I like being outside however recent years have seen the time I get to spend kayaking, bike/hiking, and play freezer golf drop off. I am recovering from an achilles repair that I had at the beginning of the year, mostly at this point i just need to build strength back. It would no hurt to lose some extra pounds I put on while sitting around more than I liked as well.
Currently I am planning a whole series of remodeling projects for my house. The current project involves replacing all the copper piping with PEX, which I must add annoys me to no end I can't seem to get the pipe to straighten out to save my life.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a problem solver. I love learning and figuring out new things. I am lucky enough to be programmer in which I get paid to solve problems in new and inventive ways. I pick up new hobbies and at the point where I have gotten the hang of them and am getting good at what ever it is I drop it and find something new. I guess you could say I am a challenge seeker.
I’m really good at
I am good at computers, fixing them, programming them, beating them
at their own games. I have gotten pretty good at this breathing
thing too I only forget a couple of times a day now. Oh yea and
being sarcastic. Almost forgot that one.
The first things people usually notice about me
Quiet, shy, smart ass, won't shut up. It all depends on who is around and how comfortable I feel.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So who wants to spend the next month reading this list? Let’s just
say that I have 5 big book shelves full of book, movies, video
games, and TV series. I like just about anything that is mostly
fiction. To me the whole point for reading and watching movies is
an escape. So I stick to fiction, and avoid anything that sounds in
any way plausible, like zombies.
Ok, I will list a few.
Authors: Goodkind, Tolken, Jim Butcher, Weis and Hickmen, Lois
McMaster Bujold, Robert Jorden ( he can be a little hard to read
toward the middle of the wheel of time)... You get the point sci-fi
Movies: Same as the books for the most part only throw in action
and comedy. Examples: Long Kiss Good Night, Fifth Element, Matrix,
Safari, and the Holy Grail of course. I love British humor. There
are a lot more, trust me it would take a very long time.
TV: I don’t really watch TV I buy the series so what is on right
now is not always what I am watching. It varies a lot, Bones,
Mentalist, Star Gate SG1, Atlantis, Farscape, la Femme Nikita and
Nikita (the new one even though they don’t really track very
Music is harder: My tastes vary depending on my mood. I like
everything from old Irish folk songs and classical music to main
stream alternative, rock, metal. Enya, Shinedown, 3 Days Grace,
breaking benjamin to name a few.
The six things I could never do without
Books ( because most of the time they get the ball started then you get the movies and games.)
A good place to hide from the insanity of the world
Sarcasm (becuase other wise I would have to take everyone seriously)
A project to be working on
One more thing to add to this list ( just wish I knew what it was becuase then my life would be complete)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I will make it back to the point I was at before I injured my ankle. What my next programming project should be. What type of wood floors I should put in and where I should floor first since it will be my first time installing real wood floors. I am thinking one of the closets.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching movies, playing games, going somewhere so that I can have
fun on my weekend, or just getting stuff done so that I have time
later to hang out with my freinds who apparently don't beleive in
friday nights or weekends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I signed up for a online dating site. Shh don't tell anyone.
