Books: I tend to read a lot of nonfiction about anything and
everything, but I love Dan Brown books and similar
pseudo-historical thrillers. Love Harry Potter and The Hunger Games
too but those are pretty generic these days.
Movies: Idiocracy, Layer Cake, The Fugitive, Goodfellas, Oh Brother
Where Art Thou, Life is Beautiful, I Love You Man.
Shows: How I Met Your Mother, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Family Guy,
The Simpsons, Seinfeld.
Music: Anything from Eminem to Don McLean. Mostly rap and older
rock but also a bit of country, pop, classical, and miscellaneous
thrown in for good measure.
Food: Buffalo Wings, Banana Bread, Peanut Butter, Krispy Kremes,
Breakfast Sandwiches. I'm not a gourmet but I can enjoy a fancy
meal; Italian is my favorite "nice" cuisine.
