If you're like me, you're just going to skim this section. But just
in case, let's try a few:
Books: Master and Margarita, any of the four Kundera
novels that I've read, Margaret Atwood, The Count of Monte Cristo,
and virtually anything by Bill Bryson, Bill James, and William
Goldman (especially the nonfiction).
Hmm. My top three nonfiction authors are all named William. I
wonder if that means anything.
I finally got to The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and
was knocked senseless by it. I mean hot DAMN that dude can write.
(Good prose makes me quiver).
Everyone I know has either read nothing of Murakami's or everything
he's ever written. I just read my second, so I guess I'm committed
Movies: Sneakers is my favorite movie. There has
virtually never been a time when, if someone said, "hey, you wanna
watch Sneakers?" I'd say "nah, not really in the mood." There are
other movies I recognize as being weightier, but really, how often
are you in the mood to sit down and watch all of, say, Seven
Samurai? Actually that does sound pretty good about now...
Shows: Everyone's list looks pretty much the same here,
so to keep it short, yes, I like those shows too. West Wing is tops

Music: Mostly stuff that used to be cool. And I'm
horrible at remembering bands, even ones I like. My bizarrely
powerful memory is all used up on lit, movies, comedy, and
And I like showtunes. Yeah, I said it.
Food: I remember hearing once that fresh fruit was the
most perfect food because it's good on all the senses. They taste
good; most fruits are pretty to look at; they smell good; umm, some
of them feel good I guess, but let's not get kinky just yet. And
hearing. Ok, forget hearing. Still. Anyway, to answer the question,
I like a lot of foods, but I love pasta. And my favorite vegetable
is corn. Now you know everything.
