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"
Movies - Favorites include: Guardians of the Galaxy (Groooot!), The
Avengers movies, The Way Way Back, 20 Feet from Stardom, The Perks
of Being a Wallflower, Argo, Station Agent, Princess Bride, Never
Again, 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. E Street is a
particular haunt of mine.
Monty Python is hysterical. I adore Pixar (Up and Wall-E
especially) and the Muppets.
TV - Thank goodness for Roku and my DVR! Catching up on old TV
series, love the Daily Show (I don't want to think about Jon's
retirement), HGTV and Restaurant: Impossible.
I love live theatre! I am going to see Book of Mormon again, just
saw a world premiere musical "Dear Evan Hansen" that I cannot stop
gushing about, and I am intrigued knowing that "Silence of the
Lambs: The Musical" exists. (I promise to try very hard not to geek
out about my love of theatre too much).
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: Let's say we're having some sort of meal out somewhere I will
sometimes inform the waiter that I want the chef to make my food
crazy spicy - I love a good spice. They very rarely get it right,
but when they do? Bliss! The tears are happy ones. I love Thai,
Indian, some sushi, Mexican, Creole, and delicious tapas. I am
suspicious of people who don't love tacos.
