Books: Rick Riordan anything and everything, JK Rowling when
seeking out a guilty pleasure, Veronica Roth when feeling
emotional, Scott Lynch when feeling saucy, Dan Brown for my glimpse
at history. Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child for suspenseful
horror and crime. Terry Pratchett when I'm opining for Anglophilia.
Vanessa Gray Bartel, Laurell Hamilton, Brent Weeks are a few other
I really try to enjoy Jim Butcher and George R.R. Martin, but
they're misogynists who can die in a hole.
Movies: I am a die-hard-movie fanatic (not the Willis series, the
genre), and rarely will say no to a movie-viewing, especially with
others. Whether in a movie theatre, a home system, on a computer,
or long distance over Skype, I enjoy sharing movies with others.
Even better if the individual is nearby to share warmth with. And
even best when cuddling may ensue whilst watching. The best movies
I've watched with company I don't know how ended.
Music: Withstanding Scream-o and highly derogatory-towards-women
music (oft some rap or punk), I have yet to find music that I don't
enjoy. My ipod and iphone have a collection spanning from classical
to metal, from euro club music to Polynesian tribal chants.
Chillstep and marina and the Diamonds are my two most recent
eargasmic pleasures. I DARE you to find me a music
genre I wouldn't pseudopod into my collection. Withstanding blatant
misogyny or overt hate.
Shows: If there is romance, i'm interested. If you combine that
romance with comedy and cuteness, I'm on it. If you then add on
good writing and intriguing storylines, I will rub my face in it
and love it. I am particularly fond of witty and
quirkly-verging-on-cheesy shows. Here's just a few I adore and
could watch over and over. "Elementary, Castle, Dr Who (both pre
and post 2005), Firefly, Davinci's Demons." I also guiltily
pleasure myself by checking out competitive cooking shows of the
hilariously dramatic bent.
I also enjoy watching old campy cheesy sci shows with others. Star
Trek TNG, Seaquest, SCG-1 to name a few.
Food: I'm willing to try anything, including the most gross-out
foods you could subject me to. I prefer spicy foods, although my
tolerance for spicy is nothing to boast on. As a Nutritionist I
often have to curb my talk about food on dates, as sometimes
learning more about something so intimate can ruin the essence of
it. I make dinner dates a nightmare, and I'm aware of this. I can't
