Despite my screen name, I have grown up and I do not own any green tights. I just look and act younger than my chronological age and do not plan on growing old anytime soon.
I live ten miles over the GW Bridge and work in Manhattan.
I often go to see movies and prefer edge of the seat action movies, funny comedies (very subjective-but I think the early Woody Allen and Steve Martin movies were their funniest). When I go to see a movie I am not looking for a message and while I make exceptions, I prefer not to have to read subtitles.
In terms of the theater, I almost always avoid musicals, preferring a comedy or drama, or something a bit out of the ordinary.
I am a bit of a Phillistine when it comes to the ballet and opera. I have been to both. I would sooner go to see Joyce than classical ballet. My first opera was Aida at the Baths of Caracalla in Rome. I guess I was spoiled. Unless there are chariots, elephants and camels on stage I would not likely truly be very enthusiastic about the prospect, though with the right companion I could, from time to time, be persuaded to fake it.
I have an eclectic taste in music. I have no appreciation for rap/hip-hop. I have come to realize that not every country and western song is a wordy tribute to someone's granny or girlfriend sitting on a porch, watching over the moonshine or polishing a pick up but I cannot claim to be a big fan. Usually, I start my day awakening to classical music. I also enjoy listening to new age. Goldies, some folk/pop.
I don't eat sea food (never warmed up to the idea), and prefer meats and fowl off the bone. Other than that I am not too preferential though I enjoy Italian, Chinese, Indian, a nicely grilled steak or burger. While I enjoy a good meal, I am not a "foodie" and do not live to eat.
