People keep telling me to read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, but I read 1Q84 and it turned me off Murakami. Is it worth reading?
I have a Kindle, and while it is pretty useful sometimes, I still prefer real books.
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Lemuria, Green Day, The Both, Elvis Costello, Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil, Pinhead Gunpowder, Sleater-Kinney
Non-judgmental vegetarian. I enjoy cooking and would like to think I'm halfway decent at it. Favorites include avocados, lentils, most breakfast foods, pinto beans, cheesecake, smooth peanut butter, mango, burritos, and raspberries. I've never really liked chocolate cake. The best breakfast place in the city is Tre Kronor in Albany Park. Trying to bake doesn't usually turn out that well for me, but I have a recipe for peanut butter cookies that always gets rave reviews.
Baseball (Go Cubs!), The Daily Show (don't go Jon!), Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Orphan Black, The Following, Parks and Recreation, Falling Skies, Breaking Bad, Arrested Development, Dr. Who, The Office. I still haven't seen season 2 of House of Cards.
Another book (for when I finish the first one)
Public Transit (I hate driving)
A good beer
