I have a crush
I have an exceptionally wide array of interests. I love to discuss everything from Shakespeare to quantum physics, from 'Scooby Doo' to architecture, from drinking games to theology. Maybe I should just list things I am into... that could work. OK, the ones I already named plus politics (I'm a moderate-to-liberal independent and a fiscal conservative - and boy, are those rare anymore), horseracing, lingerie, mythology, jurisprudence, 'The Rockford Files' (James Garner is the man), mixed drinks, Christianity, psychology, cartoons, ghosts, quality music... and not-so quality music, firefighting, cancer survivors, genetic engineering, sex, mashed potatoes (shout out for that to "Lauren"), economics, Lemondheads candy, the American Revolution, pets, New Orleans, hot sauce, admiralty, relationships, Robert B. Parker novels, Novas, Famke Janssen, aircraft and flight (want my pilot's license one day), Cincinnati, prayer, pumpkin pie, excellent documentaries, ancient civilizations, Comedy Central shows, classic literature, Duke University, hot tubs, processed meats and cheeses, poker, Miami, Wile E. Coyote, 'Fable', Ohio history, sociology, slot machines, Shawnee Smith (when you are dating someone that looks like her hotter sister, that just makes the world seem so much nicer - I wanted to write "tagging" but thought "dating" sounded classier), suits, quoting tv shows and movies and song lyrics and literature (the more random the better), Big Red pop, unique shirts, Dave & Buster's, the 'Final Fantasy' series (especially FF VII), doing Four Horsemen shots, cuddling, Simpsons figures, languages, starry nights, 'Animal Crossing', inventions and inventing, kickball, goggles, bonfires, grammar, amusement parks, space heaters, chili, exotic dance, learning HTML, Charisma Carpenter, parapsychology, corn dogs, Marshie the Marshmallow, coins that look cool (even if not worth much), demographics, Blue Dawgs (best drink...

OK, so not really, but still a damn good feeling), the Gallop Racer series, Wayne Manor, Reuben sandwiches, batting cages, Jigglypuff, any 'Civilization' game, Taco Bell (even when I haven't been drinking), collecting more jackets and coats than I need, Jessica Simpson, antipasto salad, vinyl, 'The West Wing', following the adventures of Hack Barnstormer, Trik Nasty, Arrowhead, Ghost, and all of their superhero compadres, movie theater popcorn swimming in that fake butter stuff found only at the movies, Voo Doo, cheesecake, neuro-science, the 'Suikoden' series, dope-looking ties, my James Bond-esque cars (my Mazda and Shell's Nissan), beer (cheap is great, but lately I have been really into Harp beer, urban legends, being a "man of fashion", time travel, my kickass parents, working out at the Y, eating at 'the Y', my dope Toshiba laptop, Napster, any video game that lets you create your own characters and design how they look, soups, saying the words "populace" and "ampersand", On Demand TV, this hat, camping (but I don't use a tent - I throw a sleeping bag down on the ground and sleep in the open air), rum, webcam, monkeys, fez hats, monkeys in fez hats, Skee-Ball, antiques, Stacy Keibler (she is a wrestling chick and I don't watch wrestling, unless it is my boy, Trik Nasty, but she used to be called Miss Hancock... and she is smoking hot), cashews, Cuban sandwiches, slang, masturbation, milk, Teen Girl Squad, legal research, steaks, carving jack-o-lanterns, exposing UNC as the work of The Devil, crab legs, admiring Big Boy, chai tea, Cletus and much, much, much, much, much more... Oh yeah, I can't forget these interests too... >.
I guess they are all the same interest though.

Jesus - whether you believe in Him or not, He had some great ideas... forgiveness, love, treat others like you would want to be treated, non-violence, and He was willing to die for a cause. Gotta respect all of those things. My mom - she has been through so much in her life and she never quits and she always has a kind word or a good deed ready to go... plus she kicked breast cancer's ass back in the day when that meant a quick death. My dad - he hasn't always been the easiest guy to get along with, but he knows what he believes in and he never forgets who he loves, and he would do anything to take care of those people and beliefs. He was a firefighter too, so that adds to the heroic nature. Some others I look up to are Tecumseh, Rosa Parks, and the original John Hancock. Oh, and Secretariat. So what he is a horse? I relate to him. Sheri is my Myspace Hero. She taught me how to do all this tricked-out HTML stuff on here and, more importantly, she taught me to never stop chasing my Myspace dreams (and now Dane Cook is among my Myspace friends). Shanah begat Sheri's HTML skills and Sheri begat mine, so (as Shanah pointed out) Shanah is one of my Myspace Heroes too. Big Boy has always been my hero... but that dude is everybody's hero, duh. Plus, Jack Monroe (if any woman knows who he is - I already love you).
Above see a picture of 4 of my heroes: Sheri, Big Boy, Shanah, and Jesus (Jesus is present in the "God is everywhere" kind of way).
