I can be kind of a random person, but I try not to let my ADD take hold too much. I play Hockey and practice Wing Chun Kung Fu. I read. A lot. My room may or may not closely resemble a library. I try my hand at writing occasionally, but don't really make a huge habit of it. I put cheese on my head to watch football, and a winged wheel on my shirt to watch hockey. I'm comfortable in most social settings and don't mind getting my hands dirty to help people that I care about.
As I said above, I recently crossed the country from the east coast. I've never experienced an earthquake. It seems kind of terrifying and boring at the same time. I mean what's the point of a natural disaster if you can't throw a party during it? Hurricanes obviously trump earthquakes in fun. I'm having fun doing all of the stuff you can't do in Florida, like climb a mountain or leave the house in July.
I work in Information Technology as a Unix Admin at a company in San Mateo. I've love tinkering with computers and solving problems.
Impromptu troubadour, "that's what she said" dropper, video/tabletop gamer, adventurer extraordinaire. I'm a relatively open book. Ask me anything.
I'm always working on expanding my horizons educationally, mostly through books on different programming languages. PL/SQL and C# are on the docket right now. I have a severe love for troubleshooting issues, be they personal or technological. I've started to pick up Chinese again, but am by no means even close to what anyone would call fluent.
I end up playing psychologist to my friends a lot (part of that troubleshooting habit) . Apparently I'm a really good second opinion. Or first opinion. Or opinion. Whatever, don't judge me.
I would like to become proficient at a musical instrument. I own a cheap ocarina and wouldn't mind learning to play the drums.
Movies: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Clerks, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Short Circuit, Mallrats, The Princess Bride, Flight of the Navigator, The Mask, The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, So I Married an Axe Murderer, Serenity, Super Mario Bros., Boondock Saints, Star Wars
Music: 90's rock (seriously, give me the XM/Sirius station Lithium and I can just sit and listen to it all day), Metallica, Shinedown, Tonic, Flyleaf, ocremix, Nobuo Uematsu, Koji Kondo, Classically Arranged Video Game Music, Foo Fighters, Empty Hats, System of a Down, Pink Floyd, Silverchair, The Protomen, Jonathan Coulton, Death Cab For Cutie, Mumford & Sons, Fuel, Stone Temple Pilots, Bit Brigade, Minibosses, most nerdcore stuff, etc etc
I also enjoy a smattering of Anime/Cartoons. Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note, Beet, Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple, Avatar the last Airbender/Legend of Korra
Food: I have a weakness for pizza, but I'll eat anything. I've recently developed a taste for spicy food (comes from working with a lot of guys from India) and I really enjoy anything ethnic.
TV: How I Met Your Mother, Always Sunny, Scrubs, 2 and a Half Men, Doctor Who, Sherlock - I don't watch a ton of TV because I'm way too ADD to sit still long enough by myself and do it unless the show is phenomenal. There are, however, a crap-load of shows I need to watch. If anyone wants to have TV viewing parties, I'm 100% down. Also wouldn't mind being recommended some shows.
2 - Someone to talk to / Laugh with
3 - Books
4 - A challenge
5 - Games
6 - Music
I also spend a lot of time thinking that bunnies aren't just cute like everybody supposes. They've got those hoppy legs and twitchy little noses. And what's with all the carrots? What do they need such good eyesight for anyway?
You want to go on an adventure. I'm new to this area so I'm looking to explore.
You're bored and looking for someone fun to ramble at.
You play tabletop and need an extra player.
You've ever been to Dragon*Con or MAGFest or Nerdapalooza.
