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 like being happy.

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.

bob dylan wrote his first five star album when he was 18. i am a failure.

this is a little fact about me. how interesting!

I write and file TPS reports for a living.

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.

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

i often use the term baseball to disguise the topic of sex. it is also my default conversational piece when i want to change the current topic.

'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.
