Books: Salman Rushdie, Jonathan Safran Foer, Alice Munro, Gabriel
Garcia Marquez (I recently re-read '100 Years of Solitude.' It was
so beautiful I almost died.), Ann Patchett, Anton Chekov, Kurt
Vonnegut, stuff about social issues and politics. I'm in two
bookclubs--one that reads and one that drinks.
TV: The Wire, Friday Night Lights, The Newsroom, Downton Abbey, the
fake news. Probably any show that will be awesome and then taken
off the air after a season. Occasional sports (Mainly college
football. Hook 'em Horns.) The version of reality presented in
Reality TV stresses me out.
Movies: Angels in America; all of the Christopher Guest movies;
Groundhog Day; To Kill a Mockingbird; most movie musicals; all Will
Ferrell movies; almost anything with superheroes. I do not like
scary movies as I do not like to be scared; do not go for the
Music: I really do listen to everything. My iPod (it's a real iPod)
ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime. I have been known to
enjoy catchy hold music.
Food: I have allergies, so my food tastes are limited and
complicated. But I'm good a navigating a menu.
