Books: I don't really read as much for fun as I should, but I enjoy
reading plays (Shakespeare, Stoppard, etc). I've also recently read
through the Song of Ice and Fire series and have really enjoyed
Movies: I love adventure movies so things like Indiana Jones and
Pirates of the Caribbean are high on the list. I also love older
comedy movies like Airplane! and pretty much anything that Mel
Brooks was behind.
Food: I'm not picky at all. Japanese, Thai, Mexican and Italian are
my "ethnic foods" of choice and almost any kind of seafood ranks
among my favorite.
TV: I feel like keeping up with most TV shows nowadays is
exhausting. That being said some of my favorite shows have included
The Simpsons, 30 Rock, LOST, Futurama and Arrested
Music: I enjoy listening to most genres save for death metal. Rock,
pop, trance, folk, funk -- I love it all. I also have a special
weakness for showtunes.
