I love reading/writing, playing sports, running (training for my first marathon), stargazing, and various other activities. I have a road bike and ride it as frequently as I find time to.
I want to chase tornadoes and if I ever met the Storm Chasers crew from Discovery I would probably dissolve into some kind of geeky puddle.
I have a very idiosyncratic sense of humor. I will laugh in the middle of a movie and people will look at me oddly, which is quite all right, to be honest. I enjoy finding things to laugh at when there isn't anything obviously funny... although if I tried to explain what I was laughing at it would probably make very little sense once vocalized. =P
Treating every person I meet with respect and decency.
Playing any kind of competitive sport or game.
Most of my friends come to me for advice on what to do if they're stumped or upset, so we'll have to chalk one up to empathy here.

Various forms of technology to satiate my inner-technophile.
Severely inclement weather. Yeah, the tornado chasing thing. =P I shall miss the spring storms now that I'm here in California. :(
Music. To run to, to relax to, to embrace to, to ponder to, to work out to, to reflect upon, and to learn from.
A nice bed to sleep on. Because you really can't appreciate the value of the sleep you get on a good bed until you have spent several days without one.
I wonder if the mistakes I made really did allow me to learn and strengthen myself as a person, or if I really haven't learned as much as I thought/hope, and I'll repeat them in the near future.
Also: I love the companion cube.
You enjoy actual conversation as opposed to small talk.
You want to go exploring or spelunking or on any kind of adventure.
You love the book you're currently reading and feel it necessary to share.
