Music: The majority of my iPod is Progressive rock, heavy metal and
classical music, with a smattering of jazz, showtunes, classic
rock, pop, and just about everything else.
We don't need to like the same kind of music, but I want to meet
someone who is open to trying new genres. I'll give your favorite
song a listen if you'll give mine a chance.
Books: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Catch-22, The Oath, Surely
You're Joking Mr. Feynman, Hamlet, Debt of Honor
Movies: The Dark Knight, Top Secret!, Airplane, The Avengers,
Minority Report, many many more...
Shows: Family Guy, Doctor Who, The McLaughlin Group (I was a
poli-sci major, what can I say?) Top Gear, How I Met Your Mother,
I'm behind on all of these, though, as I never seem to have time
for shows until they get to Netflix.
Food: Steak, sushi, my own homemade (gluten-free) lasagne, mexican
food, Thai food, in the end, I just really like food.
