I'm also a bit sporty, and have become a little obsessed with competitive cycling (Lance notwithstanding). I have a lot of different interests, although I'm trying to keep most of them balanced in my life.
Aside from the cycling, I also enjoy cooking and soccer. I'm a little spazzy and bump my shins on things a lot. At any given time, I'm kind of a walking collection of muscle and joint injuries. My other interests are as follows:
I'm a big fan of most forms of decadent music. I enjoy the visual arts (everything from Flemish painters, to early 20th century graphic design, to comics); film (Akira Kurosawa, Terry Gilliam, Terrence Malick, and Wes Anderson, to name a couple of directors); food (cooking and dining out); and lots of coffee.
I have probably listed too many different things in my profile (again, balance), but I also don't believe in hiding one's enthusiasm for something. I like people who are openly enthusiastic about the things that interest them- the whole "over it" pose gets very tiring. That being said- here's a list of other random things: Tom Waits, Hayao Miyazaki, Belgian beer, Los Bros Hernandez, chili, Old-timey music, scotch, pastries, steak, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the smell of plywood, Medieval music, The Arsenal, animals with people's names, Old Style beer, not being hit by cars, White Castle, gin martinis, and making lists of stuff.
