I have the honor to be your obedient servant. ~ A. Ham (Translation: Fuck You, Burr)

I have an inappropriate love of coffee, cigarettes and artful vulgarity.

I was a philosophy major at a time when that was the default degree for those with a predilection towards cynicism, contrarianism and a general state of ennui.  Back when we all wanted to be Troy Dyer; sitting back, smoking our Camel Straights and riding our own melts.

My most relevant philosophical theory is that the guttural, unpolished sound of 80's punk in juxtaposition to its myriad and seemingly incongruous themes resonates a deep-seated cultural need to scream into Nietzsche's abyss; one last act of desperation as the self-aware, semi-self-actualized dig their nails into the last millimeter of rock and dirt, hanging onto to the cliff's edge before the inevitable plunge into nihilism.  Fuck Uncle Walt, Joe McCarthy and Ronnie Reagan in particular.  *Drops Mic*

I have a Yellow Lab that chases leaves on the wind and expects them to chase him back; he has taught me more about life than I've ever taught him.  I know all my local Starbucks baristas by name and they've named my invariable order after me.

I'm aware that I'm not everyone's "cup of tea" but I'm a coffee guy anyway... Translation: You don't have to like me but don't expect me to care.

This may be the most honest accounting of myself that I've ever written.

What I'm doing with my life

I work in IT security, infrastructure, implementation and maintenance.  Due to the nature of the industry it's hard to fight the feeling of being a lone firefighter in a gunpowder factory staffed with coked-up Capuchin monkeys.

I took a summer vacation this past summer.  I miss my self-imposed sabbatical; sleeping in, waking up to an empty-ish calendar, traveling, and seeing the eerily quiet suburban world that exists during banker's hours.  It was my my Desperate Housewives moment.
