Banter, references, and horrible puns (as well as Oxford commas) are a must around me! I have little interest in hiding things or trying to impress beyond my means; I find that doing that tends to come around and bite you in the ass one way or another (unless you're INCREDIBLY careful with it, but that requires too much unnecessary effort most of the time).
Also probably should have mentioned, I'm occasionally long-winded! I just take delight in nuance and accuracy in meaning so sometimes I just can't help myself when designing a thought!
And if you're into Myers-Briggs types and such, I'm apparently very much an ENTP.
Otherwise, I'm keeping occupied with Taekwondo when possible.
I'm also pretty solid at most games. But don't worry, though I truly enjoy metagaming, I'm not uber-competitive.
Playing devil's advocate and also finding something (usually darkly) humorous about nearly any situation.
More than anything else though, people seem to notice notice a fairly well kept, red beard!
Favorites followed by runners up (note the punctuation)!
Firefly. Code Geass, Lie to Me, Fate/Zero, Futurama, Sherlock, X-Files, Star Trek: Next Gen.

Music though, now THAT'S a conversation! Though I was raised on Classical and still love it probably the most, I've come to enjoy anything between JPop, Electronic, House, Jazz, Chiptunes, and Progressive Metal. Honorable mention goes to Flight of the Conchords, Professor Elemental, and Epic Rap Battles.
A wild game section appears!
Zelda: Majora's Mask, Dota 2, Portal. Civ 5, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Mass Effect, Golden Sun, FFVIII, Bioshock. Also board games like Puerto Rico, Settlers, and Dominion!
Ah but in terms of food, though a good steak is always at the top of my list, I've come to love a great many cuisines. Definitely looking to increase that variety! I love teas, particularly Earl Grey, Dragonwell green tea, and oolong varieties. However, with alcohol, I have a very strong preference for good scotch at all times!
The technological singularity and what form it might take.
Also I keep thinking, "how am I going to feel about this when I'm older? Did I actually live or did I waste my youth entirely?"
Otherwise I tend to be off playing one of my many instruments or reading a good book while drinking tea.
