Hobbies. I have hobbies. I like outdoorsy things like camping and hiking and mushroom hunting and fishing. I would like to point out that most of the fishing I do is fly fishing, because there is that mystique and the image of Brad Pitt and that other guy in that movie everyone loves. Also softball, I do love softball, and play in a coed rec league every summer and fall (fun, exercise, and a realistic expression of my 36-year-old love for baseball). But I also like indoorsy things like pinball, which I'm pretty good at. I guess I am sort of a film buff by default.
I'm pretty spacey and most people who meet me assume I am either stoned or on medication, both of which are usually not true. Probably I am just thinking about something else, going through some melody in my head or something. I'm not what any reasonable person would call "good" at paying attention all the time, so if that is a deal-breaker, uh, wait, what were you saying?
I'm extremely serious about life and understanding life, and that is why I am always making jokes. A lot of them are stupid. Some of them are clever. Lots of them are accidental. I like when people laugh at them regardless.
Here are some things I like: the Eleven Point River, gummy worms, that feeling when your plugged-up nostril finally clears up, unsolved mysteries like what happened to Henry Hudson or Amelia Earhart or the Roanoke colony, watered down orange juice, analog synthesizers, beautiful people, artsy video games, & pop corn.
Here are some things I don't like: peaches, littering, commercials, & driving.
