I am dedicated, discerning, and observant
I prefer the mountains to the beach. I have been a big-time cross country skier for four seasons. I view a day alpine skiing as a day I could have been nordic skiing, but I still like to downhill once or twice a year.
Music: My favorite aspect of music is color, so I like music with a variety of sounds. This means I like electric guitars, electronic music, bands with more than one vocalist (e.g. Arcade Fire, Alice in Chains), and orchestral works that make good use of the different instruments.
Food: Pears. Raspberries. Honeycrisp apples so big I get tired of eating them. Poultry meat and chocolate: both dark, eaten separately. Lamb. Spanish sheep's milk cheese. Orange juice with as much pulp as possible. Cheddar should be so sharp it cuts your mouth, otherwise why bother?
