My absolutely favorite author is Jane Austen. I also love the Harry
Potter series - you can't go wrong with some good fantasy! Other
favorite authors include John Grisham, Stephen King, Michael
Crichton, and Phillippa Gregory. I love any type of historical
fiction - especially about England.
My taste in movies is all over the place. I have a girly side that
loves Disney and musicals but I enjoy many other genres. Superhero
movies - especially Batman - are a real favorite of mine. I also
enjoy science-fiction films - the most recent Star Trek was
fantastic! Also, I will watch anything with Christian Bale and
particularly like The Prestige.
I'm happy listening to anything but hip-hip or rap! However, I do
have a few genres that I particularly enjoy. Girly pop - like Lady
Gaga and Katy Perry - is a real favorite of mine. I also have a
deep appreciation of older country music from before 1980. A
lifetime of playing the piano/clarinet has given me a deep
appreciation of classical music and anything instrumental. I
probably listen to Broadway cast albums the most but I don't expect
anybody else to share that interest.
Game of Thrones, Castle, and Downton Abbey are some other
plot-heavy shows that I watch regularly. For comedy, I watch Big
Bang Theory, Modern Family, and Glee. My guilty pleasure shows
include 16 and Pregnant, Hell's Kitchen, and Say Yes to the Dress.
Cancelled shows that I still enjoy include Desperate Housewives,
Friends, and Firefly. Who doesn't love Mal Reynolds??
I also enjoy shouting out Jeopardy answers!
Mexican, Italian, BBQ, American, Chinese, Seafood, and DESSERT!
