If you're still reading, that's great! I figured I'd get that out of the way first as it is a large part of who I am and what I love.
I am not a religious person, but I do believe in a core set of morals and values that guide my actions. I find no reason to be hateful to others, and help them as much as I am able. If you can make a person smile for no cost, why would you not?
I am a politically-involved person, but do not consider myself "left" or "right"; I evaluate every argument from as many sides as possible, apply as much logic as possible in addition to my own values, and determine an answer from there. This puts me all over the board for individual issues, so you'll have to ask about each subject individually!
You must love dogs if you want to hang out with me. I have a very hyper german shepherd in the family!
My eventual goal is to make a living off my writing, but I enjoy doing it now, even if that never comes to fruition.

Music: My life has a soundtrack.
My Books: If you've read this far, you may already be nodding in agreement at this one.
Dexter: My cat. He's a little bit nuts, and I believe he may be trying to kill me, but I love him to death.
Brain food: Give me a new puzzle or mental challenge any day. Tedium is the mind-killer.
Chocolate: This is self-explanatory.
Conversely, only my primal lizard-brain is functioning in the early morning, as I shamble about like a barley-sentient zombie that can only satisfy his bloodlust with copious amounts of caffeine.
Get to know me, first!
