Books: I'm a huge fan of speculative fiction (sci-fi, fantasy,
etc.) and span quite a few sub-genres. I rather enjoy urban
fantasy, dystopic fiction, multiple variants of science fiction,
and just about anything with dragons in it.
Movies: Princess Bride, Ever After, the Thief and the Cobbler,
Disney & other cartoon movies, Repo! the Genetic Opera...a
bunch of others.
Shows: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Primeval, Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse,
Firefly, Stargate SG-1 (no, I'm not done with it yet), Castle,
Music: My music is really wide and varied. It goes from Breaking
Benjamin to Chameleon Circuit to Taylor Swift (yeah, I know--sorry)
to Scissor Sisters to renaissance music to Rent. Don't even bother,
it'd just crazy on my ipod.
Food: I really love pasta, Thai, and Indian.
---An interesting side note: I love webcomics. A lot. :D
