"What makes lovemaking and reading resemble each other most is that
within both of them times and spaces open, different from
measurable time and space." - Calvino

Music is an essential part of life, especially live shows/
performance - I crave the visceral and emotional energy. I've
really been into electronic music lately - especially dark, dirty,
funky techno (e.g.

Food: Most. Especially if it has garlic. Or ginger. Or both. And
noodles. Man, I love noodles. I'm an omnivore but have been
becoming increasingly less desirous of meat and more picky about
where it comes from. I also absolutely applaud the emergence of
vegan/healthy/local/alternative eating choices as a real part of
our everyday food culture (at least in the bay area) and not
viewing them as strange forms of self-denial.
I rarely "just don't care" what I eat. Depending on the night I
enjoy exploring new places to eat out (or old favorites) or
creating something spontaneous at home. Also, I will definitely
cook for you if you give me the chance!
