Seriously, I enjoy ocean Kayaking; love adventure; generally fall asleep reading; sing far too loudly - considering my meager talent - while driving; and during law school, made cash as an extra on Boy Meets World and via appearances on lame shows like The Weakest Link, Blind Date, and anything else that would've shamed me had it ended up on You-tube.
Following a myriad of 12 step programs, I've come to grips with the fact that I am one heck of a geek. I love Lord of the Rings, have caught entire seasons of American Idol, once went out in public in a cat in the hat costume, and know half the words to that MMM-Bop song from a few years back.
'Course, I also love hosting dinner parties, am aware that white socks and sandals should rarely be mixed, and would never confuse the "gym" with a dirty word ... so I'm relatively safe to introduce to the friends.
Now? I'm a small business and intellectual property (primarily patent) lawyer who moved to Nashville to open his own law firm.
As I used to make a living screenwriting, though .... and as my family is still heavily involved ... I haven't parted ways with that side of my occupational world.
Lastly, a tidge (it's a word, don't tease) of my income comes from publicly speaking to the chronically ill and their families. After I've had my law firm open for a bit (JUST starting that up), I'm gonna' devote more time to the speakin' stuff.
Seriously, I suppose soccer or throwing dinner parties (can that 2nd one be considered a skill?) are on my forte list.
TV shows: Dr. Who, Dateline, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Parks and Recreation, and Dexter ... and a few of those cooking reality shows.
Books: The Great Gatsby, anything by Twain, Candide, The Hobbit, Walt Whitman poetry, and stuff by this author named Erik Larsen.
Food: seafood (which includes sushi)! I also like trying and exploring new ethnic cuisines
And lastly ... music: oh gosh Everything from 80's to Rage Against the Machine to Broadway tunes. I'll admit ... I'm out of the loop when it comes to indy groups though
2. Art, literature, movies (and the "open-to-the-public" buildings that house all 3 of them) ...
3. Dr. Who (definitely my nerdy guilty pleasure)
4. Rudolph and his nose so bright
5. soap ... THANK GOD someone invented soap
6. XM Radio (or is it all Sirius now...?)
