I am happy-go-lucky and winsome. I expect for things to always work out for the best. I suppose that makes me a bit of an optimist.
Oh, and I just started doing gymnastics. It's a lot of fun, even if I'm not very good at it. There are people there doing all sorts of crazy things which just leave me in awe, and a little embarrassed while I struggle with my handstand. Eventually, eventually I'll get there. I know I will. I've also started running, and ugh, it's taken me several months just to be comfortable running a quarter mile without my feet or ankles or knees killing me, but hopefully now I can kick it into a higher gear. Maybe if I get good enough at both I can move towards trying out Parkour which seems like a lot of fun.
Music-wise I have a pretty broad spectrum of what I listen to, but I just discovered AWOLNATION; absolutely fantastic and if you haven't listened to it, you should give it a try. Otherwise, I'll listen to anything from the Decemberists to Nightwish or Blind Guardian and Diablo Swing Orchestra. About the only thing I absolutely can't stand are Country and Rap, and even there there might be 1 or 2 exceptions; for example Cup of Brown Joy by Elemental.
My favorite movies and books are far too numerous to list but as a small sampling. Books: A Song of Ice and Fire, the Dresden Files, DragonLance, the Cold Fire Trilogy, anything by Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, and recently Martin Millar.
Movies:The Flight of Dragons (probably had more influence on me than any other movie from my childhood and if you haven't seen it I highly recommend changing that right now.) The Last Unicorn, Legend, anything by Stephen Chow with my current favorite being Kung Fu Hustle. Oh, and I just don't like zombie movies.

Oh, and hair. I think about hair way, way too much. But I just love it and at times wish I was a girl just for the hair.
