Except for the techno, you've said almost everything I love. Mine is listening to music in the shower, I see so much negativity from even the slightest mention of it. I mean come on, who doesn't want something to sing along with, to at least drown out your own crap voice.Listening to repetitive techno (oontz oontz oontz oontz)
Spicy food (I love makimg hot curry,or stir fry's or just adding a bit of space to steak or sausage etc.
Cooking (it's strange that so many people would rather just microwave a ready meal.)
