Hi everyone, I finally signed up the other day, have been a post crawler here on occasion over the last few years. I figured I may as well join up as most people here seem pretty nice.
Hrrm what can I say about me, I'm from Australia, bit of a nerd in that I love computers, electronics, rc aircraft and other geeky things. I love to make things and generally be creative when I can, at the moment that's consisting of a struggle with a guitar and hopefully learning my way round a sewing machine when I can find the time and elicit some instruction.
I'm I guess you could say a gender fluid individual, I was mid transition when struck down by cancer a few years back which put an end to all the hormone treatment, staying alive became the number one priority and I pretty much had to default back to my male persona. I'm in remission at the moment after a hell of a lot of chemo and other procedures. Psychologically its taken a pretty hefty toll but it seems I'm one tough individual and have been able to keep my head above water despite some fairly heavy inner turmoil.
I love to cook and eat all sorts of food from asian, to middle eastern to mexican, generally prefer the spicier dishes and I'm pretty open to trying most stuff food wise. I've eaten jellyfish, chicken feet, frogs legs, crocodile, snake and plenty of other weird stuff in the spirit of discovery. Though when an Indonesian friend took me to some place that had deep fried roaches, I decided to pass lol.
I'm a big fan of the outdoors, love to spend time in the bush just checking out the wildlife and scenery and generally love to explore new places. Also love the beach, more a snorkelling and scuba diving person than a swimming and surfing type, I get my thrills from checking out the beauty of the world more than performing stunts.
I'm generally a critical thinker and tend not to jump to conclusions on a particular point of view, preferring to evaluate the arguments and evidence for/against a position in an unbiased as possible manner.
Anyhow, enough rambling from me, anything else you may want to know, feel free to ask.
