Let's see... I'm a 6'4", 200-lb, 31-year-old Canadian grad student in Philosophy. In other words: precious little money; lots and lots of books. I'm a horror-movie junkie, live alone, and have an overweight cat named Chicklet. (When I write it down like this, my life just doesn't seem so exciting.) I'm a grammar nazi, but I love people who use good words in day-to-day conversation.
I'm not religious, but I'm open-minded, spiritually-speaking. I have friends who are Catholics, friends who are Jewish, friends who are Wiccan, and a friend who's a Buddhist monk. I like to engage the religious in conversation about their beliefs.
I'm not athletic (as attempting to be such tends to land me in the hospital), but I can accurately throw a football 60+ yards, and on a good day, I can slam-dunk a basketball. I keep a baseball glove, ball, and bat, and a football, in my trunk, should the need arise. I own a bowling ball. When it comes to sports, I'd rather DO than WATCH -- and I would much rather watch a movie on TV than sports (except for given events in the Olympics).
Being a grad student, I tend to spend equal time (a) reading, and (b) avoiding reading. I like a good novel, but I tend to be obsessive once I start reading one, and neglect my work as a result. The VAST majority of my books are non-fiction, and I relish my bookshelf of reference books (I used to be an editor -- I own at least a dozen dictionaries -- British, American, and Canadian.)
I'm apolitical (or, at best, a political centrist), agnostic, and will soon have more letters after my name than in it.
