I am a flaming liberal and am passionate about law and politics. In fact, I like to talk about all of the things people aren't supposed to talk about in polite conversation: law, politics, religion, gay rights, reproductive rights, Supreme Court decisions, elections, you name it.
I enjoy outdoor activities like running, hiking, rollerblading, swimming and such as long as they don't last overnight. I want to sleep inside. In a bed. I don't camp unless absolutely necessary. I also love martial arts, theater (musical and straight), books, movies and Italian food.
I hate the gym, but I do work just to keep from getting out of control. I play racquetball quite a bit with my law school friends, but I am a bit stocky and there is no getting around it.
I actually do have my beard right now, but when I worked for the Navy this past summer they made me shave it off. I have grown it back for the winter and I will see what happens when it gets hot again.
