1) I am perpetually bored. 2) I like to learn new stuff. 3) I like to create things that make people say "Ooo, that's cool!". These things combine (not to form Captain Planet) but to send me out constantly seeking new stuff to make. A new recipe for wasabi-mashed potato filled bacon cups? -Sure. A series of wooden cake stands that look like turtles? -Sounds good. Over forty different liqueur flavors? -Sign me up.
