friends have known me for a long time, so none of them remember.
However, my survey of a few recent friends indicates that my
intelligence and humor are quite noticeable.

texts. I also enjoy novels. I most recently read all of Charles
Stross's Laundry novels.

I see many films in the theater. I also like to watch TV shows once

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
