Native Austinite aka unicorn, AMA
I'm pro nerd-culture and I appreciate anyone who is a rabid fan of something, no matter what it is. Obscure fandoms fascinate me, so get at me if you're the world's biggest Teen Wolf fan or something.
I've gotten better lately about cutting down on pop culture references (my references are out of control, everyone knows that)
I enjoy fancy beers and though my favorites change daily, but I'll try anything once and suggestions are always welcome. Believe me though, I'm perfectly happy with a Lonestar or Tecate in my hand. Also bourbon, lots of bourbon.
My favorite activity is restaurant roulette, I make it a point of trying new food or a new restaurant as often as possible and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I want to be Andrew Zimmern one day (minus the crippling drug addiction and homelessness) and I'll put literally anything edible in my mouth.
I'm a big believer in intelligent design, and by that I mean I love IKEA.
or is it the other way around?
When I'm feeling geeky I'll bust out The Silmarillion, or something from any sci-fi Golden Age authors (Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke) or more modern ones like Philip K, Dick, Atwood, Le Guin etc.

what the world would be like if it was possible and even fashionable for women to grow full and lush handlebar mustaches
whether there exists a karaoke place that would let me do all 22 chapters of r. kelly's trapped in the closet
Depends on the friends I'm with, but I frequent draught house and the east side. If it's up to me, Side Bar -> Barbarella or a master pancake show.
Once I came home drunk and made jorts with my elementary school safety scissors.
You read all that shit I wrote up there and want to say something more than, "hay gr8 profile wanna chat?" - also keep in mind I get a ton of messages that open with that jokingly
