I listen to a lot of different genres, but I would say I mostly
listen to pop, dance, electronic, Spanish, and some indie, but it
depends on my mood - I tend to listen to one artist/CD/genre a lot
then switch to another. I'm a huge Girls Aloud fan, though.
In general I enjoy horror, thriller/suspense, mystery, and
documentaries. I like comedies but I avoid anything with Will
Ferrell. I don't watch a ton of TV but I enjoy shows like Arrested
Development, 30 Rock, Game of Thrones, American Horror Story, Veep,
Futurama, Storage/Shipping Wars, House Hunters, Property Virgins,
How the Universe Works, Through the Wormhole, How It's Made, The
X-Files, Dragons Den/Shark Tank, and sports.
Food-wise, I love dishes with spice and flavour. My favourites are
Italian, Indian, Thai, and Middle Eastern. I'm always open to
trying new cuisines. Chicken stir fry or baked beans are my go-to
staples. I also love shawarmas, burritos, and pitas for something
quick. Probably one of the few people on this planet that doesn't
really like pizza.
Haven't had much time to read books lately, but I enjoyed Shadow of
the Wind, And Then There Were None, Harry Potter series (really,
who hasn't?), The Big Short, true crime stories (e.g. Max Haines
collections), and some Mary Roach books (Spook, Bonk).
