I own a small business and work in a restaurant a couple days a week.
I have kind of a flexible schedule lately, which has led to a lot more gym time. Constructive use I'd say. Staying active is an important part of my life, I value it in others too.
Junip, Joywave, Alt-J, Black Keys. Classic rock - Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, the Who, Stones. Radiohead. I've been into some more electronic type stuff lately. Some hip hop. I grew up listening to alternative/progressive type rock; Big Pearl Jam fan. NIN, Tool, A Perfect Circle. I listen to a lot o'music.
I frequently crave sushi. Good sushi. I like cooking/eating french food. All types are welcome though. I have a weakness, as many native Seattleites do, for cheap teriyaki. I need my Vietnamese food fix pretty frequently too, either Than Bros for Pho or Green Leaf. I love Middle Eastern food but after spending considerable time in the ME I have become a little picky... I love eating out, I kind of consider it professional development. And cooking at home.
Restaurants: I have a couple favorite sushi spots, walrus and carpenter, revel, art of the table, and some other ones. Just ask!
Friends and family
learning, especially from experiences
A sharp knife
Salt and pepper
Also, when I can start my (next) trip through one or all of: Europe, South America, Southeast Asia, China, or the Middle East (again).
Also also, why are there so many vegetarians on OkC?
I secretly really like Pretty Woman. In a manly way of course.
