I love to cook - which is why I don't do it for a living lol.It's fun and I want to keep it that way. If I'm cooking just for me, a fast quiche, cinnamon orange chicken, or a dutch baby. If its for someone else... I want to show off a bit, so I'd have to get to know your tastes first. Warning, my chocolate custard is dangerous.
I've been asked about the picture with the dog in it. Simply put, he was my best friends dog. But he thought I belonged to him. I would "dog nap" him and head to the woods.
I travel when I can, which is sometimes spur of the moment. I recently jumped a plane to Puerto Rico, just to get out of town for a week. I'm a transplant to the PNW. Even though I've been here for several years, there is still a lot I haven't explored. So if you know any good hiking trails, let's go.
I own a house in Tacoma, which I'm renovating as time and weather permits. I spent a large part of the summer last year scraping paint of the cedar siding, sanding, sanding, and more sanding.... before painting.I managed to get three sides done before the weather got to wet. So if you're bored and looking for something to do... hint, hint. Eventually, I plan on selling or turning this into a rental. I enjoy having the project, but the goal is to have passive income.
Books: I think I have just under a 1000 books in my library. Most are fiction. But I have a lot of natural history, science, and general reference. If you pop into The Rock in Tacoma, its possible you'll find me at the bar reading.
Music: Pretty much everything. Imagine Dragons to Placebo, Chopin to Rascal Flats, Benny Goodman to AC/DC - not an opera fan though.
Movies: The Goonies, The Imitation Game, anything with Bogart.
