My self-summary
A well-travelled guy who has seen much of the world. I spend most of the day in front of a computer for my job, so I enjoy getting out and getting a bit of exercise.

I also like to bake every now and then, and I daresay I'm not half bad at it. I've been playing around with a couple cookie recipes, as well as a delightful confection called a flapper pie, which as of yet no one I know outside of my immediate family knows of.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I'm working as a software developer with people I like in a job that doesn't give give me grief, which I consider to be a pretty lucky position to be in.
I’m really good at
Computery stuff, making nanaimo bars, cooking too much food, understatement, and taking the bus. Also, I'm a whiz at teaching people how to play board games.
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent, definitely. It's toned down from when I was a child, but still noticeable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I always enjoy Terry Pratchett (RIP), Stephen King, and the Song of Ice and Fire series (when they do come out), typically while commuting. When given the time to sit down, I like to catch up on some shows - big fan of a lot of comedies and dramas like Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Community, and Fringe, among others.
The six things I could never do without
My friends, to keep me sane,
my phone, to keep me in touch,
a shower, to keep me clean,
a computer, to keep me entertained,
and a good pasta dish.
Other than that...a good pair of pants. Pants are good.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I can make for dinner, what I'm going to do when I get home, and how to improve a chocolate chip cookie recipe (which I have gotten a few suggestions for lately, thanks to those who've suggested options)
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing, realizing that I've got two whole days ahead of me to do whatever the I want, and usually unwinding with a good show.

I often go out with with friends too, enjoying a board game or some pizza. Really, Fridays are my lazy evenings, I'm much more active every other day of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to cross-stitch. Mostly for gifts.
