I like some Science Fiction Movies, but most don't make the
transition from novel to silver screen very well.
Drama if it is well written and for the most part epic.
Action Movies if there is a good plot, and not just an excuse to
shoot people and blow up stuff.
Horror Movies to me are mostly laughable, particularly slasher
I do enjoy most zombie movies but they are laughable too, sometimes
on purpose !
The only ones that really scare me are the ones that have some
factual basis, such as demonic possession.

cartoons and classic Warner Brothers stuff: Bugs Bunny, the
Roadrunner, Foghorn Leghorn, Sylvester and Tweety.
I also like Ren and Stimpy - Bevis and Butthead - The
Family Guy - American Dad.

I enjoy all kinds of food and I am very adventurous when it comes
to food. I'll bite it if it does not bite me back !
I like ethnic cuisine, from soul food to sushi. Chinese, Thai,
French, Cajun, Creole, East Indian, Italian, Mexican, you name it
and I like it ! I also LOVE to cook. I cook everything from soul
food to eclectic ethnic cuisine. Cooking is yet another way to show
my artistic flair, and I have been told I am very good at it. Turn
me loose in your kitchen, and I'll bet you dollars to donuts, I'll
have your mouth watering like Pavlov's dog !
