My self-summary
I'm just here for the tests...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Michael Crichton, classic Tom Clancy (nothing post-Bear & The Dragon), Dale Brown (raised on his stuff, Flight of the Old Dog helped keep me sane in like 3rd grade), Larry Correia (a personal friend who writes urban-fantasy for Baen), Massad Ayoob (another personal friend who writes firearms-training books). Also almost anything Military or Transportation History.

Movies: Not much. Last ones I saw in theaters were MIB II and Star Wars Episode II.

TV: Criminal Minds (but not after this season since they're ditching Prentiss again--my dream gal, if only she'd ditch that subcaliber 9mm and replace it with a .40 or .45 Serious Fighting Pistol like Rossi's!), NCIS, MythBusters. Old-school History Channel when it's on, as opposed to the "Axe Men/IRT/reality schlock" that dominates the lineup now. Blasts from the past: A-Team, original Knight Rider (80's kid--someday I WILL build KITT!), Mail Call and Lock & Load w/R Lee Ermey (I LOVE this guy!), Stargate SG1 and Atlantis. Personal favorites: Burn Notice, The Equalizer. (Edward Woodward as a retired, guiltridden and hacked-off James Bond, putting his skills to work for the little guy when nobody else can or will help.)

Music: pretty much film scores and classical, but there's some other stuff in the mix too. Charlie Daniels, Voltaire... MC Hawking's Quake Master Mix and Queen's Gimme The Prize (Kurgan's Theme from Highlander) for when I'm in a mood to fire up a computer game and digitally stomp the living stuffing out of somebody.

Food: most things meat, but not organ meats or seafood. Like Thai, but can't go above two-star (and that's when I have a bad head cold) and have to have it made without fish sauce. LOVE me some all-you-can-eat Mongolian Buffet! (Chang's in Renton is a personal favorite, between the food and proximity to Fry's Electronics and an old friend's hobby shop in Skyway.)
The six things I could never do without
1. My .45. It's protection, hobby, and all I have to remember a gal I once loved and my brief career protecting her by all in one.
2. My laptops--my line of communication to the rest of the world, and my entertainment center and stereo all-in-one. Just these two cases, and I can make myself at home almost anywhere...
3. My friends and family--at the end of the day, other than your good name and your clear conscience, they really are all ya got that counts.

More to follow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm SUCH a geek. I collect model trains (from an old railroading family) and historical wargaming figures (mostly Wings of War/Wings of Glory and the various Axis & Allies Miniatures lines) and build model aircraft and ships occasionally. I also have a form of autism called Asperger's, so I can take a lot of getting used to but I do have my redeeming qualities, or like to THINK I do. LOL
