My free time is split between trying out new recipes, training for my next race, and checking out all the wonderful restaurants the city has to offer.
Recently, I just started taking a fencing class for fun and it's been a blast! Not only is it a great workout, it's also a sport with participants of all ages...and it's not every day you get your ass handed to you by someone twice your age!
I'm great at recognizing faces, horrible at names, and I can name your celebrity look alike within minutes of meeting you!
lots of Sci-Fi (Asimov, Heinlein, Frank Herbert, Ian Banks, John Scalzi, Dan Simmons), some Fantasy (Patrick Rothfuss, George RR Martin), and pretty much anything that strikes my fancy while browsing the library shelves.
Grosse Pointe Blank, High Fidelity, Super Troopers, Office Space, Inception, Dark Knight Returns, Casablanca, Space Balls, Ferris Buellers Day Off, and every 80s action movie ever made!
Strokes, Black Keys, Peter Bjorn and John, Rhett Miller, Wilco, Rilo Kiley, Sufjan Stevens
How Did This Get Made, Radio Lab, This American Life, Freakinomics, Fresh Air, Hidden Brain, The Moth
sushi, dumplings, curry, pad thai, pierogies, anything that's grilled cause really, what man doesn't love the grill?, and pho...cause nothing cures a hangover the morning after like a nice hot bowl of noodle goodness!
my morning coffee
my running shoes
my library card
NPR/PBS/PRI...I'm a public radio/TV junkie
sriracha...it goes well with anything!
Also, how much time I've wasted browsing through my ever growing Netflix queue.
-hosting some get together at my place
-relaxing with a good book or movie because sometimes, you just want to veg out after a long week
