Let's see, what is there to say about myself? I'm too nice for my own good according to some. I love my eclectic set of hobbies, and probably spend a little bit too much time on them (although I gotta say I do love being able to shuffle a deck of cards with one hand... admittedly not the most useful skill). Most photographs of me come out terribly, I tend to prefer the handful of me actually doing stuff. While I rarely have time for it, I love to draw, and have been told I'm pretty good at it; I'll let you judge for yourself.
(If you'd like to see the rest of the art I have up send me a message and I'll send you the link and password.)
I like action, comedy and adventure movies. Anything by Mel Brooks is golden.
As far as music goes, I tend to stick to rock. Anything from 1960 through today, that has good vocals is fine. Specifically I'm a fan of Third Eye Blind, The Crash Motive, Mark Knopfler, some of the new Linkin Park, SR-71, Better than Ezra, J. R. Richards, Dishwalla, Jimmy Eat World, Dave Matthews Band and the list goes on and on and on.
Then we come to food... I like food. As long as its good and tasty I am normally pretty happy. I love Thai food, and homemade Chinese. I love to cook, even if I don't get the chance to do so often. For me, the more complicated the recipe, and the better the ingredients, the better the food. My personal favorites are Grilled Beef Teriyaki with homemade Teriyaki glaze, and homemade chipotle style burritos.
As far as drinks go, I like a lot of things, but I don't generally drink that much; this is primarily because my tastes are kinda pricey. I like wine, particularly Cabernet Sauvignons, Pinot Noirs, and Syrahs. I like some beer, particularly some darker beers. Then there's my favorite category, rum. I don't drink Captain, or Bacardi. I'm a fan of most aged sipping rums, preferably those aged 12 years or more. My personal favorites are Appleton 12 yr, El Dorado 15 yr, Barbencourt 15 yr, and Cruzan Single Barrel Estate. As I said before, I like my rum... but I don't drink too much of it, rarely more than a couple of drinks in any given week.

I brought snacks to an eclipse, and sat outside for two hours (from 2:00-4:00 AM) in below freezing temperatures... it was awesome!
