When I get away from the lab I try to keep moving. Typically I wind up trying to learn something new. I've managed to become something like a cyclist, have a few beer recipes sorted out, and finally figured out a backhand serve in squash. Someday I'll believe it when I tell myself I enjoy running.
Chirping up when somebody asks for help? Typically before they've finished asking for it. Maybe without them even asking? Maybe this should go in the "things I'm trying to improve" section.
A lot of movies are really great. Right now I'd really like to watch either a League of Their Own, Miracle, or Dr. Strangelove. Been a while since I've watched any of those. I'm not above the complete mindlessness of something along the lines of Anchorman. Die Hard is clearly the best christmas movie.
Music tends to be more of a background noise thing than a sought after activity. That said, the work play list invariably involves a lot of Talking Heads and Squeeze. Jamiroquai makes alarmingly frequent appearances, though that's mostly to pester other people.
Food is a lot like movies, how do you decide on just some favorites? I'm always trying to talk myself into liking oysters. I haven't had banh mi in forever. I have successfully deep fried 7 turkeys.
Whether I'd be annoyed if part of something broke, or if I'd get a kick out of fiddling with it once it did.
The devils will play just well enough to miss the playoffs AND get a terrible draft pick. At least the sharks are exciting to watch.
Its getting to the point that I can't use the weather as an excuse to stay off the road bike.
Depending on the tides, I may be trying to pull something out of the pacific ocean.
I routinely need to look up how to spell convenient.
