Books: I like pop-fiction as much as the average person. Stuff like
Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. But I also like the less
mainstream fiction like Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I'm more
than happy to check out non-fiction books if the subject matter
truly interests me. I recently read Bossy Pants by Tina Fey. See
also: Jim Butcher, Piers Anthony, Sarah Vowell, David
Movies: I absorb movies like a dry sponge. Comedy, Drama, Action,
virtually anything. I usually think horror movies are stupid, but I
will watch them with others who enjoy them. Liar, Liar (one of my
favorite movies), Batman Begins Trilogy, Big Lebowski, Superbad,
Super Troopers, Shawshank Redemption, Departed, Harry Potter
series, most Disney movies from my childhood.
TV: My taste in TV is pretty analogous to my taste in movies. I
don't own a TV, but I have the internet; so I watch the shows that
I like when I have the time to watch them. My favorite shows are
Dexter, Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, Parks and Recreation,
Office, 30 Rock, Archer, Modern Family, Raising Hope,
Californication, House, Shameless, Misfits, Sherlock, How I Met
Your Mother, New Girl, Fringe, Walking Dead, Arrested Development,
The League, Bob's Burgers, and there are probably more, but they
escape me at the moment. I may have mentioned that I watch too many
Music: I will listen to virtually anything except country. If you
like it, I will probably listen along and not be unhappy. I don't
have the passion for music that some people do.
Food: Mexican and Italian food rate pretty highly for me. But a big
holdout is onions. I don't like the flavor of onions.
I like to cook, though I'm not very good at it yet. I want to learn
as much as possible.
