(I have written the following for other purposes - I like it so much that I've decided to reappropriate it here. Call it laziness, call it writer's block...call it what you will, basically.)
I was born on an Irish sea of eggs and porter...not really. In fact, I've never been to Ireland. Though I'd very much like to go. That's one thing; I'd like to go just about anywhere I've never been. No such thing as being too well-traveled, I'd say. Or well-read, for that matter; I enjoy reading, whenever I have the chance. Especially good poetry and drama. I love music; my CD shelf tends towards classical and opera, but with rare exception I'll listen to just about anything. I'm also a big fan of anything arts-related. I can happily spend an afternoon exploring a new museum or gallery, and I enjoy going to concerts whenever I can. I've begun exercising regularly in an attempt to get rid of some of my flab, but I've a ways to go before I become what I'd like. I'm not a big sports buff, and I can't cook, although I like to eat. Which latter is a failing, I fear.
Another thing - by some people's standards I'm pretty conservative. Not by mine; I'm happy being middle-of-the-road in most respects. But I'll be up front; you don't like Republicans, even non-rabid ones, you probably won't like me. If you do - let's put it this way: I'm socially liberal, fiscally conservative. Not a horrible match, says I.
Oh...and apparently I should mention that I can speak French. This machine is prompting me so to do. And I edit Wikipedia, believe it or not - which includes a fair amount of translating from French. And Italian, and sometimes even German, with the help of an automated system. (Ahime, mein Deutsch ist nonexistent, malheureusement.) Oh...and I keep a French pocket dictionary on my desk, and I DO actually use it from time to time.
Je ne veux pas parler de moi en Francais. Surtout parce-que mon ordinateur n'a pas des accents, et je suis trop paresseux d'eux trouver.
I am eccentric, erudite, and well-read
