Help your potential matches find common interests.
A) The Lord of the Rings trilogy (though its been a long time since
I've read it in its entirety), The Princess Bride, any collections
of Steve Martin's short stories or essays (very very entertaining,
and his autobiography is quite interesting too)
B) The Princess Bride, The Third Man, Lawrence of Arabia, The Usual
Suspects, and since there's no place for TV shows I'm going to
mention: Pushing Daisies, Now and Again, 30 Rock, the Venture
Bros., and Wonderfalls
C) I have no particular musical tastes, which leaves this one all
over the board. Anything from Spinal Tap mock metal to They Might
be Giants to old Smothers Brothers comedy recordings. Just about
any style is ok by me.
D) A nicely grilled steak, pasta, chocolate pie (for which I'm able
to produce a passable specimen)
