I love words, music, films, and television. It helps that I do that creative-type stuff for a living! I can also play any single piano piece in existence, as long it's specifically the first movement of Moonlight Sonata, a couple Chopin preludes, and none of the others.
If I could meet 5 dead people they'd be (in no particular order): Sagan, Lincoln, MLK, Hendrix and Cordwainer Smith. Each of them has influenced my life and opinions in such a way that I wouldn't be the same person without them.
I'd like to go back in time and visit medieval England, but an alternative version of England that has no completely awful plague that wiped out a third of the planet. Oooor the racism. You know what, maybe I'll just go to Medieval Times instead...
I like being a cornucopia of random knowledge and facts. I like trivia games. I can usually beat my friends at Trivial Pursuit, but I think that's more because they're bad at it than I'm any good. We'll keep that last part just between us, however. :)
I've always been rather decisive: I know what I want, I work hard to get it. Unless it's what restaurant to go to for lunch. THAT'S TOO TOUGH.
Boring life stuff. I have my shit together. My friends usually come to me for advice about insurance, banking etc. That is super boring, and now I'm maybe thinking passively racist? Hey, let's get the Jew to do our financial planning! Apparently my friends are racist bastards.

My favorite accent is of the Scottish variety. I listen to George Galloway on YouTube when I'm bored. Mostly just for his accent.
That goes for ".gif" as well; "Jiff" can suck it.
No seriously if you read Vance, just message me so we can dork out. We'll have more ringlets than we know what to do with.
If you're a girl who has a medium-to-large-sized dog who would like to let me play with said dog.
You would like to discuss the merits and drawbacks of a free-market pseudocapitalist system as compared to the antonymous system of socialism controlled by a single governing body. Oooooor you want to just talk about how delicious bagels are. Because bagels -- for real.
