At work, I'm part of a small team at a big company. We count things and use the numbers to make other things better! I've also spent some time looking for the deep secrets of the universe with big machines and fancy math.
On TV: The Wire and Mad Men when I'm feeling serious, New Girl when I'm not. Radio: Planet Money, Fresh Air, This American Life.
Food: Good, holey, yeast bread I've made myself. And, after deprivation in Europe: peanut butter.
Occasionally: dancing with profound lack of grace at a concert.
Rarely, but not rarely enough: working hard, at work.
