Trips to the zoo are frequent and are also frequently jarred by people who don't read the signs next to the animals they paid to look at. But zoos are great and I'm not afraid to take you to one. I like to cook; it's science for your mouth. Photography and coffee are awesome. Red wine is good, and so is the occasional bourbon.
I will kick your ass at Skeeball.
I have an exceptionally good sense of direction.
When I was in South Africa last year, I read "Brazzaville Beach" by William Boyd. Even though it's about chimpanzees, which don't live in South Africa, and takes place in Congo. Great fiction, but based on real researchers and places.
