Somewhat to my discomfort, I find I need to actually introduce myself . . . I had hoped to get more time figuring out the mores and customs here . . . .
Honestly, I'm not very comfortable talking about myself, especially out of the blue like this . . . One supposes relevant facts could cover my absurd grasp of night pointless trivia (one of these days I ought to go on Jeopardy), a perverse and cynical streak tempered with small amounts of sarcasm (warranted not to exceed 45 times the LC50), author of numerous uncompleted works (mostly science fiction and fantasy), and hobbies that include playing most any sort of game considered geeky or nerdy. Oh, a forcibly truncated US Coast Guard career (not my fault, personally I'd rather NOT have been injured . . . . )
