Food: I enjoy trying new foods, and it's unusual for me to find
food that I really dislike (though, once in a while it happens).
I'm always keen on sushi and Ethiopian food, and I get a lot of use
out of the Laughing Planet on the ground floor of my apartment
building. (I generally don't get any closer to "fast food" than
TV (always via Netflix or iTunes): Sherlock, Breaking Bad (really
amazed with how dark and tense season 5 has been), Nip/Tuck,
Battlestar Galactica, Avatar: The Last Airbender (not keeping up
with Legend of Korra yet), Star Trek: TNG, Game of Thrones
And some card & board games I enjoy: Munchkin, Dixit, Fluxx,
Citadels, The Stars Are Right, Forbidden Island; and the BSG board
game is just plain brilliant.
