Me: I am a conundrum, stuffed into a contradiction that has been battered in awesomeness, deep fried...and wrapped in bacon. I'm nothing you ever wished for and everything you never needed. I often lack a filter and/or an inner monologue (which when mixed with brutal honesty and/or sarcasm has oft led to some humerous/embarrassing/wtf moments.) Insofar as the "big picture" stuff, I'd like to think I've got my shttogether. I consider myself to be situationally aware. I have a career, love my work, and earn a decent-enough living to do what I want, when I want. I've kept a dog alive for 8 years, Physically, I'm holding it together pretty well for a guy on the shy-side of 40. I can conjugate my verbs, know the oh-so subtle differences between their, there, and they're, and once had a brief layover in Conjunction Junction, where my baggage got lost in transit. I am the last, and only living member of my bloodline. I was once deemed "non-measurable" on a Myers-Briggs test, and I'm perfectly okay with that. Both of my parents worked for NASA, and I somehow correlate that fact to my hidden disappointment that we haven't figured out space travel by now.
Rather than contemplate whether the glass is half-full or half-empty, I am happy, just knowing I have water at all. The glass? Simply a bonus.
Things I dig: My dog. People watching. Waxing philosophical. Sand between my toes. Bacon (extra crispy). An original thought. The morning's 1st cup of coffee. Evolution. Jeans and T-shirts. Flossing my teeth. The letter 'Q'. Songs that take me back. 24 hour taco shops. Random acts of kindness. The smell of fresh-cut grass. Orange(s) - the color and the fruit. Campfires. The Heisenberg Principle. Playing in the rain. Zombies. Requited smiles. Pictures drawn in crayon. The Sham-wow. Common sense. Spooning.
Stuff I'm not so wild about: Anything "Twilight". Spiders. The Kardashians. People riding Rascal scooters. Politics. Gossip. Reality TV. Rudeness. 'Butter Rum' Life-Savers. Insomnia. J-Lo in Fiat commercials (really?!?). Posting pictures of food on FaceBook. Bad drivers. Organized religion. Black jelly beans. Rims that spin. The cast of "Jersey Shore".
