Mentor Focus - errr.. Me!

Whee! I've been an official Mentor for a couple of hours now. It's exciting! Yes, alright. I'm doing exactly the same things I was doing before, but it's nice to have that little official recognition to go with it.

When I've been talking about the other folks, I've told you a bit about them. Self-examination is harder. Let me see what I can say about myself.

I'm a geek, with all that that implies. My exposure to pop culture gets a bit thin after the early 80s - so when you make some cultural or film reference, and I don't get it, don't be surprised.

I'm a bit wordy, and prone to polysyllabic verbiage. Mostly because I select my words to convey an exact meaning.

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone, "it
means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less."

- Lewis Carroll -- Through the Looking Glass, Chapter 6

I am also prone to sprinkling my speech with fragments of other languages, though either with words so familiar as to be commonly understood, or in ways that are explicated and not confusing. Although, sometimes when I'm chatting with friends, I'll emit bursts of latin. Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum sonatur. And I'm always looking for people to practice my terrible japanese with. Obviously, I am a total fun machine. Tateru - She's all about the fun.

Umm. There we have it. Geek. Fun machine. Umm. I guess that's about it. :)
