Schadenfreude. That's my brain in one word.
I've driven across the US a few times, and have been to every coastal state (if you don't consider Alaska to be a "coastal state"). I love to travel when I can, and I'd like to visit some other places in the world soon.
Decided to change this since I haven't been essentially residing in Connecticut for well over a year now...
Also doing very nerdy projects, like engineering weather-balloon apparatus to approximate how much radiation Felix Baumgartner was exposed to on his record-breaking near-space jump. All because a friend said "I wonder how much radiation Felix Baumgartner was exposed to on his record-breaking near-space jump."
As of late, I've been spending most of my nights shedding my beer gut. This is a new thing for me, and I have to say I'm pleased at how well I'm doing.
I'm going to tackle at least one-third of the White Mountains 4000-footers this year... if life doesn't get in the way.
I'm told that my ability to recall song lyrics is impressive.
Friends tell me that I can pull it together and rock the microphone to some Run DMC karaoke style, even if I'm sloppy-drunk.
Also, I can drop some serious geek knowledge when I have to.
...and explain it about as well as Bill Nye can.
I like to take photographs with film, although I'm not sure how good I am at it.
Movies- Fight Club, Moon, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, The Big Lebowski, Star Wars (the Holy Trilogy- not that episode 1 2 3 bullshit), Pulp Fiction, The Blues Brothers, Clerks. I also like somewhat mindless action films like the first two Terminator films, the first three Die Hard films...
Television- The Colbert Report, Wilfred, Aqua Teen Hunger Force... Quantum Leap.
Music- I could go on for days. I'll just say that I'm not big on country, opera, or buttrock. If you've ever had Deltron 3030, Weezer's blue album, or any Miles Davis on heavy rotation for any length of time- we will get along swimmingly. I have a tendency to enjoy anything produced by Prince Paul and/or Dan the Automator, and a kind of picky selection of punk rock.
Food- I like food. Food tastes good. Juicy burgers, greasy fries, turkey legs, raw fish eyes.
Wait, no. Those are the things that MacGyver could never do without.
Also, I always have at least one song stuck in my head.
Or if you want to go kayaking. I like doing that.
