I'm really into craft beer and started brewing my own. It's still a work in progress, but I just finished a great summer ale with orange and lemon zest that I am excited about
I cook my steaks and salmon on a solid, 2” thick block of salt. And I mean that literally. If you don’t believe me, ask. I love talking about my salt!
I'm also a huge fan of Marlins baseball (source of my user name, btw). I try to spread awareness of the Marlins wherever I go. Since they're so bad, it can be easy to forget about them.
I adopted a 3 yr old Shit Tzu who I absolutely adore. His teeth are so crooked, I think he might be British.
I'm really into exercising. In the past three years, I started two new sports: orienteering and curling:
In orienteering, you get a map, go in the woods, figure out the course, and race to get to the end. There’s no worse feeling than being hopelessly lost in the woods, dead tired, while the clock is ticking by. Ok, that’s an exaggeration. But merely finishing a race feels like such an accomplishment.
If you’re not familiar with curling, basically the object is to slide 42 pound rocks across a sheet of ice to get your rocks closer to a goal than the other team’s rocks. Curling is a lot harder than it looks on tv and it’s my new goal in life to not be completely terrible at it. I got a long way to go.
I'm mad good at Super Mario 3. I've played that game as far back as I can remember.
I know a ridiculous amount of Simpsons trivia and quotes.
Movies: Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. The dialogue in both those films is hilarious and outshines the action. Also, The Dark Knight, Wall-E, Robocop.
TV: Worker and Parasite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ubckx7X2Nd4
Music: Ellie Goulding is my new music crush. I listen to everything. Mainly, I've been listening to Blaqk Audio, Shiny Toy Guns, and Lana Del Rey recently. And, I feel like I need to include Rage Against the Machine, Streetlight Manifesto and Bad Religion for old time's sake.
Food: Comfort food: meatloaf, pot pies, stews, etc.
