I like reading imaginative literature, making machines work, sketching and sculpting, slow dancing, and cackling over human obduracy with select friends. I don't like smoky bars, TV chatter, psychics, grim fanatics, and those who would trade freedom for false security, or trade upon the public's tendency to do the same.
Longtime readers of this profile will have noticed that I sometimes identify as bi, and sometimes as straight. This changes every couple of years, according to my prevailing mood. I'm inserting this sentence here for the record.
I am skeptical, confusticated, and pythonesque
As of September 2010, I have lost over 60 pounds on the Hacker Diet and I will not stop until I am at a healthy weight.
I am self employed. I run a computer business with my partner, friend and lover, Hamachi.
Writing (I write sonnets for people I'm wooing and nonsense verse for my inner shoggoth, and I compose puzzles for people I respect).
I have a facility for picking up on patterns in speech, song and art, and replicating them. Parody delights me.
b) Memento. I was thoroughly engrossed; I felt as if the movie had ended before it began.
c,d) Musical food [candy whistles and the like].
You should also message me if you have visited http://www.jja.org and either liked what you saw or wish to demand an explanation.
If you like riddles and puzzles, let me know and I'll send you a few that I have composed. Here's an easy one:
From the bones of the earth comes a new thing; its face is a window, its mouth a door; it has many teeth that touch your fingertips, and by it you may know me without meeting me.
And here's an atypical sequence puzzle:
What number is next: 1, 3, 3, 5, 9, ...?
There is more than one appropriate answer. A hint: the answer relates to the difference between power and importance.
