My self-summary
Literary genius with a day job. But wait, there is so much more to it than that. I'm well spoken and intellectual. I also know how to work hard and get dirty. I spent several years as a roughneck, so I know all about swinging a sledgehammer and turning a pipe wrench.
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.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I'm working full time on trying to move up the ladder at my job.
I spend a lot of time singing bad karaoke and engaging in stimulating conversation.
I’m really good at
Offering unwavering support to family and friends
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
Public speaking
Rembering things
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
The first things people usually notice about me
My somewhat reserved demeanor. Or perhaps my overwhelming wisdom and intellect that knows few rivals. Or maybe just my humility....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Just about anything found in the classic book bargain section of Barnes and Noble. Anything by Chuck Palahniuk, Cormac McCarthy, or Brett Easton Ellis. Good satire really blows my hair back. Legal thrillers for a guilty pleasure. Things the Grandchildren Should Know by Mark Oliver Everett. The beat generation and the gonzo stylings of Mr. Hunter S. Thompson. Oh, and I'll take Fitzgerald over Hemingway, but just barely.

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.
The six things I could never do without
1.Family and friends
4.Good Conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Well, in no particular order....
People that I know*Politics*Sports*God*The ever widening class divisions in America*Breasts*World Hunger*Religion*Western Culture*What it means to be a Man*Marxism*What is wrong with the Dallas Cowboys?*Nature vs. Nurture*why everytime I like a television show, it gets canceled within two seasons*Truth*New drinks to try*Love*I wish I had hair like a young Christian Slater*My Memaw*ways to be clever*how long will it take men to be entirely phased out by evolution*selfishness*sin*ants*priorities*style vs. substance*regional dialect*
On a typical Friday night I am
Not sure I've ever established what constitutes a "typical" Friday night. I could be at the bar with friends, on a date, cooking a nice meal, or planning a typical Saturday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
will be decided on a case by case basis
You should message me if
You are in the mood to check out some live music. I've been noticing a lot of good shows lately, and I think meeting someone who is down to enjoy them is about as good a basis for starting a relationship as any that I can think of. Also, lest you think it's all about what I want to do, I promise to be enthusiastic about trying whatever it is you are passionate about. I would love for you to message me and tell me what that is!
