I'm a fairly run-of-the-mill, average guy with a few quirks (but aren't we all?). I'm a self-avowed geek; I read and watch lots of science fiction and volunteer for a local science fiction convention called Polaris and the affiliated Constellation Awards.
Yeah, like I said... I'm a geek.
But I also enjoy watching sports, which is unusual in the gay community, but I'm not the type to just sit on the couch and veg with a beer and a bowl of chips. I enjoy watching baseball (the Blue Jays) and am a big hockey fan (Go Leafs Go!), which is ironic because I can't skate. (I own a pair of skates and want to learn, but haven't gotten around to it.) Oh, and I bowl in a league, too.
And just to make myself sound more stereotypical, I enjoy theatre, especially musicals. I once auditioned for the Broadway production of Rent (though I didn't know it was the Broadway production until after I was finished - I was just there to keep a friend company).
I've also been told by a number of people that I resemble John Simm. I've also been mistaken for John Hodgman on more than one occasion - don't ask me, I don't understand either.
Movies: Whacked out comedies like "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," "Clue," "Noises Off", "Murder By Death" and pretty much anything from Mel Brooks. Star Trek, of course. The Star Wars (original trilogy, thank you), X-Men and Lord of the Rings films.
TV: My TV is almost always tuned to Space. Again, Star Trek is a favourite, even though I've seen them all about a billion times. Sanctuary, Doctor Who and Torchwood are also featured on my viewing schedule. While I don't go out of my way to watch The Listener, Eureka or Merlin, I'll happily watch them too when they're on. I thought Lost was brilliant. When I'm not watching Space, I'm usually watching a sporting event or Wipeout (a guilty pleasure). I've lost track of House, though I'm still buying the DVDs and will catch up eventually. I'm slowly getting caught up on True Blood as well.
I have zero interest in reality shows. If I want reality, I'll look around me, not at the TV.
Music: I'm most likely to be found listening to Pet Shop Boys and Erasure, though I like Franz Ferdinand and Rufus Wainwright. I used to have a lot of Billy Idol and Jethro Tull albums as well, but they went missing and I haven't replaced them yet. Okay, I'll admit that I listen to Lady Gaga too.
Food: Pasta, steak, and British pub fare. I've recently developed a taste for sushi, though I'm still reliant on other people to do the ordering.
