I'm quite wishy washy, but what the heck.

Name: Norman

Occupation: Customer Service Support Officer at a District Court. Intending to go into the IT industry when a chance appears.

Current Interests and hobbies: Stuff. Collecting toys and models, novels (fantasy/comedy/sci-fi/mix of the three genres), comics, cartoons. A technical Otaku. Computer games (all sorts, but I spend most of my time on-line discussing X-Com) . Also quite like drawing although I'm no professional. Basically anything that takes my fancy.

Hobbies I'd like to get into: Writing a novel and programming a computer game. Dreams are nice, aren't they?

Food: I'm very multicultural with regards to food, but let's just say a hot and tasty curry often gets picked above everything else.

Music: I guess being a child of the 80's, rock and pop are my staple favourite genres, but I like anything that takes my fancy that doesn't turn me against it after I read or actually start to listen to the lyrics. Could even be classical, hip-hop, techno, jazz, western (well, like the theme to Rawhide), etc. Recent obessions include Van Halen and Weird Al Yankcovic.

Crura Fish!
