If I were to describe myself, I would choose phrases such as "dashing astronomy nerd," "creates a fire hazard by reading books while cooking," "gets strange looks from other drivers due to loud singing" and "do not place in direct sunlight."
More to the point, I'm a scientist, a musician, a reader of books, a cooker of foods, a person who grudgingly enjoys the outdoors (fine, I guess those trees are pretty and the sun is warm on my back, I suppose), and I'm way more of a romantic and idealist than my demeanor would suggest.
I'm also open to recommendations; unless a book is truly dire, I will probably finish it and have thoughts to share.
Movies: I have terrible taste in movies. My idea of a movie is something that will entertain me for a couple hours and make it worth getting to Colonie Center and coughing up eleven bucks. So I enjoy crap like Pacific Rim, Oblivion, Godzilla, and goofy comedies. If it has Seth Rogen in it, I'll probably at least like it.
I do enjoy actually good movies like the Godfather and the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, but I can watch those on my own time for free.
Also, Airplane! is the greatest comedy ever made. Followed closely by Young Frankenstein (Blücher!).
Shows: Perennial favorites are Parks and Recreation, Frasier, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, and The West Wing. Lately, I've also been enjoying Boston Legal, Sherlock, and Breaking Bad. I keep meaning to watch Game of Thrones, but I've already read the books. Always on the lookout for something new and worthwhile.
Music: Depends on what I've been listening to recently. This can be anything from Beethoven to Frank Sinatra to the Beatles to Iron Maiden. In general, though, I enjoy classical, classic rock, a bit of folk and punk, a lot of metal, and movie soundtracks (there is no god but John Williams and Howard Shore is His prophet).
Food: Rare steaks. Sushi. Potatoes, baked or mashed. Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce. Salmon. Craft beer (RIP Mahar's). Red wine. Earl Grey tea. Hot wings from Bombers.
My iPod. Life is so much better with a soundtrack.
Comfortable socks. Seriously, SmartWool is the best sock material ever invented, and necessary in the winter.
Dry-erase markers. How am I supposed to teach if I can't write on the whiteboard?
My guitars. I love music just as much as I love reading.
The Internet. It's how I'm entertained and do research and work. Pretty much wouldn't be able to function without it.
Lately, watching Good Eats with my roommate.
