I collect books. I have several hundreds, spanning the gamut of
genres. I actually enjoy the physical appearnce of the book itself,
so I'll gladly pay more for high quality, hardcover, or early
The kinds I enjoy reading: sci-fi by Orson Scott Card, Douglas
Adams, L. Ron Hubbard (gasp!)
Fantasy by Piers Anthony, Tolkein, J.K. Rowling, GRR Martin,
Classics by A.C. Doyle, Lewis Carroll, Jules Verne.
I also enjoy European medieval and Renaissance literature,
historical accounts and essays, and classic Eastern
Movies: I enjoy those that really make you sit and think about what
you just saw. I do enjoy complex plots and action and hijinks as
well. One of my favorite plots is the small crew needing to
sacrifice themselves on an impossible expedition to save humanity
by stopping the asteroid/restarting the sun/fixing the earth.
Specifically: Sunshine, The Court Jester, Momento, Murder By Death,
The Lord of the Rings trilogy
I can stand most styles and genres, although a lot of current music
I find to be rubbish. Occasionally something will stand out truly
unique and meaningful that I really enjoy, but that doesn't happen
too often. Sometimes it depends on the mood and location as to what
I'm feeling like listening to. What I enjoy best are classical
music of the Late Classical to Romantic periods, choral music from
the Renaissance period, novelty piano, Early Jazz/Dixieland/Big
Band songs, and Power Metal. An odd menagerie, I know.
Specifically: Gottschalk, George Gershwin, Kamelot, Enigma.
I could eat pot-stickers until I'm fat.
Marie Callender's potpies will be the death of me.
I drink a gallon of milk over the course of several days.
My cheap-as-dirt coffee preparation in my hipster-approved French
I'm actually the most adventurous of my family in trying out and
creating new recipes for various meats and dishes. They are in fact
the guinea pigs for my creations, and I'm usually successful.
TV shows: If the show has a laugh track, I'm not laughing. I prefer
police and legal procedurals, clever action comedies, and intense
dramas. I'm in the process of watching the original Mission:
Impossible series, a classy, clever, and suspenseful show.
"Reality" shows are vapid crap. I don't care about The Real
Basketball Housewives of Detroitlanta Shore. People ugly on the
inside are the worst.
Specifically: Dexter, Law & Order: SVU, Chuck, Mad Men, Eureka,
