The old work and hobby bit: I keep the computers running at a hospital for work, I play music with friends (was in band in HS, guitar for 18 years, plink around on or hit anything else I can find), read, play RPGs, listen to music, video games, etc. for fun. I'm not a wild and crazy party guy with a bad-ass attitude. That said, I am also very socially liberal. The OKCupid questions should show us if we have that kind of stuff in common though.
In the long term, I'm trying to arrange my life for both maximum free time and financial security. Less things I have to do and more things I want to do. It can be seen as crass and/or dull to talk finances in a dating profile, but seriously, owning a paid for house and being free of needing to do any sort of day to day grind is a nirvana/goal of mine, and I don't think it is at all impossible. I don't know, its just an area I like to think about. I guess it is all part of the big "What do you want to do with your life?" question we all deal with, and trying not to make bad moves while navigating through it.
Favorite Movies: Big Trouble in Little China, The Princess Bride, Heavenly Creatures, Amelie, The City of Lost Children, Pi, Jacob's Ladder, Master of the Flying Guillotine!, Pale Rider, High Plains Drifter, Conan the Barbarian, The Waking Life
Favorite Shows: In shows it actually leans more towards anime. Nothing too obscure, everything Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop, Wolf's Rain, Case Closed, Lupin the 3rd and the maybe not quite anime Aeon Flux. In live action shows, Star Trek: The Next Generation, M*A*S*H*, The Daily Show, Columbo...

Favorite Foods: Sloppy Joes with Cheese melted on top, Spaghetti with no meat in it and lots of parmesean, scalloped potatoes, French Toast. Nothing too exotic in food to wow you with, but there it is!
