I'm from the north - I always miss the snow down here and ski as opportunities arise [not as often as I would like].
I enjoy things like writing computer programs to solve non-obvious problems, ultimate, piano, making lists, watching good television, watching good/terrible movies, drinking scotch.
BS in physics, BA in math, working on a physics PhD.
TV: Shows like Psych, Sherlock, BSG, Burn Notice, Firefly, Boston Legal, Hustle, GoT, ...
Literature: Most of my reading in non-fiction [read: science] but I do try to squeeze some time in for classics, sci-fi, etc. Currently soaring through The Count of Monte Cristo and re-reading the LOTR with the Silmarillion because I missed it the first time around.
Food: Mexican and Indian in particular, things with food in general. I also enjoy various whiskies: bourbon [I figure since I live in TN I should familiarize myself with bourbon] and scotch.
