Let me tell You, my favourite punctuation has got to be the /. I
need it so very often to express my inner conflicts. Ha. Other than
that, I don't really like playing favourites.
I'm kind of obsessive about reading the New Yorker. I will say this
about books, though. I'm wearied--WEARIED--by the apparent
requisite of non-linearity as a plot device in contemporary
fiction. For this reason, I find myself turning for relief to
mystery novels, where typically one thing happens after another.
Also, essays and short stories; that's what novels are made up of
these days anyway.
When I was in college I'd go to the flicks several times a week;
now I generally feel like it's too passive an activity. I'm more
looking for someone to help me learn to rock-climb. However, I saw
Le Scaphandre et le Papillon recently and did not at all consider
it a waste of time. I also saw Nadine last year at the Warsaw Film
Festival. It was good. I see most action flicks.
I like rhythmic music and inventive rhymes. But mostly when You see
me bounding along in my headphones, I'm listening to people talking
on the radio. I guess I'm sort of a novelty-seeker except when I'm
feeling overstimulated. Then I (was going to say that I listen to
old standbys like Stevie Wonder or the Police or, frankly,
classical music, but really I) don't listen to anything except the
kids on the playground outside and my new travel alarm clock
ticking itself to eternity. Theorizing aside, I just did a sort of
my iTunes library by play count and Patty Griffin came up twice in
the top 5. Caution: I sing along. #6 is the song I do sit-ups
I like food if it's vegetarian. And coffee.
