I'm a bit of a bon vivant and a part-time intellectual that aspires to a lifestyle of learned decadence. That might seem more in keeping with the cultural environment of 17th-century Venice than contemporary North America, but then again the Venetians didn't have the internet or modern medicine, so I guess I can't complain.
I'm a bit of a geek, particularly when it comes to TV shows, anime, and science fiction. I especially enjoy JRPGs and a few other genres of video games. My other main hobby is cooking, which is convenient since I experience a strange compulsion to eat food every day.
Professionally, I'm finishing a PhD in musicology, which more or less amounts to the acquisition of numerous tools to discuss and analyse the culturally elevated music of dead people. Couple that with utter ignorance of nearly all of the music people actually listen to today, and you've pretty much got it. This often leads to incredulous stares when I mention that I have never heard of [insert extremely famous band with international reputation here]. Sorry, it's really nothing personal! I do like most things on being exposed to them, though. I'm also involved in the Skeptical movement and write occasionally for a blog.
Oh, and I'm INTJ if you're into that sort of thing. I can also be a major introvert, and it can take some coaxing to get me out of the house to social events, especially to meet new people. Once I get familiar I relax considerably.
