Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm not a music-, movie-, food-, coffee-, beer-, or any-other-kind-of-snob, and nor do I feel like this section gives too much insight into a person's personality, but anyway...

Books: The Prisoner's Dilemma, Ender's Game, Into Thin Air, The Kite Runner, I Robot, Cannery Row, Lost Horizon, Concerning the Fountain, The Day of the Jackal, Right Ho Jeeves, and of course Harry Potter. Hated: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

Movies: the Bourne trilogy, Gladiator, 25 to Life, The Fountain, Strictly Sexual, GATTACA, I Am Sam, In Bruges, Love Actually, The Notebook, V for Vendetta, The Painted Veil, The Crucible, Dinner for Schmucks, The Count of Monte Cristo.

Shows: So many people on here list Dexter, so I gave it a shot and got hooked. Modern Family. 24 is an oldie but a goodie.

Music: I dislike most country and most classic rock. And the Spanish stations that come on as I scan the radio. Beyond that, as to what I DO like... that's very hard to summarize or predict, but your best bets would be from hip hop, electronic, Top 40, quality classical/movie scores, coffee-shop-style music, modern rock, and jazz.

Food: I deeply love both Ethiopian & Indian food when eating out, which happens very rarely because I'm kind of a health/fitness nut and also very frugal.
The six things I could never do without
sunshine and warm weather
hot showers
free time
non-free time (i.e. some kind of purpose)
a few people who really care about me and understand me
On a typical Friday night I am
Completely ignoring any particular focus on Friday night, here are some things that I enjoy and do from time to time:

bike riding
running
lifting
books
Internet/TV

And here are some activities that I am able to do only infrequently but enjoy a lot:

mafia/werewolf/assassin (a "parlor game" i *really* love)
drink/club/dance
snowboard
bike tour
international travel
amusement park (love thrill rides)
wilderness backpacking
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm in a really high percentile among men for tearing up while watching movies and TV shows.
You should message me if

Grab life by the horns!
