Not boring at all babetoo. I am not a reader. Not novels, anyway. I keep a pretty busy schedule, and am rarely alone. I work about 12 hours a day, and play in a band on weekends. I am also a homekeeper so, by the time I get to bed, I am spent. I try to read, but I usually fall asleep withing 5 minutes. When I do have time, I am in my music room working on percussion exercises or drum parts for the projects I am working on at the time. I think I need glasses, on top of it all. I have read one book this year. I have no favorite authors, although I did really enjoy Kurt Vonnegut's work, so I guess he could be my favourite. Thanks for the question...

I don't know how to answer that one, Alix. I wish I would have started to play the piano at a younger age. Watching my daughter play is so inspiring. She glides along so effortlessly. I'm like a big ape playing a Fisher Price plastic piano. plunk plunk plink.

sounds like you are a busy person. reading never puts me to sleep. in fact, if a really good book, i read into the night and pay for it the next day. i wish i could play an instrument. took piano as a kid. was NOT! good at it. happy turkey day.

Would you get more satisfaction from preparing a perfect meal for ten people or from teaching those ten people how to prepare that meal?

I'd love to have people cook with me. I am probably hard to follow because I am fairly scatterbrained and have probably learned some pretty bad habits or unusual techniques over the years. My daughter isn't really interested but she does hang out in the kitchen while I cook. My wife rarely cooks because I always do. But I do enjoy being busy for hours in the kitchen by myself, with music and refreshments....

So, I guess I'd enjoy both equally well. Thanks for the question.
