All About Me

Inspired by the entry here in ***Dave :: It's all about me, I'm going to make a very short list to flesh out your humble blog author.

  • I like being me
  • I typically describe my age as "older than my teeth"
  • I've always rounded off to the nearest "5 years" if someone wants a number for my age — as in 30, 35, 40, etc.
  • This last makes my RFL roll her eyes
  • I like to see her do that
  • Married 20+ years, thank you
  • This last still amazes and delights me
  • I am trained as an architect
  • In the real, I'm a minority owner of a design firm, and a team leader for 6+ folks
  • being the boss usually sucks, sometimes not
  • love to read, but never get enough time
  • love films, favorite genre being "screwball comedies" and usually make time
  • recovering from addiction to comic books
  • I draw, not a lot, and also design graphics, not often, and build RP game systems to relax
  • I write fiction, especially when I can't sleep or when very inspired
  • I'm a gamer, have RP — will travel
  • everyone can change, it's just one of the hardest things to do
  • I treat others the way I expect we all might like to be treated, sometimes I get that wrong, but not often
  • most people don't give themselves enough credit
  • hard work beats casual talent every time
  • "I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself." M. Twain
  • I also refer you to "I am not Arref"
