While I love my career and work hard at being exceptional at it I also enjoy time off and enjoying everything else that life has to offer. Love exploring and traveling, whether neighborhoods, restaurants or bars around DC or to a new country.
I prefer dive bars to more trendy bars/clubs. The Ramones (or MGMT) for that matter to U2 (shudder!). A half-smoke at Ben's Chili Bowl or a slice of excellent pizza works for me as does a delicious dinner at Unum. Best barbecue I've had was the Yakitori of unknown parts of unknown meats in one of the holes-in-the-wall the little alley next to the Shinjuku train station in Tokyo! I also like using smiley faces and web abbreviations like "wtf?!" They're just helpful in conveying intonations of voice, facial expressions and such. I enjoy, and appreciate, levity, and I love to laugh and be amused.
