I am brilliant, attractive, and very humble. (If you are humor impaired, you can stop reading now.)
Deflecting questions. :)
My work has led me into complex computing systems, because I can quickly scan 10,000 lines of text and find the mistakes, or corner cases unaccounted for, etc.
I have excellent pedantry skills, which is a fairly useless super-power, unless people want me to help edit and improve existing work. At least it pays well.
Sample Books: Foucalt's Pendulum, Coincidance, Cryptonomicon, The Hite Report, Godel Escher Bach, Illuminatus, My Idea of Fun, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
Sample Movies: Female Perversions, Fight Club, Brazil, Princess Bride, Holy Mountain, West Side Story, Jacob's Ladder, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead
Sample Music: VNV Nation, Dresden Dolls, Massive Attack, Skinny Puppy, Pigface, Then Tingari, Crash Worship, Dead Can Dance, Underworld, Johnny Cash, Erasure, Foetus, Coil, Ani DiFranco
Food: Thai (I loves me some Thom Kha Gai!), Sonoran-style Mexican (I grew up in southern Arizona), Sushi... and ridiculously expensive, indulgent, prix fixe meals.
I suppose I could have listed everything, but since things like music would require listing over 1000 bands, it seemed.... excessive.
Here's my current Pandora stations, which will at least be a little more genre-specific.
I live because of sleep, music, transportation, a decent compiler, a usable computer, and an vox/internet uplink.
About the last three, when I went on the "bopalooza" (a road trip all over the US), I kept in touch with family and friends the whole time. $1,600 bucks in roaming charges in one month.
