'allo. I'm Tryn. Nice to meet you. Pull up a chair, get yourself comfortable. Would you like a cushion for your back? Help yourself to some coffee, I've got a nice Hawaiian blend brewing.
All right, now with that out of the way, we can dispense with the pleasantries. How many bears does it take to eat a dinosaur?
If your first question wasn't "Black or Brown Bear" or "Are we talking velociraptors or a T-Rex?", what was it?
Ah, still here? Excellent.
I went to University of Texas specializing in computational linguistics, since I found it fascinating combining high level computer science theory with natural language. Basically, trying to get computers to understand us!
Most of my friends are geeks as well, tending towards coming over and playing an action/adventure video game or board games, or watching Master Pancake (a live action version of MST3K) at the Alamo Drafthouse, a local theatre in Austin, TX.
When I was living in Little Rock (where I'm from), I once drove all the way to Texarkana one night with a friend, for the hell of it. I had to pick up a rock on the Texas side of the border, for some reason. I think I was collecting rocks at the time.
