Books: I will always be a Harry Potter fanatic including reference
books and even some FF. Stephen King is my all time favorite author
and I have read IT probably four times. Dean Koontz is a close
second. I love reading about Roman and Greek mythology as well as
Arthurian legends. Stephen Fry is a perennial favorite. Seriously
type in 'QI' into Youtube, I am obsessed with that show.
Movies: I have thousands of favorite movies (really) so I will just
list my favorite genres: Thrillers, Horror, Mystery, Drama, Comedy,
Foreign, Independent, Animation, Fantasy. If the plot is well
thought out and the acting is genuine I will most likely enjoy the
Shows: QI, Nevermind the Buzzcocks, Russell Howard's Good News,
Skins (I refuse to acknowledge the horrible American remake), The
Big Bang Theory, The Middle, Modern Family, Supernatural (arguably
my very favorite show), Buffy, Angel, Criminal Minds, Anything with
Gordon Ramsay, Colbert Report.
Music: Once again I am all over the board about this. I will list
genres instead of bands and artists because I will not have enough
room to write all of them. Brit Pop, Brit rock, Brit Hip Hop, Alt
Rock, Pop, Techno, Oldies (I'm talking 50's-70's here), Showtunes,
some country like Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn, Indie, and some
Food: Italian and Mexican are amazing but I really want to try
dishes from around the world. I am pretty adventurous when it comes
to food. I lived in Mexico for three years and it still shocks me
how much of the animal Americans throw away because they are
unwilling to try something new. Cow tongue tacos are delicious,
take my word for it!
