"Taboo" by Geoffrey Household

James Bond books by Ian Fleming.
The Richard Sharpe series of books by Bernard Cornwell.
I enjoy reading books about Safaris. "African Game Trails" by
Theodore Roosevelt it is, to say the least, fascinating.
"Man-eaters of Kumaon" by Jim Corbet is also extremely interesting.
"The Man-Eaters of Tsavo" by John Henry Patterson was interesting
but not a riveting read. The movie (The Ghost and the Darkness) was
more exciting although fictionalized to an extent. The lions did
however kill roughly 135 people in just one year which is extremely

In fact he was the only one who shot, Greedo never even gets a shot
Superman vs Batman, Superman wins every time.
Again nothing to debate.

me a good nightmare
I don't have cable.
I will occasionally watch shows on Netflix, Hulu or other online
Burn Notice, The Blacklist.
People have been telling me for years that I'm Ron Swanson, and it
only annoyed me, now having seen the first few seasons of Parks and
Rec I now realize they were complimenting me.
Looking forward to season 3.
I just started watching Sleepy Hollow
