Making bad puns
Giving back rubs (will happily accept as well)
Empathizing with animals (including people)
Slogging through unpleasant environments with minimal complaint.
I really like a wide range of films, from some really offbeat and critically un-loved (Six String Samurai, Toys, Shoot Em Up, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Secretary) to the seriously powerful (Beauty is Embarrassing, Requiem for a Dream, After The Rain, The Square and Fruitvale Station). I've worked on movies before, but I'm still able to check my tradesman's hat at the door (please let me know if you'd rather I left it on).

I'm a sucker for a good beat, a clever turn of lyric or a melody that gets me to dance. Some all time favorites include:
Eric & Magill
Just about anything except Dilly/Dove Bars and things with MSG in them.
I guess I'd go with:
Some form of music.
An organizer of some kind (mostly use my phone at present)
Inspiring friends and colleagues
Access to reference materials (online or offline)
Some basic tools to build and fix things with.
A map of wherever I am.
Oh! And a towel. Everyone should know where their towel is...
