Favorite TV shows: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Star Trek (TOS, TNG, DS9),
Mythbusters, Psych, and Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly) are my
all-time favorites, but I'm also currently engrossed in comic book
TV shows (Arrow, Flash, Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, Daredevil),
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+). A very recent favorite is The Martian, by Andy Weir, one of
the funniest books I've ever read, even including the Hitchhiker's
Guide to the Galaxy. I also really enjoy learning about history,
especially specific subjects in history rather than time periods,
e.g. banking throughout history, espionage throughout history,
Recent favorite movies: Inside-Out, 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. I specify RECENT movies because holy *bleep* this list
would be long if I didn't.
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.
