Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I loathe self-summaries.
They're the elevator pitches of the internet and almost always
useless. I don't need to say I'm passionate - I need to *be*
I have many hobbies. They are awesome. They're also utterly boring
to talk about if you're also not into them - mostly because they
are experiential and talking about doing something isn't that
exciting unless both sides are vested in the hobby. But I can
totally go for a fair bit about how Wizards of the Coast putting in
a paragraph saying that Trans is a Thing and it's cool and how it

you want or how the wave function generated by a Systema
practitioner 'curves' inside the body.

Non-interactive media short answer: many things - so long as it
doesn't devolve into mindless orgies or multi-page political
diatribes. NEW for 2013 - Miseryporn. That's now on the list. Thank
you BBC 3. If I wanted nothing but utter bleakness and horror I'd
be working for a non-profit.

Knows, Archer, Warehouse 13, Person of Interest, Frozen.
I have a weakness for Covers, Abridged Series, Anime, Mashups and
I loathe laugh tracks and look forward to the day where you can
purchase old shows with them removed.
Food: Mostly anything. I have a strong distaste for fish and
bitter. I quite enjoy (mostly Americanized) Chinese, Indian
(Northern) and well prepared meat. Also too, Anthony's Pizza.

martial arts (western and eastern), games (Board Games, table top
RPGs of the video sort ), the perils of your work seeming to be a

cooking. Or Kink. We could totally talk about kink.

relationship and am 'All In', as they say, on it.
You've got an excellent suggestion for something I should be
