My name is John, and this is my SparkPage. Make yourself at home!

I suppose a little background would be appropriate here...

I'm a computer geek living in Southern California. I have a variety of obsessions that change from week to week: I like trivia and word games (playing or creating them); I'm a voracious reader and I love movies; I'm an arts and crafts junkie who's trying hard to wean himself off messy and expensive hobbies.

Recently, I've been noodling around with writing in the hopes of venting some creative steam in the form of a novel. So far, I've located all the letters of the alphabet on my keyboard, and I'm encouraged by this progress. Soon, I'll begin putting them together into coherent words!

I am the guardian of an adorable but slightly defective cat named Wicket. (No, she's not named for the famous ewok.)

The image to the right is of me at a slightly younger age. And yes, that's a slide rule I'm holding -- I am truly an old school geek.

Well, that's me in a tiny nutshell. I'll see you in the message boards!

Member Since: 1/10/2008

Fitness Minutes: 263

My Goals:
My goals include losing 35 lbs (for starters), working on my masterpiece (though I don't know what form that will take yet), and making my wonderful girlfriend insanely happy. (I'm driving her insane currently, so I figure I'm halfway there!) UPDATE: My wonderful girlfriend is now my wonderful wife. Mission accomplished!

My Program:
Programs are for computers, not people!

Personal Information:
I'm currently living in Santa Monica, California. I code web applications, write speculative fiction, and complain bitterly about all the damn kids on my lawn.

Other Information:
I tend to have an offbeat sense of humor that turns up in unlikely places. Despite outward appearances, I am sane and not even the tiniest bit dangerous.

Oh, and contrary to the "Fitness Minutes" listed here, I haven't been stationary since 2008. I just haven't been on SparkPeople for a few years. =D
