"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." — Marilyn Monroe
I am an enigma, caught between being too young and too old. I have more in common with those older and younger than I am than I do with those in my age group. Im a freelance writer, I teach school and I am full time dad. My son (who is 17) is the love of my life. I sometimes end up in the right place at the right time, but occasionally stuff happens (usually to me).
I am a world traveler, though admittedly I have not been in many years (not since my son was born). I have lived or been in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Philippines. I have a love of Archeology, but it wasnt offered in the undergraduate program at my university; I have a MA in History.
I write [[Role Playing Games]], read [[Manga]], watch [[anime]] and other nerdy things. I am a huge fan of [[Science Fiction]] and [[Fantasy]], but also love a good mystery. Some of my favorite animes are [[Robotech]], [[Full Metal Alchemist]] and [[Dragonball Z]]. Those arent the only ones I own, I have an entire bookshelf full of anime, so just ask I may have it. :-)
There are way too many of these to list here, but if you want to know about any of them just ask, but some of my favorite authors are anything by Robert Heinlein, Alan Dean Foster, recently picked up Jim Butcher 's Dresden Files. Also I like to read things by Monte Cook, Sean K Reynolds, Kurt Vonnegut, Stephen Jay Gould, Kathy Reichs, Raymond Fiest, and others. I am also a big fan of manga and anime.
As for movies, movies are really subjective things. My favorite actors are Cary Grant and Humphrey Bogart, but they are also right there with Vin Desiel and Jason Statham. I enjoy various genres, actors. I think that most B&W films are better than their color counter-parts. I also hate it when they "colorize" a film. If it was suppose to have been in color it would have been filmed in color.
TV Shows: Robin Hood, Primeval, Doctor Who, All The Csi Shows, The Mentalist, Eleventh Hour, Stargate (SG1 and Atlantis), Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, 7 Days, various animes. Dresden Files.
Music: Lets see, this is really difficult. I like music from Classical to Heavy Metal. Music is one of the few things that I will listen to regardless of genre, with very few exceptions. They may not be the exceptions you think. :-) My all time favorite band however is Blue Oyster Cult. I have seen them in concert more than any other band, and are pretty much the only band I own all their albums (CDs).
I'm not really sure when it became chic to be rude. You would never catch me just not replying to a persons message. At the very least you should reply with "No thank you." Or "I'm not interested."
