Introduction Yeah... I love music and listen mostly to Indie Rock/Pop, which means I can come off snobby about music. But that's only because I really think expression and meaning is important in any art, and that mainstream culture is... well, not all it could be since the Renaissance. I really like basset hounds. I had one before I moved. He was a rescue dog, and had behaviour problems. He bit me twice in the face, bad enough for stitches, (umm... it didn't leave any hideous scars or anything), but I kept him and trained him, and he turned out to be a super dog. I think that says something about me. I'm always learning a new language -- at least I study for a week or two and then get bored. Right now, it's Czech, because -- dammit -- I want to find out what those Bel Ami boys are really saying. I watch more TV than is strictly necessary -- People's Court is oddly entertaining, as is The Apprentice, and I feel like should probably be watching the New Hour with Jim Lehrer instead of a repeat of Gilmore Girls or Doctor Who.

You forgot your mom's birthday! What can you make out of super glue and olive pits?

Olive pits and superglue is all I have in the house? What am I? The bastard child of MacGyver and Dean Martin?
