Books: Anything by Orson Scott Card, Douglas Adams or Ann Patchett,
the His Dark Materials series, and many more. I've been reading the
Discworld books recently.
Shows: I recently finished the Dr Who series and am seriously
hooked. Archer is another favorite. Sometimes I watch Grey's
Anatomy just to make myself angry at how inaccurately the nurses
are portrayed. Firefly, Sherlock, and Under the Dome are other
shows I enjoy. When I was in nursing school, I spent much of my
TV-watching time watching every episode of every Star Trek series
(yes, including Enterprise). I regret nothing.
Music: I'm on a bit of a bluegrass kick right now. I'll listen to
anything, though. I tend to be a bit of a music chameleon - I'll
listen to whatever anybody else turns on and generally I'll like
it. The Lumineers and Hoots and Hellmouth are new favorites.
Food: I'm partial to delicious food. If it's not delicious I
probably won't like it, but I'll still eat it if I'm hungry enough.
I need somebody to teach me how to prepare delicious vegetables.
