I am a fairly amiable, somewhat sociable misanthrope from the wilds of central NJ. I own far too many books (history and science fiction are my favorites but I'll try just about anything). I like good conversation, but not over coffee, because I don't drink coffee. Well, I mean, YOU can go ahead and order coffee, that's fine. While I'm amenable to any kind of social outing, for me the company I keep is more important than the endeavor of the moment. Although I would probably draw the line at ice fishing. I just don't get the concept or the appeal.
I am a Libra, born in the Year of the Tiger, but I don't actually know what either of those things signify. I'm a jungle cat who sees the wisdom in both sides of any given argument, I guess?
I feel like I should warn you all that if there is a gene for interest in sports, it's recessive in my particular pop culture genotype. I know for some people that can be a deal-killer. (I watch sports movies, though.) Unapologetic sci-fi dork here. I can't tell you who's leading the National League in stolen bases, but on the other hand, I DO know who played Lobot, Lando Calrissian's cyborg assistant, in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, so, it's not like I'm totally uncultured.
I tend to be pretty liberal in my thinking, but I have friends and family across the political spectrum and appreciate a good discussion and honest disagreement more than an uncomfortable silence dancing awkwardly around verboten subjects. Somebody once called me argumentative, but they were, of course, wrong, which I went on to demonstrate indisputably in my five-point rebuttal.
Well, this self-summary is almost as long as the old one was. Mission failure.
