I am mary, quite, and contrary
I don't really like "stability" in these things. Mixing it up is fun. I have a few years of savings so I'm not worried.
Oh, and I suppose I should mention that I'm currently in an open relationship.
Programming; it's my job, after all. Oh, and all the related skills that you would expect given my degree - especially mathematics of various sorts. In high school I used to write and do well on all the math contests, and got to go down to PA a few times as part of Ontario's delegation to an American math competition.
Go, the board game.
I'm rated 1k on KGS.
Music games such as ITG, DDR, DrumMania, etc. Sadly, I only ever get to play GH/Rock Band at other people's parties so I haven't really gotten used to the interface :(
Kissing. Or maybe it's just that everyone I've ever kissed was able to make up for my gross ineptitude. Or I just enjoy it so much that I don't notice anything wrong. - Nah, it's me, for sure.
Making my friends laugh. It's not all geek humour, either.
Cutting myself off from drinking (and in general, exhibiting self-control).
Not being disturbed or shocked by things.
Confusing people. I like to make statements that seem completely out of my character, but are actually quite consistent with my beliefs - once you stop making the usual inferences.
That I'm skinny.
That I like to move with a certain grace and dramatic flair when I try to cut through crowds or open doors for people.
That my wardrobe is hilariously out of date. Actually, it consists almost entirely of hand-me-downs.
As far as music goes, I'll listen to damn near everything. I kind of have a soft spot for classical (in particular, anything by Chopin, Satie or Debussy) but my clock radio is set to 104.5, I envy my friend's collection of experimental stuff, I get tunes from 80s video games stuck in my head, I drool over turntablism vids...
As for food, whatever. I'm not vegetarian. I don't care if you are as long as you don't care that I'm not. I appreciate the finer things, when I feel I can afford them. I wish I had more of an appetite because I really enjoy eating, despite appearances.
This question sucks. For the geeks among us, the temptation to list basic necessities of life is too high. And for everyone else, a simple yes/no question "Are you obsessed with sex/your physical appearance/your social status?" would provide about as much information. Oh, and the jokes people make about "counting skills", "sarcasm" etc. are lame.
I compose short stories, poems etc. in my head and never get to write them.
I think for thinking's sake. I practice thinking in other languages. I can hear myself talking to myself - in other languages.
I do long multiplication, simple numerical integration, etc. in my head to relieve boredom.
And of course, I spend lots of time thinking about how I got to where I am now, and wondering how I escaped with so few regrets.
Anyway. Best I can think of at the moment: I used to be a "nice guy". I really think I'm recovering from that now, and not simply turning into a jerk.

Oh, and if you think you're "fluent in C++", you're going to have to prove it.
