I'm a reader. A life-long love affair with books has been one of
the one great things I can say I've achieved in my lifetime.
I've read some great classics and such, even books like James
Clavell's "Shogun", but I want to get ahold of "Memoirs of a
Geisha" and "The Last Samurai". But I have read Shakespeare's works
-- I LOVE his comedies! -- and a lot of the great epics of
I love fantasy and sci-fi books, plus a few vampire or werewolf
tales thrown into the mix. Patricia Briggs, P. N. Elrod, Anne
McCaffrey, Ben Weber, P. C. and Kristen Cast are some of my
favorite authors. If I had to name just one book out of them all,
I'd probably pick the first fantasy book I ever read: "The White
Dragon" by Anne McCaffrey. One of my all time favs!
Movies? I like anything save for horror/slasher/terror flicks and
basically anything that involves an unhappy ending (at least those
that end in a really bad way). I'm a big sci-fi and fantasy fan as
well, plus I always watch anything animated: from Disney to
Japanese Anime (Studio Ghibl is the best!). You want to impress me?
Tell me you like either "Kung-Fu Panda", "Howl's Moving Castle" or
"Starchaser: The Legend of Orin"... I'll be your friend for life.
I've got a wide taste in music; usually anything that sounds good
to me, save for most music that delivers negative messages or
themes. I mostly stick to rock, rock n' roll, country, some pop,
classics, old-time and the celtic variety. ZZ Top, George
Thorogood, Toby Keith, Huey Lewis & The News and others of the
like are some of my favorites. I'm a child of the 80's after all.
Food, well, that covers a wide spread! But my favorites are
home-cooking, Italian, Mexican, Chinese and a few of the local
favorites like Cubans, pizzeria pizza and such.
