Books: For years I preferred non-fiction (some favorites: Fiddler
on The Subway, The Unlikely Disciple, Crashing Through, The
Know-It-All) but recently I've been getting into fiction, which has
surprised me but I'm enjoying it.
Movies: Similar to my affection for non-fiction books, I enjoy
documentaries--I think there are so many amazing real life stories
to learn about. Some favorite docs include: To Be and To Have,
Spellbound, Mad Hot Ballroom, Tyson, Encounters at the End of
World. Just watched a great documentary about the band Journey!
There is definitely room for non-documentaries too.
Food: I love good ole fashioned comfort food, nothing like a great
plate of spaghetti with some garlic bread and a salad. Like most
8-year-olds, I love pizza and ice cream. I love baked goods and
good bakeries (as referenced above)! I also love visiting farmers
markets and sampling the fresh fruit and vegetables.
Stand-Up: I'm really into stand-up comedy lately-have been to some
fun shows in the past couple of years-seen Dave Chapelle, John
Mulaney, Seth Meyers, Hannibal Buress. Was supposed to see Tig
Notaro but unfortunately that was cancelled. Seeing Demetri Martin
soon. Would love to see Bill Burr and Louis CK. Always looking for
new recommendations on great comedians!
TV Series: I tend to stick to comedies or dramas that aren't too
dark or serious. I know that in the last several years there have
been so many spectacular dramatic series but I tend to avoid them
because unfortunately I just tend to find them too upsetting.
Current and past favorite shows include: How I Met Your Mother,
Gilmore Girls, New Girl, Mindy Project, Project Runway, Girls,
Veronica Mars, West Wing, Parks and Recreation.
