As a epilogue to that: I'm a laid back and more of a homebody. I don't do the bar scene and I can easily enjoy a night in watching a good tv show or movie. On the weekends my tastes vary, but I prefer being with good people and doing different stuff (variety being the spice of life).
I love talking about meaty subjects (chit chat tends to bore me) and I have yet to find a conversation that offends me (I dare anyone to try)
I'm a geek and enjoy almost anything sci-fi, whether it be a game, movie or TV show. I am a software engineer by trade so you can lump in 'techy' as well.
I once wanted to be a Vet and continue to love animals, cat's especially. The aforementioned job is a developer position at a pet insurance company so the synergy is pretty high in my opinion.
I'm enjoying gardening and growing vegetables. I'm hoping I'll have a good crop, though the tomatoes are looking a little sorry.
Lastly, I'm a fan of motorcyles and taking short rides. One day I'll get the nerve to get a cruiser and go on long rides with my dad, but until then I am content to meet up with friends and commute to work (when it's not freezing out).
In essence I'm a bit shy at first, but honest.
In essence I'm working hard, hanging with friends and just enjoying the youth that I'm thankful to have.
In my free time I enjoy board games or catching the latest movie/tvshow/dvd.
I love riding my motorcycle and have been meeting up with a local Buell group for the past few months. What I like most is that you're more aware of the world around you... all the distractions that you might have in a car melt away. There's no annoying radio, cellphone or chatty backseat drivers. It's just you and the road. I find that my mind tends to be clear of cluttered thoughts and I gain new perspective on what it's like to truly live. In a car you get so distracted by the music, the cell phones and the general feeling that you are just letting the machine know when not to crash. On a bike it's more like soaring through the air. It's seriously a rush and something I'd recommend to anyone.
On the horizon I'd love to try sky diving, hang gliding, and anything else that gives a chance to spread my wings.
On top of all that I'm loving the world of 'Home Ownership' and boy does stress me out sometimes. Who knew that escrows and taxes and all the other goodies in store for you when you decide to buy a house would be so fun!
I'm pretty good at picking up new skills. Like the aforementioned motorcycle.
Generally anything involving machines I can learn fairly quickly.
I love cooking.
I'm a good listener. I love hearing the stories people have to tell. But please keep the depressing/drama stuff to a minimum.
I usually stick to tech manuals or the occasional philosophy book. Right now I bought one called, "If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill him!" and look forward to it. I'm also a rabid fan of wikipedia.
Amelie, Batman (does it matter which? They all rocked). Serenity. Star Wars/Trek, Ironman, anything Vampire related (insert Blade, Buffy, Innocent Blood, etc..), Fight Club, Clash of the Titans, Labyrinth, Indiana Jones, Transformers, too many more to list...
But just because something isn't listed doesn't mean I don't like it. I can get into a lot of movies... anything scifi, action, or deep tends to pique my interest.
I love Pandora.com and the radio, but just about any music I can get into except heavy rap. Lets see... VNV Nation, Evanescence, Depeche Mode, DJ Tiesto, BT, Motorcycle, Stunt, No Doubt, Linkin Park, Bush, Cranberries, Garbage, Jem, Nightwish, Offspring, Snake River Conspiracy, Nickleback, Fireflight, Quietdrive, just to name a few... and the list grows everyday.
I love any show where I can learn something so Mythbusters or documentaries in general catch my eye. Plus fantasy genres like Game of Thrones or True Blood are pretty cool. I'm also a geek so most SciFi will get me rockin, but I have a special place in my heart for Firefly :D Farscape and Stargate :) Lately I've gotten into Fringe and so far I've been really impressed. Oh and let's not forget Dr Who
I like just about anything without vegetables, but I LOVE sushi
Asian, Italian or Mexican makes me a happy clam. Pho, teriyaki and such are safe bets too.
I also love to cook, so far I've tried making curries, sushi and various asian dishes.
my 2 adorably annoying cats
Improving the world
Mucking with the house
Finding new ways to have fun
Pondering the meaning of various things, like:
"It's not who i am underneath, but what I do that defines me... yet at the same time it is who i am underneath that defines what i do"
I love trying new things so if you have something awesome and you'd like a partner in crime, count me in.
