* lots of "self help", LOL!

too many kids books to list (I especially love the Sandra Boynton
I seldom watch TV. I am fascinated by space, the sea, nature's
awesomeness. Sometimes I watch that sort of programming.
Much of my information consumption is online (TED, reddit, news,
etc). I've not subscribed to cable programming in a very long time.
Most of my work is done online as a Web programmer and consultant.
Tech is awesome; the benefits to society are obvious. For all of
tech's upsides though, nature is always better. Lately I haven't
been getting enough nature. I want more nature, dammit. Just went
sledding today. Sledding is great but snowboarding would be more
fun. I love x-country skiing and snowshoeing, too. I'd probably
like backcountry skiing, too but I've not done that in these hills
Wallace and Grommet movies are great. I like a variety in movies.
Something that keeps you thinking. Almost anything with aliens or
about aliens. I have a fascination with alien movies. I don't think
that makes me weird. You decide for yourself. What was that alien
movie where the aliens were stuck in South Africa? I liked that
one. Moon was pretty awesome - though there weren't really any
aliens. (Thank you to the pretty lady that reminded me the movie
was called, "District 9". Did you like it?)
For music, I am enjoying David Gray, Sade, Pink Floyd, Annie
Lennox, The Cure (old skool!), Sarah Mclaughlin (cheesy? No, sexy
voice), some piano, all kinds of solo guitar work, and dash of
classical, some hip hop or rap, (why do I like Eminem? Not sure),
CSN, Zeppelin, any and all jazz/funk/infusion. I love sax and most
saxy music. The most sax I have ever had was during Mardi Gras in
New Orleans. Nice!
Food? Veggies (all of 'em) , Thai, any pasta, pizza (of course), I
enjoy cooking with lots of spice. Breakfast is a specialty. I like
pickled things and salt. I drink coffee from every corner of the
planet. I buy it fresh, grind it fresh, brew it fresh and prefer it
hot and black. My life was changed for the better when I found the
Aeropress single cup brewer. Coffee is amazing when done right. Get
one for yourself. You're welcome!
