I like going out to restaurants, diners and pubs with friends. I kind of want to go to every place on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. I like good conversation that is mentally stimulating but fun at the same time, if that makes sense. Sort of witty intellectual banter back and forth. That's not to say I don't like stupid fun conversation as well. I'm a huge fan of "that's what she said" jokes. So if you hate them or can't stand them, you might as well just stop reading right now. It will never work out. :)
I'm a big fan of listening to people and what they have to say. I like to find out what makes a person tick - what makes them "them" and unique. I try not to be judgmental and accepting of everyone but sometime's it's fun to gossip. People watching is fun too. I like to just watch people and make up interesting back-stories about them in my head for my own amusement. This is really fun with a partner, so if you know what I'm talking about contact me!
I'm a big fan of live music and enjoy going to shows. Dead music is alright too but if just lacks ummm a beat. I'm a big movie buff so I hope you like going to the movies and staying in on the couch sometime s.
In the summer I like to toss the frisbee around with friend and going to the beach. I love that salt air and that feeling of endlessness while looking at the ocean. Walks on the boardwalk in Long Beach at night is a big favorite of mine. I recently got back into mountain biking and cycling so those are some fun things to do. Oh, I like to do road trips too. Even short ones.
Music wise I like indie rock but anything that is catchy and has a good beat is good to me. Ke$ha is my guilty pleasure. If you can't deal with that, we can't be friends. I mean who else am I going to be belt out a terribly off-key rendition of Blah Blah Blah in the car with.
I also love the history and discovery channels and the office too.
Finally, in closing I would just like you to know that my favorite smell is fresh laundry from the dryer (Random, right?)
I am Geeky, Hilarious, and did I say Awesome
But really... I work in the IT field. I'm a Systems Administrator for a university in Nassau county. For the uninitiated, that means I'm a pretty big geek who plays with the big computers that run the college. It's fun and I am pretty happy with my career and where it's going.
I'm also in the process of finishing my bachelor's in Computer Science (like I said - geek). I think I have about 3 classes left and hope to be done in Spring 2011.
