I am polyamorous. I am currently seeing DelaineGates and jaeclectic. This keeps me fairly busy, but I am always open for new friends with common interests.
I am thoughtful, introverted, and erudite.
I work for the federal government. I work and play with computers. I like reading and listening to interesting books. I've worked my way through the films of Akira Kurosawa (the 30 films he's directed; thank you, Criterion Collection), and am currently working my way through the Zatoichi films.
I've been helping out with BayCon, a literary science-fiction convention held Memorial Day weekend in Santa Clara. I may end up helping out with a couple other conventions in the area as well.
Understanding things. Things that take patterns, such as diagnosing and programming computer come pretty easily to me.
I've also been told I'm good at explaining complex things to people.
That I'm tall and hairy. Or my beard. Or my sense of humor, depending on the situation.
I've seen movies that were great on different levels from Finding Nemo to The Seven Samurai. I like most good stories whatever the genre, though I tend toward fantasy, sci-fi, and comedy. The Abyss was one of my top personal favorites for a long time.
My musical tastes range mostly through the rock spectrum. With a collection spanning a-ha through Warren Zevon (yes, I still sort my music by last name where appropriate), there's something in there for just about everyone. While I don't have the snobbery or encyclopedic knowledge of Rob Gordon (a character from another favorite movie), my musical knowledge does surprise most of my friends and I'm usually the one they come to when they want answers to obscure music trivia or help finding novelty songs. I also collect a lot of funny music and comedy of various sorts. "Weird Al" Yankovic and Tim Minchin are favorites there.
For food, I tend toward the basics. Various forms of beef and chicken, though I've been staying away from fast food lately. My all-time favorite restaurant was BD's Mongolian Barbeque in the LoDo area of Denver. Around 200 visits in 2 years, and I make it a point to go a time or two when I'm back there visiting friends.
Also how to write things that I'm experiencing or "what if" situations. And various songs floating through my head.
