My self-summary
I am a great big ginger nerd. Computers, geeky hobbies, exotic pets who take up too much of my home life; yea that's me. Time not spent reading is often spent writing or mucking about on the computer. My Sunday morning rituals are Tea, releasing the ferrets and watching Dr Who in that order.

I am a PC gamer, not a console gamer, but I enjoy watching others do that. I make things with my hands all the damn time, from food to suits of armor. I have an addiction to Dr Pepper and Earl Grey. Not mixed together!
What I’m doing with my life
I am a full time computer engineer for a managed support/services firm in NYC. Right now I am studying to take various certification courses which will allow me to say 'Pay me more!' without having to wear a suit.

Current creative efforts: Spending at least one hour a night getting my drawing skills back up to snuff. Its a talent I've ignored for too long.

Rolling around on the bicycle! At some stage I also managed to amass a rather nice collection of Whiskey. I recently perfected the Whiskey Milk Shake.
I’m really good at
Dismantling gadgets and putting them back together in such a way they still function!

I can make my own pasta, cook a perfect roast beef and make a kicking White bean and tuna salad. I'm also rather talented at reading the directions on the side panel of Brownie mix boxes.

I've managed to teach my ferrets to poop in a litter pan. If this does not impress you, then you have clearly never had to deal with a tiny animal that has both the shortest attention span in the known universe combined with the fastest metabolism.
The first things people usually notice about me
Ginger, so I'm at least one up on The Doctor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently Reading: Complete works of William Faulker 1926-1932

Books that will always have a place in my library, include but not limited to any of the works by the following: J.L. Borges, Kevin Mitnick, Neal Stephenson, Terry Pratchett, William Gibson, Joe Abercrombie, and the usual host of classical authors. I have a thing for Homer and find myself going back to the Iliad at least once every 2 or 3 years...

Music: I love music of many shapes and sizes, with only a few genres on my 'WTF IS THIS CRAP?' list. I've a deep abiding love of Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Punk Rock (think Sticky Little Fingers and Crass, not this kinder gentler horse shit) Goth Rock, The Beatles and Opeth. I am that person who has stayed up all night discussing the merits of the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and sharing whatever ridiculous rockabilly or electro swing I've lucked into with like minded friends.

An afternoon spent eating oysters and drinking good beer is an afternoon spent well. Currently working on this Quiche - its a shallots, mushrooms and gruyere mix, and I'm pretty sure I almost have it. Just hate having to make my own pastry crusts...
The six things I could never do without
I dont have many needs beyond oxygen and life sustaining basics. After that its all wants. A world without Soft Serve would kinda suck though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Animals. They're fuzzy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting around reading/writing/drawing with some manner of tea, playing with my pets or out with friends enjoying Tiki Drinks and live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I did a victory dance to Roxette in my underpants after I successfully convinced the lady in my life that dating me was in fact a 'Good idea'.
You should message me if
Snarky sense of humor? Recovering goth? Inclined to dance around to 'Dont you want me baby?' even if you are at a funeral? Is the phrase 'eating someones face' complimentary as well as descriptive? You can appreciate why in Book 7 of the Iliad Achilleus is revealed for the whining little shit he truly is? Want someone for more than a temporary basis, sure message me!
