I love to cook (as can easily be seen below), and I am fairly proficient at it. Good food is something that everyone can agree on, I believe.
I am an avid lover of all media. Books, movies, television, music, art. It is all wonderful, and worth exploring. I spend quite a bit of my free time delving into nearly whatever media presents it self well.
I personally believe in finding out about people in person, rather than through a blurb on their profile. That is not to say necessarily face to face. One can learn much about another person through conversation alone.
I spend much of my vacation time on going to Medieval Combat events, which entails spending weekends down at a campground in northern Illinois fighting, drinking, cooking and enjoying the company of others.
I will say, that I am a huge fan of anything by Stantley Kubrick, Archer is the whittiest show on television at the moment, and long live metal.
(By these powers combined, he is Captain Planet)
