Personal Interests

I exist as I am, that is enough.
---Walt Whitman


Lilith
Lilith (1892) John Collier
*** Caution: This is a shameless vanity page. It is entirely self-indulgent, completely without merit, and you really shouldn't waste your time looking at it. Go do something useful, really. ***

So, my interests include my two pet carpet pythons, Athena and Hera; Go, the ultimate strategy game; role playing games like Dungeons & Dragons; reading; photography; hiking; cinema; and eating other people's cooking.

The Girls

Athena as a two year old.
I used to keep two Irian Jaya carpet pythons as pets until I moved to New York City in September 2009. Sadly, I had to find new homes for them, as possession of any member of the genus Python in the city is strictly verboten. As you can see in the picture to the left, she was small enough to fit in my hand as a baby. She weighted about two ounces. In the picture to the right, she has undergone the usual color change as she became an adult. She is about four to five feet here, and will probably gain another foot or two as her final adult size. She's incredibly gentle, and I've taken her to an elementary school and a middle school to show students. Many students touched her, and a few were even brave enough to hold her.

On the Bookshelf

I've never met a bookshop I didn't like. I've often thought that some were entirely too small, or the choices presented were, shall we say, meager; but I liked them all. Some more than others.

I enjoy reading. Here's a list of books, novels, short stories, plays, poems, essays, and speeches I've read since late 2009, listed in alphabetical order by author's name. Format: Author; Title (Year published). Subject matter [Year read]. Comments.
