GeneralKrikey, too many to mention. Computers, RPGs, music of all sorts, strange lil films, movies about Vikings, guitars, swords and the use thereof. Ireland and the rest of Europe. Hell, other places in general. I love history, and don't know nearly enough. Puzzles and mind exercises. Novels. Good cookin'. Beer, mead, wine, absinthe.

HeroesA working class hero is something to be.
About me:I'm equal parts rock star and mad scientist (ed: the drunk part of "rock star" and the socially inept part of "scientist"). Friends would say bullshit. I've been known to get drunk and dance, make noise and call it "music", and watch very bizarre movies... repeatedly. I crave new experiences and travelling, something I do far too rarely. I've also got a bizarre and sarcastic sense of humor. I'm able to see the absurdity inherent in all facets of life, and can experience it on several levels. I've started working with theatrical combat again, and it is awesome.
Who I'd like to meet:Cool and unique people. Beautiful women, smart men, sentient plants, whatever it takes to make an impression. Did I mention beautiful women already? ;) Anyone who knows how to construct basic sentences, or can use MS Paint to get their point across. Bonus points for the geeky and the insane.
