I got through three years of college as a philosophy major before someone told me there were NOT hundreds of companies out there willing to pay a six-figure salary for a corporate philosopher. I was devastated. Fortunately, back in high school I had discovered an aptitude for making computers do my bidding, so when I left school due to a lack of funds I was able to build a successful career in that field. Now that retirement age is only a few years away, I'm starting to think about taking up a second career. I could devote myself to music full time. But I also think I'd be good at law....
Movies I've really liked: The Princess Bride, Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet, Ghostbusters (only the first one!), Airplane (ditto), Casablanca, Citizen Kane, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away (first saw it in Paris with French subtitles), Blade Runner, Romancing the Stone.
I like most food. Oriental cuisines are a favorite - as far as ingredients go, I especially like fish, duck, lamb, and salad.
My coffee maker.
My Swiss Army Knife (no, they don't all start with C) - forget the damn American Express card, this is what you don't leave home without.
You can deal with someone as peculiar as I am (or even better, you are as peculiar as I am).
