"Do what I tell you."
"I'm not interested."
These are just some of the things you'll hear if you answer this ad. I'm an idiot and I don't care about anyone except myself.
P.S.: No dogs!
If anyone can guess from which British sitcom the above piece comes from, you can get a cookie as a reward.
Aside from that, I'm an employed graphic artist who also fancies himself as a writer and all around creative individual. Most of my writing at the moment centers around PBeM games, but I'm slowly changing that. I enjoy science fiction, cartoons, and history of all things. I enjoy pen and paper rpg's...
Oh, and I like to cook, though oddly enough not for myself. I've always done better when I cook for others—even it's only for one other (hint-hint). I have less concern for myself, even if it would save money.
Who would be my ideal counterpart? Good question. I don't think there's a single answer to that. As far as the type of relationship I dream about? I don't want Romeo and Juliet. I want Gomez and Morticia Addams! They knew how to live and love.
I'm finally re-immersing myself into the con scene—at least a little bit. My first experience after so many years was a good one. While I'm not up to traveling to every con across the state (yet), I am up for the little cons. Clockwork Alchemy's great. Fanime…a wee bit overwhelming, but I like to visit.
I'm finally in a place where, once I stop procrastinating, I can start pursuing the advancement of my skill set. I'm a good graphic designer, but print is easy. Web is hard…and it shouldn't be this hard. I'm looking to fix that.
And that's where I am so far.
Pretty decent cook; I can even make fondue, but I prefer making tacos.
I can really stay in character when I'm playing an RPG.
Writing. I like writing stuff, from short stories to PBeM contributions.
History, especially about WAR! GLORIOUS WAR! I blame this last part on the early days of the History Channel. I was seriously unemployed back then, and that's what I watched a lot of.

My steamer trunk full of costume bits
