Eclectic. But to throw out a few examples:
Books - Words Under the Words (Naomi Shihab Nye), The Book of
Lights (Chaim Potok), Jitterbug Perfume (Tom Robbins), Hit Man
(Lawrence Block), The Princess Bride (William Goldman). Mostly
prefer character-driven but not anything that takes too much
concentration to read. A good story, or stunning poetry.
Movies - Unusual Suspects, Sixth Sense -- I'm a fan of the twisted
ending. Animal House, Zoolander, This is Spinal Tap -- also a fan
of comedy. Singin' in the Rain, Oklahoma, anything with Doris Day
-- I don't flinch at musicals. Garden State. Love, Actually. Crash.
-- the occasional popular one-off. Iron Man. The last really good
movie I saw in a theater was The Guard at the Egyptian.
Music - In general: alternative, rock, classic rock, vocal blues
(Diana Krall, Ella Fitzgerald), some country, some new age/ambient,
folk (Dar Williams, Simon and Garfunkel). Also funny (Jonathan
Coulton, Paul and Storm). So: eclectic. I've never met a genre of
music I didn't like part of. Like chamber music. Not familiar with
opera and not drawn to it, but might like it if I knew it.
Lately my pandora station has been tuned to comedy.
Food - Midwestern funeral food -- tator tot casserole, that one
jello salad with the mandarin oranges and the shredded carrots in
it. I don't eat a lot of this crap, but I love it.
Healthy "slow carbs" -- this is the bulk of what we eat in our
house. Lots of whole grains, locally grown, organic vegetables,
beans, rice. I do eat meat, but prefer chicken, pork and grass-fed
beef. Despise goat, lamb, duck, bison and ostrich. Don't eat out
much, but it's always a treat when I do!
