I have a deep-seated love of things involving water, particularly
sailing and scuba diving, but enjoy almost all outdoor activities. If I get into a conversation I'm interested in, I can become somewhat animated (and occasionally loud and profane), but otherwise I am usually pretty stoic. It's usually easier to listen than it is to talk.
Things that I'm relatively good at:
Engaging in completely ridiculous conversations with complete sincerity (zombie survival, morality of killing robots that look like humans, etc.)
Socially: my wit
Movies: 28 Days later; Aliens; Dr. Strangelove; Nolan Batman
Shows: Game of Thrones (or pretty much anything on HBO); Battlestar Galatica; Rick and Morty; Archer
Music: What day is it? My music tastes fluctuate regularly. Some constants: James Brown; Gorillaz; Daft Punk; Red Hot Chili Peppers; during the holiday season: Harry Simeone Chorale
Food: I like all foods; although the dish gets extra points if it has some meat in it. BBQ and sushi rarely disappoint (not together, of course). Macaroni and cheese has been a comfort food since I was a child, a well prepared french toast breakfast (that includes bacon, eggs, and hash-browns) is always appreciated, and I find I can never say no to a lox bagel.
A project to work on
Something to record/work out my thoughts
A bike (bicycle, not motorcycle)
A good knife (byproduct of sailing; I promise, I am not a serial killer)
Of course, there are some people in my life that I wouldn't want to do without, but I don't consider people THINGS. If you do, you are a terrible, terrible person.
What direction my life is heading, my next course of action
My next personal project (current front-runner: building a grandfather clock that, instead of chiming on the hour, asks an existential question)
Philosophical and metaphysical questions
What to have for dinner
