I've ridden to Australia on a shooting star. And flew home on the back of an Eagle - You have to bring your own bag of peanuts.
Around the world in 80 days? Pfft, I beat that.
I've tried my hand at white water piracy and ended beached on a rock for what felt like a lifetime. There was unsurprisingly very little treasure to be had.
I got tired of life so I hit the reset button. This new one still has the shine on it.
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!
All of these things are true - with different levels of poetic license.
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, the Internet, board games, and... well, lots of random things that I can easily get carried away talking about.
-Board games for hours.
-I love my conventions - strap on that cosplay, we're going in.
-There is also crafting involved. I've almost glued my fingers together so many times.
On the professional side; I'm a Network engineering. Took 10 years of work but I've reached an awesome place.
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 the "just one more chapter" effect.
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.
