Books: For years I've 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! 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 6 months-seen Dave Chapelle, John Mulaney,
Seth Meyers, Bill Cosby and going to see Hannibal Buress in March.
Would love to see Demetri Martin, Bill Burr and Louis CK. Always
looking for new recommendations on great comedians!
