I write fantasy and science fiction and spend far too much time roleplaying. When I venture outside, I tend to enjoy hiking and gardening and generally running amuck. Someday, I hope to hike the Appalachian Trail. I'm rather sardonic and have the bad habit of playing Devil's advocate no matter what's being discussed. If I really like someone I'll argue with him, because I know he can take it.
I've found that having different views from someone doesn't really get in the way of friendship. Having similar goals and compatible lifestyles seems to matter so much more. I guess I'd call myself a social liberal, though I might sometimes argue from a conservative point of view just to mess with people's heads. I probably have more in common with a sort of...friendly anarchy than either major political party in the US.
I am silly, brilliant, and sadistic
