My personality contrasts a bit with the rather mechanical description above. I am goofy as shit. Completely random things amuse me to no end. My proudest moment typically involve divinely inspired Campbell-eqsue one liners after eons of silence. My greatest embarrassments are when I try to invoke such things.
I love food and cooking. Total foodie. I've been known to break down recipes at good restaurants from taste and attempt to recreate them later. My mother's family is Italian, so shared meals are one of my highest values. I take great pride in my cooking.
I am only ashamed of my failures. Never of my actions.
Be forewarned, I am an engineer. We are generally show symptoms of low level Asperger Syndrome and are confused by some things most people understand innately.
