I'll try to stop myself from listing too much.
Books - I'll admit. I don't read many books. The past few I've read
have been about TV shows, networks, or personalities which probably
shouldn't count. I'll get more regimented one of these days. I have
enjoyed Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Count of Monte Cristo,
and some Orwell though.
Movies: There's a lot. I think my top 5 has to be Stranger Than
Fiction, Superbad, Ocean's Eleven, A Knight's Tale, and Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Others I like include, Bridemaids, I Love You Man, About Time, The
Dark Knight, Star Wars, Inception, Warrior, and so many
TV Show - (Current) Mad Men, The Middle, Parks & Rec, Louie,
Brooklyn Nine Nine, The Walking Dead, The Americans, The Big Bang
Theory, Archer, SNL, Hannibal, Agents of SHIELD, Fargo, The Mindy
Project, Parenthood, Shameless, It's Always Sunny, Game of Thrones,
True Detective, Girls
(Past Favorites) 30 Rock, Community, Malcolm in the Middle, Cheers,
Frasier, Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, and many others I feel
bad for not listing.
Music: Let's face it, there's a lot of music out there and the
chances of overlap are low. My favorites are Carbon Leaf, James,
Gaelic Storm, and I've been on a big Kelly Clarkson kick for most
Food: I eat more Qdoba than I probably should. I love hot foods (if
you know anywhere with good wings, I want that knowledge). I'm not
very adventurous about my food but that has more to do about
motivation to find it than desire to try.
