I can be very boisterous and silly but am sometimes quiet around new people, depending on my mood.
I don't like trivia. I find it trivial..
Humorous irony = <3
Populist/socialist/anarchist/commie bastard, with too much snark for his own good, but I'm a sweetie when I'm not completely exasperated with the world.
Books are awesome.
Animals are awesome.
Outside is awesome.
Touching is the best -- I was a dancer and a philosopher, so I know it's true.
Here there be dragons
Cooking. I like using my hands and my own creativity to make a final product, and since I love food as well I've found that cooking is one of my favorite pastimes, even if I don't get to do it properly often enough.
Listening to what other people are communicating, not just what is said but how, with what body language, tone of voice, etc. I once heard once that something like 70+% of communication is non-verbal, and I would totally agree. I'm super intuitive, but I'll reason with the best of them.
Being inflammatory. I will push all your buttons. Including the fun ones. Presuming you're into that ;)
Murakami, Vonnegut, George Lakoff (linguist / political philosopher.. he's the shit), George R. R. Martin (I love authors who kill off characters), Lois McMaster Bujold, Guy Gavriel Kay, C. J. Cherryh (and no, I have no idea how she pronounces that).
Specific titles include Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, and The Great Book of Amber by Roger Zelazny, which boasts the best cosmology I've ever read.
Music. Hard question, I know very little about music but I love it! Short answer: Pandora is my DJ. Seriously, I am so confused by modern music genre definitions. I can tell you I love Fun -- they remind me of Queen. I like music that focuses on the semiotic. There's no reason you should know what that means, but if perchance you do, you get points.
My favorite food is:
-Big bloody pieces of dead animals. The little cute ones taste the best :P Vegetarians, that's supposed to be a joke! Es funny joke..
-Things with really flavorful sauces in general, curries, pastas, stir fries, glazes. I recently made a bearnaise sauce for the first time and it came out perfectly! Shut up, I'm proud of that.
-Cheese! Dairy! I don't care if it's supposedly bad for me, I could live off it.
-My favorite food however is food I've cooked myself for other people. It's hard to be my friend and avoid dinner parties and grilling excursions. I will make food for you, and you will like it. It's just what I do.
I could make it without the internet, I'd just cry a lot. Without coffee I'll stab you, so you may not make it even if I would.
