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. I've survived grad school and am currently job hunting now that I have my master's degree.
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 I'd love to hear it. :)
I've been told I have a geeky, dark, somewhat dry 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 as a kid I always wanted a Pernese fire lizard for Christmas, I really didn't care which color it was. 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 and gamers of all stripes. 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 Northside Richmond let me know.
If you've gotten this far you should know that I am Polyamorous*. I'm always looking for new friends and relationships.
*...polyamory is a form of relationship in which practitioners have multiple romantic, sexual and/or emotional partners. It differs from swinging with its emphasis on long-term, emotionally intimate relationships, and from adultery with its focus on honesty and (ideally) full disclosure of the network of sexual relationships to all who participate in or are affected by them. Both men and women have access to additional partners in a polyamorous relationship, distinguishing it from polygamy” (Elisabeth Sheff 2005).
