There are spells where I read quite a bit. Mostly old stuff. The newer stuff I read are almost always recommended to me. I find it difficult to refuse, or give up on, a lent book. That is one of my failings. Other times I don't read at all. Still other times, I fall somewhere in the middle. I believe I am unique in this.
PS - I don't like sports. To some, that will be a turn off. To others, that's not such a bad thing. Mind you, I've played them when I was a kid, and when the mood takes me, I play them on occasion. And I'm no slouch. I'm in good shape, and can become amusingly competitive. But watching a professional or college sports game to me is as exciting as watching NASCAR.
PPS - I don't enjoy NASCAR either.
Sometimes I go running. I ran the Austin half-marathon this last year. I need to do more of that.
East Austin Studio Tour is my favorite two weeks of the year.
Also, I bicycle to work and play. I live close to downtown, its good exercise, its faster (when you calculate how much time it takes to find a parking spot), its almost free, I hate driving, and last but not least, I have a crummy car. Actually, I have a crummy car because I drive to work and play, not the other way around.
I'm always looking to try new kinds of food, even if it's Mexican or Italian (which I barely tolerate). I've tried, and enjoy, a wide variety of food-types, but thai and sushi are my favorites. I've passed up Portuguese a few times. This is one of my regrets in life.
As for music.... Hmmm, what should I say? It's such a polarizing subject for so many people. Some folks go on and on abut music. Many people define themselves on the kinds of music they enjoy. Maybe its the dopamine. As for me, I like music. I listen to it when I clean, when I have mindless tasks to accomplish, and when I'm working on some art or craft. But, I do not feel the irresistible drive to consume it, and very little urge discuss it extensively. Multi-day concerts are not for me. I get burned out. SXSW and ACL are too much for me, and I try to leave the city. Throw some visual art or theatre in there, and I'd stay around. But I do go to shows now and again, and they do bring me joy.
