Cheerful optimism tempered by a dash of cynicism make for a pretty good outlook on life, I reckon, so I try to go about things with that in mind.
I am warm, jovial, and laid-back.
I still hope to retire at 55 so I can do some travelling and hopefully get the novel that's meant to be in each of us down on paper, but we'll see how that goes.
I've also spent a bit of time practising martial arts, and although I'll never entirely get over my fairly rubbish spatial awareness, I'm pretty handy at a few aspects of it, despite no training in the past couple of years.
Beyond that, I'm not really good at anything. But that doesn't stop me enjoying a wide variety of pastimes.
Films I'd happily watch many times include: The Shawshank Redemption, Jerry Maguire, The Seven Samurai, Airplane!, Fight Club, Ghostbusters, A Night to Remember, Bladerunner, Flash Gordon and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I also greatly admired the cinematography of Sin City -- one of the most visually impressive films I've seen -- though the comics are better in terms of story.
I can be a bit more unequivocal about foods -- I enjoy Cantonese, Thai and northern Indian cuisine, but bangers and mash is a perennial favourite. :)
