Books: I love to read, but leisure reading fell by the wayside
during my first year of law school. Authors: Jhumpa Lahiri (The
Namesake, Unaccustomed Earth) and Henri Nouwen. Some all-time
favorite books: Blue Clay People: Seasons on Africa’s Fragile Edge;
Strength in what Remains; The Rule of Four.
Movies: I’m not a huge movie-watcher. In fact, I have probably seen
the least number of movies of any person you know. That said, my
tastes tend toward the quirky and humorous with a bit of dark side
(Sordid Lives, Best in Show, Clueless), musicals (Rent, Everyone
Says I Love You, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) or films about
migration (Amreeka, The Visitor). All-time favorite would have to
be Pride and Prejudice (BBC version) (which fits into none of the
above categories, I know).
Shows: My all-time favorite TV show is Alias. Bonus points to
anyone who loves this show! Currently watching Glee, the Office,
Desperate Housewives and Modern Family.
Food: Mostly veggie. I especially love Asian (Vietnamese, Nepali,
Indian, Thai), Ethiopian and Middle Eastern cuisine. I love cooking
and baking for groups and parties, not so much just for myself :)
