

Yes, that's only 5 things. I'm a minimalist, what can I say?

Could there be something (someone) to be #6? Other than parenthesis (?) (You'll get that if you've been following from the top.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finding that one little invention that every person in the world will want, once they know that it exists.

Words like "wouldn't've" should be legitimate double contractions.

Why can't I enjoy a roll of paper towels like my dog does?
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends (either out and about or entertaining at my place) and looking forward to the rest of the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I quit smoking in March of 2013. It was a bad habit I'm glad is behind me. Life is good, so don't short-change yourself.
You should message me if
You can take sarcasm and dish it right back out.

You can carry on an intelligent conversation -- you're open-minded but have an opinion.

You like to read and could either suggest some good books for me or would be open to a suggestion for yourself.

Gator Football Saturdays rarely find you without some combination of friends, beer, sunshine and, of course, Gator Football (or if one did happen to find you without such things, you wouldn't be happy about the situation.)


You can't remember the last book you read.

You don't know the difference between:

There, their, and they're
Then and than
Your and you're
It's and its

You think the glass is half empty.
