I love to cook, but I can go months without making the same dish twice because I'd rather try something new. I'll probably steal bites from your plate at restaurants.
I'm a proud nerd. I collect math jokes. I'm likely to spew out facts about insect mating rituals, but you don't want me on your trivia team because I know nothing about pop culture. I revel in language, love board games (especially those that play in words), and will surely kick your butt on Words With Friends.
Movies: I see astonishingly few movies. Most people who are getting to know me decide they need to make me a list of movies I must see so that I can 1)be truly human and 2) carry on a pop-culturally literate conversation. No one has ever actually made that list. If given a choice, I prefer live theater to movies any day.
TV Shows: The West Wing, 30 Rock, Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, X-files, Criminal Minds, Planet Earth.
Music: Mostly folk.
Food: I love fruit of all kinds and in all contexts. I munch on fruit all the time and love to find ways of including it in savory dishes. I love veggies, too, and have been known to convert those who think they dislike veggies into people who ask for second helpings of Brussels sprouts. I have a terrible/terrific sweet tooth and am a sucker for cookies. I love spices, not just for heat but for depth of flavor. I love to try out new dishes, new cuisines, and new recipes. When I was in Africa, I ate both mopani worms and giraffe meat. In short, I love food.
Nah, I'm certainly happy I have the following in my life: my dog, the change of seasons, spices, farmers markets, comfy blankets, and live theater.
Note to straight men: If the primary reason you think I'm interesting is the fact that I'm bi, don't bother.
