I don't keep up with the news every week, but, I've usually read something interesting of late, and, I'll always be glad to listen to any fascinating factoids that you have picked up as well.
I'm a slob. Working on being less cluttered.
On the other hand, I can dress fairly decently when I wish to.
I'm not adventurous enough. I haven't traveled, and I don't often go out. That's just who I am, and will probably always be. Not that I don't object to adventures, but they should be small, or if large, only occasional. My idea of excellent fun and adventure is a mega crafts project. Most recently, I've taken on restoration of a 1936 grand piano. It feels good to bring it back to life again-- it deserves better than the dump. That said, I'm finding out why the dump was considered. To be fully good as new, it's taking me around 200 hours, no joke!
Previous completed projects were some marble carvings, paintings, and rebuilding the engine, transmission, and rear axle of my station wagon.
Previous uncompleted projects are rather numerous... :-/ You know where I'm coming from.
I do like computer games, although lately I've been bored of them. Mostly plot-based rpgs: dragon age, mass effect were some of the best. Skyrim had shallower characters but awesome graphics and gameplay. Bioshock and tomb raider had real, rich stories to tell as well. I like where computer games are headed: to the realm of serious scripted drama.
I go on reading binges, too, every few months. I don't read a book every week; rather, every few months, I'll read 3 books in one week.
I will be joining the Navy next summer, and lately have been getting into exercise. I've been by lifelong habit a sedentary fellow, so this is quite an adjustment for me. I feel like I'm finally approaching that watershed moment when it transitions from purely painful chore or even torturous agony, to maybe, actually, being a bit fun.
