If I were a tree...shit. I forgot.
i am (i am often told) an intelligent, kind, sarcastic, honest, flaky, straightforward, open-minded person. i will treat you with respect, and i expect the same. i like finding beauty and truth anywhere i can, and in day-to-day life i find it most often in music. i want to be around people who will look me in the eye when they talk to me. i love sitting around with friends, listening to some good acoustic guitar. sometimes i'll join in with some really shitty guitar of my own (best of luck if you ever find yourself subjected to this). i love dancing and i don't care who's watching or if i'm the only person on the floor. sit and chat with me over tea/coffee about deep thoughts. or beer. i like to drink, but i overdo it if i'm not very careful.

i despise talking on the telephone. i love Taco Bell and hate the smell of money on my hands. i panic if i leave the house without chapstick, and i rarely go anywhere without my digital camera. i love irreverent humor. i see shapes in clouds, and when i feel stressed i like to look at the stars and contemplate the vastness of the universe. i smoke too much, like to go swimming at night, and always have a song running through my head. i skip when i'm excited. i derive great joy from simple things: the colors that abound in nature (i adore autumn), the feel of sand between my toes, the smell of freshly-mown grass, the sound of the breathing of someone that i am close to.

i like people with opinions, and i don't mind if their ideas differ from mine. if you are open-minded, i will adore you. i DO mind when people are mean, rude, snobbish, or two-faced. i tend to be quite crude and profane once you get to know me, but am always appropriate to the situation (i won't curse around your grandmother--at least not unless she curses around me first). i love dry humor. i'm not afraid of spiders. i am, however, terrified of ice cream trucks. i'm a non-linear thinker and i often go off on tangents. this sometimes annoys friends. for example, i was talking to a friend the other day and he said something like "so-and-so drinks like a fish." at the next pause in the conversation, he asked me what i thought, and i said, "do fish really drink?" he was kinda pissed that i had missed the point, and i ran off to google it (answer: they don't--it's more of an osmosis thing). i am also given to spending somewhat startling amounts of time contemplating things such as the etymology of the word "howdy". i overuse dashes, ellipses, and parentheticals when i write--though i believe this accurately mimics my speaking style. i tend to trail off and leap from though to thought...(please bear with me).

i love random facts, but never know the answers to the sports questions in trivial pursuit. i like juxtaposing very serious, deep thoughts with absurdity. i cringe when people tYpE lIkE tHiS. i'm not a fan of chat-speak such as "lol," "lmao," "rofsmdc," etc. i don't mind "brb," though. i like saying it aloud: brrrrrrrrrbbbbb. if you become my friend, it is inevitable that i will tease you (though never in a mean way). i'm a terrible liar--i don't even bother. i won't pretend to like you if i think you're an asshole. i have a Kentucky accent and i usually talk way too much. i find it nearly impossible to finish sentences when i get excited. i like shiny things. and things that sparkle. or, better yet, things that twinkle. if the rubik's cube that sits on my desk at work doesn't stop taunting me, it's going in the drawer. i mean it.

i tend to reveal too much about myself. i do not have a sensitive or delicate nature; it is nearly impossible to offend me. i enjoy using big words. not to make myself look smart, but because i can. i like my thesaurus, and if possible try to avoid using the same adjective over and over when describing one thing.

my pet peeves revolve largely around grammar. i do see the irony in that, because i don't even bother to capitalize web postings/ email communications. however, i feel that the informality of such communique makes that acceptable. don't even get me started on the sad state of the average person's grammar. sheesh.

this is a VERY serious question, and much weighs upon your answer: what comes before Part B?


i like most games that can be played on boards. it's hard to go wrong with games like Cranuim, Trivial Pursuit and Pictionary.

i'm not terribly uncoordinated--i CAN play softball and the like, but i just...don't much anymore.

...unless you count Zumba as a game. i do love Zumba.
