Some are worse than others, and a couple indicate serious pathology:

Let's get the generics out of the way. I, along with everyone else, like dining out, watching movies, cuddling, and taking long walks in the sunshine to enjoy the flowers or--as available--the sparkling snow. I too want to live life to the fullest. So that information distinguishes me in no way from everyone else.

I'm interested in ideas. And I'd like some stimulating company to show me things I haven't seen, teach me things I don't know, bring me books I haven't read, describe movies I haven't seen, introduce me to plays I haven't watched and music I haven't heard.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I bake pretty good sourdough bread. I developed my own starter from ordinary yeast I got at the grocery store. I'd use some of the dough, bakers call it the "sponge," to start successive batches without adding additional yeast. After about the third iteration the sponge had picked up bacteria from the flour that turned it the requisite sour. Tasty!

Presently reading: "Paris Stories" by Mavis Gallant.

Last movie watched: The Grand Budapest Hotel. Loved it! But I usually watch movies long after they're released. Foreign films are in short supply in Fayetteville--which I deplore.

Here's a movie not to be missed: "Keeping Mum," (2005). LOVE dark comedy!

I like "Separate Lies," (2005) for the way its plot unfolds. Unexpected revelations cause the viewer to have to modify his understanding of the story as it proceeds. That structure seems to me better than a bunch of confusing flashbacks and flashforwards that seem to be de rigueur in most movies these days.

I'm pretty omnivorous, but maybe lean a little toward Thai, Mexican, and Chinese food.
