My self-summary
It is all Maya including me.

Who is more qualified to tell what I am, thee or me??
My answer would be very slanted in my favor. You might see me as something else entirely.

If I knew what you found interesting in men and I possessed that characteristic, then I would write about that, but I don't know whether you would be interested in my muscles or in my brain.
What I’m doing with my life
Everything I do, I do with my life.
I would love to do some things with another life.

A collection of my short stories will become available online next week, fourteen stories about 70,000 words.
I am working on a sequel to the novel that I finished a few months ago. I'll have to wait and see how this one will be. The first one is, in my opinion, very good. It has most of the things that a good novel should have, and I think it is nicely written. One person who read part of it commented that she would love to meet the woman that the protagonist's wife is based on. I think that means that someone thought I created a very good character. I am in the process of selling that novel, but it may end up self-published.

I have started a campaign to be acclaimed Emperor. One of my promises is that when I become Emperor I will eliminate all holidays in the calendar reform that will eliminate months and weeks. We will simply use the Julian number.
I’m really good at
In reality I am kind, and playful
I am not completely unlike a well trained puppy.
But I really don't know what I am especially good at, if anything.
Let me know.
The first things people usually notice about me
I recently learned that many people notice my mustache before anything else, but I don't know whether that was the first thing that they noticed, or if it is the first thing that they wanted to mention. I am curious as to which.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite is "Studies in Causation: Memoirs of a Time Traveller" by me.
I have read a fair number of books, and I enjoyed most of them. It is my opinion that The Ship that Sailed the Time Stream by G.C. Edmondson was the best novel of the 20th century.

I an not generally into movies, because they are too simple, but there have been a few exceptions.

I am not a music fan per se, but I love good lyric poetry and some harmonic music. Several months ago I learned of the existence of the late Laura Allan. She was an excellent poetess, and I love her poetry very much; I wish that I could tell her that, but she died in 2008. Consider the sadness of her song "Looking for the Right One".
Then there were the Stone Poneys

Food is good, and I like it within reason.
The six things I could never do without
oxygen
Food
garlic
good conversation
good wine
etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I regularly think about the fact that all actions in the universe are determined. The laws of physics and logic require that there be causes for effects, and the chain of cause and effect stretches back to the Big Bang (and before), and we can't notice the fact that our decisions were determined more than 13 billion years ago.

I don't know the details of why, but that is why I am typing this right now. But I recently learned that there is solid evidence that the Many Worlds Interpretation is correct, and the universe may not determined, but it bifurcates when necessary. This knowledge was rather liberating to me. Then I learned that there may be determinism through all of the branches of the Multiverse taken together. It doesn't make any difference whether there is determinism, because all possible (or reasonably probable) events will happen in one universe or another.
On a typical Friday night I am
Treating the time the same as I would any other day. I am egalitarian.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What is private?
Don't they say that privacy ended with Facebook?
I can't think of anything that I have as especially private. If you have any specific question along these lines, then ask.
You should message me if
you are inspired to do so, or if you have nothing better to do.
