Lingonhunter Mockery-Wang
24 January 1979
Once upon a time, I wrote a bio here that took itself not at all seriously and probably came off as me being a complete dick. I left it up for a long time after noticing that, sort of on general principles; after all, maybe I am a complete dick and people might as well have that sort of warning. It seemed fair-- sort of a public service anouncement. I've gotten rid of most of it now, though, because I'm tired of it myself... and I really do try not to be a dick, most of the time. I'm just lousy at biography. I was an English major (although I seem to have forgotten how to write coherently) and a little in love with Classics too, for example, but that doesn't tell you if I'd be any fun to spend time with over a shared pizza. Choosing biographical details are a bitch that way.

So. Hello. I'm fond of a lot of things, a fifteen-year-plus-old game called Nethack included-- and it does run under Windows, so you have no real excuse not to sample its tartlike, meta-referential joys. I'm unfond of a lot of things, too, but it's generally unproductive to moan about that too much here. I'm not sure why you're reading this if you don't already know me, unless you (like many here, self vaguely included) take a certain voyeuristic pleasure in reading the small, intimate details, triumphs and failures of some stranger's life.

I'm currently in graduate school, heading toward a hopeful career in video game design; I make art, you see, and I'd like it to collect into shapes that I can both be proud of and show to other people more often. Games, which I enjoy anyway, seem like a good way to accomplish that and even get paid. Getting paid to do something creative that I enjoy sounds lovely, especially after trying the corporate world first.

I still haven't grown up and I'm not planning on it. Mary Martin's Peter Pan was a formative influence.

Read what you find if you will, or wander by on the way to other pastures. I'll never know unless you come out of the dark to say something. Regardless, I may still stumble across that entry about the time you did that thing you can't believe you did-- at your age, too!-- some late, intimate night from now, and if I stay silent you'll never even know. Such is the Internet. So, please... say something back now and then if you are there, and I will try to remember to give you the same kindness when I wander by in turn.

Hello, Internet. How's the weather?
