i love my iPhone. if i feel sad, i hold it in my arms and i feel better.

'tis i, THE lowly peon! i am a computer geek for a ginormous manufacturing company based in houston. houston is surely not my favorite place on earth, but the company is soon sending me to china! i am very excited about this. i like apple computers, and i like web development. i like good music. if you're curious about specifics, just know that no one has better musical taste than i, unless, of course, it is identical. i'm a big sap for cheeesy love songs. i also like good movies. people tend to disagree with me about what movies are good. i'm also a sucker for sappy love movies. i have an idea of my "best self" (to use ethan hawke's words in before sunset), and sadly, nearly every aspect of that "best self" conflicts with every other aspect. thus, my mind tends to be all over the place. i like to think i'm a jack of all trades, and i'm surely a master of none. and just remember: the sun's not yellow; it's chicken.

i like cycling. i do it as often as i can. now that i'm in china, i rarely do. so try not to rub it in. i miss my bikes.

i do not like nuts or other chunks in my brownies, and kindly ask that you never offer them to me. the same goes for jello, fudge, most ice cream, and other things that should be soft.

if you ever want me to get angry, use the words 'i' and 'me' improperly. example: "he told john and i..."
comma misuse, really bothers me too.

i would not be upset if google won the net presidential election and eventually took over the world.

my iphone is currently running 4.2!

a wise man once told me not to trust anyone with well manicured facial hair. i am twenty-four, and this has proved to be very among the wiser things anyone has ever told me.

i don't eat meat. but i eat fish. and dairy. so to say i'm a half-assed vegetarian would be an understatement. but i often do just to avoid the whole explanation.

my favorite fictional vampire, spike, described love as follows: "you'll never be friends. you'll fight and you'll shag and you'll love each other 'til it kills you. love isn't brains, children, it's blood. blood screaming inside you to work its will. and i may be love's female dog*, but at least i'm man enough to admit it." right on, spike.
