My self-summary
Would that I could, but I can't, so I shan't
Ik spreek en schrijf ook Nederlands.
Ich verstehe auch Deutsch, aber es ist lange her das ich es regelmäßig schreiben hätte. Soll am erst noch Fehler tolerieren. (I did not run that through translation or spell check, hoping the sentence itself makes my point)
My sister in law told me I have a nice voice to listen to. A close friend told me I have interesting eyes. Another good friend forbade me to shave my head in solidarity "because you have awesome hair". Someone else tells me I'm deceptively strong (for an IT nerd) - DIY and motorcycles I guess.

My twitter:
My EE-Stack profile (for more techy people?):

Steam name Merdosh.

What I’m doing with my life
Freelancing. Helping people I like. And also:

Currently working on a design contest for Würth-Midcom and as a part of that blogging the whole process over at

Used to be a decent dancer of almost anything and sort of wanting to pick it back up. Something Latin preferably, always liked the coordination chacha, samba, salsa and zouk take.
I’m really good at
I'm good at becoming acceptable at things quickly.
Making Brownies. It's an established fact.
Making up sketches and jokes inside my head that make me laugh uncontrollably, but that cannot be explained to any degree to anyone else.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know.
I'm told I can seem intimidating initially, which sucks, because I'm really not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't really know how this bit helps, but okay...

I like many kinds of food in all kinds of situations. Omnivore who'll happily spend a week on fruit and/or vegetables alone. Started baking gluten free and vegan things once in a while as a challenge. (not based on vegan/gluten free recipes.) Genetically strongly dislike peanuts, but it's okay if other people have them near me. ( so, if it ever gets to meeting/dates, just ordering peanuts is clear enough of a signal ;-) )
Dutch beer (Heineken specially) give me hangovers even at moderate quantities. (honest! If I'd drink 2 liters of wine I'd be fine, though tired, the next day, 2 liters of Heineken and I'm a wreck all day next day.)

Books: Good stories, with plot lines.
I was surprised to find I liked Kathy Reichs' crime/thriller books when I started them long ago. (They later created the basis for Bones.)

TV: British comedy, panel shows and stand-up. Some drama (not all though). Some sci-fi (like ST-TNG, or Firefly. None of that Brannon Braga or JJ Abrahams slurry).

In the case of music: Anything that isn't easily replicated by slamming one's head repeatedly into a cheap late-90's keyboard.
Six things I could never do without
There's a lot I really, really prefer to not do without.

But with just water and basic foods that nourish I'll make it anywhere eventually.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All. None. I'm good at over-thinking on occasion.

- Where can I best hide my thoughts, once they have foolishly left the front of my face?
- If you colour everywhere outside the lines, are you not just colouring inside the lines again?
- Can you be accused of having lost your mind if you know where you left it, but just refuse to use it?
- Does anybody care that "You don't know what you've got, until it's gone" is a temporal inaccuracy?
On a typical Friday night I am
very disappointed about finally having established "a typical Friday night".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
If you're not the kind of person who needs me to tell them when to send a message.
The two of us
