Balancing health and werewolves

Website:
I was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a pervasive genetic disease, and a passion for gaming (ok, I guess the latter was learned; I blame the teacher who taught me Bridge when I was 9). Four things take up most of my life: gaming, my health, work and my other half. I'll only be posting about the first two.

Gaming:
Card Games (especially CCGs, notably Rage and M:tG);
Roleplaying (historically White Wolf games, but getting more varied);
Board Games & any other kind of game - I am just too competitive;
Game Design: I am a developer for the Rage CCG fan sets and also (try to) design other games. Lack of dedication and energy has meant I haven't got as far as I would like.

Computers:
I do like learning new computer languages, but only as I need to;
Similarly other software;
Computer are a varied and interesting tool, not an end unto themselves.

Communication:
I just love to talk, in person or over the computer, and that includes writing blogs and articles for Rage;
I do rules and form-filling too.

Librarianship:
I know some librarians who really love the act of cataloguing; I just have a head for order (unknown in my personal space) and for words.

Fantasy and Science Fiction:
I tend to group these together, part escapism, mostly as an excuse to address problems from a different direction. I am not so keen on "hard" science fiction books, but my range of Fantasy authors is huge (helped by an adolescence raiding that part of the library).

Satire:
See Fantasy and Science Fiction! Plus, you have to laugh at this world around us.
