I'm a trained chef (with a plaque and everything), and at times a violinist if the occasion should call for it. Beyond that, I'm a political junkie, I obsess over animals, and if I wasn't a gym rat before, I am now that I found a place that will let me bring my dog.
Like I said before, I'm a bit of a gym rat. That said, I have the agility of a shopping cart. So, you'll be glad I'm there when you reach for that 40 pack of Arrowhead at Costco, though not so much when you need a center for your pickup basketball game.
Catchphrase - a little more practice, and I think I could go semi-pro
Lifting heavy things, putting them down - honestly, I'm not a steak head. I'm either listening to a Harry Potter audiobook or The Economist broadcast when I'm at the gym.
Trivial Pursuit - except for when it comes to getting the orange wedge.
Eating all of the ice cream - like, all of it.
All things David Sedaris, A Brief History of Time, Momofuku Milk, Tartine -- I read cookbooks as though they were thriller novels.
Basically anything... Andrew Bird, The National, Paul Simon, The Shins, Belle & Sebastian, The Beatles, Yo La Tengo, Elliot Smith, Vampire Weekend, John Williams, Joe Purdy, I kind of run the gamut when it comes to music I like
