I'm facially expressive and gesticulate quite a lot. If I'm not, that means that I'm either bored or hiding my emotions. I have absolutely no idea where my feet end, so I tend to step on peoples' feet and kick random object unintentionally. Apologies.
I'm quite calm and don't get angry easily, unless the person I'm talking to is : homophobic, racist, judgmental and/or in general close-minded. All these are subjects we CAN talk about, if you're willing to accept a different point of view. I am glad to hear different points-of-view on everything, just accept mine as I accept yours.
Conversely, I get really excited about things I care about, and yes - it's perfectly okay to tell me to STFU. Rationally, I know no one really wants to hear about the perks of the triple-option, but I cannot contain myself :)
I rant, ramble and digress, though I can return to most points in a conversation.
I love to find out how stuff works, so I'll take apart any old electrical appliance and try and find out a way to recycle at least some of the parts. It's like legos for adults.
Also, I'm always wondering how people work, mentally and physically. I don't take them apart, though. It's against the law and stains the carpet.
I'm somewhat geeky, technology-oriented, but manage to remain old fashioned and analog - no eReader can smell like an old book, no PC will ever feel like a typewriter.
I love sports, especially football. The real kind of football, with helmets, an egg-shaped ball and hard hitting, not the one where players spend 90% of the match focused on finding new ways to trick the referee while worrying about their hair.
