Food: I eat almost everything and particularly enjoy spicy food. I
did tone it down a bit though after I asked for a restaurant meal
once to be, "as spicy as possible," and got exactly that. I'm a
particular fan of Indian and Thai.
Movies: I enjoy a variety of genres of movies, such as, in no
particular order: Terminator, Taken, Enemy of the State, Fargo,
Pulp Fiction, The Fugitive, Groundhog day, etc. I even like some
border-line chick flicks like Titanic.
TV: I rarely watch sports on TV, except for occasional championship
games (annual tradition for a Boston fan lately). If I'm flipping
channels I'll usually stop at one of these: Seinfeld, Family Guy,
South Park, Law and Order SVU. I'm a bit fan of the old Twilight
Zone episodes too.
Books: Lately I have been reading nonfiction books on urban design,
a random hobby of mine.
