I'll read pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I enjoy
satirical political commentaries, fantasy novels, and books that
give insight on how to better relate to myself and others. Candide
by Voltaire, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, The Princess Bride
by William Goldman, The Lord of the Rings Epic by J.R.R. Tolkein,
and World Religions in War and Peace by Henry O.Thompson are a few
favorites. Leo Tolstoy, Oscar Wilde, Brene Brown and Don Miguel
Ruiz rock my socks.
I have the attention span of a doorknob when it comes to watching
movies. If it doesn't catch my attention in the first few minutes,
I will wander away and do something else. But I do think that The
Usual Suspects is, hands down, one of the best movies ever. The
Princess Bride is a close second and one of the few movies that
does its original book justice. Pan's Labyrinth was everything a
fairy tale should be: lush, dark, tragic and beautiful. Lock, Stock
& Two Smoking Barrels makes me laugh until my cheeks hurt. I
also love Face/Off, Heat, Fight Club, Training Day, Leon, most
English and American gangster films, and classic musicals.
If you ask me, I'll probably claim that I don't watch TV, but
Netflix has nurtured in me a slightly unhealthy obsession with the
shows Lost Girl, The Arrow, Archer, Revenge, and Orange is the New
Black. The Blacklist makes me look forward to Mondays! James Spader
as Red Reddington is damned sexy and deliciously nonchalant,
My taste in music is pretty varied. Muse, Puscifer, Tool, A Perfect
Circle, Carina Round, Tupac, Nas, John Mayer, Christina Aguilera,
Prince, Justin Timberlake, Jason Mraz, Michael Jackson, Kanye West,
Aerosmith, Queen, Evanescence, and Earth Wind & Fire tend to
play on repeat, and generally listening to all types of hip hop,
jazz, opera and classical music makes me insanely happy.
Growing up in a multicultural family and moving around the world
quite a bit, I'm very adventurous with food. I was recently
diagnosed Celiac so now I've got to eat gluten-free, but I'm
finding that it's not as limiting as I was afraid it might be. I
love Mexican, Italian, Hawaiian, Japanese, Persian, French, Indian,
Greek, Thai, Ethiopian, and Korean cuisine, and anything spicy.
Sushi is one of the keys to my heart.
