I love to read and to talk about books. I'm a bit of a video game nerd. I enjoy TV, both the scifi-perhaps-intellectual stuff as well as some silly reality TV stuff.
I am still sort of figuring out where I fall on the monogamous-to-polyamorous spectrum. I guess I'd basically say that I'm open-minded, and probably don't fall strictly into either category.
I enjoy kink, but I do not live the lifestyle 24/7.
I enjoy: spending time with friends, board games, reading, video games, hanging out with my cats, lamenting my lack of motivation to clean my apartment, etc.
Listening to and being there for people.
Writing Excel VBA macros. (A blessing and a curse.)
Upon entering my apartment, people tend to comment on my plethora of penguins, and the large quantity of books.
When meeting me, I think people probably tend to notice (physically) my glasses and (personality) that I'm fairly talkative for a self-described introvert.
Movies: Cube and sequels, Alien and sequels, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Empire Records. I'm also a sucker for bank robbery movies, zombie movies, and disaster movies.
TV: Outstanding favorites include: Star Trek (all incarnations), Babylon 5, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, West Wing, Firefly, Samurai Champloo, X-Files, and most reality TV competition type shows (we all get one guilty pleasure, right?)
Music: Almost anything - I'm really not picky. Recently I've been listening a lot to my "bluesy, funky, jazzy" and "Dance around like a fool" Pandora stations.
Food: I'm not too picky, but especially like: vegetarian/pescetarian (I am eating red meat again these days but still mostly opt for veggies), sushi, Indian, Thai, Burmese, French, ...
Video Games: I like video games in a number of genres, ranging from "casual" phone games to epic RPGs. I'm particularly taken by economic/cultural/nation-building simulation games (Anno 1701 and so forth), but there are so few good ones out there. Settlers II remains a perennial favorite, even if I have to run a VM to play it.
Board/Card Games: Classics like Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, Carcasonne, and recently have been really enjoying 7 Wonders, Betrayal on the House on the Hill, Bohnanza.
- You really like board games
- You find something about my profile fascinating
While I apparently "reply selectively", if you send me a thoughtful message, I will more than likely respond to it.
And while I don't like to be negative, you should not message me if:
- You don't like cats (I have several, they aren't going anywhere)
- You are socially conservative (fiscal conservatism is a-ok)
- Religion plays a large role in your life
- You have or want children
