I'm in an open relationship but not a polyamorous one. Labels are complicated and problematic, but hopefully useful?
I try to be genuine in every aspect, and surround myself in my life with whimsy, honesty, joy, and delight. To walk a path of social justice as an imperfect, improving ally and to try to make the world a better place.
I rock out in my chair to Van Canto and Vanessa Mae, to Freedom Call and Shostakovich.
I like sitting around in cafes talking about books and the nature of humor, and I like exploring steam tunnels and buildings that used to be munitions factories.
I consider all parts of the Bay Area that can be reached by some combination of Caltrain, BART, and Muni to be local to me.
Trying to lose weight and get back in shape. With my family's history of diabetes and heart/cholesterol problems, my current state of physical health is not apocalyptic, but is still a problem.
Volunteering (in a technical capacity) for Democratic campaigns.
TV/Movies: Firefly/Serenity, Spaceballs, and The Princess Bride, again, among a host of others. Have been really, really enjoying the recent run of Marvel movies.
Food: Stir fry, baked chicken leg quarters, steak, sushi, chili... there's very little I don't enjoy cooking and even less I don't enjoy eating, but I do not eat bacon and I generally dislike cooked fish.
Music: Apocalyptica, Tom Lehrer, DragonForce, Jonathan Coulton, Shostakovich, Vanessa Mae.
Webcomics (Come on, it's relevant): xkcd, Schlock Mercenary, Girl Genius, Order of the Stick, Dresden Codak, Guilded Age. More recently: Wondermark, Scenes From a Multiverse, and PS238.
Why some of the double-bracketed phrases in my profile create tags, and some don't.
I have a deep and abiding love of certain genres of music that I cannot explain. Why do I love acapella covers of pop songs? Stratovarius's cover of Depeche Mode? I don't know.
I get a full STI panel every three months. Negative on all counts every time, but why be uncertain?
... you want someone to nerd out with!
... if you need an activity buddy, whether that's working out, watching movies/TV shows, going on hikes, urban exploration, board games, or a book club.
... you think "Whenever I see you, you set all my inodes aflutter. So how about we cd to your homedir and fsck all night long." is a hilarious-though-eye-rolling pickup line.
