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

my favorite popsicle color is green.

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.

i'm rather lazy. in fact, i tend to forget to finish things before i

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.

i do not like microsoft.

'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 pretend to be able to speak chinese. people who don't know chinese believe me. people who do know chinese are generally too polite to tell anyone otherwise.

i am truly fascinated by trains. i think they are beautiful and magnificent. the fact that steam can power thousands of tons of steel blows my mind. if i had my way, i'd travel by train for the rest of my life.

I write and file TPS reports for a living.
