Job: Bio Lab/Computer Tech

Favorite hockey team: Tampa Bay Lightning
Why do you like them? Hometown team, but heck I objectively like the name, color scheme, and the players, too. I might have picked them if I lived somewhere else. Even the underdog factor was appealing to me back in '95 when playing EA NHL 94 first inspired me to become a hockey fan.

Favorite video/other games: Sonic the Hedgehog series, Half-Life series, World of Warcraft (which I HAVE stopped playing until the next expansion comes out), currently primarily a PC and Nintendo DS gamer so currently hooked on Team Fortress 2, Crysis, Bioshock, Phoenix Wright series, Elite Beat Agents, etc.
Favorite music: Anything 80s, other than that my taste is literally all over the place (techno, J-pop, ragtime, tango, classical, you name it)
Favorite movies: Star Wars series, LOTR series, Miracle, Princess Mononoke, Ghost in the Shell, anything Jackie Chan, CGI stuff like Madagascar, Ratatouille
Favorite TV show: Naruto Shippuuden, Futurama
Have any interesting hobbies? Anime (see above), playing with Photoshop, nature watching, reading about space and bio research

Anything else to share? I love cute and furry animals like arctic foxes. Not that I'm an "animal lover" or PETA member, or even a pet owner. Just think they're awesome. *shrug*

Where were you born? Tampa
Current hometown: Fort Worth, TX
Ever live anywhere else?: No.
Nationality/ethnicity: I think German. And really, really white. I had the grave misfortune of growing up in Florida when my skin burns instead of tanning.
Job: In a nutshell, I'm a business writer.

Favorite hockey team: Tampa Bay Lightning
Why do you like them? I lived in Tampa when they got started and was hooked really fast.
Least favorite: Detroit Red Wings
Favorite active player on your favorite team: Vinny Lecavalier
Favorite active player on another team: Brenden Morrow
All time favorite player: Mario Lemieux
Favorite teams in other sports: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, South Florida Bulls (my alma mater), Dallas Mavericks. Also somewhat of a Dallas Stars fan and officially neutral about the Dallas Cowboys. Could not care less about baseball.

Favorite video/other games: I'm big into vintage gaming - stuff like the Super Mario Bros. series, old-school 16-bit Madden, Tetris, Tecmo Bowl, and some others. I play the new Madden and some other games on PlayStation 2, but I miss the simplicity.
Favorite music: I really hate today's popular music and hip-hop is not my thing. Other than that I'm pretty flexible - rock, "adult alternative", jazz, classical, downtempo, R&B, classic country, you name it.
Favorite movies: Wes Anderson movies, Office Space, Idiocracy, the original Star Wars trilogy, a bunch of independent films you've probably never heard of
Favorite TV show: The Daily Show is the only current show I watch consistently, and I watch Iconoclasts whenever I remember it's on. I'm indifferent at best about everything else, although I do watch quite a bit of sports. Some old favorites include Futurama, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, the first six seasons of The Simpsons, Seinfeld, Sports Night, Coupling (the British version), The Oblongs, and The Critic.
Favorite beer or alcoholic beverage of choice: Don't drink much but I love me some Shiner Bock.
Have any interesting hobbies? Photography (currently agonizing over whether to spend the big bucks on an SLR)

Anything else to share? My wife and I are like square pegs in round holes in Texas. Hopefully we can move somewhere else one day. Also I'm trying to get into graduate school this fall so that my academic career and my real career can finally match.

Anything else to share? If you pay to get your taxes done, don't go to H & R Block, Jackson Hewitt, Liberty, Amscot or any of that ilk. They are over priced and under skilled. Pawn your jewelry before taking a tax refund anticipation loan, it will be cheaper. If searching for a paid preparer and have no personal references find an Enrolled Agent (IRS tested and approved). CPAs are not a sure thing as most CPAs were trained in audit and review, not taxation.
