My self-summary
I am human. At least that's what my parents told me. It may just be a marvelous coverup story; I'd never know.

I am a binge reader. I will read a book cover to cover in one sitting if it's well written. To help my sanity, I tend to read collections of short stories so that I can stop after one or two.

I juggle twice a week (more if I can find time). I'm not a clown, but do know a few.

I married the best woman ever! And she makes me smile...

I like cool new gadgets and eventually I will buy them! I'll usually exhaustively research a purchase before deciding that there's something cooler and newer that is more interesting. (shiny!!!)

I play poker, backgammon, and scrabble. I play other games as well, but not necessarily to win.

I am super, lucky, and engaged.
What I’m doing with my life
Living the good life.
I’m really good at
Going out of my way for people I like.

My job.

Operating a motor vehicle after only 2 hours of sleep

Throwing things at people (better at catching that which is thrown at me).

Taking mediocre pictures.

Remembering little details.

Feeding people homecooked meals (I haven't killed anyone yet!).

Reading long books in one sitting.

Finding things on the 'net.
The first things people usually notice about me
A couple of years ago, I'd say my hair, but I cut off my dreadlocks. Now, I'm not really sure, perhaps my lack of six fingers on each hand?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(Books) Books I recommend to people on a regular basis: Heinlein's Job: A comedy of justice; Ellison's Angry Candy; Gaiman's Neverwhere.

Just started the Tales from 1001 Nights. Border's classics are great, but it's too bad they're not hard back anymore :/

Also started Pelevin's The Life of Insects which is an interesting concept. I'll have to pick up a copy of it so I can finish it.

(Movies) Brazil; The City of Lost Children; Spaceballs; Mars Attacks; Amelie; Blazing Saddles; Dr. Zhivago.

(Music) I've been listening to a fair bit of NPR the last couple of months. Musically, I like a wide variety of generes, though I tend to get into ruts with particular artists. Recent leanings are towards classic jazz (Monk, Parker, Miles, Ella, ...) and a couple of local (LA area) independent singer/songwriters.

(Food) Tending towards the healthy side of things. No fast food, very little fried. I eat my veggies and actually enjoy them. I like saltines.

(Drink) I haven't been boozing in a year. I've also been off caffeine from the same date.

(TV) BBC America has some good shows -- Coupling, Hotel Babylon, Robin Hood. Showtime has some good ones too -- Dexter, Californication. I'm giving Flash Gordon a chance, but don't have much hope for it. Planet Earth is amazing in HD, not so amazing in SD.
The six things I could never do without
My senses (does that count as all 6?), curiosity, friends and family, freedom, the letter Z, a smile.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The next move in the game of life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Visiting friends, having dinner, playing scrabble or poker. Being the designated driver.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate going to sleep, but hate waking up in the morning more.
You should message me if
You want to meet me. I am good about responding to anything that's not obviously spam.
