First, and probably most obvious, I'm a huge geek. That aside, I'm much like many other people. I enjoy being entertained, good company, and meeting new people. But.... what sets me apart? Well, I like to think of myself as an extremely loyal, kind, and conscientious person. It isn't always easy to earn the label of "friend" from me, but once you have I make it a point to always be there for you. I take no small amount of pride in being the person that you can call on when you need help... or being the person helping even when you didn't ask for it. Basically, I'm just a big Eagle Scout. (And I really am too!)
I also have an intense curiosity and love of learning. It's one of the reasons I'm still taking classes at 30. Acquiring new skills and information is something I've always enjoyed. My various distraction-based interests sometimes keep my nose out of the text books though. This curiosity also leads me to greatly enjoy debate - often for it's own sake. I have spent many a late night hashing out the topic du jour with my friends. (Luckily, most of my friends tend to enjoy this as well, so it works out.)
Also, I really like parentheticals (in case you haven't noticed).
