For further information, read the rest of my profile.
When I'm not doing that, I spend a lot of time solving puzzles of most stripes, which isn't always a solo activity. The puzzling community is a great one and I do a lot of hunts, tournaments, room-escape games, and conventions. I also construct puzzles occasionally, though that's waned in recent years.
I travel quite a bit within the lower 48 in pursuit of puzzling, sporting events, seeing friends, seeing family, or some combination of these.
I also watch sports, attend pub quizzes, take long walks, and enjoy many other activities that are known for being activities that people enjoy.

 Loudness, I mean, not size. That would be weird. Though I could say "I'm feeling pretty small right now." ...Let's just move on.
Movies: I usually like comedies; I like them smart but can do with a dumb one sometimes. I've been collecting the MST3K box sets despite actually finding the time to watch very few of them. Quotes frequently come to my mind unbidden, usually from Airplane!, Clue, Major League, My Cousin Vinny, UHF, etc.
TV: Comedy here too. Solidly in the rotation: @midnight, Last Week Tonight, Modern Family, Archer, Sunny, Louie, The League, South Park. Also, That Mitchell & Webb Look, like most British comedy, is utter genius but BBC America never seems to show it anymore.
Music: I love garage/sleaze/glam/hard rock, melodic/speed metal (I stop well short of the dark death stuff)... I think I could live in Scandinavia just for the concerts. I routinely find myself unable to stop listening to Hardcore Superstar. I also really like The Hellacopters, Imperial State Electric, Gluecifer, Turbonegro, Backyard Babies, The Hives, Kvelertak... the list goes on.
Food: I imagine my tastes are not atypical for a 30ish male. Plus this section is long enough.
Exercise. It's probably a stretch to call myself a gym rat, but it's important that I work this in. It helps my sleep and my mood. A ritual that's become important to me, at least during DST, is walking the two miles home from work while listening to the ballgame. (I endure the Sisyphean nightmare that is Atlanta Braves fanhood. No, I don't like the Chop either. Yes, I happen to agree that we suck.) I credit it with my improved health in recent years.
Humor. A good comedy show or banter with friends is always a good lift. On a nice Saturday or Sunday by myself, I'll combine this with the previous item by taking a long walk all around town with a few episodes of the Never Not Funny podcast.
My favorite music. Also good for nicely pulverizing a bad mood. I have to try very hard to keep from irritating my co-workers with desk drumming.
Alone time. I like having a decently full calendar and in general I'm trying to say yes to more things, but I'm also thankful for those weeknights when I can just come home and watch TV or clean or play a video game or something.
Chapstick. Just kidding.
Hockey. I'm a big sports fan in general, but dammit, hockey is just awesome. And it'll be even better when the Hartford Whalers make their triumphant return. [blasts Brass Bonanza]
I also think a lot about how I can be a better person. This has led to some positive changes, and I'm trying to make it more about that and less about simply mulling over regrets.
Also, I don't drink coffee, I hate avocado, and I have neither Netflix nor Hulu Plus. I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to live here.
I'm not really actively looking around here much for the moment. That might change sooner or later, but for now, I'm open to receiving messages and I'm likely to respond.
