Now you may be saying "Wait a tic, sir, you haven't said a word about yourself yet!! You are just editorializing!" Technically, you would be correct and LOOK OVER THERE, IT'S A TIGER!
I suppose that I do owe you that self summary now that you have braved a tiger without so much as some fresh fruit to defend yourself. I just moved to Madison recently from Boston (and Chicago before that). I am enjoying my job, settling into the city and trying to meet new people. By day I develop products for a company that makes medical food for people with metabolic errors. By night, I go rock climbing, bicycling, board game playing or out looking for that perfect pint.
I've taste many a fine brew in many a fair city locally and abroad; A few have come close, but the search continues. It's like my own, personal white-whale. Except that I don't need a boat and no one has to die (or float on a coffin).
Movies: Star Wars IV, Blade Runner, Gattaca, V for Vendetta, Matrix (the original), Princess Bride, Muppet Treasure Island, Serenity, Pirates of the Caribbean, Emperors New Groove, The Big Lebowski, Snatch, Spinal Tap, Boondock Saints, Batman Begins, The Life Aquatic, Lost in Translation, and almost everything Monty Python.
Food: I will eat (and enjoy) food from just about anywhere, but I really enjoy Indian food. Good food is one of the finer things in life.
Settlers of Catan, Decent into Darkness, Power Grid, Ticket to Ride, Game of Thrones

I should probably also admit that I edited this profile fairly late at night. Parts of it have gotten far too silly.

...you like food.
