I can be a bit of a homebody, but that's more habit than inclination. Beer and a wandering conversation at a local brewery are welcome any time.
I tend to focus on function rather than form in my everyday life, but can meander through a good art museum for hours.
I write in short, choppy sentences, with lots of comma splices. You might have noticed this already.
Learning. Usually by talking to myself as if I were a student. It's a bit odd, but it works for me.
Managing people, speaking to large audiences, and navigating workplace politics. If you had told me in high school that one day I'd be even mildly competent at any of the above I'd have called you a liar.
Cat's Cradle, or just about anything Vonnegut
The Hitchhikers Guide Pseudo-Trilogy
Anything by Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Brian Greene, Richard Dawkins, Oliver Sacks, Robert Sapolsky, Chris Hedges, Isaac Asimov, or Tom Stoppard.
I haven't had a great deal of time for my own reading lately, which makes me sad.
Amelie, I <3 Huckabies, Firefly, Damages, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, Adventure Time, Orange is the New Black, Sideways, How It's Made, Good Eats, Bones, most Oscar bait.
Anything Miyazaki or Coen Brothers.
OPB just about constantly. A Prairie Home Companion, Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, Car Talk, and Radiolab are favorites.
Music-wise, pretty much anything but mainstream country.
Lately a lot of Beastie Boys, Justice, Soul Coughing, and Aaron Copeland.
Home cooked anything, with the exception of fish (to which I'm allergic), and eggplant (which is gross).
I love Thai food and sushi, but the fish allergy denies me most of my old favorites.
An interesting problem to ponder

They can take your Oxford comma when they pry it from your cold, dead hands.
You're down with the NPPP.
You want to get together and smash the kyriarchy.
