I am new to the greater Boston area and looking to meet people!
Personally, I'm a gamer. I love going to conventions and tournaments when I can, and love competitive gaming and spectating professional matches.
Ironically, despite reading other people well, the words I say sometimes don't express what I mean. I get myself into trouble by misspeaking a lot.
I often have people calling me an idiot while laughing and rolling their eyes. There is a fine line between genius and insanity - I try to take that line and draw something with it!

Food: Favorite cuisines include Thai (beef fried rice), Korean (bulkogi), and Japanese (sushi). But I'll never turn down a rare steak or a nice goat cheese salad! Or a meat lovers omelet, or a veggie pizza, or a Californian Sandwich on Multigrain, or... I love trying new places! (<- date idea hint)
Almonds, beef jerky, and dried fruit - I often get cranky in the mid-morning and late afternoon without a snack.
A blanket that isn't tucked in so I can stick my feet out when i sleep - I swear, all temperature regulation comes through my feet at night...
Internet access - Over half of what I do for work and relaxing at home involves the internet.
Verbal or mental sparring. Whether they are well-written characters, a skilled opponent, or a clever friend, I need someone to engage and sharpen my mind with.
I love learning about the world and watching nature documentaries. I read xkcd and especially love his What If series. All the time I realize I want to know more about a topic, and start googling, and wind up hours later with my head buzzing with all kinds of tangentially related topics.
I'm looking to meet new people in person. Let me know if you are up for something simple such as lunch, coffee, or a museum, to get to know each other.
