My self-summary
I'm pretty normal. I like cooking, but I love cooking when I have someone to do it with. I've been known to stay up too late because I want to finish a book, but in general I go to bed pretty early. I take mental health days from work so that I can watch matinees or go to the beach, the zoo... etc. I like watching people play video games more than I like playing them, but when I do, I play mostly fantasy RPG. I have two young cats that I hang out with while catching up on Doctor Who or other random shows.

There used to be more here, but it was long and people are fussy about that.

Me in brief: a little bit nerdy, does not like cake, can ride bike, cannot juggle.

Lots of commentary in the Q&A set.

INFJ, apparently.
What I’m doing with my life
I am not a huge fan of this question because I'm not totally sure...

During my 9-5 I do quite a lot of attending meetings, clicking the buttons on my mouse, staring, typing words, and talking to developers.

As far as my "life" goes - Still searching for the best path forward but in the meantime I'm looking to experience the world and make a bunch of spectacular memories.
I’m really good at
• Packing light
• Still feeling like I've overpacked
• Making my bed almost every day
• Dancing when no one is looking
• Taking side streets
• I also have lovely penmanship
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends. If they see me, it is probably that I am short. If they hear me, it is probably my laugh, or my sneeze. I don't normally ask people what they first notice about me, and I'm not very likely to do the research, so it's all a guessing game here folks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books are so good! Let's just list Authors though: Tom Holt, Jasper Fforde, Terry Pratchett, A. Lee Martinez, Jack Kerouac, Cory Doctorow, Clive Barker, Christopher Buckley, Christopher Moore, Ernest Cline, Neal Stephenson, Brandon Mull, Robert Rankin, Douglas Adams, J.R.R. Tolkien, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Hugh Howey, Laurie R. King, Kurt Vonnegut, Orson Scott Card, Neil Gaiman, Max Barry... more more more

Movie Genres: I generally like comedies, dramas, science fiction, and thrillers. I really don't like gory movies/torture porn. Years ago I was *forced* to go watch Dawn of the Dead, and still sometimes have scary dreams that incorporate imagery from that movie.

Music: Spotify Playlist

Food: I like pretty much all kinds, but have been thinking about this recently and if forced to choose one type of food to eat forever would select "curry" as this selection is nebulous and changeable enough that my mouth would never get bored.
Six things I could never do without
• Something to look forward to
• Corrective lenses
• A sense of place
• Something to read
• Interesting questions/Great conversations
• Streams, lakes, rivers, oceans...
• A pressurized cabin
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What new recipe can I make, Why is japanese eggplant so good, What book should I read next, Why does Arnold Schwarzenegger always looks slightly insane, How often do WWE storylines intersect with the performers real lives, Should I have an opinion about Inside the Actor's Studio, Why do I always end up in the backwards facing seats on trains?
On a typical Friday night I am
I keep it pretty simple and close to home on a "typical" Friday night. I'm not opposed to going out, but don't enjoy very crowded spaces or yelling to have a conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The most private thing? Naw. Here are some not-terribly-private things:

I have a cache of blank cards so that I don't have to run to the store if I find myself suddenly needing one. I've never been to the Grand Canyon. I don't really care for pizza. I'd like to take a hot air balloon ride. I've never met a puppy that didn't make me say "Awww." I might be afraid of heights. I always request a window seat, but leave the shade down pretty much the whole time. I've been known to drink on a Monday. I travel semi-regularly for work.
You should message me if
...any of the above sounds interesting and you would like to get together for some coffee, a drink, a game of pool, or... I don't know... anything else that sounds like a fun thing for two relative strangers to do together. Also if you are tall. Everyone LOOKS pretty tall to me but... if you are tall for real. I can't reach a lot of stuff in my cupboards, or on top of my fridge.
