I'm a migrant worker with time done in Alaska in a cannery and crab boat, in Florida packing oranges, hotels in Germany, insanity in Baghdad, and some space travel, though that was purely for pleasure.
Interests: reading, writing, photography, scuba diving, snowboarding, calling bush and all his cronies to account before god and man for all the evil they've done, and whatever other fun stuff is on offer. my favorite geek books of all time are the wheel of time series by robert jordan. in the non-geek category are 'infinite jest' by david foster wallace, or anything by herman hesse, john steinbeck, vernor vinge, and five freakin' million other names i could drop and you could give a crap about. i hate sports, except the kind where i get to jump out of an airplane or strap on a snowboard for. but the tv kind, forget it. buffy the vampire slayer totally rules, smallville totally blows. but having said that, i did watch 5 seasons of it at one go. 'grizzly man' was an awesome movie, but somehow it made me respect werner herzog as a human being much less than timothy treadwell. if you haven't seen 'trapped in the closet' by r. kelly, you are really really really deprived of the most amazing experience ever. thank you, jeff, for making me watch it, so very against my will. and that's me in a blurb. fascinating. if there was a tip jar here, i'd let you take a dollar out of it. <div style="width:550px; position: relative;"> <object width="550" height="293" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://static.travbuddy.com/flash/countries_map.swf?id=1327040" height="293" width="500"> <param name="movie" value="http://static.travbuddy.com/flash/countries_map.swf?id=1327040" /> <param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#372060" /> <embed src="http://static.travbuddy.com/flash/countries_map.swf?id=1327040" quality="high" bgcolor="#372060" width="550" height="293" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed> </object> <div style="background-color: #38235b; padding: 5px 0px 5px 0px; text-align: center; width: 549px; border-left: 1px solid #372060; font-size: 11px; color: #EEE; line-height: 1.4em;"> <a style="font-size: 14px; color: #FFBF42" href="http://www.travbuddy.com/travel-widgets"><strong>Create your own travel map</strong></a> - <a style="font-size: 14px; color: #FFBF42" href="http://www.travbuddy.com"><strong>TravBuddy</strong></a><br/> </div> </div>
