My bookshelves are overstuffed, writers I've enjoyed (in no
particular or all inclusive order) Douglas Adams, Gabriel Garcia
Marquez, Christopher Moore, Jhumpa Lahiri, David Sedaris, Ann
Patchett, Susan Jane Gilman, Kristina Halvorson, Jeanette Walls,
Neil Gaimen, Ken Kesey, Mil Milington, Tom Robbins, Kurt
I am a nerd girl at heart, so in no particular order (and I 'm sure
I'm missing a few) Dr Who, Firefly, Boardwalk Empire, Parks &
Rec, Sherlock, Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, I'm sure there are
others, but I actually haven't had a tv for the last 9 months, and
that has warped my sense of the medium in general. I've also
watched a ridiculous number of TEDtalks.
Growing up, I wasn't allowed to listen to music. Which is to say, I
am fairly willing to listen to absolutely anything, and love
learning what other people like. I can say with a fair amount of
certainty that I don't care for heavy metal, but maybe that just
means I haven't met someone with enough passion for it yet.
I'm passionate about food, and I love how it brings people
together. I make up most of my recipes as I go along, and my spice
stash is one of my most prized possessions.
