Random things about me:
I'm a smartass. Just thought I should get that out of the way so you couldn't say I didn't warn you. So if there's two ways to interpret something I say, and one of them is sarcastic, that's probably exactly how I meant it. If one way is bit(c)hy, then I meant it the other way. It makes me sad that sarcasm translates so poorly in print, but I'm working on it.
My hair is actually strawberry blonde (not one of the choices) so lighter than when the main picture was taken. The color in the third pic is pretty close.
The three pictures I have up correspond to forum threads about three types of pictures people hate. I thought that was amusing, but like I said, I'm a smartass.
I have a job that's kinda hard to explain, but in a nutshell I work with contractors and utility owners to balance damage prevention with safety. Previous career incarnations have included business development and administration for an engineering firm, commission sales (electronics), newspaper advertising, and sports marketing. What do these have in common? They're what you do with 3/4 of a university education in organizational sociology. Luckily (?) I also have a Business Admin diploma.
I know a little bit about a lot of things. They say knowledge is a dangerous thing, but I don't know enough to make me dangerous, just enough to make me annoying to watch Jeopardy with.
I'm allergic to flowers. Very very allergic. Unless they're fake.
I like to think that I'm a pretty decent photographer for someone with no training or fancy equipment(form your own opinion if you want, msn spaces same screen name). Or maybe I just have good judgement when it comes to buying cameras that can make any talentless fool produce decent pictures.
I don't have a car or have any immediate plans to get one, but that doesn't mean I'm a eco-extremist. It just means I live in a city with decent transit service and high gas and insurance costs. No worries, I'm not looking for someone to drive me around; I have Yellow Cab on speed dial if necessary.
Yes, I smoke. Yes, I know it's gross and unhealthy. I've heard every lecture out there at least once, so please don't assume that one more will make all the difference. I'll quit when I'm ready (I'm getting there).
The only reason I answered "Socially" to drinking is because "Rarely" wasn't an option, and I felt dishonest about "Never". Never say never, but alcohol and I don't get along as well as we did when I was young and foolish.
If you email me and all it says is "hi, how are you" and your profile doesn't say anything about you, you will not be the first person I email back. You have to give me SOMETHING to work with. Sound fair? And yeah, I did bury this at the bottom so I'll be able to tell if you read this far. I'm sneaky that way.
Hmmm....and in case you couldn't tell...I talk a lot. Sometimes I even make sense. LOL
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
As long as I don't accidentally fall down a hill like I did on a previous first date, it's all good. Apparently I have trouble walking and talking at the same time. Who knew?
