My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Me in a nutshell: Help! How did I get stuck in this nutshell?!

I am a curious person. I enjoy solving complex problems. I am a systems admin by day, an aspiring costumer and devourer of books by night. I frequently feel as though I am enjoying life more than the average corporate commuter and occasionally have to resist the urge to dance down Nicollet Mall.

And let's not beat around the bush. I'm also a nerd. Proud of it. I hang out at comic shops and trivia nights. I'm a fan of board games, card games, and computer games. I help run quiz bowl events for high school students and judge Magic tournaments.

Not a big fan of sitting around in front of the television when there's nothing better to do. I'd much rather be out doing something to exercise my body or my mind.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Economically, working for a small business doing systems admin and tech support work, while helping develop new products I shouldn't talk about.

Artistically, I'm trying to sing more, and channel seven school-years of orchestral double bass into learning the bass guitar. Also starting to branch into sewing and costume design.

Physically, trying to train for a 5k while avoiding injuries and other setbacks.

Socially, alternating between a couple of pub quiz teams and wine-and-board-game nights with friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Remembering odd facts, though Jeopardy keeps refusing to let me on the show.

Creative expansion from instructions: Cooking inspired by recipes, tailoring from patterns, furniture from IKEA, the occasional guilty-pleasure LEGO kit.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I talk funny sometimes. Not due to any speech impediment, but studying linguistics has done some weird things to my speech patterns and too much exposure to British television and radio coupled with a lot of reading has messed with my vocabulary.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Eyeglasses, unless I want to live a miserable headache-ful life.
- Good friends and good wine, preferably shared
- An intellectual challenge
- Quiet walks on crisp autumn evenings
- A well-written novel
- Coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The color of infinity inside an empty glass

If I were sent back in time, how I would convince someone I'm trustworthy and/or how I'd make a living

Why parts of geek culture seem to have a problem with misogyny and how to encourage it not to.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never learned to drive. At first, this was because of being busy/lazy. Nowadays, it's more out of economic responsibility. However! This will change this year! I've promised myself I'd get a license before my next birthday.
