I swear. A lot.
I really wish I could still put that I drive an '89 Caddy. Old girl rusted through (thanks, Michigan roads!) and I'm stuck with a big ol' GMC van at the moment. I make it cool, though. Mostly by pumping the oldies station really loud to scare off teenagers.
Also I have a cat, a badass bug-hunting, stuff-climbing, spider-man kitty cat. I really love her. I'm afraid it's not, however, mutual.
Also! Important side note: "Your Mom" and "That's what she said!" jokes are the absolute peak of humorous discourse, and I will brook no argument to the contrary. ^_^
In the meantime, I take my obligations to my friends very seriously, and I try not to take my work very seriously at all. They say waiting tables is one of the most stressful jobs out there, so I try to stay relaxed.
Finally breaking into my chosen career with an apprenticeship in radio. Can't wait to get on the air and spit some truth.
I also have a not-so-secret dream to be a stand up comic. =D in reality, that means I watch a lot of stand up comedy.
Oh and I speak German very well, having spent a year studying it in, you know, Germany. Miss that place somethin' fierce, I'll tell ya.
Also, socks and sandals. I catch a lot of hell for that, especially during the summer, but dude. Try it. Super comfy.
(also khaki shorts, sometimes during the winter. just for a goof.)
I'll call you "dude", or "man" or "bro", even if you're a complete stranger, or a girl.

Man, fuckin' all of it. I could probably stand to lose a couple of pounds off the midsection, but damn. There's so much excellent food, if you know where to look. Like Bubba's burgers, JP's Diner, J&S Hamburg, Stella's, man. everything.
I need to finish this one later, after I take a careful reckoning of all my favorite culture stuff and pare it down to a condensed list. TBE.
2. Good music. I never have to do without it, though, the music in my head is usually better than the stuff I hear day-to-day anyhow.
3. Parmesan cheese.
4. The Joe Rogan Experience.
Also, I smoke - pipe tobacco, cigarettes, that sort of thing. I'm not a dick about it, and I'm not a chain-smoker or anything. It's more of a hobby. Also, it prevents me from killing my customers.
You know why those bastards canceled Firefly, 'cause I sure as hell haven't figured it out.
You ever listened to American Pie and accidentally let slip a tear, or know every single word by heart.
You can deal with "OH MY GOD THAT'S MY FAVORITE _______ EVER" on a daily basis. Books, videos, music. They're all my favorite, depending on the day. I guess a lot of people find that annoying.
