I have actually been a member of Delphi since late October 1998, but three years later I forgot my password and started this account to get back in.
Retired. I'm also on Facebook. I volunteer at Faerieworlds, FaerieCon and Mythicworlds, three events put on by Faerieworlds LLC.

MAX Light Rail and buses. I stopped driving my own car in late 2011. It saves me between $1.5K and $2K a year. Public transit takes longer, but I get the senior discount, so it's definitely cheaper. If I really need to leave the area, I can rent, but I don't do that very often.
I've never done RPG, but I do go to Faerieworlds events as a wizard. In 2009 I had a small part in an indie film begun at Faerieworlds. I was Gwydion, a wizard under a spell that causes me to Spoonerize words when speaking of magic, or as Gwydion would say "a spizard under a well that causes me to Woonerize spords when meaking of spagic." In November at FaerieCon East in Baltimore, I'll be debuting a new outfit - a goblin modelled on Gandersnitch the Goblin (check him out on Facebook) but with my own persona. Sometimes I dress as a pirate as well.
