As for movies and TV shows, I'm currently into Big Bang Theory and Burn Notice. I wished they hadn't cancelled Chuck. To round it out, I usually enjoy sciencey shows like Myth Busters, How It's Made and documentaries on the Military Channel.
When it comes to food, I prefer spicy, meaty and fried. In the interest of not falling over from a heart attack before next Tuesday, I'm trying to cut down the the fried part :)
