Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Do what I tell you."
"I'm not interested."
These are just some of the things you'll hear if you answer this
ad. I'm an idiot and I don't care about anyone except myself.
P.S.: No dogs!
If anyone can guess from which British sitcom the above piece comes
from, you can get a cookie as a reward.
Aside from that, I'm an employed graphic artist
who also fancies
himself as a writer and all around creative individual. Most of my
writing at the moment centers around PBeM games
, but I'm slowly changing
that. I enjoy science fiction
, and history
of all things. I
enjoy pen and paper
Oh, and I like to cook, though oddly enough not for myself. I've
always done better when I cook for others—even it's only for one
other (hint-hint). I have less concern for myself, even if it would
Who would be my ideal counterpart? Good question. I don't think
there's a single answer to that. As far as the type of relationship
I dream about? I don't want Romeo and Juliet. I want Gomez and
Morticia Addams! They knew how to live and love.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Life's a transition, and I've made a pretty big one recently,
settling my late mother's estate, and moving myself into a humble
sized condo. It means being closer to work, and able to save money,
and hopefully pursue a few more goals in my life.
I'm finally re-immersing myself into the con scene—at least a
little bit. My first experience after so many years was a good one.
While I'm not up to traveling to every con across the state (yet),
I am up for the little cons. Clockwork Alchemy's great. Fanime…a
wee bit overwhelming, but I like to visit.
I'm finally in a place where, once I stop procrastinating, I can
start pursuing the advancement of my skill set. I'm a good graphic
designer, but print is easy. Web is hard…and it shouldn't be this
hard. I'm looking to fix that.
And that's where I am so far.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a good graphic designer, that's for certain.
Pretty decent cook; I can even make fondue, but I prefer making
I can really stay in character when I'm playing an RPG.
Writing. I like writing stuff, from short stories to PBeM
History, especially about WAR! GLORIOUS WAR! I blame this last part
on the early days of the History Channel. I was seriously
unemployed back then, and that's what I watched a lot of.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can definitely say with confidence now that most people notice
how easily I smile. THEN they notice the overweight stuff and the
odd sense of humor—not necessarily in that order, mind you.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pencil and Paper (they count as one thing, right?)
My steamer trunk full of costume bits
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Characters I've imagined and putting them into interesting
scenarios/situations, and having imaginary conversations with them.
If anyone has a problem with this, it's probably because the voices
in my head won't talk to them.

Over at a friend's place watching cheesy movies and
cooking...something (If I'm lucky). Lately though my Fridays have
been an open thing, and I've been looking for new ways to fill it
up. Any help in this area would be appreciated. Alcohol neither
required nor desired.
