Hi, I'm Michael.

My account here is mainly to follow the journals of friends acquaintances and (of course) other interesting people here on LiveJournal. My true journal is Fascination Place, whose entries are crossposted here.

I'm a fortysomething programmer living in Silicon Valley, and I'm a fan of science fiction (the written kind, less so the media kind), comic books, and baseball. I listen to a lot of progressive rock, watch old movies, bicycle, and play strategy games. I have two cats, and a girlfriend, who also has two cats, giving us, in total, a lot of cat fur. My journal is basically about my life and my various interests such as these.

Occasionally with bad puns.

Life is good.
