Books - anything and everything. Especially crime (true or
fiction), biographies of performing artists, anything about
performing arts history (particularly ballet). Favourite book ever
is "If on a winter's night a traveller" by Italo Calvino - ask me
about it! At the moment rather than books I'm reading a lot of the
website Quora - check it out, I'm learning a lot.
Movies - I don't do horror or zombie movies, but I'll watch almost
anything else. I love musicals (Rent, West Side Story, Moulin
Rouge) and thrillers. I've recently rediscovered my love of The
Devil's Advocate, brilliant film. Lots of others, can't think of
them all :)
Shows - three favourite shows are Rent, West Side Story, and Jesus
Christ Superstar. I can't separate them and choose a favourite,
they're all at the top of my list. My recent trip to New York has
added a new favourite: Once. Look it up, it's beautiful. I love
theatre, it's my thing (in New York, I saw 14 shows in 18 nights).
I'm always looking out for the next big show, and I probably go to
the theatre (whether ballet, musical, play or concert) every few
UPDATE: I've realised through reading many profiles that to most
people, the word "shows" refers to TV. I think it tells you
something about me that I assumed it meant theatre, but I do love
my TV as well. Medical dramas, cop shows, I love them all. Glee is
my fav show, I'm not afraid to admit it, and I'm also enjoying
catching up on shows like Damages and Luther on DVD. Oh, and I LOVE
So You Think You Can Dance. At the moment I'm absolutely loving The
Music - I love music, particularly pop, but I have very eclectic
tastes and can be found listening to anything from a ballet score
to Christina Aguilera to Pink Floyd. I'm going through a classical
phase at the moment, so my most-played iPod playlist includes
pieces such as Danse Macabre, the Adagio from Spartacus,
Prokofiev's balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, Spiegel im
Spiegel, and Craig Armstrong's film scores.
Food - Italian is my favourite cuisine. I love pizza and pasta. I
also love Mexican food, but not too spicy.
