I love to cook (as can easily be seen below), and I am fairly proficient at it. Good food is something that everyone can agree on, I believe.
I am an avid lover of all media. Books, movies, television, music, art. It is all wonderful, and worth exploring. I spend quite a bit of my free time delving into nearly whatever media presents it self well.
I personally believe in finding out about people in person, rather than through a blurb on their profile. That is not to say necessarily face to face. One can learn much about another person through conversation alone.
