I grew up in Chicago (both the city and the burbs). I went to 4 different grammar school and 2 HSs. Lived in Tennessee from 2004 until 2009, idaho from 2009 until 2011, back to Tennessee from 2011 to early 2012, and now back in Idaho since March of 2012. After 11 moves in the past 8 years alone, I'd like to settle down for a while. Being a Gypsy gets rather tiring sometimes.
I like it HOT. As in I once spent two days chopping down trees when the heat index was 118-120, and I volunteered to do it. Anything under 50ish I consider cool/cold. Naturally, when I left Chicago I vowed not to move north again. When I left Idaho the first time, I once again vowed never to move north again. So now, naturally I'm back in Idaho. Go figure.

I'm notorious for spouting random song lyrics, movie quotes, or really bad puns. It's infectious.too. Last week I spoke to a friend I haven't talked to in a year and she says she curses me weekly when she's walking around and a rondom song pops into her head BWAHAHAHA
I have a strange sense of humor. I like Epic Rap Battles of History and Oxhorn videos.
I love comedy and comedians: George Carlin, Dennis Leary, Robin Williams, Jeff Foxworthyand Lewis Black rank among my favorites. A friend of mine turned me onto Jeff Dunham a few years ago. "Silence....I keel you". HA!
Bumper sticker: Do not meddle in the affairs of Dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
I'm grew up a GAMER Whether it is card games (anything from Spades to Uno to Magic:The Gathering) to board games (anything from Monopoly to Chess to Clue) to RPG's (D&D, Vampire:The Masquerade, Shadowrun). From computer/console games (particularly Civilization III & IV for my computer and Final Fantasy X on the Playstation2) to math puzzles (Cross Sums, Sudoku).While I've largely grown out of that lifestyle since I hit 30, especially now that I have a 4 year old to help raise, if it's a game I might be willing to play it from time to time.

I have an interest in personality systems, and am a big fan of the Enneagram. I am a Type 5 with a very strong 4 wing, otherwise known as an Iconoclast (which is where the icon part of my name derives from). While not absolute, I do fit my profile very well (both the good point, and, unfortunately, the bad points as well).
I am very opened minded about a lot of things. While there are some things that are just not right for me, or that I am just not into, it doesn't mean I think they are wrong for everyone. Conversely, there are some aspects of my life that work for me that would clearly not work for everyone else. The trick is to find those people for whom life works in harmony with each other.
