So, what are my interests? A list that falls into a few buckets: endurance sports, ideas (yeah, that's vague), and food. Lots of food.
Love triathlon, running, cycling, and try (really hard) to like swimming. I'd love to sail, climb mountains, mush through the wilderness on snowshoes, but haven't had the chance (yet). Haven't skied much in recent years but happy to be back near mountains and can't wait to speed down them, flailing (near) out of control; that's my ski technique.
Love small books & big books, serious and shallow, and a wide range of "the arts" ... from so-called fine arts to more applied. Architecture in particular gets me hot. I like the word "polymath" and try to reflect it.
Where to start with food? I'm all for haute cuisine but real pleasure come from peasant food, things eaten with hands. I won't say I'm obsessed with coffee & espresso ... but our relationship is complicated. Adult beverages? Yes, please ... I shy away from connoisseurship (had to look that up to spell it correctly!), but I veer towards the micro/Belgian more than PBR, obscure wines than anything from a box. Gin or vodka? Gin! Bourbon or Scotch? By god, I'm an American: Bourbon!
Anyway, I'm new to Seattle - looking for people to show me what it's all about.
