My self-summary
I'll freely confess to being a geek, in case being a scientist isn't enough, I can also point to my bookcase and a big pile of board games (which could probably be bigger if I wasn't used to relying on friends' collection). Though it doesn't quite fit the stereotypes, I can also geek out about music pretty well.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm about to be finishing up a post-doc at Texas A&M. I'm looking for teaching or biotech research jobs
I’m really good at
Beer making
Dancing - used to do swing a lot, but out of practice, been learning salsa
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - American Gods, Brave New World,Lucretius' On the Nature of the Universe (Epicurean philosophy), The Ancestors Tale. Fun reading tends to be science fiction/fantasy though I'll read plenty of other things that catch my attention

Movies - Gattaca, Pan's Labyrinth, O Brother Where Art Thou. Usually prefer dramas and more absurd comedy.

Music - I like listening to all sorts, especially to find new stuff. Interest tends to be forms of indie rock, blues, folk, or things that mix genres. Favorites change with my mood, but 5 random from my playlist - Neko Case, Manu Chao, Chatham County Line, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, Django Reinhardt
The six things I could never do without
Books
Something to play music
A way to escape from civilization every once and a while
My computer (at least for more than short term)
Hmm, apparently my needs are easily met, if I can't come up with 6 without resorting to something like "food"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My experiments
things I've been reading lately
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie
Reading
playing board games
going out to a music show (though lately that's more of a Saturday night, for making a trip into Austin and having all day to hang out)
