So, this is a thing I used to do from time to time and I know that it's been a long time since the last one. TWHL has gained a lot of new members over the years, some of the veterans have moved on but a handful are still knocking about.
The question is this: Who are you? What are you into? What do you like and dislike? Share as much as you are comfortable with and no more. This isn't mandatory. It's just a little way of getting to know a few of your fellow members a little bit better
Market Drayton, Shropshire, EnglandRelationships:
2 previous. Currently married with 2 kids. Intend to maintain that for a while Occupation:
Systems Administrator (Junior). Previously web design integration and first line support. SysAdmin is a whole new thing for me and I've got a lot to learn. Keeps things interesting.Current goal(s):
Finish The Core and start working on some of the other projects I've got floating around in my head. I want to write a book but have neither the skill or the motivation to sit down and do it. Professionally, I'd like to advance beyond a junior SysAdmin and take on some more challenging tasks. I've also put some serious thought into winning the lottery.Politics:
I'm not a politically charged person. The whole thing bores me.Religion:
None. I believe you should live your life as you see fit, not based on what some ancient storybook says (or is interpreted as saying).
I've recently just taken to throwing diced chicken, bell peppers and onions into a pan and stirring in some hot sauce. If I have tortillas in I wrap that shit with salsa and sour cream, otherwise it goes in a bowl. Lush.Hot drink:
Milky coffee with two sugars. Coffee snobs would see me hang for it.Cold drink:
Coke Zero or Pepsi Max. No preferenceSnacks:
I much prefer savoury snacks. Can't go wrong with a big bag of Doritos and hot salsa dip.Movies:
I'm not big into movies. I like action flicks and comedy if pushed. I'll often rewatch something I enjoy than seeking out new stuff.Videogames:
Deep RPGs and classic FPS games. Loving the current surge of retro FPS titles that are coming out and I will play Doom or Duke3D any day of the week. I'm also really into anything with a branching narrative that offer choice and consequence and as such, can be replayed.Music:
I''ll listen to most genres from classical to dubstep. At the moment I'm mainly listening to indie stuff and synthwave. Artists such as The Midnight, Mystery Skulls and SIAMES.Other:
I spend most of my time during the day with my family and the evenings and night at my desk, gaming or mapping. I'm kind of one-note in that regard, but I'm happy.
Fish. I really hate fish. The texture and the taste makes me sick. Tuna is OK though, for some reason.Hot drink:
Tea. Despite being English, I really do not enjoy tea at all.Cold drink:
Supermarket brand cola. Why is it so cheap? What corners are they cutting? Why does it exist?Snacks:
Liquorice or aniseed sweets. Liquorice tastes foul, aniseed is an actual assault of your taste buds.Movies:
Like I said, I'm generally not into movies at all, but I generally dislike the horror and romance genres. Predictable trash in both cases.Videogames:
Sports games. I don't see the point of sports in general. I'm also not a huge fan of strategy games, but I can happily play online, mainly for a laugh. And of course, horror again. Game with horror elements are fine, but all out horror schlock is just boring.Music:
Rap, R&B and most pop music. Just no.Other:
I'm not one for sitting and watching things, hence my aversion to movies, TV and sports. But I also don't enjoy taking part in sports. I just hate sports.
