I tend to like to read, I haven't been doing much lately though...
My favorite book is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, like the
whole thing, not just that individual book. If I had to pick a
favorite book from that then I would have to say the last one:
Mostly Harmless. It's just dark. And awesome.
Still on the reading thing: authors that I do follow whose books I
purchase and tear through as soon as they come out are Carl Hiaasen
and Christopher Moore.
Movies can be enjoyable. I'm not really too into massive amounts of
violence, action, torture, and the like. I cannot and will not
watch A Clockwork Orange so don't ask me to.
Some of my favorites are: Secretary, Garden State, Across the
Universe, Once, American Beauty, Stranger Than Fiction, Amelie, But
I'm a Cheerleader, Big Fish, Mirrormask, The Darjeeling Limited,
Chasing Amy, Moulin Rouge, Oliver and Company, Donnie Darko, and
As far as TV goes, I don't watch a lot. I have Hulu Plus and
Netflix so I sometimes watch Bones, or The Daily Show, or the
Colbert Report... or Glee (shh). Also, someone recently got me
hooked on Doctor Who.
Other stuff though, I like all Star Trek though Enterprise is my
favorite. ER was good for over half of its run. Newsradio was good,
30Rock, Buffy, House, Sports Night... The West Wing was excellent.
I recently watched the full series on Netflix.
I tend to think of music as a good thing. My favorite station is
98.1. I listen to lots of stuff though I'll say my favorite band is
Guster. I love me some Duhks, and I've seen Counting Crows a bunch
of times, and Ben Folds is good, Ben Lee too... Ben Kweller though,
I could take him or leave him. I've been digging on some Lisa
Hannigan lately so naturally I also enjoy some Damien Rice.
Barenaked Ladies, The Dresden Dolls, Ingrid Michaelson... the list
goes on and on.
I'm not really into rap though, and what I really can't stand is
screaming death metal. It upsets me. And really ramped up
electronic music where there are like a million tracks going and it
makes you feel like you're about to have an aurally induced
seizure. Yeah. Not that.
And finally we get to food. I like food. I really like food. I have
this tendency to gorge myself. I enjoy ordering the everything.
Well, the sort of everything because I am vegan. I mean, I'm not an
evil vegan that freaks out whenever someone eats meat around her. I
mean, come on. Once upon a time I managed a Subway. I can deal. I
also am not an uber strict vegan. I mean, I shop vegan, I cook
vegan, but sometimes I have to cheat when some nonvegan delicious
delicious chocolate somehow ends up on my desk at work.
My favorite restaurant in Asheville is Plant. It still can't hold a
candle to my favorite restaurant on the planet which is Sublime.
But that's in Fort Lauderdale, FL...
I'm really big on Asian food. Thai food, Japanese food, Chinese
food... it's all good.
I also like Mexican. And then there's Italian... and yeah, have I
mentioned that I like food?
