I like challenges. The harder the better. It's why I'm good a my job, managing software engineers in a support organization (seven figure deal on the line and the shit already on the fan? Let's rock!). It's why I like martial arts. It's also why I believe I'll be successful as a writer. Finishing a short story is hard. Sticking with it past "the end" to find and fix all of the problems big and small is harder. Getting it published, whew! not easy.
Also, I just bought a house so I'm always doing something with that. If you find energy efficiency sexy, ask me about my new windows.
Comics: Warren Ellis, Matt Fraction, Kelly Sue DeConnic
Movies: Doctor Strangelove (or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb), This is Spinal Tap, The Big Lebowski, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
TV: Anything Joss Whedon (big Buffy and Firefly fan), Chuck, The Black List, Constantine and I have a habit of watching any bad show a friend has worked on, even after they've left (not counting reality shows. I love my friends and all, but not enough to watch Big Brother).

My laptop (or at least the data on it)
My sense of humor
A hook kick to my opponent's head
And why on Earth anyone would refer to the gods by their Roman names. It's like blasphemy or something.
Or do something fascinating.
Or do something dreadfully boring, but can talk about it in ways that make it seem interesting.
Or you think I have good taste in books, movies, TV and/or music
Or you think my taste sucks, but that you can save me.
Or if you want to spar sometime.
I dunno. If you're still reading, go ahead. I'm easily amused.
