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 like to consider myself a jack of all trades, and in my years i've learned well that i'm a master of none.
this is a little fact about me. how interesting!
i am a chicagoan, born and raised, and i'm very proud to say such. although i have much german, irish and english blood, i consider myself to be primarily of belgian descent. and i am exceptionally proud of this.
'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.
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.
i don't particularly like cars. i really don't like cities that require the use of them.
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.
for some reason, i really like being near huge bodies of water. i'm really not sure why, but i feel much more comfortable if there's a lake or a river nearby, even if it's a half a mile away
i play guitar. i could not bring my guitar to china, but i hope to find one while i'm here. playing my guitar makes me happy.
