I know one thing: That I know nothing.
I came here in a time machine that you invented.
I am polyamorous. Feel free to ask me about what that means to me if you're interested in knowing. I am in a primary relationship with the wonderful Marzipan_Otter; we are not looking for anything in particular from this site at this time, but feel free to message either of us if you and/or your partner(s) are looking for something in particular that we satisfy.
Now that THAT sorting hat has done its thing:
I have been in Oregon for a year as of today (Jan. 16, 2016). I come from the far-off land of Arkansas. There's really very little to say about my time in Arkansas.
I'm a tremendous geek for technology, gadgets, and games. I particularly enjoy how games can be a medium for stories; one look at my "Favorites" section below will attest to that.
I absolutely LOVE road trips – I dream one day of touring the lower 48 by motorcycle using nothing but old state highways and town streets the whole time – no Interstates/federal highways allowed.
I can spend hours in museums – art, science, history, or whatever tchotchke someone has decided to collect. You know how people will fall down a Wikipedia Hole? It's like that. I'll put it out there: If you want to go on a date to a museum, the answer is an emphatic "Yes."
I have an epic family; a few amazing friends; and a half-blind cat named Charlie who is awesome.
I love this job, and it's only getting better from here.
I want to publish a video game and I have designs on a JRPG-style one.
Definitely not all-inclusive, or else the list would be enormous (instead of merely huge):

Music: Everything but country music after about 1980.
Food: Everything! Except nattou.
