I am quite silly and LOVE both laughing and making others laugh.
Nicknames and new terms for things naturally pop into my brain and I seem to have a definite drive for nomenclature and terminology in all areas of knowledge I come in contact with.
I'm good at taking pictures. I wish my eyes were digital cameras as well so I wouldn't have to carry mine everywhere (go cyborgization!).
Not to be left out I often annoy my friends with situation-appropiate song quotes which I promptly sing to them, so I am good at remembering these silly things. The Rocky Horror and Shock Treatment soundtracks are particular favorites.
I'm not really good at it, but I love music and like to play the harmonica.
In short, most people would say I'm a knowledge nerd but I identify mostly with a geek-dork mix.

* I teeter between shyness and extroversion though I can seem a little *too* quiet upon first meetings and received as weird and standoffish. I don't object to the first, but the second's not really me in general ;P
* If I were to be put into a category of social role, I'm probably (once I warm up) "the silly one".
* I believe I am more "European" than "American" in my views of politics, society, culture, etc. I'd love to live there in the not too distant future. Though I have to say I feel more like a "citizen of the world" than anything. I love culture but I'm not into nationalism at all.
* I'm actually 5' 11" 1/2 but OKC doesn't take halves.
* I wear glasses (OMG SHE SAID IT)
