Conversation is one of my favorite arts. There's nothing like finding someone who you can talk to for hours, about anything, and not get tired of being together. On the other hand, I'm also a big goof ball fond of the absurd, the satirical and the simply ridiculous. I make funny faces in serious situations, give my employees interesting nicknames, and devise little practical jokes at work. (One Thanksgiving, I wrote an ad for a Black Friday Sale at one of the libraries I work for.)
I try to keep active and get outdoors whenever I can. Sailing, hiking and cycling are good fun, as is snowshoeing. I'm a beer aficionado, and I love sampling new/ unusual brews. I've never tried homebrewing, but it's high on my list of things to attempt! In general, I enjoy creating and organizing things. Writing, cooking and wood-working are some of my favorite things to do. I'm inquisitive by nature, and love exploring new ideas, things and activities.
