I am gingerish, and as somone else on this site said,"Go take your stereotypes and play in traffic =)" I am the king of unasked-for advice. I frequently need time to myself. I am not good at being alone. I am the biggest geek you are likely to meet. I have maintained my sense of wonder. I am open minded and love all kinds of humor. Strange random things come out of my head. I am prone to excess. I want to die in a better world than i was born in. I am a giant squirrel. Like Princess Bride ROUS of squirrels. The difficulties facing me number only one less than one hundred, though none is of the female persuasion. I like the outdoors, love water and am inclined to stare at brightly colored bugs, and small furry or scaly things. I love games: video, board, pen and paper, love 'em all. I like to cuddle, which is good, because I am eminently huggable.
I am here, there, and everywhere
Running a D&D game, looking for a Shadowrun game
Collecting what I need for making things out of dead cows.

I will be tinkering with this profile occasionally so expect changes.
Confusing People; making interesting things seem hopelessly confusing.
Acquiring facts, skills.

Ranting, particularly about religion and politics

Snuggling. I believe I mentioned being huggable.

The tools to create. I have a bass guitar i can't really play, a c++ compiler and references for several other languages, though i have only done a little web scripting and a couple simple console apps, books on physics, chemistry, rocketry, robotics, etc, although i will probably never build a spaceship, and scores of books for games i seldom or never play. these things inspire the imagination, keeping me from sinking to a bottomless pit of misery. One day i may do something with some of them.

If you have a profile here and a profile on Fetlife I will probably find the Fetlife pictures more interesting. Although, this one will probably be the better read.
You want to play round of Settlers of Catan or Call to Arms. Or if you need a Paladin or Enchanter for a D&D game(3.0,3.5 Please), Or a Shadowrunner of any kind, Or you have another game i might be interested in (WoD themed, for example)
You like man-sized, and very huggable squirels.
