I'm also hiking, dancing, writing, exploring Austin...
Building stuff: Furniture. Houses with the charity "Habitat for Humanity". Computer programs.
Navigating. Splitting wood with a wedge and sledge.
The Economist or Oscar Wilde for wit.
Diehard or Tombstone to get the blood pumping.
The West Wing to raise my hopes in humanity.
The Princess Bride, Firefly, Magritte, and Rodin. Because they rock!
As for food, anything with apples and cinnamon. Also great are my Aunt Joan's Pecan Pie or Grandma's cannoli.
My close friends.
Walks in the woods.
Paper and a good pen. (I'm trying to decide if my iPad Mini can replace those...)
Will online-dating cause natural selection for people who can write a good self-summary?
