I left the fast and glamorous life of a crime and intelligence analyst to go back to IT, this time as a software developer. I love to cook, and I make some pretty good food - my family has eaten it and they're still alive. They even said they liked it! I don't like washing dishes but do so out of necessity and mild clean freak tendencies.
I have a small but decent (I think) collection of Japanese-style swords. I've been told one is combat-ready (the others are all stainless steel blades and are not meant for anything other than decoration). They all have really sharp blades and I have no idea how to use them - for now I value them because they're really shiny.
