Directly copied from ok Cupid account, because I don't feel like writing again
Is this the part where I write about how sophisticated, and worldly I am? Yes? Ok, here goes. I'm an avid lover of learning – anything really, but right now it's computers, programming, and design – which makes me cool...well, in my mind's eye.
More specifically I am making a resolution to read more. Anything really. Just more sh*tI wouldn't normally have read. This is in an effort to embiggen my knowledge base, and have actual cool sh*tto talk about. Mostly so I don't go on a date, and ask "Gee, how about this weather?", or a more regionally based conversation of "Wow, Tom Brady sure is a gigantic cheater, and a **** wad, don't you think?" I kid people, I realize this might offend some of you die hards out there.
So, my point is, any book suggestions are welcome...unless it's Ayn Rand. I wish I could bend space time, jump into the endless abyss – great movie, by the way – go back 9 years, punch myself in the face, and force myself to stop reading Atlas Shrugged.
Oh, and embiggen is a perfectly cromulent word. Just ask our almighty overlord, Google, or Ask Jeeves, if that's your bag
