My self-summary
Hey! I'm Spencer. I'm super friendly, energetic, and distractible. I haven't touched this page for a few years, so bear with me while we're under construction.

I like to overanalyze things, jump to conclusions, and argue about the artfulness of video games, often using 8x10 color glossy photographs with circles an arrows.

My interests range all the way across the board but have a tendency to clump in the geekier end of the spectrum (i.e. comic books, boardgames, all of the science, and Terry Pratchett). On a more active note (but not too active) I also love skiing, biking, sailing (on other people's boats), dancing (swing and blues mostly), and parenthesis.
What I’m doing with my life
Working my way up a corporate ladder and corruptin da yout's (some genius thought that I'm responsible enough to get interns... go figure)
I’m really good at
Drawing absurd connections between books, movies, tv, music, and other forms of media that aren't remotely related to each other
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice. It's not that it's particularly soothing or melodic or anything... I just have a tendency to get really loud when I'm really excited (most of the time) and that's just how most people in the room get to know me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I consume all kinds of culture voraciously. I love a lot of historical-fic, almost all the sci-fi (even the trashy pulpy stuff), some travel, and all good comedy (but who defines "good?").

I plow through books, tv, and video games, so I'm not going to try to keep a list here. One of my favorite books has been "A Canticle for Lebowitz". My favorite author is definitely Terry Pratchett (GNU). If you don't think that he's a genius, let me know, because I can totally convince you otherwise. I just finished Ninefox Gambit and reccommend it to everyone (yea, its military sci-fi, but I'm not usually a big fan of military sci-fi either).

I'll come back to the rest of this at a later date.
Six things I could never do without
Moving to Seattle has made me rethink what's important in my life. As it turns out, I'm perfectly capable of surviving without pizza and bagels but I'm rather bitter about it. I still need my buddies, my books, and my laptop because I'm a slave to technology
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New and creative ways to say 'fuck the gender binary'
On a typical Friday night I am
Hangin out with friends. Whether it's board games, drinking, seeing a show... whatever it is, it's no fun to do it alone (especially drinking)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am the Bat.
You should message me if
You've got a brain in your head and really anything in common with me. Or not. I thrive on learning new things and meeting new people so if you think you're interesting and can talk excitedly about it, then I'll probably agree. I'm still fairly new in town and I'm more or less down to meet up, make new friends, relationships, and/or bitter rivals
