Roger informed me last month that he and Lopez had decided I needed some kind of hobby so that I've got something to talk about besides religion. I insisted that the problem is that they always lead the conversations. So here are some things I enjoy that aren't directly related to religion.
I love to cook. If we're friends and you live around here, I've probably cooked for you.
I do watch a little television. I never miss Battlestar Galactica or House, M.D. Don't ask about the South Park pajamas.
I am a recovering Sci-Fi nerd, while we're on the subject. I'm mostly okay now (Babylon 5 was a long time ago), but I think BSG has taught me to love again. Ha!
I don't watch sports at all (I don't really care about it) but I did play soccer in high school.
I'm really bad at Halo.
I lack independent taste in music. I listen to the things my friends recommend to me, and mostly I like it. I can't stand Perfect Circle, and I don't listen to Tool when home alone. It makes me feel like I'm in a horror film.
Exercise interests me. I just joined a gym. Again. I lost 40 pounds in the first half of 2004, most of which I'd put on after the accident.
We should go throw a Frisbee.
I really like Flannery O'Connor, William Faulkner, and T.S. Eliot.
History is endlessly fascinating. I have a B.A. in history, and could tell and listen to interesting stories for days.
I work part-time at a bookstore, and I really get a kick out of it. Marketing and customer service and thinking about how to run a business well are (surprisingly) of considerable interest for me.
I live with med student/chemist and a statis-- static-- er, math guy. Somehow we do find things to talk about besides religion.
Okay, that's all.
