Books: Catch 22, The Wheel of Time series. I like
to read but, unfortunately, I don't make the time for A lot of
leisure reading at this point in my life. I read quite a bit of
aviation stuff like FAA regulations (boring, right?) and also the
awesome fun stuff on flying, pilot skills, and weather; always
Pilot Operating Handbooks are fun because that means I'm learning
how to fly a new plane!
I'd rather learn about you by talking to you but if you happen to
have written a book about yourself, it may be beneficial to have
the extra reference material. Just kidding! Or am I?
Movies: Amelie is one of my favorites. Braveheart,
The Aviator, Super Troopers, Dumb and Dumber, The Hangover, Lost in
Shows: I get into a variety of TV shows when I
have time or just need some time to myself to unwind. Dexter, New
Girl, Grimm, the Walking Dead, etc.
As for theatre "show", I was able to catch "In the Heights" on
Broadway a year or two ago. I find all those musical-type events
always have some great humor in them and a fun outlook on life. For
some reason, I've always found plays and musicals to be really
amusing and entertaining. Maybe it's the personal touch of having
actors on stage...
I listen to almost all music. I love creating it. But, when it
comes to listening, I can't rule out a single genre and I'll listen
to everything from classical, blues, and jazz, to Latin, pop/rock,
and techno stuff. My least favorites are probably rap and country.
Modern music is mixing all the pop, techno, and rap anyway...I
think mostly good results.
Food: Sushi! Of course I have to throw a good word
in there for Dutch food, which is kind of a strange collection of
foods, which I would be more than happy to share with you. But I
enjoy all kinds of food and love trying new things, especially
foreign foods. Odd side note, if you happen to be vegetarian, I
make some mean vegetarian/vegan fajitas! In fact, I've gotten
better at making quite a few vegetarian and/or vegan dishes.
