a) I'm horribly under-read. Stuff I like: Anything by Steven Brust.
. I'm very fond of Heinlein as well,
particularly Stranger in a Strange
. I've finally read American Gods
and Good Omens
and loved both of
I'm just now getting into Seressia Glass' Shadow Blade
exactly two so far, but they're very fun contemporary dark
I'll also include comics here and point out I'm fond of Warren
Ellis' work (particularly Transmetropolitan),
Grimjack, and I'm currently grooving on 100 Bullets.
Also, Joe Linsner
is a god amongst men and his comic Dawn reflects this.

include: The Princess Bride, The Breakfast Club,
LotR, The Matrix, Fight Club, Big
Trouble in Little China, UHF, Equilibrium, V For Vendetta, Kill Bill*, Spider-Man*,Serenity (and Firefly), Scott Pilgrim Vs. the

anything else by John

(d) Eat to live or live to eat? More the second. That said, I've
recently had to limit my diet due to health concerns. This hasn't
stopped me from eating good food, just limiting how much of it I
take in at a time.
On my plate you will find dead cow, sushi, Chinese, good
Italian, and I'll try virtually anything once. I occasionally like
to cook and don't think I suck at it. Then again, I have burned
spaghetti. Not the sauce, the noodles.
Bonus: TV shows: Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Law and Order,
Crossing Jordan, Dr. Who, Torchwood, Ghost Hunters, Battlestar
Galactica, Burn Notice, Flash Forward, House.
