I've been called a nerd on more than one occasion. While I once hated the label, I've come to embrace it: I see myself less as a Steve Urkel clone, and more as an aspiring Richard Feynman or Duncan Steel. If you see this as a positive, we have much to discuss.
Physically, I would make a good deep-cover agent - I'm a completely average-looking white guy. Brown hair, brown eyes, average height, the whole shebang. In an attempt to combat this averageness, I try to do inventive things with my facial hair. Oh, and I wear glasses (and think I look better in them.)
In a movie theater or video store, you'll find me near movies with good special effects, movies with good plots, or foreign films. The most recent movie I watched in a theater was Black Swan, and I thought it was excellent (though I didn't figure it out till close to the end).
I don't watch a lot of tv, but most of what I watch is animated or comedy. I grew up on the Simpsons, and I'm a fan of Seth MacFarlane's shows. I also have a weak spot for crime and forensics dramas, but friends tell me that I talk to the tv too much during them (I can't help it if Sara Sidle can't do her job properly!)
My taste in music leans towards classical: Beethoven, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, etc. I'm a former choir geek, so I have a soft spot in my heart for really good choral pieces. I'm not trapped in the 19th century, though; I'm a huge fan of Queen, and I love blues and jazz.
I've got to confess that I'm a total foodie. I love to cook, and I'm usually pretty happy with the end product. Recently, I started teaching myself to cook Indian food, with mixed results. I'll gladly go to almost any kind of restaurant, and I've yet to taste food I don't enjoy. Of course, since good food is best when complemented with good drink, I've got a few favorites in beer and wine. A good hefeweizen is my preferred beer (especially localish SoCal breweries like Karl Strauss); for wines, I usually drink whites, but I'm trying to branch out into reds and roses.
New experiences, particularly new foods to try, are vital.
A world without music is not a world in which I'd care to live.
My bike, aside from being my best form of transportation, is also my favorite kind of exercise. I can live without it, but I'd really rather not.
As it turns out, I'm a caffeine addict in denial. Ask me about my recovery plan! (It may include getting coffee or tea with you.)
... I'll come back with more answers, I promise.
I think about ethics and society quite a lot. I feel a drive to improve the things I see around me, and so I think a lot about how one might make the world a happier, better place on a large scale.
Lately, I've also been thinking about how, from an epistemological standpoint, I can be sure that my thoughts are my own.
There's an equally-good chance I'm home, enjoying a little relaxation - reading, listening to music, maybe a glass of scotch. I'm good, either way.
