I've been engaged in a lot of carpentry recently...would you like to know more?
I have many ideas for things I want to build, but they tend to get stuck in my head or on paper. I'm slowly learning how to fully realize them. I HAVE helped produce two one-off electric cars, so that's pretty neat.
I also read a whole heck of a lot, more so online than I used to.

Listening intently, and then giving awkward advice!
Books: Cryptonomicon; Adiamante; Guns, Germs and Steel; Cosmos; A Cavern of Black Ice. A Fire Upon the Deep. The Laundry Files novels. Vernor Vinge and Charles Stross are both great.
Movies: Alien(s), Office Space, Ron Burgundy, Inception, Pan's Labyrinth. Hansel and Gretel and GI Joe Retaliation were very good B movies as far as I'm concerned. RDJs continuing smarminess as Tony Stark/Iron Man is fun. I'm looking forward to Civil War.
Music: I can and do listen to pretty much everything, but I'm a classical/ metal head at heart. Beethoven, Bach, Iron Maiden, Manowar, Clint Black, Snoop Dogg, I like them all. I've gotten back into Tiesto and Darude recently.
Just no screaming or thrash please.
I put on the local classical station, KMFA 89.5, when I read or cook.
About food... seriously... CHEESE. I love me some cheddar(age it in whiskey, or a jar, or whiskey in the jar).
A medium-rare rib-eye is hard to beat , particularly with a spinach, tomato and goat cheese salad. Sushi can be good too. Uchi's hot dishes are fantastic, but the sushi itself is beaten by several other places. Ramen Tatsuya and Michi Ramen are both great, want to go?
Clown Shoes Brewing: Undead Party Crasher is both delicious and awesomely labeled.
The ability to read.
The Internet and associated hardware.
"Mostly" vegetarians - the way this is defined by different individuals is funny. I think most of the US population qualifies, personally.
One person out of 7 billion, on one planet out of many billions (some of which we may have already found to be human habitable!), in one solar system in a galaxy that it takes light 100,000 years to cross in at least one universe containing more galaxies than we can count, stretching back at least 13 billion years.
Hooray for Tesla Motors - 200k+ pre-orders is amazing! And SpaceX: They just landed their smaller reusable rocket for the first time at sea, second time in all!
And Gary Gygax (on DC 15+)
I like dogs, cats and other fuzzies. ;3
You like your nerds slightly on the quiet and quirky side in public and highly animated and excitable in private.
You have more to say than "CORGI!"
I'm his 3rd packmate, after his humans. More belly rubs and squeals of glee and less poop duty that way.
