Favorite Books - I love to read, and I read quite a lot, thanks to
public transport, so I'm always reading something new. Love Neil
Gaiman, Nick Hornby, Jonathan Tropper, Emily Giffin, Cathy Lamb,
Diana Gabaldon, and Bill Bryson (to name a few). My favorite book
is probably "East of Eden" and I loved "Ready Player One" (hooray,
they're making it into a movie!)
Movies - Favorites include: Guardians of the Galaxy (Groooot!), The
Avengers movies, The Way Way Back, 20 Feet from Stardom, The Argo,
Station Agent, Princess Bride, Never Again, Spaceballs, Once, Jiro
Dreams of Sushi, Shawshank Redemption, Coming to America, Iron Man
and anything from John Hughes. I also love Audrey Hepburn movies,
indie films and some documentaries. Indie theatres, like E Street
in DC or the Angelika in NYC are fantastic.
Monty Python is hysterical. I just got tickets to see John Cleese
and Eric Idle in Richmond in October. I also love anything Pixar
does, and really enjoy kid's movies, even though I have to borrow
kids to go to see them.
TV - I am currently in mourning over the loss of the Daily Show
with Jon Stewart.
But, I try to dry my tears with "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", random
shows on HGTV or the Food Network (that guy on Restaurant
Impossible scares me a little), Mythbusters, and Sherlock. I'm a
fan of BBC comedies (Coupling, The IT Crowd) and I love searching
Roku for whatever awesome thing I can binge-watch might be.
I love live theatre! I just saw Book of Mormon again for the 3rd
time (I might have a problem) at the Kennedy Center, everyone needs
to go and see the world premiere musical "Dear Evan Hansen" at
Arena Stage that I cannot stop gushing about, and I am intrigued
knowing that "Silence of the Lambs: The Musical" exists in the
world. (I promise to try very hard not to geek out about my love of
theatre too much). I always try to catch a show when I visit NYC as
Music feeds my soul. Anywhere from Mozart to Mumford & Sons,
from Etta James to Frank Sinatra. From The Cure to Billy Joel to
(early)Tori Amos to Tool. Love Rilo Kiley, Bruno Mars, The Script,
The Rescues and The Bird & The Bee... from NWA to Led Zeppelin.
Pete Yorn, Gavin DeGraw, O.A.R., Bon Iver, Fitz & The Tantrums,
Broken Bells...love it. 80s music, especially brit pop, YES
I'll listen to basically anything except for death metal, prog
rock, hard core rap and throat music.
Food: - I love a good spice. Restaurants don't believe me when I
ask them to make it spicy, but when they do? Bliss! The tears are
happy ones. I love Thai, Indian, some sushi, Mexican, a good deep
dish, and delicious tapas. I am deeply suspicious of people who
don't love tacos. Oh, and cheese. All of the cheese. Except the
really hard cheese. But even then, probably. And Reese's Peanut
