About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live forever or die trying

ABOUT ME

Well, I consider myself a quick-witted introverted geek. Not all introverts are geeks and neither all geeks are introverted. I am an INFP according to Myers-Jung.

I was born in Madrid exactly 9 months before our current constitution was ratified. That means I consider myself a child of the democracy and precursor of the civil liberties. Hey, everybody has an ego and mine is immense.

I lived in Madrid for almost my entire life, except for a few months in Salamanca and six months in Cambridge, UK. I moved to Barcelona on November 2004 to start a "new life" in it.

PHILOSOPHY

As already stated in my mission: to live forever or die trying.

I think that being nice to people is a way of being nice to oneself. When I misbehave in my relationships I know something is rotten inside _me_.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Right now I am trying to be a better host. In the future I would like to be more involved in the community.

Interests

I enjoy reading, rollerblading and almost everything related to computers.

Music, Movies & Books

a) The Baroque Cycle, LOTR, Neuromancer, Microserfs, El club Dumas (Asimov, Neal Stephenson, Robert A. Heinlein, Douglas Coupland, William Gibson, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman) ...

b) Fight Club, Star Wars, Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy (I do see a pattern here), Bladerunner (Kubrick, Julio Medem, Kevin Smith, Miyazaki, Takeshi Kitano ) ...

c) Mike Oldfield, The Gathering, Placebo, Blind Guardian, Kraftwerk (Anything from Classical to Metal) ... (http://www.last.fm/user/uber-geek) Lately: discovered Telemann's works.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have little pegasus flying aroung my head while they whistle the song from "The Bridge on the River Kwai".

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach practical spanish (how to swear when a waiter treats you badly), formal spanish (how to address the Prime Minister) and idiotic spanish (how to behave when you are so drunk you see flying pink elephants).

I could also explain you some computer related things (be it networking, programming or operating systems related).
