Dave tagged me with this:

List five things you enjoy, even when no one around you wants to go out and play. What lowers your stress/blood pressure/anxiety level?

I ride my bicycle - LA's not a bad bike town if you stay off the main streets, and it's amazing what you see when you're not in a car. One of my favorite bike rides is up Sunset Plaza drive to Mullholland (half an hour on a hill climb), and then back down. It's a hard ride, but I forget whatever's bothering me when I do it. That and I'm totally exhausted when I'm done.

I go to the gym and lift weights - boring, I know, but it does help me relieve stress.

I watch movies - at home, in the theater, wherever. I just bought the extended cut of "Das Boot".

I go climb a rock (but this does require a buddy).

I go to the "secret beach" in Palos Verdes and snorkel naked.

I used to go to Pinot Hollywood and sit in front of the fire with a martini. Guess that's out now, huh?

This stuff is way too healthy. You'd never make it in post-production.

That sounds great!

(he says while checking out MapQuest for beaches in the Palos Verdes area).

I like riding up Sunset Plaza, too. That was one of my favorite rides when I lived in Hollywood. Now I ride over there sometimes from Pasadena just for old times' sake.
