I'm a bibliophile, but since I've been in college I've mainly had to resort to audiobooks for my pleasure reading, especially in light of the time crunch that graduate school can create.
Sociology is my academic love. Now if I can just survive grad school and get this bloody thesis done.
I have been embroiled in an affair with science fiction and fantasy since I was a child. I remember devouring Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern books when I was a kid and reading Dune for the first time when I was nine. I may not have understood half of the deeper implications of the book but it hooked me and I've read it five times since. As for the books written by Frank Herbert's son, I think Penny arcade said it well here. I love hearing how others got into reading and scifi, so if you have a story send it to me :)
I've been told I have a geeky, dark and kinky sense of humor. Be prepared for a knowledge of geek culture that may be considered a possible sign of mental instability by some United States Surgeons General.
For example... I know the name of the actor who played Khan in the second Star Trek movie and I always wanted a Pernese fire lizard for Christmas, I really didn't care which color it was. I know what a Wartenburg Wheel is and what the word 'column' refers to in 'double column tie.' If the Doctor showed up and invited me into the TARDIS, I'm sorry, I'd be gone in a heartbeat.
I identify with geeks, cosplayers / costumers of all kinds, and gamers of all stripes and am quite kink friendly. Playing around with knots and such was the way I was able to mostly stop biting my fingernails and has evolved into something I very much enjoy playing around with. I guess what it eventually comes down to is, as you will hear at any scifi con, 'let your freak flag fly.' (Which reminds me, one of these days I should get my friends together with fabric and we should make our own freak flags.)
If anyone knows of a D&D game in Fairfax let me know :)
Yep, that pretty much sums it up. :) I love scifi conventions and would love to get enough people to share a room with so that I can afford Dragoncon. (Help with costumes would be greatly appreciated, I can exchange woodwork and chainmail.)
If you've gotten this far you should know that I am Polyamorous, currently in one relationship with [Joyfulorb], but I am always looking for new friends and relationships.
I am inquisitive, bemused, and geeky.
