||Curious about me, are you?
Let's see if I can help you out. I'm a meteorologist and recent transplant
to Salt Lake City, UT. I came here for a job, and though I miss home, I'm
enjoying every minute here. When I'm not working or continuing my
exploration of the city, I enjoy listening to and playing music, catching up
on all the movies I missed during college, attempting to cook, reading books
of varying degrees of quality, and brushing up on my useless facts so I can
continue to be a halfway impressive at Trivial Pursuit.
If that's not enough information for
you, I've completed one of those really lame "about me" surveys that I've
ripped from Livejournal that you may peruse at your leisure. It's a little
long, but don't say that I didn't warn you.
