I figure any random individuals who happen to wander to this blog as opposed to any of the other million-and-one out there may want to know something about the author. For those of you I dont get to see as much as I would like, or havent seen in years, consider this the "Cliff's Notes"
1 - I am indeed 30, and I am indeed in College.
2 - I have been signed to a major record label (Universal Records, may you burn in hell).
3 - The aforementioned signing to a major is precisely why I am back in college.
4 - I have been a music ed major, a computer science major, a media arts audio major, and am currently graphic design.
5 - I get much better grades now that I am older.
6 - I am deathly afraid of spiders, but I will stop my truck to move a snake out of the road.
7 - Speaking of my truck, the total worth of my fishing gear happens to be greater than its worth.
8 - I consistently catch catfish bigger than most 5 year olds.
9 - I do not consistently catch anything in saltwater.
10 - I am equally comfortable running my yap in a tackle shop, hanging out at Dragon Con, running ProTools in a studio, or laying down pwnage at a LAN party.
11 - Normality, Complacency, and Settling scare the fuck out of me.
12 - I'm a computer geek. I even bought a dremel just to mod my case. Yes, it does have lights on the inside just to look cool.
13 - My computer can kick your computers ass.
14 - My best friend has 4 legs and is named Nemo.
15 - Even though Jen likes to think so, he is not named after a cute little clownfish. I named him for the captain of the Nautilus in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
16 - I have a tendency to worry too much about what other people may think of me.
17 - I firmly believe Charles Schultz and Theodore Geisel are some of the greatest philosophers the world has ever seen.
18 - I am more likely to cry at the end of a kids movie or anime than I am at any other genre.
19 - I am a part-time Alzheimer's caregiver.
20 - Alzheimer's and its effect on my family furthered my dislike of the Bush administration for limiting stem cell research. Let him come take care of my grandmother for a week.
21 - Do not mistake my dislike of Bush for being a Democrat. If I had to vote on a party line, it would be the eternally flawed Libertarian. I vote on the issues.
22 - Cookie cutter people offend me on a level I cannot begin to describe.
23 - I am a musical snob.
24 - OK, so I'm a literary snob too.
25 - I am coming to the end of the worst fishing season ever. I'm also considering writing a book of the same title.
26 - I am addicted to the computer game Dark Age of Camelot.
27 - I feel I have lived more in 30 years than most people ever will.
28 - Life is easy. Living is hard.
29 - I have been called a walking dictionary. Its actually just a defense mechanism.
30 - I am terribly uncomfortable around children. I'm afraid I'll screw something up and break them.
31 - I have never been overseas, but that will be remedied in the spring for a friends wedding in Denmark.
32 - My stepfather has been more of a father to me than my biological father ever will.
33 - I'm not happy with my weight, but I cannot for the life of me force myself to do anything about it.
34 - Very few people that have come through my life will ever be considered more than an acquaintance...those of you that are truly my friends, thank you.
35 - I have been an alcoholic.
36 - There is nothing in the world like walking onstage to people yelling your name or your song titles. NOTHING.
37 - Being tall is an asset...people see me as more of a threat than I could ever conceivably be.
38 - I have been with my better half for 12 years. No I'm not married. But I will be sooner as opposed to later. She rocks for putting up with me this long and being there when it all fell apart.
39 - I am not terribly good at writing when I am happy/content. Maybe this blog will fix that.
40 - My most valued possessions in the world are my memories.
41 - Do or do not. There is no try.
42 - I carry around a suitcase of unspoken mind.
43 - 50 things about myself is harder than I thought it would be.
44 - Sometimes I sits and thinks. Other times I just sits.
45 - I probably own more toys than most kids. Have fun with that psychologists.
46 - I have 4 siblings. I wouldnt trade them for anything, even when I want to kill them. I'd hate for someone else to have the satisfaction.
47 - I'm terrible at staying in touch with people.
48 - I think too much.
49 - I tend toward situational ethics, and I really, really, dont like that about myself.
50 - I'm now done with this list. I'm going to bed.
