I enjoy discussing subjects most folks would not normally think about, or might laugh about. I have a penchant for seeing movies. All kinds. I don't understand folks that don't like going out to a movie, and prefer to watch them at home. I require a half & half Icee, but after seeing Food Inc, I don't think I can enjoy it the same as I once did. If I miss the previews before hand, I'll get irritated. I have a bad habit of starting religious and/or political conversations in large group settings. Bowling is the only "sport" I get excited about, but I haven't bowled in a long time and that's not very exciting. I go through phases: from heavy reading to heavy tube exposure. I find infomercials hilarious, and sometimes stay up too late watching them. I love to go to comedy shows, but worry the people I invite will not find what I find funny, funny at all.
Every year I volunteer as a Host at the Telluride Film Festival. In my free time I'm fine tuning my own business plan.
I would like to travel more. Places like Teotihuacan, Tiahuanaco, Ollantaytambo, Puma Puncu, Baalbek & Gobekli Tepe fascinate me!
Looking at bars that are for sale in NYC area, moving there, and buying one.
* If you enjoy reading "young-adult, fantasy fiction": Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games...etc, I'll probably give you shit for it. Hopefully, you can take it.

FOOD: I enjoy food. I will cross great distances to grab the perfect bite. Sometimes I'll eat the same item, on the same day of the week, for a long time, because it's just that great.
