Card, to name a few. I love, fiction, sci-fi, and fantasy, mainly;
however, I don't limit myself to those genres.
Movies: Give me wit, give me plot, and characters: realistic or
not. I'd sit through it at least once. As for my tried-and-true
favorites, that list is far too long!

Food: Up until I moved to Florida(2002-April-03), my idea of ethnic
food was the Chinese buffet in my hometown. Since 2002, I've
expanded my palate, and love quite a many cuisines... I'm just at
home at an all-you-can-eat buffet as I am at ANY fancy restaurant,
regardless of cultural influence. I am a lover of food, period. I
can enjoy anything from fast to gourmet food/meals... Only catch is
flour tortillas... I have a love/hate relationship with them; it
depends entirely on how they're used. (However, upon my move to
Austin, I was quickly introduced to and fully endorse breakfast
tacos. Do you have recommendations on where to go for the best of
them, past Taco Deli and Torchy's?)
