An avid fan of anything sci-fi and pop culture. My interest tend to lean towards the weird side of things, which I'll leave to your interpretation. Many lonely and cold nights have made me particularly wary about accepting candy from strangers, but not wary enough to decline such offers of suspicious generosity.
