About Optimistic Fool
Here is a picture of me with my nephew. (I'm the one on the left.) ;-)

What can I say about myself? For those superficial enough to care, I'm 6'1" with blonde hair and blue eyes. I'm the second born of four boys and a girl.

Things I like
Chinese food, Japanese food, Italian food, and fast food.
Light rock, classical, Christmas, religious, country, jazz, and (a little) alternative music.
Talking with friends.
Things I do not like
Hard rock, heavy metal, rap, and PC speaker music.
Things that make me laugh
