Books: Only the nerdiest and high school curriculum...iest...
books. Honestly I'm much more likely to be reading a text book or
some 'how-to' sort of deal than I am to be going over Dostoevsky
again. I love to read but I find I've been having trouble making
the time to sit down and, well, make the time. That said I will
almost always have an audio book on whenever I'm driving.
Movies: Moulin Rouge and My Fair Lady. (No joke.) I watch a lot of
movies, and there are very few that I don't like. Odds are that
unless it's a dance competition movie I will love it. Exception of
Breakin 2. That's just good ol' fashioned fun.
TV: Arrested Development, Archer, Always Sunny, Just about anything
with 'Star' in the title, Futurama, Top Gear UK, Doctor Who,
Stella, Party Down, Bored to Death, Venture Bros, Misfits, Jeeves
and Wooster, so on and so forth.
