i've got one here (2003) and two there (2006 and 2011).
married once before (young and stupid - me, that is, not him). i must have gotten smarter because i'm still married to this one and i'm convinced he's the right one. apparently he thinks so too.
obviously. programmer, fact finder, painfully accurate, can't tell when you're joking, don't care about others' opinion. your typical nerd. i mean what i say and if i'm wrong i admit it - IF it's proven.
yes, i actually do require proof to change my mind on a fact. not opinions, those i'm on my own for. but when i do believe something, i end up acting on it.
yes it's true. i have no problem saying i'm a christian. just don't expect perfection. or religion. both of those things are not safe for the general public. it's about believing what He says, when He says it, and nothing else at all. don't ask me if i've committed any sins lately, i haven't been looking. Jesus said if you want to follow Him, you have to *deny* yourself, not clean up your act (Matthew 16:24). so i just accept His sacrifice and He does the rest. as if i could actually do something on my own that He'd be impressed with! He has no problem making Himself heard. it's not hard.
A cat owner
this isn't true - the cat owns me. that's by definition if you have one. my dd thinks it's her pet but we all know what's really happening here... kitty has moved in and taken over. all cats come with crowns and attitudes. that's why i can't stand to be without one!
call me crazy... i just thought i could do a better job than the average school system. but i am quick to add: there are LOTS of great public school teachers out there, my friend was one of them.
A peacemaker, not peacekeeper
i do not argue. though i have a quick temper i strive to keep it under control. nothing good ever comes of letting my temper do the driving. i'll discuss anything you like (be reasonable) but i may not agree. i'm ok with that if you are. not popular with legalists, but my friends are real people who make mistakes, so we're all okay there. let me know if you're perfect, it'll save us a lot of time. agree to disagree isn't popular but it does work.
A Matrix fan
seen all three but by FAR the best one is the first. i've watched it many times and (geeky, don't forget) love to look up tech details to see how close to actuality it might be. of course the writers may not realize what they got right or wrong, but since they attempted to make it believable they have to state what's already proven, and suggest one step more. that's what good science fiction does. and no, i don't believe in the religion.
A research fanatic
Encyclopedias, timelines, bookstores - oh my! get ready for lots of lists on this one. one day i might actually learn something.
