Currently reading (I know I will forget to update this later): The
Mother Tongue: English and How It Got That Way by Bill Bryson. I
don't normally read nonfiction but historical linguistics/etymology
fascinates me. It's my first Bryson book and I'm excited about it.
I'm rather enjoying his writing style (although I found a few tiny

Books: Etymologicon, The Millennium Trilogy and other Scandinavian
thrillers, The Secret Garden and A Little Princess (because I

and Stephen King, Le Petit Prince, tout ce qu'il y a de Baudelaire,
Victor Hugo, Molière, Rimbault (!!)
Movies: An Imitation of Life, To Sir With Love, L'Auberge Espagnol,
L'Arnacœur, Two Days in Paris, Midnight in Paris, La Cage Aux
Folles, Le Dîner des Cons, La Chèvre, les Intouchables, Sherlock
Holmes, Mildred Pierce, What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?
Shows: Modern Family, Always Sunny, Downton Abbey, I netflix Dr.
Who and the new Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and kind of

Music: Lord..... Everything? Favorite style would have to be
neotango I suppose. Ambiance music is always nice. I like hip hop
in the original sense of the word (not to be confused with ghetto

latin styles. Soulful blues/jazz is always appreciated. I was
raised right and on classical music so I LOVE listening to
classical and jazz to unwind. I have also even been known to
tolerate country (rarely, but it happens).
Oh goodness Food: EVERYTHING
