I also love cooking, and expanding my cooking genres...I am a vegetarian not for the normal reasons but because to me... it tastes bad...kind of rotten and bitter. I'm not an ass about how I eat though, unless someone *makes* it an issue. Time with a more vegetable based diet helps me expand my cooking base a bit, which is nice. I can still cook very good meat dishes though. I bake too, occasionally.
I really like camping and hiking, as well as having a chance to go to the gym. I'm not a gym rat by any means, but it's a great way to blow off steam. If you just want a gym partner in the area, let me know! I'm good at kicking my own ass at that place.
I'm easy to get along with unless you have a knack for getting on my bad side.
And for those who care about sports, I'm picky in what I like. I prefer hockey and baseball. I'm an Avalanche, Canucks, and Red Sox fan. Deal with it.
