Plotting, planning, scheming
For work I build search engines for people, strangely that seems to
be what I often do for leisure, some people may think that mad but
fun to do a hobby for money. Kinda like being a pro sports player I
I am also attempting to figure out how to play go
long distance with my best friend.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making seriously hard things look easy while at the same time
having this knack for making simple things look like I am examining
them if I am a visitor from Mars.
The cliche would be, I am great at cooking, but I am! My curry is
awesome! I have done the pro chef thing once in a previous
incarnation. While I don't
enjoy the lifestyle, I
sometimes enjoy doing elaborate and screwball
I am also good at things that would be described as "reducing
LR-parse trees into Finite-State-Transducers". I think that might
just be something my mind came up with after I hit my head on
Making myself and others laugh; I try to find ways to amuse myself

, with a bent towards some seriously obscure

I will eat anything tasty. If I can convince
things to stay still, I might eat them. If compelled to choose, at
gunpoint, one cuisine for the rest of my life I would have to go

what I have not mastered.
However, I don't understand tacos, which appear to be a poor

My keychain, to many its a lump of metal, to me it's a personal
talisman from a previous life.
My bag. Less about the contents; been lived out of it multiple
times, on multiple continents, used it as a pillow, occasionally a
weapon and has sometimes stored stuff, when it seemed dry
My books, I would probably die trying to save them in a fire.
The computer I write this on, a hackneyed cliche for sure; but it

My passport - an uninspiring little red book by itself - but aids
in the creation of adventures.
Finally the breaking of rules, which lets me cheat having 7 (no 8)
