For work, I'm a poker player. It might not last forever, but it but it's still challenging and pays the bills, and the freedom fits quite nicely with my lifestyle - to stay up late and sleep until noon, to take off on last minute trips to Europe or across the Pacific.
Scuba diving, travel, whitewater rafting, running, poker, games, wine, wine tourism, trivia, Belgian/craft beer, alpine skiing, Crossfit, Sporcle, NHL hockey.
Reading, mostly nonfiction, programming politics, economics.
Fun. I'm interested in fun.
Places: Argentina, Belgium, Ireland, Whistler, Sydney, London.
Reading: The Economist, slate.com, Richard Dawkins, anything by Bill Bryson
TV: The Wire, Top Chef, Mad Men, The Daily Show, Family Guy
Top Chef and Blackhawks hockey I can't miss, the rest I could live without.
- the next big trip and where to go. Current fantasies include the Gaalapagos islands (update: DONE!), Egypt and the Red Sea, and maybe an Antarctic cruise.
- how to structure a life with almost no regular obligations to have some balance between social/personal/professional.
Sometimes I'm working. Sometimes cooking dinner at home and maybe watching a movie with a friend. Sometimes out on the town, but I'm about as likely to be in a bar any weeknight as on the weekend.
