|male. (sorry guys) I'm sure that most people who ask that one are horny net geeks
I'm a quarter British, and 25% Welsh, but only .25 parts Irish. The rest is mostly sarcastic bastard.
|Oh god, I've no idea. I mean, it's been tested, but I don't particularly care so I don't remember. I was in Mensa (you so don't want to hear that story), so it's in at least the top two percent, but beyond that I've no idea.
|(many and varied, so I'll only list some here. chances are I'll try it, whatever it is.)
(just got into this, but it's fascinating. and terribly rewarding.)
(rpg, fps, rts, whatever.)
(it's not that I always need music on, but given the choice there's usually something going.)
(probably because of my science fiction fixation)
(MST3K or not. either way is good.) If you're into bad movies, check out Badmovies.org
(whether it's writing a story, directing a play, cooking something interesting, painting a landscape, building a new and unique computer, I'm happiest when I'm creating something new. What could be better than that?)
(like the ones who send me hatemail or the bible-thumpers who hammer on my door, accost me with pamphlets, etc)
|one thing I love
Not life as in Life, like what we all do every day scurrying about trying to find fulfillment. I mean life as in living things. There's nothing as amazing to me as the complexity and diversity that is life in general, and I think it's the most wonderful thing in the universe. That makes me one of those people who looks after sick voles and adopts homeless baby crows and rescues worms from the rain. As a child I used to beat up the kids who went arounds stepping on ants. I found a beetle in my washing machine once, and spent ages nursing him back to health.
Sarah McLachlan, whose songs of sorrow and longing touch the coldest of hearts.
After her, far too many to name. The Cure, Reel Big Fish, Dave's True Story.. I like just about all of it. Except country. And polka. No one likes polka.
There are so many good movies, but the below are the ones that particularly stand out in my mind just at the moment. I might have missed some, but here they are, in no particular order:
(not counting B movies, of course)
anything by the Marx Brothers, particularly Duck Soup.
The Princess Bride - of course. who doesn't love this one?
Galaxy Quest - it makes fun of so many of the standard conventions of science fiction
Explorers - wonderful! terribly under appreciated by the general public
Batman - dark, gothic, stylised.. excellent. Unquestionably the best of the Batman movies
Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - hilarious. Tom Servo should have received an Oscar.
Star Wars: A New Hope - obviously. in my opinion, easily the best of the Star Wars series. but not the special edition.
Chocolat - so many reasons to enjoy this one
Blazing Saddles - Mel Brooks proved that he could actually release a funny movie! why he didn't do so more often is anyone's guess.
The Producers - Mel Brooks's other good movie.
Office Space - it's so true! it's all so true!
The Nightmare Before Christmas - magic!
Time Burton's Corpse Bride - more magic!
|Isaac Asimov, Terry Pratchett, William Shakespeare, William Gibson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Christopher Moore, Oscar Wilde, Douglas Adams, and of course Robert Anson Heinlein. And so many more.
I tend to latch onto a particular author, and read everything he/she has to offer, so of the authors I mentioned above, everything. Of other authors, far too many to mention, but here are some that occur to me. I'll add more as I think of them.
I love British pantomime, but only if it's done right. There's so much rubbish out there pretending to be panto that it's quite disheartening.
The Housekeeper was the first play I ever directed, and it's a charming little thing. Every time I watched it I got all emotional at the end.
The Importance Of Being Earnest -Oscar Wilde
Twelfth Night -Willie Shakespeare
If you haven't read or seen either of these, do so at once. Twelfth Night is, I think, the most underappreciated of Shakespeare's works... certainly of his comedies, and The Importance Of Being Earnest is steeped in the wit and cutting examination of English society that makes Wilde's works such a joy to read.
It's pretty simple. I like stuff that makes me laugh, and I like science fiction, so most of these fit into one of those categories.
There are others, too, but this is getting rather too long.
And a whole bunch of anime.
|Sports. Those are those meatspace emulations of games like NHL 2000 and NBA Jam, right?
|yeah yeah. I'm a web designer and a tech support rep and a graphic artist. But mostly tech support these days.

Ariel, Queen of the Cat People. She's getting chubby.. now when she sits, you can't see her back feet. I'm working on putting her on a diet, but she's not co-operating.
Belle, feline fountain. I've never met a cat who could produce so much saliva. Many's the time I've been awoken thinking that there must be a leak in the ceiling, only to discover the cat lurking. And drooling.
Thomas the vicious, bloodthirsty parrot. Arr.
Daisy, the adorable lurcher (border collie/greyhound cross).
Geesler, and Gunther, the lovebirds. They live in a coconut, and they're very curious, so they examine you very closely whenever you get near enough.
Tweetypie, the budgie who lives with and terrorises the lovebirds.
a jet black 2001 Hyundai Tiburon SE.
a 2003 Kawasaki ZZ-R250 in black with a metallic blue pearl finish.
SUSHI! uh.. [ahem] Sushi is pretty good.
fish and chips
coffee. I can't live without it. Not because of the caffeine (I have such a tolerance now that it has no effect) but because I just love the rich taste
There's a lot more.. I love to eat, but those are my first choices. :)
And most recently, I've discovered how much more satisfying it is to eat something that I myself have cooked.
"Fashion is what one wears one's self. What is unfashionable is what other people wear. Just as vulgarity is simply the conduct of other people. And falsehoods the truths of other people. Other people are quite dreadful. The only possible society is one's self. To love one's self is the beginning of a lifelong romance."
-Lord Goring, from An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde

Here's a bit about my local scene, as it were.
I'm never really on ICQ, though.

An old lady once said to a girl I was with: "Your young man... he's got the devil in his eyes."
I quite liked that.
|web design software
Just notepad and Photoshop.
If I'm feeling saucy, I use a Wacom tablet to make some graphics. You know what you can do with your FrontPage.
|(Why do people need to know this?)
Sadly, I barely use it any more, as it's been replaced by the iPhone.
|if you need me, just email.
you know how to do that, don't you?
