I read a lot. Nine Stories will always be on my list. The best book
I read in 2013 was The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson. The
Unbearable Lightness of Being is still my favorite ever. Also: A
Confederacy of Dunces, A.A. Milne poems, Roald Dahl short stories.
Alice in Wonderland. Just read Neil Gaiman's Ocean at the End of
the Lane, and it made me cry on the subway.
I'm not much of a movie-watcher, but I do love Paul Newman. Also,
documentaries about weird people - Fundamentalist Mormons, pop-star
I watch a lot of HBO. Game of Thrones is obvi brillz. True Blood.
Downton Abbey. And reality shows about overprivileged,
understimulated women are my guilty pleasures.
Foodwise, I love my own cooking. It makes me a cheap date, because
I'd rather cook for myself(/us) than go out. I make a damn good
bolognese. Artichokes. Gummies. Black licorice wheels. Oysters and
Some music I like: Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Jolie Holland, Billie
Holiday, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams Sr., Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly,
David Bowie, Bach's choral music, most opera, but especially
Puccini and Verdi.
The three men I'd like to go back in time to sleep with:
William Shatner, in 1969
Bob Dylan, in 1965
Paul Newman, in 1967 (or really, any time ever)
