I repair, upgrade, modernise, and otherwise work on woodwind instruments as a hobby. My favourites are Flutes, Oboes, English horns, Clarinets. I attended and graduated from the Band Instrument Repair Tech program at Renton Technical College, and had a great time. Message me if you'd like to know more!
One of my other hobbies, when I have extra time, is building model ships. Particularly steamships, liners, and WW2-era; not so much the tall sailing ships. (I've only built the Titanic once... It's one of my least favourite ships, though I LOVE James Cameron's movie. Ditto for the Bismarck, and the HMS Hood, but more because the kits available are terrible.) I've made a few planes too, but I prefer the ships.
I am also a hopeless romantic. I love hand-holding, cuddling, affection, romantic dinners, kissing in the rain, dancing, bubble baths, and long walks. Of course, I do have a little bit of a darker, kinkier side as well- just to add some spice to the mix listed previously. Nothing too crazy, though bondage is hot...
I always like going out to movies, bowling, good restaurants, ballet/opera/symphony, karaoke, and ice skating. That's not to say I don't like doing anything else. I'm always open to new things. I like going to the mall, and looking at clothes, and sampling really good chocolate. As a general Europhile, I like real Dutch, Swiss, and German chocolates. As a Parisian-at-heart, French chocolates are the best. As a guy in my early 20's, my wallet prefers Roger's Chocolates, from Victoria BC, (OMG, I adore their Honey Truffles!!!) My favourite colour is anything sparkly and pretty.
