by may 12, 2008, I will accomplish these 101 things. Check back from time to time. I'll update.

I go to concerts and various other fun things in Houston. Here's a list of some of them. It'll change as I add more venues and stuff.

--I have a Texas accent. yeah, a lot. see this entry and click on the link for proof.
--my LJ usernumber backwards spells "permit" on a phone.
--I've lived in the same house(with the exception of my four five six years at college...) all my life. Since mid-2006 I've lived in Houston. woo. In June 2008 we moved near my hometown. I'm loving everything about it.
--my dad and granddad are also from my hometown.
--I'm the most redneck, Texan person a bunch of my friends know. but in that good, non-backwoods-ignorant-bumpkin kinda way. More in that "no-really-my-neck-looks-red" kinda way. Well, and the whole "i like being outside and I can do country-type stuff if i get the chance" thing.
--I carry a pocketknife almost all the time. not at church, but... most of the rest of the time.
--I have a dog, that we got like...15 years ago. he's awesome, if not a little dumb sometimes.
--every baseball cap i own has a bottlecap attached to it.
--I speak German.
--i like crappy movies.
--to my credit, I like good movies, too.
--I like to drive (to waste time, to think, to unwind after a bad day...).
--I like to listen to music (while I drive).
--I drive a mustang; not a truck like everyone figures i should.
--dr. pepper is awesome. but it seems northerners don't like it. I don't understand...
--I met a huge number of people while I was at college, and I remember almost all of their names. And I run into them all randomly all over the state. WEIRD. (my people, they love me...)
--my eyes are green.
--I am (hopefully) a friend to many.
--I am (hopefully) an enemy to few.
--I am a music lover.
--I am a Texan.
--I am a Texas Aggie (whoop)
--I know how to cut down trees, and enjoy it. With an axe. none of that "chainsaw" crap.
--I love to be moving (around. I like my stuff to stay in one place.)
--I love to be at the ocean
--I LOVE full moons. especially over water, or at our pasture. You can check phases of the moon for a given date here.
--I want to fall in love again.edit: I have. It's awesome.
--I want to be successful enough to do what I want. no more, no less.
--I want to be what my friends and family need.
--I like the fact that random chance plays a tiny role in everything.
--I believe that things work out for the best, eventually.
--I think people should play fair.
--I like doing things the right way, not just the easy one.
--I like being, and want to be a useful member of society.
--I like being outside.
--I want having an occupation that allows a feeling of accomplishment, not just "keeping up".
--I love to talk on the phone about nothing for hours with a good friend.
-- My nickname is Gimli since I'm stumpy and have red hair and a beard, and I cut things with an axe. Hah...
