Australia really is a magical land; everything is upside down, knifey spoony is the national sport, and there are kinder eggs as far as the eye can see!
Around the world in 80 days? Pfft, I beat that.
I've tried my hand at white water piracy and ended up beached on a rock. There was, unsurprisingly, very little treasure to be had.
My old life was starting to drag, so I traded it in for a new life in SD. It's still got that new life smell.
I can't wait to learn the ancient Japanese art of... sight seeing.
Also shopping, I hear that I can get just about anything out of a vending machine in Japan!
In case the pictures weren't a dead giveaway, I'm a geek. Which means I enjoy geeky things like: scifi, fantasy, comic conventions, cosplay, books, board games, and... well, lots of random things that I can easily get carried away talking about.
Traveling a couple times a year (mostly for comic-like conventions - strap on that cosplay, we're going in).
And when I can find the inspiration, I craft. I've almost glued my fingers together so many times.
On the professional side; I'm an excellent Network engineer. Ten years of experience helped me find, just about, the perfect job.
Always looking for what's next.
-Understanding what you mean.
-Baking; but only the unhealthy things.
-Carrying my end of the conversation.
1) I love fantasy novels. It's not rare for me to miss a bit of sleep because of "just one more chapter".
I would recommend anything by Anne Bishop, Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Peter V. Brett.
I also sometimes read comic books or graphic novels.
2) Pixar and Disney movies for sure. Action, Adventure, Comic book, and what you would call generally geek movies.
I also love a lot of "classic" 90s movies.
3) It's easier for me to pick favorite shows than movies. Some of the top ones are Firefly, Farscape, Buffy, Angel, Wonderfalls, Special Unit 2, Stargates SG1, Dexter, Community, a few of the Star Treks, Game of Thrones, Archer, Family Guy, Sealab 2021, Once Upon a Time... Oh, and a few dozen Anime.
Joss Whedon may very well be my deity.
4) I like music, i have music playing most of the time, but I don't consider myself a music person. So giving you a list of bands wouldn't really tell you much about me.
Italian food, Deli food, Bread, several Chinese and Thai dishes, a few things from an Indian or Mexican menu, and Brownie Sundaes.
I do not enjoy sea food.
I'm not a foodie. That has been confirmed. I like a variety of things, but I have fairly simple tastes.
-The Internet: There is just so much knowledge to find! Just check behind the porn.
-Computers: What? It's part of my job... okay fine, I'm just a tech guy.
-Friends: Everything is better shared. Well, almost everything.
-Privacy: Oh thank the gods, I'm so sick of those people.
-Games: Especially board games. But there is room for some video, card, and general table top gaming.
And I'm always thinking "What's Next?"
I'm not a very private person. But I'm also not an exhibitionist. So you'll have to actually ask questions to get private answers, I wont just shotgun out private information.
You can bring some positive energy with you. I could use some more "let go do something!" people in my life.
You want to suggest something new for me to try.
