Like I said above, I usually find there's something to like in most
things, but I've tried to pick some reasonable examples.
Food: I really love to cook. And I love experimenting with
flavours. My favourite foods often seem to be based around
Mediterranean cuisines (e.g. Italian, Greek, Turkish and North
African), but I'm also a big fan of Japanese. If I haven't tried it
yet, I'd like to, please.
Music: Anything that has a good melody. I'm particularly into folky
music at the moment, and a particular favourite is Johnny Flynn.
But I also like a bit of upbeat pop (especially when driving - I
get quite excited!). I also like Agnes Obel, and I have an 80s
playlist I'm very fond of.
Movies: I especially like things that are either fun or
thought-provoking or both. Some classics you can't beat also
include Lord of the Rings, Gladiator and Disney. I'm not too into
(especially slashy) horror films as they tend to leave me a
Books: e.g. The Other Hand, Brave New World, Wuthering Heights,
Pompeii, Imperium - don't really know why I've picked those but why
TV: I like comedy and drama the best. Off the top of my head, a
selection are Peep show, the Detectorists, HIGNFY, Arrested
Development, Mitchell and Webb, Homeland, Sherlock, The Musketeers
and Grantchester. Also Pointless, Escape to the Country and
occasionally Don't tell the Bride.
