Of course, I wouldn't want my self summary to sound like nothing more than a love ode to myself. The fact is, I only know how to work hard because I never took school seriously and I still haven't graduated college. It took years of trudging around in the mud before I learned to focus and take both life and myself seriously. I've hit my stride now.
I spend a lot of time singing bad karaoke and engaging in stimulating conversation.
Trivial Pursuit - not sure if that is a good thing
Offering my two cents - I know that might seem contradictory from listening, but I like to think I keep a good balance
Talking trash about Oklahoma
Swinging a sledgehammer
Waking up - I'm not usually too grumpy or foggy in the morning
Seeing both sides of an issue
Public walking - It's an art
Minding my manners
Movies - I'm a fan of all kinds of movies and pretty much all genres. Paul Newman was just about the coolest dude ever. Fight club is the cult movie of my generation. I'll take Clint Eastwood over The Duke even if it makes me unamerican. I'm a sucker for old movies, but I keep up with the new ones. If Bill Murrey is in it, I'll see it. Audrey Hepburn can make any cinematic experience worthwhile.
Music - Anything Classic Rock; The Eels; Counting Crows; Anything early 90's grunge rock; Texas country (Nashville Sucks out loud!); Old shcool R&B; Motown; Big band; Blues; Drive By Truckers; Ray Wylie Hubbard; The Talking Heads; Telegraph Canyon; Old 97's; Tom Petty; Deano; Buddy Holly; Pretty much any project involving Jack White or Ryan Adams; Bob Dylan is the greatest poet ever!; All apologies to Plath,Yeates, and of course Dylan Thomas.
Food - I'll try just about anything once and I generally don't have a problem with seconds. Two of the best things about Texas....Tex Mex and BBQ. I'll eat just about any steak, but no cut of meat can possibly compare to a perfectly prepared ribeye.
