I'm not proud to admit it, but I have become one of those to do list people. I pack by lists. I plan my day by lists.

I get that some people just don't get it, but it is what works best for me.

Don't get me wrong I have nothing against the actor who plays him, but I'm not sure what they are trying to do with him.
It is the only forensic/crime show where playing trance/house/metal songs during the lab scenes actually makes sense.
