I spend a good amount of time reading about wine (see below) but when time permits: I like to travel to new locales (shocking, right?), play pick-up basketball when my ankles will allow it, and occasionally self-torture by wedging myself into a cramped bus in order to play poker in Atlantic City. I also like to make time to try new restaurants and wine bars, which I deem "work-related research" so I can write off the tabs at tax time (Does the IRS check OKCupid? Okay, good.).
Conversely I am not very good at long division, hitting consecutive proper golf shots, or staying awake in the back seat of a car. But I'm working to get better at all three. Ok, maybe not the division.
I've been told on more than a few occasions that I have the perfect voice for the radio. Sometimes I wonder if that's the nice way of saying I don't have a face for television.
