My job can be intellectually stimulating, if boring in subject, unless you like statistics :) It does allow me a flexible schedule, but I prefer to spend my free time reading fantasy or philosophy. And cooking.
I also know a unsettling amount of useless facts and anecdotes and can be counted on the insert an obscure reference into any conversation.
I am also an avid PC Gamer and am always looking for interesting indie titles
There are too many books to list since I am a unabashed bibliophile. If I had to name some favorite authors it would be Kurt Vonnegut, Terry Pratchett and Neal Stephenson.
"The Golden Bough," Read this many times but I keep picking it up again.
"The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," Edward Gibbon
"Metaphors we live by," Lakoff and Johnson
"Dust of Dreams." Steven Erikson
I also love video games, especially PC. I don't have as much time to spend on this as I would like, but still enjoy when I can.
