In a previous life I was a software engineer, but realized it was something I could do, but not something I loved. So I went to grad school, found my calling as an information professional, and earned an MLIS degree. After some fun as a PM at Microsoft Research (doing all sorts of things including research on Richard Feynman, Big History, scientific publication tools, and web stuff), I ended up at ProQuest doing data analysis and software stuff to help academic research librarians better do what they do.
Although my friends may not agree -- I'm definitely an introvert. I can put on a good act when I'm around people, but I always need to recharge on my own. I guess that's why I've never felt the need to always be in a relationship and consequently I haven't spent much time dating or in relationships.
The only interest I have in politics is the comedic fodder it provides for The Daily Show and Colbert Report.
I am risk-averse, thoughtful, and sensitive.
I love arcades, and in recent years I've been trying to visit both old and new. It's nice to see the resurgence of arcades in the form of "barcades", and I intend to get as much playtime in as possible before they recede into obscurity.
Note: This entire section was written for me by a friend. I didn't know what to put here so I did some user research! :-)
I'd like to add: video games (arcade, console, PC, mobile) and pinball
Here's a combined A-Z list of my favorite TV and movies. It's mostly based on my 5 star ratings in Netflix, with a little creative juggling... It's also 8+ years old, but I don't feel like updating it!
Army of Darkness, Black Adder, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dexter, Edward Scissorhands, Fantastic Voyage, Godzilla: Final Wars, Happiness of the Katakuris, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Joe's Apartment, Kill Bill, Little Shop of Horrors (both), May, Night of the Living Dead, Office Space, Pushing Daisies, Q - The Winged Serpent, Red Dwarf, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Time Bandits, Uzumaki, V: The Original Miniseries, Westworld, X-Men, Young Frankenstein, Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain
I almost exclusively listen to mashups, though I'll listen to C89.5 if I'm forced to use the radio. In high school I learned all the lyrics to a number of rap songs, and can still rap out several Young MC songs, C&C Music Factory's Everybody Dance Now, and 3am Eternal by the KLF. I also like the bizarre and funny -- recently a friend introduced me to some songs by David Allan Coe. In general though, I don't like country. I often sing in the safety of my car, and am not afraid to belt out Cascada's Miracle, or other tunes that guys should probably not sing. ;-)
I'm pretty flexible when it comes to food. I'm up for American, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, etc. But I tend to have an aversion to vegetables, and I avoid fish. Certain types of sushi is ok -- Blue C's seared tuna and eel are pretty awesome. Unless it is well hidden and seasoned to the point of being undetectable, I won't eat salmon or other fish. It's all too "fishy". Nutella is also very important, as is dark chocolate.
Learning (school, internet, books, etc.)
Entertainment (video games, TV/movies, internet, boardgames)
Information (both for learning and entertainment)
Basic Necessities (food, shelter, clothing, etc.)
I should qualify that -- if I need to be somewhere at a certain time, like for a movie, I'll be there on time. But if it's a more nebulous meeting up kind of thing I probably won't be the first to arrive...
Going out to dinner with friends is pretty common, with or without TV/movie watching afterward. I used to play boardgames a lot, but in recent years I've lost interest, mostly due to the constant barrage of new games being played with little chance to play old favorites. These days I might be at an arcade.
