I'm a lover of books and music. I almost exclusively read YA and

Musically I listen to a lot of Japanese music: Arashi, Kokia, Koda
Kumi, Perfume, etc. Ninety nine times out of a hundred, I'm

Rob Thomas and Adam Lambert. Genres I like include dance-pop,
hip-pop, Celtic, and whatever genre Utada is. But there are songs
outside of those genres that get to me, too.
Movies: Groundhog Day, Strictly Ballroom, Sen to Chihiro no
Kamikakushi (aka Spirited Away), Soap Dish, Princess Bride, GANTZ,
The Secret World of Arrietty, just about anything that makes me

because I don't generally consider myself a movie person even

Yes, I love anime, but only the ones that live up to my high
standards. Not going to lie, it's hard to do. Fullmetal Alchemist:
Brotherhood, Eden of the East, Ouran High School Host Club, and
Hyouka are on the top of my list right now.
I watch a lot of Japanese dramas, too: Ryusei no Kizuna, Kagi no
Kakatta Heya, Stand Up!!, Densha Otoko, and Lucky Seven, to name a
I also like So You Think You Can Dance and Project Runway.
Japanese. Surprise! Takoyaki, okonomiyaki, shabushabu, oyakodon,
yakitori, yakiniku, monja... it's pretty much all delicious. Only
thing I don't like much is tempura.
Lots of kinds of cheese, pesto pasta, garlic, most fruits excepting
bananas (ugh) melons (ugh) and grapefruits (aksjgkjasdf ugh),
artichokes, fish, salads.
