Grew up in the bay area and it's pretty hard to imagine wanting to live anywhere else, really. Climate is for suckers; I prefer it to be perfect weather all the time (though I guess we could really go for some rain).
I'm a software engineer and I'm not really ashamed to say I'm pretty nerdy. My big plan to balance that out was to go play adult kickball -- it is quite fantastic.
I enjoy working on things, so at any given time, my mind is full of projects I'd like to get around to. Most of the time, I do an immense amount of research and planning and then find myself winging it. It's fun that way.
So that's my ramble! Don't really know how to conclude it, but luckily, there's more questions and answers below!
Trying to keep my life in balance by going out and spending time with friends when I can. Board games and beer is a pretty solid combo
Movies: The Incredibles, Memento, The Prestige, Batman Begins (apparently I'm a big Christopher Nolan fan)
TV Shows: Chuck, Top Chef, and really anything on USA (Burn Notice, Suits, White Collar, Royal Pains...)
Music: Neon Trees, Rise Against, and anything by John Williams (that guy is a musical genius). Also, I recently discovered a channel on Spotify that is the soundtrack from the TV series Chuck... and it is quite awesome.
Oh, and I love musicals.
Food: pretty much anything is good really. who doesn't love food? but cilantro tastes like metal to me... so, maybe not that

While I'm not too great at planning my life, I like to daydream a lot about optimization. Optimizing anything really: sprinkler layouts at home, opening board game moves, computer code...
Since I play drinking kickball on Thursdays... that usually means Friday is spent in general recovery from the ... headache
