Random miscellaneous tidbits about yours truely:

-- I'm an eclectic mix of interests and ideas not easily pinned down or discreetly quantified, though I'm sure there is some sufficiently large prime out there that, when compiled and executed, will spit out a consciousness sufficiently similar to my own.

-- Incase you haven't figured it out by now, I have a very over-inflated sense of self-importance. I basically come on here to vent, rant, piss people off, engage in intellectual masturbation, and make myself seem a whole lot more intelligent and superior to my "fellow" homo-sapiens than what I really am. In other words, if you take what you read here seriously and WITHOUT a grain of salt, then you probably just provided justification for my placement of "fellow" in quotation marks.

I'm 32 going on 17, and that's the way I like it.

-- In my adult life, I've worked as an art educator and then as a professional chemist in industrial research and development. Chemistry wasn't all that it was cracked up to be, so when my job got shipped across the pond to be done by a 12 year old being paid ten cents a week, I headed off to nursing school. In May 2011, I graduated and received my RN license from the state board of nursing. Currently pounding the pavement looking for employment in critical care (i.e. sicu, micu, ed, etc). Finishing up some more courses over the summer in the meantime for a second degree in physics.

-- I am a mixed bag politically, but tend to lean right/libertarian on most issues, especially in matters of constitutional interpretation. I am an originalist in the vein of Antonin Scalia, and few things piss me off more than judicial activism. If I went to law school, I would join the Federalist Society.

-- While I try to be open minded, I also firmly subscribe to the notion that it is possible to be so open minded that your brains fall out.

-- Love Dawg sports. I bleed Red and Black.

-- I don't talk much about my personal life and, because of the fact that I'm about to enter a profession that requires me to be a decent, morally upstanding member of the community and because of the fact that decent and morally upstanding are culturally relative terms and because of the fact that I live in the middle of the Bible Belt where those culturally relative terms are defined largely in terms of the Judeo-Christian tradition as interpreted by the Southern Baptist Convention, I have determined that it is in my best interests to keep the nature of this journal clandestine.

-- I have been known to write run-on sentences from time to time.

-- I expand to 10 times my normal size when placed in water.

-- We probably won't get along.
