I’m Interested

Well hello everyone :) I have been giving more thought to the sorts of things I should talk about here. Looking back at the many conversations of my life I’ve noticed this trend: I love explaining things. I love telling people about things that really interest me. I suppose I enjoy introducing my friends to the things that excite me.

Anyone who know me will attest that I have diverse and multitudinous interests. Indeed many hapless friends of mine have been caught by my long-winded explanations of esoteric whatnot. Though I’m sure that I’ve been patronized many of these times, often enough the product is mutual wonder and happiness. Mission accomplished.

I’ve never really sat down and thought about all my interests – more like just take them as they come. But I would like to blog about them. So while at work today, I made a little note on my iPhone labeled “My Interests” and just wrote down the things that came to mind. This is in no way an exhaustive list, and perhaps in my next post I’ll put them in a more organized order. I really do think I could write at least one blog post about each and every one of these topics.

If one of these interests you, please let me know!

  1. …and if we could understand animals, and they could understand us, I bet you would get along with these folks just fine…

    “…the time has come,” the walrus said, “to talk of many things…”

  2. All the above comment made me think of was Rex Harrison’s amazing shouted key change in the courtroom scene of Dr. Dolittle.

    (On topic, as you listed musicals and omniglot)

  3. This list makes me wish I would’ve taken the opportunity to drink whiskey and discuss particle physics with you when I had the chance.
