Hi, I'm Brick 3621, and [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife I'm a tropaholic]].

I firmly place blame for my obsession not on [[Wiki/TVTropes the wiki itself]], but on [[Webcomic/ElGoonishShive Dan Shive]] neglecting to warn readers in [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/?date=2010-02-12 his commentary for this comic]] that he was linking to ''the'' most addictive, time-consuming BrowserNarcotic that I have ever come across, even three years later. Switching to Chrome and installing [=StayFocusd=] should have worked wonders for my productivity and ([[AttentionDeficitOohShiny already short]]) attention span, but alas and alack, I still haven't found it within myself to add this wiki to the list of blocked sites.

This enigmatic mediocre writer exhibits the following tropes:
* BigEater
* CloudCuckoolander
* TheDitherer
* ForgetsToEat
* HatesSmallTalk
* ObsessedAreTheListmakers: To a greater extent than most {{troper}}s, actually. It's just my way of relieving stress.
* SerialTweaker: I've been trying to overcome this habit, with mixed success.

!!!WesternAnimation[[note]]I'm still in the middle of considering whether or not I should add ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' to this list. I don't consider myself a ''true'' brony; having watched the first six episodes, I recognize that the animation is superb, the voice acting is great, and the characters have universal appeal, but I can't for the life of me figure out why so many other folks my age are making more of a fuss about this than about any other show.[[/note]]
