My bed is held up by bookshelves -- no joke, they are custom made
for it. I read streetsblog
almost every day. For
fiction, I mostly read for escapism, and I tend to stick with
authors I like. Some recent favorites: Charles Stross
, Iain (M.) Banks, Walter Jon
Sometimes I am cool (and listen to Jenny Owen Youngs on vinyl),
sometimes I am 14 (and listen to Owl City or Macklemore), sometimes
I am nostalgic (and listen to Eve 6), sometimes I am fresh (and
listen to whatever's on Hype machine), and sometimes I just really
miss summer (and listen to Buck-O-Nine).
Indian (well, Nepalese), and soul food (collards, okra, ribs) are
my comfort cuisines. I will go out of my way for good Thai or a
tasty banh mi. My tolerance for spicy food is far higher than it
needs to be, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
The worst thing I ever ate was boiled prickly-pear cactus, which I
actually couldn't force myself to chew long enough to swallow. It
was like slimy milkweed-flavored green beans.
