Oh god, is that really it? I need to get out more. Hint.
2. Screw it I'm tired
Truly, I'm not someone who finds the expression of confidence to be a virtue, even when it seems to be justified. Living in the world has taught me to do the things I'm good at rather than telling other people what I think they are. There's no shortage of ways to make someone a liar, but what we do speaks for itself, and can't readily be undone.
If you happen to like beards though, I usually keep mine cropped close, as I don't like eating beard hairs any more than you would, say, getting some soup at Panera.
First, you can see some of what books I've read and liked here, although I don't really update this thing or have any interest in ensuring that it's complete or accurate: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4660036-bill
Like I said, I'm a big fan of medieval literature, so when it comes to, say, modern and/or American stuff, I'm not really much of an expert. Sit me down with some Chaucer or Cædmon's Hymn and I'm happy as a clam, but most literary works written in the 20th century are going to be a real chore. Accordingly, most of my pleasure reading tends toward popular and historical novels, Romantic-era fiction, and stuff about medieval Europe or antiquity.
I've read all (some) of the big franchises out recently... Harry Potter, Hunger Games, the Millennium trilogy, etc., and I can dig most of them. On the other hand, I find the works of Stephenie Meyer, Dan Brown, and Christopher Paolini so terrible I haven't been able to finish one yet. So, sorry if you like those, but you really shouldn't.
As for movies, I can find a reason to like most of the ones I see. I'm trying to creep into some critical work on book-to-film adaptation, so lately I've been watching a lot of those... (which is also why I've paid particular attention to the popular novel series I mentioned). I also love Spaghetti Westerns, Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, the Coen brothers, Christopher Guest, Star Trek, a range of anime titles, and Tarantino.
I don't watch too many TV shows regularly, but I used to try not to miss Jeopardy! or Chopped (a pleasure I do not feel guilty about, tyvm). Arrested Development, the Star Treks, many AMC, HBO, Showtime series, 30 Rock, Law & Order (classic), and both The Offices are among what I consider the best and most entertaining television of my adulthood.
Music perplexes me. Well, how other people talk and seem to think about music perplexes me. I have bands, songs, composers, instruments, and genres that I like quite a bit, but it really never occurs to me to listen to music unless I'm craving one or more of the above in particular. The notion of always having music playing as some sort of soundtrack for day-to-day activities seems bizarre to me.
When I am to be found listening to music though, I especially like: Enon, The Dismemberment Plan, Pavement, Belle and Sebastian, God Help the Girl, Gigi (Maintenant), Ennio Morricone, Daft Punk, Fleet Foxes, The Ball Sisters Band, Beethoven, Lucky Soul, and George Gershwin.
And last, but foremost, food... I'm a pretty decent cook, and I love Tex Mex and Caribbean food, Italian-American classics, a variety of Indian cuisines, the little bit of Thai I've been exposed to, Greek, classical French (as though I could afford it) and above all pizza. Pizza is the greatest food, the only food civilization really requires. If pizza is not available, for some apocalyptic reason, and I'm too tired to cook, I frequently end up stopping at Swensons or Chipotle. A bit too frequently, my belt informs me...
But to be fair, if you take my phone away I will cut you.
Do you ever feel like your plans and your regrets, almost, cancel each other out?
