Thanks for reading my blog. Both of you. I hope you find some points of humor or entertainment in them, and if you don't, well...email me some! I am always looking for more. By the way, my boss just told me that I'm not sharing enough information about myself. He wants a bio. So, in the interest of any of your curiosity and for a little more job security, here I go:
Hobbies: Radio. Although I am seeking another to supplement.
What I Do In My Free Time: WHAT?
Favorite Foods: Pretty much anything that doesn't make the kitchen stink after it's cooked.

Favorite Women: My two girls.
Favorite Men: My two boys.
Favorite TV shows: American Idol, Fringe, Burn Notice, Swamp People, Fox News, The NEW Two and a Half Men.

Ok, fellas, heads up! Here's the some FREE dating advice. Socially (Network) speaking of course...
SIX TIPS FOR MEN FROM WOMEN: HOW TO DATE ON FACEBOOK ...
Clean Up Your Photos: Clean up any incriminating photos (or at least hide them). Sure you may have been joking around with your friends when you were motorboating that college girl in a bikini, but you don't need to post a pic of it for all the world to see. I once had a friend of a friend try to ask me out on Facebook. He looked cute from his profile pic, but upon further examination, he was a perv. And keep the drunk pics outta there. They definitely are not going to endear you to a woman.
Clean Up Your Wall: Next, clean up your wall and be mindful of what you post. Save the bro banter for your friends. She doesn't want to hear about you getting wasted or picking up women anymore than you want to hear about the guy who hit on her last night.
Make Friends: It almost goes without saying that the more friends you have, the more possible dating prospects you'll find. So become Facebook friends with as many people as humanely possible. Dig up those old classmate and colleagues from former jobs. After you've gone through all the names you can think of, use Friend Finder to import your email address book. You can also join alumni groups to find more people.
Friends of Friends: Now that you've made friends with everyone you know from here to Zimbabwe, keep an eye on your news feed and see who your friends are posting photos of or are interacting with. Watch all the comments and likes that go back and forth. If someone catches your eye, leave a comment in response to hers, not just to your friend's original status update. Try to engage her in witty banter so she has a reason to comment back. You could also do the old-fashioned Facebook-creep thing and look at the profiles of your friends' friends, and then ask your friend for an introduction. Slightly stalkerish? Yes. But she never has to find out. If you handle it casually, no one will know any better. You could say something to your friend like, "Hey, I noticed your cute friend Amanda on your Facebook page. Do you think you could introduce us?" Simple, to the point and presented in a very non-creepy fashion.
Send Her a Friend Request: If you've successfully commented back and forth, she will now know who you are and will be likely to accept your friend request. One thing is for sure: Don't poke her. You'll just seem like a weirdo, as this isn't fourth grade. Now that you're friends, you can comment on her status updates and photos and IM her. If she seems open and friendly to your online advances, take it one step further and send her a message asking if she would like to go out sometime.
Keep Your Dignity: If she doesn't respond, let it go and don't go all creepy and stalk her profile. When I broke it off with bikini-commenter after one too many second chances, he kept leaving comments on my wall every time I updated my status. When I started seeing someone else and he put a post about me being an angel fallen from heaven, I knew it was time for him to go. Now he was being a creepster. I unfriended him immediately. Game over. (AskMen.com)
