I don't have many hobbies, but I like the ones I have. I am an avid reader of both fiction and nonfiction. I also read a lot of magazines (The New Yorker, The Nation, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, The Atlantic, MacWorld).

I read newspapers as well and a few of my favorites are The New York Times, The St. Petersburg Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal. I think the NY Times has some of the best columnists writing today. I especially enjoy Thomas Friedman, Maureen Dowd, Bob Herbert, and Paul Krugman.

I like computers and gadgetry and like to think that I know more than a little about both. I am thinking about taking up a musical instrument and would like to become fluent in a foreign language.
