I'm also quite terrible at self-summaries :)
I am a spontaneous ginger who likes to hit things with swords. I love me some learning and will jump at the chance to learn something new - after all, the world is a wide and wild place! I enjoy bothering my cat, digging in the dirt, and (occasionally) terrorizing small children with my rapier wit.
As an aside, I also belong to that strange and mysterious group known as the "Nerds/Geeks Who Also Like Sports". Tis rare to find a member of this society in public, but we get around making nerdy references to jocks and talking about our favorite sport to nerds/geeks.
What time period do you study, the intrepid reader might ask. Well, I do love medieval European archaeology - there's a lot to know about it and a lot of it. All over the place too. In particular, I'm interested in battlefield archaeology and osteoarchaeology. If you want to know more about either or simply want the definition of osteoarchaeology, I suggest you message me up. If you already know what both fields entail and want to chat about it, then may I refer you to the above :D
In the sweet embrace of my lord and deity, the winter, I work as a ski instructor at a little mountain in Vermont. I teach little kids how to ski and have fun while doing it!
Fave authors: Isaac Asimov, Neil Gaiman, David B. Coe, David Clement-Davies, Jim Butcher, Terry Prachett, etc. I have a loooooooot of books.
Fave movies: Apollo 13, Inception, Coraline, Disney movies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blazing Saddles, Princess Bride, Serenity, and many many more...
Fave shows: Star Trek (all of them, but DS9 is my least favorite), Stargate SG-1, Highlander, Doctor Who, Merlin, X-Files, Quantum Leap, Babylon 5, The Mentalist, Lie to me, Castle, Firefly, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, MacGyver, Warehouse 13, Tiger and Bunny, Journeyman, New Amsterdam, and Ultraviolet.
Fave music: Mostly classic rock, musicals/soundtracks, country, soft rock... I'm not even going to bother and list the artists, I like a lot of music.

Fave activities: Skiing, playing soccer, sailing, kayaking, snowboarding, driving, singing, people watching, going to car shows, longsword, embarrassing my cat
