I am funny. I am intense. I have strong opinions about most things. I love the ocean. I do martial arts. I make decisions quickly. I am logical. I love languages. I'm curious about everything. I like books and games. I love to laugh. Make me laugh and we'll get along great. I love to think. Engage me in some kind of meaningful conversation and we'll get along better. I love to learn. Teach me something new, and we'll get along even better-er.
I am a gamer. I play games, I write games, I even work in the gaming industry. My first love is tabletop RPGs, but I adore boardgames and can occasionally be persuaded to play videogames from time to time. I would rather play things that involve having people sitting around a table, however; socializing, and all that.
I feed myself by running the QA (Quality Assurance) lab at an IT company. This means that I break software and yell at developers all day to fix their code, while coordinating other people who also break software and yell.
I train Wing Chun Kung Fu several times each week for several hours at a time. I'm constantly looking to improve my skill both martially conceptually.
Cooking. Spicy food and seafood (usually that I have caught myself) are what I am best at, but I like to think that I can toss pretty much anything together and make it at least somewhat satisfying.
Fishing. If I could be fishing every minute of every day, I'd be okay with that.
I devour any book on UFOs or the paranormal - maximum points if you do, as well. Talk paranormal with me and we'll get along great.
My favourite book series is the Shadows of the Apt. I also like The Kingkiller Chronicles and The Prince of Nothing. China Mieville is wicked, as are Christie Golden and George R. R. Martin. On the semi-nonfiction side of things, I like classical epics such as the Ramayana, the Norse Poetic and Prose Eddas, the Mabinogion, or the Bhagavad Ghita. For nonfiction, I like books on martial arts theory and philospophy such as The Tao of Jit Kune Do and the Wing Chun Compendium.
I don't watch a lot of TV, but I like the X-Files, Firefly, Corner Gas, Torchwood, Avatar: Airbender, and Invader Zim.
Musically, I like things with lots of energy-- Heavy Metal, hard rock, celtic folk, and punk are my genres of choice. I cannot stand country, and dubstep isn't music, it is the sound of Megatron and Optimus having a love affair.
