My self-summary
New home and dog owner, seeking interior decorator/dog sitter

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Got a CS degree at UT, now a developer and hating/loving it
I’m really good at
Singing, though maybe not a style you'd be interested in hearing. For whatever reason it's super hard to get me to sing on command though, but put on some disney tunes though and just try to stop me
The first things people usually notice about me
headstrong and cocksure

or is it the other way around?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Been reading a lot of pop biographies lately, and I recently finished American on Purpose and Bossypants (Tina Fey's book and absolutely hilarious). Currently in the midst of ASOIAF, message me if you want to talk about R + L = J. My favorite book is and always will be Sideways Stories from Wayside School

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.

As far as food goes, if it won't physically harm me I will try it (see: scorpion shot). I couldn't live without seafood, and my absolute favorite restaurant is Justine's
Six things I could never do without
my mom
bacon and bacon flavored products
a good pair of headphones
the perfect bloody mary
I spend a lot of time thinking about

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
On a typical Friday night I am
maybe out, but if I'm in it's really not the end of the world.

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.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sing pop songs to cats with some of the lyrics replaced with kitty, fluffy, whiskers, precious, chubby, etc etc.

Once I came home drunk and made jorts with my elementary school safety scissors.
