Working on being healthier. I try to eat right and get enough exercise to make a dent in my life.
Lately I have picked up basic pinball repair as a hobby. I do not own any pins but I do volunteer at the pinball museum in Alameda helping to maintain the machines.
I live less than a mile from my job so I walk to work everyday. I build & maintain computer systems for a hospital. I like that my work has a positive impact on peoples lives.
I used to play more video games in my life but I have replaced that habit with more board games and tabletop gaming usually preferring to game in person than via some sort of network connection.
I love going to the movies and it is not uncommon for me to go to the local movie theater more than once a week.
Movies: Big Lebowski, Twelve Angry Men, Empire Strikes Back, Amelie, Spirited Away, The Kid Stays in the Picture, Tron, Cabin in the Woods
TV: Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, The Wire
Food: I'm fairly adventurous when it comes to food. I love trying new places and new types although there is something about Chinese food in general that doesn't respond well with me so I stay away. Love Indian, sushi, Mexican, Italian, etc. I love to cook as well.
My Family. They don't live in the area anymore but I try to call the parents at least once a week to keep in touch.
My Karate Dojo: They are a wonderful extended family. Also it is a magical oasis of peaceful sanity in my life.
My kindle: I am on my 3rd one and have been without it twice in my life. People in my neighborhood remark at me when I am not walking down the street with my nose in my kindle.
My Tivo: I was an early adopter so I had a DVR for over a decade now along with the TV watching habits that go along with not watching this as they air most of the time. I love not having to worry about watching TV because my DVR will automatically tape it for me.
My karate. I spend a lot of time thinking about how to improve my karate. What I can improve, what I need to practice more, and what I can do to help fortify my skills. When I am in the dojo especially the only thing I am thinking about is my karate.
Problems at work. Sometimes I need to be away from the problem to come up with the solutions that are a little outside the box
