As i said, absolutely anything by Heinlein
. The man is a genius. And
I never cease to be surprised by some of the things he was bold
enough to write about back then. Some of those subjects are still
rather sensitive topics. At any rate, as I said, love my fiction,
, good mysteries/thrillers, and
even the occasional Nora Roberts. Spider Robinson
Lackey, Anne McCaffery, Piers Anthony, Laurell K. Hamilton
Scott Card, Dean Koontz, Patricia Cornwell, Robin Cook, Lisa
Scottoline, Terry Goodkind, Christopher Moore (Lamb: The Gospel
According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
in particular), etc.,
etc., etc... Those are just the ones that come to mind quickly.
Generally prefer fiction, but do read a lot of non-fiction on the
various subjects that fascinate me. Of late, Neurolinguistic
Programming for Dummies
(yes, it truly is a real book),
Wheelock's basic Latin textbook, couple of Gaelic texts, a
collection of German poetry, all kinds of dog training/operant
conditioning references, treatises on criminalistics, and almost
ANYTHING about comparative religion or history of mythology.
I live for movies with Gene Wilder
and Richard Pryor
. See No
Evil, Hear No Evil
is peerless and I have yet to see a
movie that could compete for its place in my affections. Young
(the original) is my idea of a classic. I love a
good comedy, not opposed to action movies that actually have a
plot, and absolutely adore any sort of psychological
horror/thriller (as long as I've got someone there whose hand i can
squeeze!). As with books though, I'm really not all that picky. Lot
of things appeal to me. I must admit though, I really enjoy the
Harry Potter series (books and movies). Is the laughter over now?
(Note: Since writing that bit, I've come to the realization that
I'm not the only one who thoroughly enjoys what was originally
written as a children's series.) But seriously, there's not much
I'm not willing to try, though there aren't a whole lot of movies
I'd really like to pay to see in a theatre. (Besides, the popcorn's
better at home and I don't have to wear pants.) Most recently I've
been watching the Joseph Campbell series Transformations of Myth
. Brilliant man. But no worries, I balance it all
out with some lovely animated comedies. All things in moderation!
Unless it's incredibly fun, of course.
Anything. Well, anything but Tejano and some rap. I'm
not even going to try to list the bands I love, but matchbox 20
the recent favorite, though Pink Floyd
will always top my list.
Listen to everything from Linkin Park
to Dave Matthews Band
. The hard part
is finding a band that I don't
like at all.
I'm willing to try most anything once! (Which is how i
found out that i actually really do like squid sushi...never woulda
guessed that would be possible!). No laughing...seriously...but my
all-time favorite food is the cheap, 3 for a dollar boxes of Hy-Top
. On the bright side, it makes me a pretty cheap
date. Always like Mexican, Italian, steakhouses, etc., but IHOP
seems to be where I end up the most. Don't much like cooking for
myself, so I end up eating a lot of simple sandwiches, smoothies
and such. The strangest food I like (though rarely have anymore) is
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with fresh popcorn in the
middle. And I'm guessing that if you hadn't figured it out already,
I'm not exactly average. Not crazy, but eccentric
is not too far off the mark!
