I haven't succumbed and gotten a kindle/nook yet, so I probably
have 500 beaten-up, used books boxed up back in NH. I'm kind of a
book killer... My favorites include Harry Potter, the more
mainstream Tolkien, Les Miserables, The Count of Monte Cristo,
Atonement, Angela's Ashes, Anne of Green Gables, Ella Enchanted,
Jane Eyre, and Pride and Prejudice.
TV... 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, The Office, How I Met Your
Mother, Community, Doctor Who, Gilmore Girls, and Band of
Movies... Love Actually, LOTR, Star Wars, X-Men, Fish Tank, Moulin
Rouge, Legally Blonde, Bridesmaids, Hot Fuzz, Jane Eyre, Pride and
Prejudice, How to Train Your Dragon, Beauty and the Beast, and
Tangled. According to the girls I nanny, I pretty much am Rapunzel.
Except when I'm being "mean" and not letting them have dessert for
dinner, strangle the cat, etc.
Music... I don't have a "favorite", since I'm more likely to pick
up songs I like rather than albums. A few songs from my current
walking-about playlist are You," Florence + The Machine's "I'm Not
Calling You a Liar," and Etta James's "Tough Lover" and Irving
Aaronson's "Let's Misbehave." I have a deep and lasting love for
Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera as well. ...Who doesn't love a man in a mask?
Food... I like my steak like I like my men... Bloody and rare.
