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, 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 saw Book of Mormon again for the 3rd time
last summer at the Kennedy Center, "Dear Evan Hansen" astounded me
so much that I cannot stop gushing about it (it's heading to off
Broadway this spring!) and oh my goodness do I want to see
"Hamilton" on Broadway. (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 well.
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! 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 Butter Eggs.
