'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 write and file TPS reports for a living.

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 like to consider myself a jack of all trades, and in my years i've learned well that i'm a master of none.

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 am a crumpler. i don't trust folders.

i think it's a shame that most americans really believe that the word "atheist" is synonymous with "evil". just because we don't believe in some mystical being doesn't mean we're bad people.
and religious freedom does not mean freedom between various forms of christianity.

i do not like microsoft.

i just purchased an iPhone 4. which means i will have a super new mobile device. even more super, perhaps, than the one i had before. and it's 32gb!

i genuinely think i'd be happier if i never had to use microsoft windows ever again.
