My interests are flamboyantly geeky: I'm heavily into video games, techy stuff on computers, and all things SciFi. I write code for a living and crack esoteric references to my associates while doing so. Barrel of laughs, me. (Well, probably not, unless a slightly British-inspired, dry sense of humor tickles you.)
I also love collecting and reading books; while my library is small by some standards, it is larger than most own, and I am always adding books to it. Not a night goes by when I've not got my nose buried in part of my collection.
I'm very reticent and introverted, in person; while I can write long, semi-coherent missives, and even carry a conversation electronically, I do not fair as well in real life. Usually, though, if you know me well (Catch-22, anyone?), or pour a few drinks down my throat, my tongue loosens dramatically.
I've been progressively embracing a somewhat aggressive form of atheism. While I don't go proselytizing, I'm not against riling up a good argument with theists whenever they happen to (at times, unwittingly) broach the subject. I do not believe that religion has anything to do with morality (certainly, if history has anything to say about it, an inverse relationship appears to exist in the West), and I have issues with the lack of a wall of separation between church and state in the US. I'm not nihilistic, but I can be misanthropic.
I would love to live forever. (Just as long as I don't shrivel into a prune, or have my head severed from my body and stuffed into a jar.)
