Skiing and snowboarding don't really work for me. I like to stay up or out late Friday nights then rest up on Saturday cause I like to do that on Saturday nights too. But the right person with the right plans for the next day can convince me to go to bed early. I like being in the mountains, though. Camping, hiking, and weekend drives are things I'm into, but I never saw the appeal of climbing 14ers. Anyone want to show me what all the fuss is about?
I like to find things to appreciate, drive cars, look at stuff in the sky, strike up conversations with strangers, wander around the city, and spend time with the fantastic people I’m lucky enough to have as friends.

It has been brought to my attention that there are a couple of Moose bands out there...I'm talking about the one from the 90s that doesn't have a song about a snowcat (?).
Anything out of a smoker, sashimi, breakfast spaghetti, steaks, drunken noodles, egg beers, the occasional vegetable.
A good pair of boots. I walk a lot.
A dishwasher. I'm really into the idea of machines doing work instead of me.
All those things I wanted as a kid (sailboat, jet, racecar, etc) that I still want.
Also, how much I want to “have” a lawyer. I want someone whose job it is to keep me out of trouble. Just in case, or something.
