My self-summary
I just moved back to Toronto from Vancouver; I gave the Wet Coast my best shot, but two years of getting rained on and living under overcast skies for six months is enough. I try to spend as much of my free time as I can writing, whether it's weblog articles or short stories - I write science fiction, mainly, and it's my hope to ride that bus (possibly even a FLYING bus) as far as it'll go. It'll be what I am no matter what job I hold down to pay the bills. I like to travel a lot, whether it's to some far-flung place or just a part of my own city I haven't been yet. I have been known on occasion to run for mayor.

I'm into science fiction, history, social games, and other things of sorts. What others? Perhaps you should ask.
What I’m doing with my life
I've got a job that takes up a deal of time, sure, but I'm really trying to harness the creative spark whenever I can - that's what I consider to be most important for me. Beyond that, I'm just trying to understand - I like going places, or nowhere in particular, to expand my horizons and know new things.

What I'd really like to do is polish my extremely limited comprehension of Japanese.
I’m really good at
writing, if what I've heard from other people is anything to go by. Putting myself in other people's shoes, listening to my conscience, feeling what they must be feeling and understanding it. Also, I'm extremely accomplished at ruining film; I went through four rolls before I got one that turned out, having made pretty much every mistake I could make in the meanwhile.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice, in that I tend to be a rather loud at times and have difficulty recognizing it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Isaac Asimov, John Birmingham, Robert J. Sawyer, and Allen Steele are some authors I follow. I'm into a lot of short fiction too, which has a wide array of writers and widgets in it.

Movies: Back to the Future, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Terminator 2

Shows: The Amazing Race, Battlestar Galactica, Castle, Firefly, M*A*S*H, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Robot Chicken, Star Trek

Music: Rock, pop, and instrumental tracks.

Food: Pretty simple - perogies, pasta, potatoes, soup, burgers of meat and non-meat varieties, broccoli, and so on. I didn't do much of the cooking in my previous arrangements, so I'm still learning on that front.
Six things I could never do without
Pens and paper, for taking notes; books; tea, whether it be orange pekoe, earl grey (hot), rooibos, or something else entirely; an oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere; my camera; that urge in the back of my brain that gets me walking down new ways and turning around fresh corners.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future, as it is where I intend to spend the rest of my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
just getting off work downtown. If I've got no plans, I'll be writing or noodling around at home, but starting off the weekend with drinks or a movie is a good time too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have constructed elaborate rationalizations for travelling to other cities when all I really wanted to do there was ride and evaluate their public transportation. I am a transit nerd, yes. Such things exist.
You should message me if
you want to talk. Alternatively, if you want to know what my handle means.
