I'm told my wit is mostly comprised of snark, sarcasm, with a touch of outdated TV references. I think I'm okay with that.
I'm a major sucker for a free meal, more so if it's homecooked. With that said, I love trying new foods. I'll try anything once. I guess the most unusual thing I've tried would be Balut in the Philippines. The "broth" was good but the texture of the... protein was a little too jarring. Also, visually it was weird. Staring at a half formed beak while a wet eye stares back at you was a little tough to swallow.
I also, like most people, have hobbies. I don't like to brag but I have more than two of them. Awesome right?
I'm not your most outdoors kind of guy but there are some things that get me away from the comforts of controlled temperature and couches.
For funsies, I go fishing pretty regularly when the weather is up. Nothing like getting away from the hustle and bustle of society and reconnect with nature. Plus bringing in a salmon or striper is always a fun fight. I do wish I caught more catfish that were worth keeping... deepfried catfish mmmmm.
I go mountain biking on some of the local singletracks. I have pretty pathetic balance so I probably should be better than I currently am but it's so much fun regardless.
On lazy days I drift off to other worlds by picking up a good novel or daydreaming. I was teaching myself how to paint but some douchenozzle broke into the cottage in Napa and stole almost all my art supplies. So if you have any extra canvases or pads, I am not above letting you give them to me for free.
I am trying to break out of the ASOIAF reread trap that I'm in. I leave copies of the series at various places I frequent so I always end up picking one up from a random spot and end up reading through the entire series again. Those books are just way too entertaining. I have a pile of new books that are getting neglected.
With that said, I can also sleep almost anywhere.
Or more probably probably that I probably look probably tired.
Shows - Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Borgias, Downtown Abbey, Psych, Arrested Development, Scrubs, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Firefly, No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain, River Monsters, The Venture Brothers, Community, True Detective, etc.
Music Listen to practically every genre... just off the top of my head of some recent playthroughs; God is an Astronaut, Aerosmith, Dark Tranquility, Radioactive Sandwich, Solar Fields, Florence and the Machine, etc.
Food - Fish! Hot wings, NY style pizza, Chicken/pork adobo, chicken tikka masala, veggie smoothie/juice... pretty much anything. I love food and attempting to cook what can pass as it.
The Internet. So much to do.
Colors. Especially in nature.
Fruits and Vegetables. I don't eat them as much as I should but biting into that perfect mango is indescribable.
A vice. I can't always be Mr. Perfect Role Model.
Music. I may not venture out into new stuff as much as I used to as a teenager but give me some good Psybient or Post-Rock while I'm driving down some country road watching the sunset and I'm pretty freaking content with life.
And if I could figure out how to work a sewing machine I would totally make some awesome costumes.
Buuuut if I decided to stay up late I'd like to go to a board game meetup. I think that would be neat. I've never been.
