I love to read. I have difficulties with reading one book at a
time. Paulo Freire recently rocked my world (whereas the new DSM 5
decidedly has not). Mad in American has been an interesting, but
disturbing read, as has Black and Blue. While I am not reading the
series at present, the Dresden Files hold a special place in my
For additional thoughts on reading-
As for movies, I a few of my favorites include A Town Called Panic;
Better Off Dead; Good Will Hunting; The Constant Gardener; Amelie;
Goodbye, Lenin!; Kung Fu Hustle; Star Wars (the old ones);
Despicable Me; Harold and Maude. I cannot deal with horror movies.
I was a little disturbed by The Blob, and frankly, that movie

I do not watch a lot of TV, but I do have a soft spot in my heart
for Top Gear, Black Books, Big Bang Theory, That Mitchell and Webb
Look, Totally Biased, and the Daily Show. Of late, I have been

I listen mostly to rock. Inis Mona by Eluveitie will be the music
for the epic battle scene in the movie of my life. Don't Let the
Bastards Grind You Down by the Toasters is what I listen to when I

In regards to food, I will try just about anything once (please
refer to the photo featuring me and chicken pudding) and I enjoy
trying new dishes. It is really fun to cook for others. I am truly
incapable of cooking for small numbers of people. I tend to eat
more vegan and am trying to keep up with the gluten-free thing, but
sometimes you just need some fried chicken...
