Music: In elementary school, I had a tiger sweatshirt that I
believed was the inspiration for "Eye of the Tiger". I've got
pretty eclectic taste and I like almost everything except for metal
and modern country. I'll admit an adolescent fondness for pop, but
I was raised on folk music. Be forewarned. I own too much James
Taylor. 80s new wave is my jam (and I know which version of Take on
Me was the one that took off).
Food: YES. I'm pretty open, although I'm chicken-adverse. I'm a
vegetarian, except for burgers, short rib, pork belly and bacon.
But other than that, I'm all over the vegetarianism.
Movies: Seen some.
Podcasts: Wait Wait, Professor Blastoff, This American Life
(sometimes - it can get a little precious), The Moth, Pop Culture
Happy Hour, etc. I can't stand A Prairie Home Companion.
Books: I am sort of a literature snob and I try to read the Booker
prize short list every year (although we can add this to the list
of things I didn't do last year). I am actively judging you if you
say you like 50 Shades of whatever. Recently I've started reading
crappy mystery novels and they please me. Ayn Rand is awful and I
don't understand the appeal.
TV: I own one and it's fancy and I love it. Netflix/Hulu and I are
one when I turn on my TV. CBS Sunday Morning is my favorite show.
Sex and the City is an abomination, and the real housewives and the
Kardashians deserve a special place in hell. I don't understand the
popularity of Game of Thrones. Breaking Bad was my favorite thing
ever. Now I have to find a new favorite thing ever.
