I find digging around vintage stores and finding items with history fascinating. When it comes to food I have my favorites like Chinese or Sushi but I do enjoy trying new things to see if they might be my next new favorite.
I am a fan of both Horror and Sci-Fi. I think thunderstorms are dynamic and being outdoors can be fun but, I also enjoy a night in cooking and watching something good.
I like the idea about having a house that is off the electrical grid. I don't want to give up my modern conveniences, but there is a level of freedom you get without having to pay bills to a power company. That is a future I like to fantasize about. Of course if that renewable power stuff is green for the planet I don't see anything wrong with that too.
