I love being around people and am a bit of an extrovert and an easy conversationalist.
I love cooking and entertaining at home, going out and listening to live music and a good local wheat beer. I enjoy a good bottle of wine but can never seem to remember the label. And I LOVE a good bottle of champagne and can always conjure up a good reason to pop a cork. Though, I have to admit that I find myself doing it less and less frequently these days. Hangovers come waaayyy too easily to me and I really don't want to waste all that time in recovery mode. I have way too much to do.
I enjoy a good book on history and believe that every home library should include a copy of Howard Zinn's A People's History of the US. I've pretty much read everything David McCullough has ever written. I guess I'd have to say that my favorite genre is 20th century biographies.
I exercise every day. Nothing too intense, but I need to walk or get on my elliptical for at least 45 min to an hour or I just don't feel right. It's my only addiction. I have a treadmill desk at work and walk a bunch on that while I'm working. I LOVE it!
Family is really important to me. I like mine and appreciate how fortunate I am in this respect. I know that you can't pick your family, but it is really important that the person I am with is connected to whatever family he has.
