I have come back to Winona after getting out of the Army. I have finished my degree. I am currently employed in Winona, and just moved into an apartment all on my own. Weeeeeee real adulthood!
I'm a giant nerd. I will not even attempt to hide it, or otherwise conceal it. I cannot actually do so, I just exude nerdiness to an amazing extent. I seriously cannot un-nerd a conversation. It is not possible. I just nerd it all up. How nerdy? I know when the guys on Big Bang Theory aren't being all that nerdy. They are nerdlite, pop-culture style nerds. Minor nerdlings. Seriously, not that nerdy.
Politically, I'm definitely left of center. Laws are for the protection of society, and that includes the poor--especially the poor, since they need it far more than the rich. If the rich need to be taxed a bit more heavily to help the poor, so be it. This country has severely skewed incomes. I think health care should be treated as a public good, rather than an industry.
Anything else? Well, if you want to know, ask.
Right now, the Dresden Files books. Finished Ghost Stories on release day and it didn't arrive until 6pm, so that should tell you about how fast I read, and how dedicated I am to various things while reading. I'm behind on other stuff, and I'm catching up somewhat right now.
I also really enjoy pretty much everything by Ursula K LeGuinn, especially the Dispossessed. Heinlein is also a favorite of mine. I always am looking for good sci-fi/fantasy.
Gladiator, Star Wars (if I need to tell you which ones, you are possibly too young), Godfather 1 and 2, and some other stuff. Disney movies, Harry Potter. Robert Downey, JR as Ironman.
I feel like I'm becoming an old man, but 95% of what I see in previews looks like poop, so I don't see too many movies in the theater any more.
Arrested Development, The IT Crowd, Fawlty Towers, and a bunch of other stuff.
