I once ate an entire red velvet cake in an afternoon just because it seemed like a challenge. Also, I'm always unsure how to start an introduction. So, yes, self-summary. This is a lot more difficult than I thought it'd be. I guess it would be easier to write this up if I wasn't so distracted by QI, but we all know that I'm not turning that off. Anyway, I'll just put a couple personal facts.
My biggest fear is being nibbled on. Like tiny kittens slowly trying to eat away at me.
I need an alarm clock designed for deaf people to wake up in the morning.
I'm a San Jose Sharks fan.
My cat has a name based on a Robert Heinlein novel.
I love coming up with completely false historical facts and trying to pass them off as truth, making them more unbelievable when people take them as fact.
I have a more pictures of plague doctors hanging in my home than I do of my family.
I think that the recent Judge Dredd movie is vastly underrated.
I like wearing fancy clothes but find occasions to wear them hard to come by.
I will listen to any song if it is remixed with Space Jam.
I once drove almost 500 miles in a single day because I didn't want to pay for shipping.
I didn't know where else to put this but I just got some new jeans and they are so soft and fit really well and I love them
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved to the Bay Area from St Louis, MO. Still getting settled in with work and home.
I’m really good at
Problem solving and research. If I don't know it, I'll find it. I'm
also fairly good at knitting and painting miniatures.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyebrows. I've been told before "I think I'm lost in your
eyebrows. Seriously, send help. It's a thick brush, it's getting
dark, and I think I hear a bear."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For fiction, I love sci fi, fantasy, mystery, and military.
For non-fiction I love military, history, true crime, and
My music tastes include Vagabond Opera, Alex Mauer, it-clings, and
Operation Ivy. Really, it just needs to hook me somehow and I'll
enjoy it. Also, anything from Silver Sprocket's catalog.
I'm not picky when it comes to the type of food, as long as it is
well prepared and can leave an impression with me.
The six things I could never do without
Compelling books, esoteric music, oranges, Napoleonic Wars, hockey, and the sea
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to get a caller off the phone the quickest, what to knit next,
whether I should get more oranges*, how to improve the things
around me, what they call the little plastic things on the ends of
*The answer is always going to be yes. Always.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Or playing games with my friends when I'm in port.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shave my armpits. They just feel cleaner shaved.
