Single, sarcastic cook with a degree in filmmaking, which means I work as a cook. Been in Seattle for 7 years after growing up in Houston and living in Minneapolis for 12 years.
Going through a parent's decisions & seeing the mistakes they made that are still being fixed 20 years later, makes me re-examine a lot of decisions: Currently trying to free myself of a lot of possessions that I no longer feel are worth keeping - Having a large book & dvd collection is cool - but it doesn't need to take up most of the space in my apartment.
In the last 8 months, I've "cured' myself of a 13 can a day soda habit and have been eating healthier. 1 year of no McDonald's is leading me to say good-bye to all fast food by 40 (Dicks's is still the best place at 2am). Trying to conquer my habit of working out in 4 months bursts then stopping. Need to make it 6 months and I should be on the road to a healthier life.
Explaining 49 year history of Dr Who (1st I can describe the storyline, then I can give you a break down of behind the scene roles)
sitting in front of a computer with a pile of photos & some home movies, and 10 hours later I've created an emotionally moving tribute video to someone who's not really that great of a person
Favorite films: English Patient, Waterlands, Damaged, Reversal of Fortune
Books: Loved Stephen King for 20 years, just haven't had the strength to read any of his latest in 5 years. Have been reading a lot of non-fiction, History of politics books. In 5 years haven't found anything as good as Team of Rivals. Update: I got a Kindle - this thing kicks ass. I've finished books faster then ever before. Working on organizing a library of what I haven't read & loading it up.
Music: Tuned out music about 8 years ago. (In August I knowingly listened to Coldplay for the first time). My 160gb Ipod is loaded with the Doors, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Lennon, Tom Petty, & Zeppelin.
TV: Dr Who (classic & New, it's the same show), Walking Dead (it didn't follow the path of Heroes & start to suck), Breaking Bad (find myself agreeing with Mr White too much), Mad Men
