I'll fill you out when I'm ready!!!!
Away from the job I find myself still reading up on what's new in the world of movies and cars, as well as looking for opportunities to fill up the memory card of my camera.
Recommending cars for friends/family that are searching for a new one.
Talking about book/comic book to film adaptations at length at the bar.
Surprising my friends when they least expect it (with varied results).
Using passive-aggressive sarcasm during my workouts (really good at that).

2. A way to listen to music
4. A way to take pictures
***Yes, I did not include my cellphone. Nobody that I know ever calls me. And vice versa. Plus, I didn't include family and friends because they are not things.
Whether or not I can read the Harry Potter series, all of it. Yes, I know, how can I love books, work in a bookstore, but have not read them yet?! And I'm aware that the films (which I love) only scratch the surface. But as I have a hard time finishing books - even if I really like them - the H.P. series (and The Lord of the Rings for that matter) is my Mt. Everest.
Future road trips. I love the road and the solitude it offers, not to mention the sights and sounds on the way to point B. Plus, everyone is usually asking me where I'm going next. (To be honest, once you've completed the once-in-a-lifetime road trip, subsequent trips feel less and less fulfilling. Except visiting the Field of Dreams baseball field.)
Adding and subtracting from my dream car garage.
And there's barely anything in my fridge.
You know how to use proper grammar, both written and verbal.
You can take a picture of yourself that doesn't also include the camera-phone you're using to take it.
You want to.
