Books: Anything by Michael Connelly, John Lescroart, or Brad
Meltzer. I love mysteries, cosies, thrillers... anything in that
general area of the store -- the darker, the better!
Movies (and this is not an inclusive list): Seven, Pulp Fiction,
American Beauty, The Shawshank Redemption, Mulan, Ocean's Eleven
(the remake), any movie with Mae West, X-Men and X-2 (but NOT X-3),
Evita, Office Space, Elizabethtown, Snakes on a Plane.
Music: I enjoy most genres of music. My current music collection
includes everything from Christian to Eminem, and Garth Brooks to
Tupac. I also like classical, Broadway showtunes, pop, and
contemporary adult music. My all-time favourite, though, is Michael
Jackson. If you don't/didn't like him or if you have negative
feelings about him, just stop reading now.
Food: I love food. I especially enjoy Mexican (I eat at El Rey for
lunch way too much), Indian (I love the buffet at Minar Palace),
Ethiopian (I go to Kaffa's Crossing for their veggie combo pretty
often), and sushi (for my money, you can't beat AKI). And tacos. I
could eat tacos almost every day.
Favourite television shows: Person of Interest, SVU, Covert
Affairs, The Good Wife, The Voice, The Mentalist, Project Runway,
Survivor, Big Brother, Top Chef, How I Met Your Mother, The Big
Shows I've loved that I'm now mourning (to give you a broader view
of my tastes): Friday Night Lights, The Chicago Code, FlashForward,
Lie to Me, Joan of Arcadia, Sports Night, Friends, Alcatraz, Awake,
