Wait...never mind, that's the Doctor. Moving on!
I'm pretty shy around people I don't know well, and still kind of quiet around my friends.
I'm a smart-ass.
I like reading up on myths and legends from around the world, comparing and contrasting them. I really enjoyed Greek mythology when I was a kid, then branched out into Egyptian, Celtic, and Norse (which is probably my favorite).
I'm interested in how languages evolve, and I think Grimm's Law is pretty cool.
I donate platelets on a regular basis. Sometimes, they're even *my* platelets!
I really like playing tabletop games. Some of my favorites are "Magic: the Gathering", "The Resistance", "Concept", and "Sentinels of the Multiverse". I'm also playing in a weekly "Dungeons & Dragons" game.
I'm pretty funny--mostly in a "ha-ha" kind of way, but also in a "that guy's sorta weird" kind of way.
The Eleventh Doctor is my hero.
I'm trying to improve myself, developing better physical habits (eating better, trying to get regular exercise) and mental ones (learning not to beat myself up over every little thing, becoming aware of my biases and correcting them, etc.); it's slow going on both fronts, but progress is progress.
Movies: The original Star Wars trilogy, "Dragonheart", and "Field of Dreams".
Television shows: "Doctor Who", "Psych", "Futurama", "Community" and "Avatar: the Last Airbender" are all great, and I will watch them whenever someone suggests doing so. I also have a soft spot for "Firefly", "Wonderfalls", and "Dead Like Me".
Music: The Doubleclicks and Gaelic Storm are my favorite groups, although I'm also a fan of Ingrid Michaelson, the Beatles, Jim Croce, the Cranberries, and Jonathan Coulton, among others.
Food: Chili, dirty rice, Honey Nut Cheerios, PB&J, ice cream (especially vanilla or mint chocolate chip), pie (especially blueberry or cherry)--preferably not all mixed together. My favorite dish these days is a sort of chicken, rice, and broccoli casserole that one of my friends taught me to make a few years ago.

As for myself, I was in my late twenties when I had my first kiss.*
Also, I'm a werewolf.**
