Making obscure references.
Coming up with silly song lyrics.
Taking care of people who are important to me.
Fixing your computer.
I don’t watch much TV. It’s not that I disapprove of it, but I can usually find something else that I need or want to do. At various times, I’ve been into the Sopranos, South Park, Rome (it’s a shame that HBO made only one season of it), and Babylon 5. I go in and out of being interested in Game of Thrones, but that’s largely because I loved the books.
I love Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music. My favorite karaoke song is Ziggy Stardust. This may suggest that I have underlying glam tendencies. My fondness for going to piano bars to sing showtunes may suggest to some that I have other underlying tendencies, but that’s just a stereotype.
Also, to confound those who want to find a pattern here, I was really into the Grateful Dead in high school, and I still enjoy them sometimes.
I have a thing for cassoulet. Every few years, in fact, I get possessed by something or other and become compelled to make one, which means three weekends of cooking. I mean, first you have to make the goose confit, and then...
Most of the time, though, I’m happy to throw a hunk of meat on a grill and enjoy it with a salad and a batch of what we call "cracktatoes".
Good food and drink.
The vast explanatory power of the Dunning-Kruger effect.
Also, what I’m making for dinner.
You think we might enjoy meeting each other, and you’re OK with my wife seeing your message.
