Books: I like dorky fantasy/sci fi books and classic literature.
Memoirs and non-fiction. And field guides. Jeeves and Wooster. OKC
thinks I'm more literary than most women my age. I think I've just
answered more questions about books than most women my age.
Movies: I'm not super into movies. They always seem to be aimed at
the broadest possible audience and never really say or do anything
interesting. However, I'm open to recommendations if you think you
can change my mind. I suppose if I had to pick a favorite though,
I'd say The Princess Bride, or pretty much anything with
Christopher Guest. Also, Pixar
Shows: Seinfeld, Arrested Development (although not a huge fan of
the new season), Flight of the Conchords, Parks and Rec, Summer
Heights High, Trailer Park Boys, Peep Show, The Office (but only
before Michael left), Downton Abbey, Battlestar Galactica, Party
Anime: Haibane Renmei, Mononoke (not to be confused with Princess
Mononoke, which I also like, along with anything else Miyazaki),
Maison Ikkoku, Monster, Serial Experiments Lain, Paprika, currently
making my way through Texhnolyze
Music: The Decemberists, Belle and Sebastian, Radiohead, Led

Podcasts: This American Life, 99% Invisible, Radiolab, most
Food: I'm a pretty adventurous eater considering I'm a vegan.

sort of thing I will probably love you forever. I also really wish
I was a wine and beer nerd, but I haven't really gotten there yet.
Hard alcohol of choice: gin, although I've been getting into
whiskey more recently
