I can't remember the last time I wasn't actively volunteering somewhere and I don't think I'm capable of going more than 3 months without joining a choir or theatre production. I've been a swing dance instructor, my house is decorated with my own paintings, and I consider cooking to be one of the most tangible forms of creative expression.
I'm a software developer; they pay me to make advanced mathematics software easier to use. I'm also love playing board games (and role-playing games) and I have a number of computer and electronics projects waiting in the wings. I'm proud of my home theatre system, but mostly because of how much I learned cobbling it together from a hodge-podge of parts.
I love learning new things and I'm open to new experiences: the quirkier and more unusual, the better. I consider buffets a chance to try all sorts of things I've never tasted before, and all of life looks like a buffet to me (hmmm.... that might explain my rotund figure...) I try not to take myself too seriously and I'm always ready to ham it up, like a few years ago, when I spent the month dressing in drag for the children ;-)
Speaking of dressing up for children, I got myself a Santa suit so that I make some positive use of my figure... Shortly after Valentine's day, a touring Chilean Jazz band was asked by the kids back home if they'd run into Santa while up in Canada. The next morning I got an email from one of the organizers asking me to show up to the concert that evening in costume! The band had a blast taking pictures on Santa's lap and I loved the chance to make them happy, catch some great music, and make everyone's February just a little more surreal ;-)
