I like to say that I know a little about a lot of things. Of course, being a geek, there's a good number of things that I know WAY too much about. I try to shield others from the worst of those obsessions.
I like words and collect them like curios. I'm always looking for an excuse to bust out an obscure but perfectly apropos one.
I moved to Seattle about five years ago and it's the first place that I intentionally moved to. I'm trying to put down roots in my adopted city. That means friends, relationships, etc. Honestly feels a little unnerving to think about the future and not have to wonder where I'll be living a year down the road.
I like to laugh and entertain people with my dry humor. On a good day this can be incredibly charming and endearing. On a bad day I can come off really creepy.
I really like Cohen brothers' comedies (Intolerable Cruelty, O Brother, Where art Thou? and especially The Big Lebowski). Their dramas, not so much.
I'm absolutely obsessed with anything written by Aaron Sorkin (Sports Night, Charlie Wilson's War, West Wing). His dialogue style is intoxicating.
If you really want to get a feel for my personality, here are some of the webcomics I enjoy: Penny Arcade, XKCD, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, Dork Tower, PvP and Questionable Content.
If I didn't have Internet access of some sort (computer, smartphone, whatever) I'd feel a bit lost. Not being able to look up the primary social contributions of Gore Vidal on a whim would feel like I had a limb amputated.
Do different colored M&M's really taste different?
My next travel destination.
Let's assume I'm not working. There's a better than average chance I'm playing games (video, board, RPG, what-have-you). If that bit of nerdery didn't scare you off, well, thanks for reading this far.
I like going out to eat with friends, seeing movies, bowling. I don't usually like spending too much time alone or I get a bit stir-crazy.
Alternatively, if you want to introduce me to new, geeky things.
