I play board and card games such as Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne,
and Dominion (waaaaay more than that, just some favorites). I used
to play D&D and other tabletop RPGs, but I haven't done that
recently. I used to raid in WoW, but now I rarely make time for
video games. The last games I bought were The Last of Us and Elder
Scrolls Online...neither of which I have had time to play. I like
strategy games like Civ and Dawn of Discovery.
The last three books I read were Dresden Files: Storm Front, Rogues
(an anthology), and The Golden Compass (a re-read). I read mostly
fantasy, sci fi, and classic fiction novels. I also love Michael
Crichton novels. I really ought to read more of them. Ask me about
my favorite epic fantasy series sometime :)
I don't own cable, and I would only watch it if someone else turns
it on. I have Netflix, which enables me to watch Doctor Who,
Sherlock, Firefly, Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
, Downton Abbey, and
a whole plethora of Regency-era romance series. I am also a rabid
fan of Game of Thrones. I read the novels, so I have a tendency to
blurt out, “THAT WASN'T IN THE BOOKS!!!” while watching. Sorry.
Except not really.
My favorite movies include The Princess Bride, Monty Python and the
Holy Grail, The Emperor's New Groove, The Holiday, Kill Bill,
and…well, I’m sure I’m forgetting a few million. Indiana Jones,
Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter go without saying. I
mean, you really shouldn't need to ask, right? I used to watch a
lot of anime, but not so much anymore. I really like anything by
Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli.
Currently, I have Steam
burned into my soul. I listen to a lot of
swing-era music because I dance to it, but it’s not my favorite
thing to listen to. I like rock, alternative, classic rock, that
new indie rock/pop genre that everybody plays now and tries to pass
off as alternative, and 80s pop music. Music isn't really a passion
of mine. I still listen to the radio, and I've only bought a
handful of mp3s. I know that sounds weird, but...well, I'm
I like all sorts of food, especially foreign cuisine. Indian, Thai,
Mexican, Moroccan...it's all good! My favorite is sushi <3
However, I will eat practically anything if given the opportunity.
I’m easy to please, and I don’t necessarily feel like price
dictates quality. I love to cook and bake. I'm the coworker who
brings cupcakes for every minor holiday year-round.
