I like this idea...so, I'm going to piggy back as well. We've seen staff tell a bit about themselves. So, why not us players.
First, to all the 'newbs'...welcome to your new addiction :) But, seriously, good to meet you guys.
I've been an Rper for over ten years, but, like my Jade twin above (wonder twins, activate?) before SD it was mostly medieval. I totally feel your pain on the angst aspect. I guess I would still be considered pretty new to the game. I'm definitely not as experienced as many of the players I've seen.
During the day, I work in law enforcement so I get the combined thrill of exercise and work simultaneously (heh). I also have a teen daughter so, does competitive shopping count as a contact sport? I avoid roller skating, though. I'm a clutz by nature and that would be taking my life into my hands and probably not end well.
I would call myself somewhere in the middle of casual and hardcore, I guess. SD is my wind down after dealing with all the real baddies, I would say.
Anyways, good to meet all you new players and I look forward to getting to know even more experienced ones.
