Bio: Neurotic. Into a lot of geeky things, but not way into them. Bad at my job but trying to get better before my career is over. I am what is commonly described as ugly. I tell people I'm trying to write a novel, but it's not clear if that's true. I've really enjoyed some books, but I find it really hard to make myself read. I'm usually paralyzed by fear. I have a fairly specialized degree in one of my weakest intellectual areas because... because of nonlinear equations and strange attractions--the principle of tiny variations, never repeating and vastly affecting the outcome.
