Here’s what you need to know about me:
I teach sociology at Hardin-Simmons University. I have the greatest job.
I have the most beautiful and wonderful wife on the planet.
I have 3 kids whose antics make me so happy.
I like my students a lot. If you are one, I’m talking about you. (Except one of you. You know who you are).
I am a Christian, and I love talking to students about faith (or a lack of faith).
I watch too much TV.
I listen to way too many podcasts about news, politics, comedy, sports, and snacks.
I’ve never been in a fist fight. Ever.
I think everything that comes out of Tracy Morgan’s mouth is hilarious.
I think you should always defend people who are not present to defend themselves.
I love Taco Bell. Every year, I try to get my wife to take me to Taco Bell on my birthday. Every year I fail.
I have never played golf.
I like to cook. I’m not good. I didn’t say I was.
Big sports fan. Go Texans. Go Astros. Go Rockets. Go Longhorns.
I think Twitter is a wretched hive of scum and villainy, combining the worst things about the internet with the worst things about humanity. In an unrelated note, I kind of like Twitter.
Coke over Pepsi. Longhorns over Aggies. Dogs over cats. Seinfeld over Friends. PC over Mac, but iPhone over Droid.
I watch horror movies and action movies when my wife leaves town. Most recently, I watched “The Man with the Iron Fists.” It was awesome, in the way that really terrible things are also sort of awesome.
I want to teach a class called “The Sociology of Zombies.” This may never happen, but it is constantly rolling around in my head.
I hate coffee, and I’m tired of being judged for this. Don’t judge me, coffee people.
I’ve never been to Europe, and I have abolutely no problems with this fact.
When I was a kid, my favorite arcade game was called “Bad Dudes.” That is a real name of a real thing. Every time you beat one of the bosses, the character held up his fist and said, “I’m bad!” My brother and I beat it once, and it cost us about $10 each. Best $10 I ever spent.
