My taste in food is very simple and uncomplicated: steaks, pizzas, hamburgers, pasta, chicken — in general I do not touch exotic, fancy foods which I can neither spell nor pronounce. (Though I have recently acquired a taste for a few Chinese dishes, but please don't tell anyone.)
I drink some beers (though not whiskeys and other strong, foul-tasting stuff) and wine with dinner or for relaxation. But what I really love are sweet liqueurs, like Drambuie and Cointreau and fruity cocktails, like Pina Colada and San Franscisco. I am very sensible about alchohol, and never drink more than what I can easily handle.
But in my world view, the Drink of Drinks is Diet Coke! I consume a gallon of it every day — and I never tire of it. Will my Diet Coke consumption reduce my life span by, say three weeks or three months or whatnot? If such statistical B.S. should be correct, that's nevertheless a trade-off I gladly embrace. "Coke is It!"
I have never smoked myself and I don't want the smell in my house. But it's your lungs, so — as long as you don't subject others to your smelly smoke — you should be free to do whatever you want to them. The present prosecution of smokers and tobacco companies is a disgrace — and a violation of individual rights.
I have no interest in spectator sports at all. None. So, unlike almost all men, I will never sit in front of a TV all weekend watching football or other sports events. Every woman in the Unverse should love me for that sweet trait alone. :-)
In June 2006 I bought myself a nice, new 21-gear bicycle, and have started to bike around in Oslo in the evenings for exercise and sight-seeing.
While I love computers, I hate all computer games. I do not own a single one, either legit or bootleg.I find them to be an amazing waste of time and money. I can enjoy the graphics for a few minutes, but after that I tune out. I also hate all other kinds of games, like cards, pool, Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, etc. I used to play some chess in my early teens, but that now bores me also.
Aren't games a solution to this problem: "I'm so bored with my life I just don't know what to do!"? But I am never bored (except when encountering some people), so that problem just doesn't arise for me — hence, I have no need for games.
