books: creative nonfiction and memoir. Anne Lamott, Natalie
Goldberg, Pema Chodron, Cheri Huber, David Sedaris, Augusten

used to be a big fiction consumer; I think perhaps I've replaced
that with really good art film.
Movies: Annie Hall, Truman Show, Magnolia, American Beauty, Catch
and Release, Goodfellas, The Breakfast Club, The Daytrippers,
Chasing Amy, Flirting With Disaster...almost anything
indie/foreign/documentary. (there are so many more. there's no way

I have discovered (sort of to my dismay) that I am much more likely

I own seasons 1-5 of The Office.
I don't have a DVR but use my iPod as if it is one, and podcast the

The Story, and a few more), Filmspotting, The Interdependence

music: very eclectic, and always open to discovering more.

new age music (Deva Primal, Krishna Das...a must for yoga and
Just discovered a great group called The Mountain Goats.
food: recently changed how I eat....mostly whole foods (not a
fanatic!). I don't eat wheat or sugar anymore, but I bake like a
fiend and people can't tell the difference. sushi (cooked and
veggie), avadado, edamame, summer fruits. Quinoa. Sweet potato
chips. (regular potato chips!) My dad's grilled BBW salmon.
