I am compelled to try new Root Beer and Ginger Ale. I own a sousaphone, and I should polish it more often, but it is in good repair. I read voraciously and I'm always happy to discover a new author I enjoy. I occasionally get excited enough about the prospect of a peanut butter sandwich to chant a little song while making it. Mysterious Galaxies is my favorite bookstore and if you like mystery, science fiction, or fantasy, I heartily recommend checking it out.
I enjoy cooking, though I generally focus on one dish to the exclusion of anything else. I'm getting better about that , and sometimes I'll remember side dishes and salads. I'm kind of a spur of the moment eater, and I'd like to live within walking distance of a grocery store and a bakery. Have a small refrigerator and just make daily runs to get what I need for a meal.
I've got a book collection, it started because I'm not patient enough to wait for Terry Pratchett books to come out in paperback. I'd say somewhere around half my books are fiction, but more than half my reading is fiction because I don't re-read non-fiction books as frequently.
I'm Jewish. Mostly culturally, I don't really believe in G-d, but I like going to synagogue now and then. I observe the fast of Yom Kippur and the fast of the first born son, even if I don't go to services. Judaism is part of my heritage and it's not something I'm looking to give up, even though it isn't my faith. Really, if people didn't have fun following entirely arbitrary rules now and then, why do we have games like Simon Says and Red Light Green light?
I don't have a lot of experience dating. I've had a few relationships, but mostly with people I got to know before pursuing a romantic relationship with them.
