Significant Other: Lisa

Random Fact: I’m all talk…

Secret Super Power: Psychic Amnesia (Mementodamus). This superuseless superhero foresees the future while instantly forgetting anything he has just foreseen. Known in some circles as Untotal Recall. (Thank you, Superuseless Superpowers blog.)

Favorite Bad Bar Song: Baby Got Back. Dur.

Best Weetacon Memory: The look on the bartender’s face when I asked if I could just go shirtless in the bar.

I’m usually the one who…: …gets into creep Jesus-y conversations and no one bails me out

Funniest Weetacon Incident: Abandoning my bar buddy immediately after she stepped in to protect me and then got trapped

Weetathlon Awards: Most Valuable In The Event Of Zombie Apocolypse

Known for at Weetacon: Drinking half of the bottle of bourbon I won in the raffle before leaving the raffle (I was drowning my sorrows from not winning the Unicorn-defiling-a-cupcake painting OR the bacon gift basket!)

Attending: Weetacon VI and Weetacon VII, Weetacon VIII, Weetacon IX

Reason I’m attending Weetacon: I’ve loved everyone Wendy has introduced me to, so I’m trying to find some I don’t like. I’m just increasing my odds.

Thing I’m most nervous about: In life: people cutting my hair in my sleep.
At Weetacon:  touching any surface at the Bad Bar

My impressions of Weetacon are: It appears to be a good time to the unsuspecting observer, however it could all be staged fun, like the concentration camp videos that show people playing soccer and eating in cafeterias filled with food (no offense, Jen. I just saw The Boy in the Striped Pajamas). I still haven’t actually witnessed blindfolded connect four, either. Arguably the best event I attended in 2010, but only because I enjoy arguing.

When we meet, ask me about: Yanni, Cinque Terre, CGI-rage, Machete, why my father can’t look me in the eye after every Halloween, and the phylogeny of the lycosoid spider.
