I'm also crafty. My most productive endeavor is sarcastic handmade greeting cards (visit the second blog for examples). I try incorporating as many bad puns in them as I can.
Socially, I like to chill with friends, shooting the shit or playing board games. Sometimes I meet with another writer and we work on our projects together. My current work schedule has me working as early as 8am and as late as 12am so it's usually hard to plan things with friends, but I would like to be more sociable.
I'm geek by association. Some of my best friends are hard-core geeks. I hope that doesn't make me sound elitist.
I am an addict of coffee. I don't hide it; everyone knows to not bother me before my morning allowance of (at least) two cups. You have been warned.
Some more tidbits:
- Toilet paper ALWAYS hangs over the top.
- When referring to peanut butter, it is implied that I mean "smooth" peanut butter. None of that chunky crap here!
- Punctuation can save lives and capitalization can clarify situations. Grammar is important.
I would also like to work full time on my creative endeavors but until I can turn a size-able, steady paycheck from it, I will always have a "normal" job.
On a deeper level, I'm a good listener, though I do expect the same of others when it's my turn to talk.
TV: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Fraiser, Tosh.0, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Wonder Years, Arrested Development, Quantum Leap, Sliders, Sherlock, Black Books, Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares. I have just started watching Doctor Who - no spoilers, please!
