I am a big fan of learning, skepticism, any snuggly animal, sci-fi, and general geekery. If you are embarrassed by enthusiasm or annoyed by (hopefully) reasoned arguments, seek elsewhere.
Please note that I have a rescue macaw, and she is not very friendly(yet, I hope). Since she has another 30-50 years to her lifespan, it seems pertinent that anyone interested be aware that we are a package deal.
Sometimes stage manage for local theater productions, fun times!
I. Love. Podcasts. Listen at least 40 hours per week (commute, plus while at work), so it's a bit of an obsession -- mostly science, skepticism, politics, and TV show reviews
Definitely need to attend more performances that I don't play in, but they're less fun to attend solo. Plus... I'm cheap.
* spouting trivia
* laughing too loudly
* Being blunt
* demonstrating "too much" forcefulness of opinion. Do please dissent, lively debates are good. The worst thing you can do is smile and nod when you think you have more/better information on a subject
*Remembering what I do not need to know.
I like green. A lot.
My hair is usually in a bun the size of a softball, and I'm what folks charitably call a "big girl."

Music: Camille Saint-Saens Symphony No. 3, Mouserat, Ol' Man River as sung by Paul Robeson, Musicals(almost all), Oystein Baadsvik, most Christmas music, Beetles(duh...) and Oldies in general, all ensemble pieces with good tuba parts. ALL. Recently performed Bartok Concerto for Orchestra and I loved every second of it!
Food is delicious so long as it is not too spicy. Some favorites are: maki, pizza, alfredo, buttered toast, broccoli, Cabot Orne Meadows, carrots, potatoes, cookie dough, seafood salad, cheeseburgers, port
How come I can't sing bass, alas. Are you a bass/baritone? We should talk. Or, rather, you should talk, I'll listen.
If anyone has ever been annoyed at how good your memory is, we could compare horror stories
