I have absolutely no felony convictions, although I did get a speeding ticket once.
I've been fortunate enough to have had some amazing adventures. I have taken a zip-line off the Great Wall of China, hung out with Anthony Bourdain in rural Thailand, jumped out of an airplane, and eaten at the finest restaurant in New Orleans. And while I do appreciate down-time, in general I think there's a pretty good balance.
I cook a mean chicken piccata, as well as a few other choice dishes.
I love writing, especially humorous observations on the absurdity of life.
I have a great ear for languages, although I can't for the life of me reproduce a good southern accent (despite having lived pretty much my whole life below the Mason-Dixon line).

But why six? Is there some kind of algorithm for figuring out a person's personality where you need the six favorite things, and five just isn't enough? But I digress....
I also think it's fascinating that I have a device that can let me communicate with essentially anyone on the globe, freeze an image that can then be seen by all my friends, and allow me to update my OkCupid profile when I should be working. Technology is amazing.
