I am a television junkie. Doctor Who, Sherlock, Mythbusters, Psych,
and all things Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly) are my all-time
favorites, but I could seriously go on forever, so if you love TV,
too, just ask and let's talk! Currently engrossed in Arrow, Flash,
Agents of SHIELD, Game of Thrones (who isn't?), Person of Interest,
and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, among a few others.
Favorite books: Matilda (ages 9-12), Ender's Game (ages 12-15),
Dune (ages 15-18), and the A Song of Ice and Fire series (ages
18+). Also, if a movie adaptation of a book makes it onto my list
of favorite movies, it's likely also a favorite book because I try
to read the books before the movies. That includes Jurassic Park,
Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Godfather, etc. A very recent
favorite is The Martian, by Andy Weir. All I can say is, WOW.
Recent favorite movies: Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6, Lord
of the Rings, Harry Potter, Iron Man, Avengers, Star Trek (2009),
among others. Disney movies deserve their own category.
My favorite songs are the ones that fit whatever situation I'm
currently in (e.g. beach songs while at the beach, road trip songs
while on the road, etc.). Basically I like having a soundtrack to
my life. That said, I am slightly obsessed with musicals,
especially Les Miserables and Disney.
I can eat almost anything, but Japanese food (sushi + ramen) and
Mediterranean food (shawerma) are my current favorites.
