of course, it would be even better if I weren't roaming the cosmos, y'know, alone... (hint, hint)
I'm definitely an indoorsy, techno-utopian kind of guy who appreciates his hot and cold running internet as well as the many, many virtues of very large televisions. having said that, about once a year I strike out into the untamed wilderness of an unsuspecting state park to go geocaching, camping, canoeing or some such thing.
I'm not anywhere near wealthy but I don't live paycheck-to-paycheck. I pay my bills on time and try to live (mostly) below my means. I'm usually very jeans-and-a-tshirt; my idea of getting dressed up is tucking in my shirt tail. overt status symbols like cars and clothes don't mean that much to me. I don't really care what kind of car you drive or how much money you make.
Various hastily-completed internet checklists inform me that I'm INTJ. If you're into that sort of thing.
Some pointless (or revealing!?) details in no particular order:
I like to push buttons. I like things that light up. I can articulate an informed opinion on a range of topics and spout half-baked nonsense on many more. I find terms like nerd, geek or dork faintly insulting tho I suppose, given common usage, they apply to me. I went to art school. I used to live in Atlanta. I play PS3. I talk with my hands. I'm kind of a stoner. I grew up in the south. I'm grumpy in the morning. I bite my nails.
I'm married to a job in which my every mistake is seen by several hundred thousand people. it's a big part of my life and very important to me. it's technical and often demanding, but it's the path I chose and I mostly like it even when I hate it. it also meshes nicely with my 45 second attention span.
