Books, films, shows, and music: Far too many to list, and varied
enough that a list wouldn't tell you much about me. What's more
important is *why* they are my favourites, and you'll need to ask
me that :)
That said, I ought to list a few favourites, in no particular
order: Good Omens, Neverwhere, Ender's Game, The Alchemist, The
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; The Fifth Element, The Grand
Budapest Hotel, Star Wars (IV–VI), Inception, The Princess Bride;
Lost, Homeland, House of Cards, Battlestar Galactica, Archer; The
Beatles, The Beach Boys (Heroes and Villians, seriously), The
Hi-Lo's, Elton John, Billy Joel.
Also, why doesn't OKCupid include 'Theatre' in the question?
Contributing to the cultural wasteland...
Food: I'm a sucker for an amazing Eggs Benedict (and pretty much
any other egg-related breakfast). Finding good burgers outside of
the US has also proven a nice challenge, though the London burger
scene is doing a top job so far (Burger & Lobster = one of the
best I've ever had).
Some of my favourite meals in the last 5 years have been in
specific parts of the world, which may tell you more than the
dishes themselves: Auckland, the Côte d'Azur, Zurich, Miami
Drinks: I'm (minorly) allergic to hops and sulphites, so don't
invite me to a beer and wine bar unless you're ok with me having
Luckily, these allergies have lead me to discover alternate
categories of fine alcohol beverages — namely, whiskey (Single Malt
Scotch and bourbon, preferably) and Port (tawny, ruby, and white),
as well as a healthy interest in spiced rum (can't grow up in the
tropics without it).
If you're a whiskey drinker, we shall get along just fine; if not,
I won't judge you for it :)
