I think having an actual sense of humor and being able to laugh at funny things are important in leading a healthy and interesting life. I'm not much of a joke teller, but I am good at getting giggles out of people. Situational humor is more my style, and if that fails I even have the ability to make fun of myself. Now with that being said, if you're someone who can't even laugh at a silly non-offensive joke (but most good jokes have to offend someone out there) please stay away from me. You make life even more sad than it ever ought to be. Okay, you can come near me if you have to, just don't listen to things I say or watch things that I do.
You probably couldn't tell by my appearance, but I absolutely looooove food. I like trying new and different things, and I especially like ethnic foods. Picky eaters bug me because they seriously haven't the slightest idea as to what they're missing out on. The sheer variety of flavors, textures, and combinations thereof out there is amazing. I also greatly enjoy cooking. Most of what I've made has turned out pretty good to quite excellent. But I've had my screw-ups as well. I burned spaghetti one time and thank God no one in my family knows. It's bad enough that I'm a disgrace to my Italian heritage for burning pasta. If they found out, I'd get disowned too. I've done a little baking too. My most recent foray into that realm was making almond cookies from scratch. I managed to kinda crispify them and still got high regards from my guinea pi, I mean friends. And I don't have the kinds of friends that would placate me; they tell me when my food is bad.
I'm a relatively active person, and I exercise 4-6 times a week. I was in a car accident in 2012 (a tree fell on top of my car while I was driving), and while recovering I was given a choice. I could use medical devices and take pain pills for the rest of my life, or I could strengthen my body. It wasn't much of a choice. Now, I'm probably in the best shape I've ever been in, and I plan to continue in this direction.
