English major here. "Flowers for Algernon" was possibly one of the
best books that I've ever read. I'll read almost anything by Tom
Robbins, Dostoevsky (or any other morbid Russian, for that matter),
and Leon Uris. I'll stop here with the books, because I would
otherwise go on forever.
I will happily admit to owning "Snakes on a Plane" on DVD. I love
watching documentaries of any variety, which frequently results in
fervent topic-specific internet searches. Also on this list: the
rare film that will make me cry (I include "Toy Story 3" and
"Bridesmaids" in this tear-jerker category, so I have the feeling
my definition of "sad" is slightly off-kilter).
I read too many food blogs to be able to pick a favorite food, but
I am currently obsessed with the toppings bar at 16 Handles (not
the froyo, just the toppings). As a result of growing up in a New
York-Jewish household, I take lots of comfort in fried potatoes,
briny/pickled items, and cured meats of any variety. I will dump
half a bottle of hot sauce on almost anything, and I will not put
butter in my coffee (the NYTimes says that's a thing?).
