I started class last night.  I'm an adjunct to a local university's Environmental Engineering department.  Eight years of teaching graduate studies.

I have mixed feelings about this thread, because sharing stuff about myself freaks me out for a variety of reasons.  I could talk more in the other place, if folks wanted.

You do you, boo-boo. What matters most is comfort level.

To take the attention off you, I'll put it on myself (where it belongs).  I have pet an octopus. A real live one. Doing it's octopus thing. That's the moment it became my favorite animal.

Yea, I really miss my time studying zoology. It led me to so many amazing moments. Like being within touching distance of a (timber, I think) wolf and a cheetah while volunteering at the San Diego Zoo and befriending an otter and some meerkats there too.

I went to a wedding with Madonna's family.  She wasn't there, but it was a good time.

I worked on a game called "The Back of Beyond" which never got finished. Neil was doing the world creation and background fiction and Tori Amos was slated to do the soundtrack. He came by the office one day (unannounced) and we all sat around in the conference room chatting about the game world. It was a lot of fun.

Fyn, I now have these weird love/hate feelings for you that I don't know how to handle. Omg.

I...

- have been in a music video and was a notable enough extra that fans of the singer made screencaps of me
- have been given a fully-functional PSP by a stranger
- have climbed the Vasquez Mountains (aka where Captain Kirk had a butt ton of his famous battles)

I'm not very notable tbh
