Prejudice, Ray Bradbury. Also some things that aren't fiction but

they work the bugs out of it. I love talking about game design, and

Sarcastic and offbeat like myself, narcissism maybe?

cower in fear! Nothing is too spicy! I also like sushi and Indian
food and know some amazing places for them.
