I like to smile and laugh, make bad puns and parrot Internet memes. Generally polite, respectful and kind. Occasionally misanthropic. I love to cook and make lists of things. I'm an occasional hiker and cyclist, and I'd like to do more of both. I had a small garden for several years--more of a hobby than a food source. I became discouraged and stopped maintaining it after it was destroyed by deer, then flooded several times and finally crushed by trees (no joke). I'll try again in a new location in '13, probably in containers.
In 2011 I had lots of opportunities to travel--went to St. Thomas/St. John in the spring, lower Michigan and Las Vegas in summer, Orlando in late fall. My family is one of those "Disney families" and I visit Walt Disney World every year or two. Europe, Australia and Hawaiʻi are on my bucket list. Wanna go? I dream of thru-hiking the Triple Crown.
I'm not really the type that likes to lounge around, or gamble or shop. I prefer a museum, concert, theater production, hike/bike/drive to a scenic vista or dive bar any day. I generally do not enjoy watching or discussing professional sports or motor sports. I'm not a fan of tattoos. I wouldn't classify myself as a beer snob, but I will always choose a microbrew when available (after consulting Barnivore), and I like to expose myself to something new whenever possible. I love to dine al fresco.
