No longer poly, folks. I'll keep this profile active in case anyone wants to be friends
To get the ball rolling:
I love computers, debating, cooking, eating, and making a fool of myself. I'm a voracious reader. I don't own a TV but I have netflix so it doesn't count. I frequently make horrible puns, and I'm unapologetic about it.
I am a well rounded nerd -- I'm equally comfortable comparing the merits of Linux distros, discussing my favorite Kafka short stories, or examining the biomechanics of a proper deadlift.
I am on a quest for the perfect seitan recipe.
By night I am trying to expand my circle of friends. I moved to Seattle recently and I'm having a bit of trouble meeting new people.
On the side I'm studying for the GRE biochem subject test; it'll be 2.5 hours of pure awesome. If anyone's taken it, please message me with tips. I'll bake you cookies.
I also like riding my bike everywhere. Moving to Capitol hill has made me realize I can adapt to pretty much any hill given time.
I've forgotten half of what I learned in college, but I can recall Street Sharks episodes with perfect clarity (they're jawsome!)
I read a ridiculous amount of sci fi. Mostly pulpy stuff that I can't remember the authors of, but I really enjoy Neal Stephenson, Heinlein, Herbert, and Gene Wolfe.
Bonk: The curious coupling of science and sex
The Culture Series
Latro of the Mist
Some all time favorites:
Proust was a Neuroscientist
Confederacy of Dunces
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
A Song of Ice and Fire
I listen to a huge range of music, from Squarepusher to Stevie Wonder to Blue Scholars to Monsters of Folk. Right now Menomena, Rogue Wave, and Horrorshow are getting a lot of play.
As far as movies and TV, I like the usual -- Dexter, Venture Bros, Firefly, BSG, Arrested Devlopment, The IT Crowd, etc etc.
Oh man I just discovered that OKTrends blog. The math of dating? I'm there.

-- Or, alternatively, you'd like to talk to a pretty rad person.
-- You think Batman is a superhero, and you'd like to make fun of all the pedants who disagree.
-- You think Batman isn't a superhero (just because he has no super powers? Pfft), and would like to debate the issue.
