I'm mostly a fan of Science Fiction and Fantasy novels,
particularly in series since I tend to go through them quickly once
I start. I'm impatiently waiting for the next Wheel of Time
novel and the
next novel in The Kingkiller
, and must confess that I enjoy the Xanth
Beyond that I will read some general adventure type books. I don't
believe that I've read anything non-fiction without being required
to by a class though.
I enjoy Science Fiction and Fantasy movies of course (LOTR
, Star Wars
, etc). I'll also call at the
series (even the fourth one). Thanks to my sisters'
influence I also enjoy a good musical (Singing in the Rain
My Fair Lady
etc) which extends to plays as well (plays in general are nice, but
musicals make them fantastic). Naturally I enjoy a good comedy as
well, and I have a strange attraction to racing movies (horses and
cars) that I don't entirely understand.
Incidentally, I am horrible with knowing actor's names. Seriously.
In spite of my interests I didn't know who Harrison Ford was until
I was about 18. And really I still don't care beyond recognizing
movie characters when other people are talking.
My taste in TV shows is similar. I fairly recently finished
watching Sliders (which was much better in the first couple
seasons) and I'm currently going through Quantum Leap and White Collar
the reason for the hat). Phineas and Ferb
give me my
regular musical fix, and no I am not ashamed of that. Mythbusters
the bulk of my 'educational' programming.
This is probably also a good place to mention that I don't have TV
service anymore. I'm limiting myself to what I can find on
, and Zune
, and I'm liking the extra
time that leaves me though I grumble about the lack of good
real-time video news coverage.
My music taste is also all over the map (and I love that Zune lets
me do that on the cheap). My favorite genres would probably be
classic rock and swing, but I also enjoy country, blues, jazz, etc.
I think the only genre I haven't developed a taste for is rap.
Usually I listen to music that I can sing along with. Frank Sinatra
are probably my favorites for style, range, and
Found this randomly
today and could not keep a straight face all the way home.
Food on the other hand doesn't generally interest me, so my taste
here leans heavily toward food that require little effort to
prepare. Therefore: I eat a lot of canned soup, peanut
butter and jelly sandwiches
, hamburger/chicken (thank you
Forman Grill), Pasta-roni / Rice-a-roni, Steamfresh vegetables,
instant mashed potatos, etc. I probably won't really appreciate
more complex foods, but I wll eat just about anything. Recently
with being on my own I'm starting to branch out into more of what I
would consider cooking. Chili mac and soups aren't bad, and I'm
figuring out paninis. Also quinoa is amazing. Why is there not more
of it in grocery stores?
