I am currently in Idaho, but shall be returning to the Knoxville area in the near future (this will be my 13th move in the past ten years, and I plan to stay put for a while this time).
I am very much a warm weather person, which was a large part of my decision to leave my "native" Chicago for Tennessee in 2004. I've moved to Idaho twice (once from late 2009 until early 2011, and again from early 2012 to present) for the benefit of my son, but I'd prefer to stay in a southern climate.

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.
