Okay, for now, this what I have been listening to each day for more
than two weeks. I love this concert! I so
see them live!
Also, this is one of my favorite songs and I must see this band
live someday! (amazing concert in this video, even though it is
staged for the video as I can tell from the making-of video):
For other entertainment, I watch Hulu or Netflix. I usually lean
towards comedies or documentaries. I am not really into violence or
gory stuff. I think that reality shows are usually pretty
I seldom watch the news or read newspapers. It is too depressing
and I loathe being lied to. I am not really missing much anyway as
my friends fill me in on the big stuff. Like, "Hey, pretty sad
about the tsunami, huh?"
I am not really into sports of any kind. Super big yawn for me. I
will watch the Superbowl occasionally just to see the funny
commercials or the performances. However, I couldn't care less for
the game. Most of it is just too macho for me. My team is better
than yours, blah, blah, blah. I understand it but it is just not
I stayed with my mother for six weeks starting last October while
helping her recover from knee replacement surgery. I watched a
bunch of TV (including the news) there. I think I had enough for my
lifetime then. Ugh!
I cook all of my own meals from scratch except the occasional
seasoned rice package. I still haven't found the perfect Cuban
black bean and rice recipe. *sigh* UPDATE: I learned that what I
want is called Moros y Christianos. Getting closer to making this!
I try to eat healthily. Preparing food is not
a chore for
me. I love to cook! You won't find ice cream in my freezer or
packaged foods in my cupboards. I don't eat a lot of sweets. I like
chocolate but prefer 75% cacao or higher because it has less sugar
and more chocolate.
When I snack, it's either fruit, nuts or something at least
slightly healthy. I believe that it starts at the grocery store. I
don't grocery shop hungry. If I don't buy it, I won't eat it.
I do like to eat out on occasion just not Mexican. Mine is way
better! I do like Quality Burrito
(a restaurant in Olympia)
though. They kind of got their own thing going on.
, I have a thing for spaghetti
. I also love a good salad.
Oh, great! I just made myself hungry.
The books I read are mainly technical in nature. Novels tend to
bore me pretty fast and I never finish them. I also love a good
cookbook. Also, art books can be fun I just don't have many.
I usually read what I need online these days. I find the screen
easier to read than on paper anyway.
