A good movie theater might the only thing for which I'm willing to cross the Seine!
My previous job afforded me ample free time to read poetry and rage at The Economist's paywall, so there was that...
More seriously: my previous boss told me that I have "la flemme des anglais." Apparently I didn't have the temperament to work at a financial firm.
Books: The wit of Wilde and Wodehouse, the humanist compassion of Dostoyevsky and Camus. Hesse, bien sûr.
Poetry: Larkin, because he sees what's really always there. Roethke, for the inexorable sadness of pencils. Auden and his accessibility. Hardy for his influence on Larkin. Rilke's ability to somehow transcend it all. Yevtushenko's empathy and joie de vivre. K Koch, for being pretty damn funny.
Movies: Where to begin? The French New Wave, specifically Rohmer's moral tales. The Merchant Ivory films. Recent Almodovar movies. Losey because of the incomparable seductiveness of The Servant and Accident. Mankiewicz, if only because of Sleuth.
TV: Breaking Bad for its intensity, Mad Men for its subtlety. Top comedies would be Arrested Development, Peep Show, and Archer.
Music: The Smiths truly are the bee's knees. Bossa nova and jazz-rap also tickle my fancy.
Food: Is there any reason to go beyond the quintessentially French steak frites? I'm a bit of a rube. I like discovering reasonably priced restaurants with decent fare: L'as du Falafel, Chartier, the rue Saint Anne restaurants, Chez Gladines.
No, really, it comes in waves. There was a time when I ate, slept, and drank cinema (I recall a week in Busan, holed up in my apartment, watching 3, 4, 5 movies a day). Then, much later, there was a period of gobbling down TV shows.
Nowadays it's modernist poetry. But hey, poetry makes nothing happen.
Ink runs from the corners of my mouth. I have been eating poetry.

You want to (try to?) get last-minute tickets to the Opera with me.
