I guess I am a bit of a dilettante. I always have some new thing to be doing or trying to learn. Always a instrument I'd like to learn to play better (guitar), a project I need to put together (daylight alarm clock), some strange skill I'm working on acquiring (Spencarian script cursive).
I enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing -- all kinds of outdoor things, even though I can't go very often. I learned to drive a boat, ride a motorcycle, and fly a hang glider before I was licensed to drive. I learned skydive in college and paragliding is next on the list. For now I just ride a motorcycle. On that note, I suppose I am what some call an adrenaline junky. I like to think of them as calculated risks; the injury rates for skiers are much higher than for skydivers.
I'd definitely rather be relaxing in the woods somewhere than at a part, but being the wallflower who can start a fire at a winter party has its benefits.
Getting used to living in a real city.
Movies. Well, that's a little more difficult. Pretty much any movie with Steve McQueen. Oh, and The Iron Giant. Old westerns. Kurosawa. I also like terrible but entertaining movies. I've seen The Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift more times than anyone really should. WHY DOES THE CAR HAVE AN EYEBROW?
I listen to all kinds of music, I can't possible list a favorite. I like classical, electronic, rock, metal, hip-hop, bluegrass, jazz, blues, folk, ambient, I can't think of more genres, and reggae.
Never get tired of Led Zeppelin. Lots of club jazz and progressive metal lately.
More than any one favorite, I like finding new things to broaden my horizon. A foreign film, a writer with unique voice, or a new style of music are usually more interesting to me than what's popular now.
Food though? Mac n Cheese. Hands down. I love all kinds of food as well, and trying new foods. But what would life be without mac n cheese?
Whatever comes to mind.
I'm flattered by comments about my facial hair, but you should know that it varies constantly. I plan on growing it longer for the winter but might shave it off any time I get bored of it.
