I was having a hard time writing a post introducing myself. I don't know why it's so hard. Then I realized that I had already done that, when I had to post an introduction on an lDS singles site. So, I decided to cheat and copy it here. The profile only allows 2500 characters, so that's why the numbers references. Enjoy!

2500 characters is a lot, but my goal today is to use all 2500 of them, and to finish this thing using only complete sentences.

So, I guess you want to know some things about me. To begin with, I'm a substitute teacher. I love my job, but the pay is terrible. So, I'm looking for a new day job. I also work evenings down at the Delta Center. You know, the basketball arena where the Jazz play? I have to clear that up for people, because when I tell people where I work, they sometimes ask me who much a flight costs to Los Angeles or why we don?t serve peanuts anymore. One time, some of my coworkers and I went to dinner before an event. The waitress just couldn't get the fact that we were not airline employees, so I eventually told her that a flight to Orlando cost $149.

In the small amount of time that you could call "free time," I like to read, watch movies, and write things. I have three blogs. I even occasionally write bad poetry. I make a point not to share the bad poetry on a first date. But, if that first date goes well enough, I'll maybe share some on date number two. I also enjoy taking pictures of things and making videos.

Oh, and a prerequisite of working at the Delta Center is that you have to be a sports fan. And I like to laugh. I also have this knack for rambling off random trivia. I'm a good person to have on your team if we're playing Trivial Pursuit.

Many people ask me what I look for in a girl. Other than engaging eyes, not much. Most guys have a "type" but I do not.

However, I do know what I do not want. If you are not someone who can take a joke, or dish out a good joke, stop now. Go on to the next guy. Trust me; you will be saving yourself some time. Also, if your profile is in all caps, move on, because I really hate it when people start YELLING AT ME. (Deep breaths, baby steps through the profile?.OK, I'm fine now.)

Including spaces, I'm at 1989 characters as of the end of this paragraph. Only 511 characters to go.

However, I have run out of things to say. So, drop me a line, ask me a question, and I'll get back to you.

OK, so there it is. The things I left out were that I'm 26, adn the locations of my three blogs. You are reading one of them (I hope you figured that out already), and my other two are The World, According to Me, which is all about politics, and Bob on Sports, all about, well, sports.

Oh, and if you want to contact me, it's bobiscookiemonster AT yahoo DOT com.
