I work, but actually not that much for a coder - 8ish hour days, checking email afterwards. But I really, really like working - I find what I do to be way more satisfying than it should be, considering its utter insignificance in the grand scheme of things.
Have you ever heard of Piran, in Slovenia? Google it, if not. My favorite place on Earth.
Movies: I remain convinced that Lawrence of Arabia is the greatest movie ever made, and that Groundhog Day is the best movie of the '90s. Right now, I'm still nerding out over the use of solid, bright colors in La La Land.
TV: The Wire, because I'm mildly pretentious. Also because it's awesome. Game of Thrones now...but honestly, just because it's past the books and I want plot advancement. Mr Robot blew my mind on first watch - season two, not so much, but then I discovered Half and Catch Fire seasons 2 and 3 and all was well. Right now, I'm eagerly awaiting each Sunday night for new Leftovers episodes.
Music: I'm fairly sure I qualify as an Old Person as a result of my music tastes: pretty much everything I listen to is at least 10 years old. And most of that is British. I saw Pulp in 2011 in London - I set up an entire trip to Europe primarily so that I could make it to that show. The show, thankfully, given the effort involved, was fantastic. Also on a big PJ Harvey kick lately.
Also? Shostakovich? Leningrad Symphony? That is my *jam*.
Food: I love Indian food. I like a lot of other foods. But I'm not the most adventurous eater in the world - I was raised on bland '50s style cooking and my palate still hasn't quite recovered.
How in the name of god to write a decent first message here. I get stage fright. While not on stage.
Also why I can't enter a "most private thing" section. Just not showing up as an option, and dammit, I've got a good one.
You want to suggest books to me and you want to check out books I might suggest. Always need more reading material, always want to share the books I love.
You want to meet my cat. She's much cooler than me, honestly. Though I am less likely to run and hide in my room if you come over.
You're not a Trump supporter. Or willing to "give him a chance". Noooope.
You fantasize about living somewhere in Central Europe - I'm positively obsessed with Berlin, I lived in Budapest for the second half of 2015, and am spending my Octobers in a little town on the tiny Adriatic coast of Slovenia.
You've got a better idea for a first meetup/date/encounter than normal - I'll admit it, I've got an anxiety problem and first dates are pretty much the absolute worst.
You should also probably be a bit patient. As you may have noticed, I do ramble on.
