Books and Authors:
Neil Gaiman (especially Good Omens which he did with Terry
Pratchett), Mythology of all kinds (although I favor Greek), Robert
Frost, Edgar Allan Poe, Shakespeare, Shel Silverstein.
I've read a lot of really good books. Those are just some of my
favorite authors. I also believe I have used lines from every
author listed above to break up with someone.
The two "romance" movies you will catch me watching more than once
are Love Actually and The Holiday, I'm not super in to chick flicks
(I'm a chick, but I don't care for the whole pandering to my desire
to have a baby or a man thing, I'd rather watch a Batman movie with
you!). Black and white films (I like watching TCM with my grandpa
when I'm at his house, and my favorite movie is probably It
Happened One Night). I also love horror movies, slasher, haunted
house, vampires (that don't sparkle), etc. As long as they aren't
those "found footage" ones, it was groundbreaking once upon a time
(Blair Witch) but it isn't any more. I can go in for some musicals
(Rocky Horror!) and I also dig an action movie. I have seen all of
the Fast & Furious, Harry Potter, Batman, Star Wars, and X-Men
(save for the Wolverine ones, I'm not a huge Wolverine fan) in
theaters. Historical docudramas... Documentaries in general.
I've realized I watch a lot of detective, science fiction, and
comedy shows. I have an unhealthy obsession with American Horror
Story. I also enjoy a nice British TV show. Sometimes I watch the
entire series of Daria in one day just because I can.
Every year I make a mix CD for friends and family of the new music
I have found and loved throughout the year and it is always pretty
eclectic, from Irish step music to country to rap. I will listen to
The Beatles all day if you let me. I like music from my parents'
and grandparents' time (my grandparents had me listening to old
school country when I was a child, and I still don't like this pop
country crap that a lot of artists put out these days, and I can
dig on 60s and 70s music hard core). I remember when the M in MTV
stood for music.
Um... I like sushi a lot. And spicy. I love spicy.
European beers, Chilean wines, Pepsi over Coca-Cola, milk over
both, water most of the time, vodka and rum when liquor is
necessary, Kool-Aid just for fun.
