I read a lot. I get the daily paper (I'm very 20th century). I love
to read fantasy (George R. R. Martin, the late Robert Jordan, Terry
Brooks, etc ...) mystery (Michael Connelly, John Sandford, etc
...), technothrillers (Douglas preston, Lincoln Child, Michael
Crichton, etc ...) and a bit of non-fiction (e.g. Malcom Gladwell,
as well as technology and history). I read so much at work that
most of what I read is what I call tripe (fun, but hardly
literature). I haven't bought a novel for myself in years, the
library is my friend.
When it comes to films I tend to prefer action and comedy flicks.
The last three movies I saw in the theater were The Hobbit (ok, but
too much filler), Skyfall and Lincoln (absolutely *amazing*
performance by Daniel Day-Lewis). I don't watch that much
television aside from sports (and then not as much as I
Music is usually the radio with a mix of Pop, Alternative and
hip-hop. It may surprise you to know know what over 75% of the
albums I own are hip-hop. That is pretty much all I listened to
from 1988-1994 (when I was buying albums). I still love hip-hop,
but have included more pop and alternative stuff as well. I'm
almost embarrassed to admit I love Broadway as well (love Les Mis
and Phantom of the Opera).
Food is awesome. I wouldn't call myself a foodie (I don't even know
how to define that), but I do love to eat. My favorites are
Chinese, Mexican and Indian. I love dim sum on a Sunday morning.
Recently my son has gone through an experimentation phase so I have
cooked live crabs (that was an adventure), eel (purchased live at
the store), squid (didn't work out well) and most recently lobster
(much easier to cook than I expected). I had a blast doing them
all, and I'm looking forward to trying some new stuff at home. I
really need to get better with sides and vegetables though, that is
my weakness (well that and presentation, I'm not an artist).
