Book(s): Joy Luck Club, All the Things I Need to Know I Learned in
Kindergarten... Both books changed my life! I read them both every
year. I think I just love books that teach me lessons, help me
appreciate things in my own life, or remind me to.
Movies: Joy Luck Club (if I decide to watch it, instead of read the
book for that year. A truly amazing movie! One of the few times
where the movie is better than the book)...
Chick-flick: I appreciate the genre, Serendipity (if I happen to
watch Definitely, Maybe this changes... vice-versa)... No Nicholas
Sparks!!! (I seriously think he makes movies because he hates me,
exception: Walk to Remember... but yet I still watch them.)
Action: The Rock (if people remember that old N. Cage movie)
Big Big Big comic book fan. I like to get my nerd on when
I like too many movies.
Shows: Gilmore Girls, ER!!, Everwood, Parenthood, Naomily (just
them, I don't really care for the other characters... oh, and Katie
Fitch), Modern Family, The Office, Friday Night Lights, Grey's,
Switched at Birth (for the ASL), Bones, Revenge, Vampire Diaries (I
know). Right now my favorite show that I just recently started
watching is Happy Endings.
I watch a lot of TV shows. I really love the references in them. It
helps feed my learning/wikipedia addiction. No reality TV (except
Project Runway and Top Chef are competitions to me)! I once
fantasized that I'd write an episode of something one day.
Music: Hip Hop, OldSchool (Motown variety). Common, Wale, Mos Def,
Kanye, Jay Z, Arrested Development (the hip/hop group, not the
show), Mase, Black Eyed Peas (pre-Elephunk), B.O.B., The
Temptations!!, Sam Cooke, Sinatra, David Ruffin, EarthWindFire,
BoyzIIMen, A Fine Frenzy, The National, Glen Hansard, Linkin Park,
Paramore, Florence + Machine, Susie Suh, Justin Hines, etc. Ed
Sheeran has been one of my favorite discoveries of 2012. I will say
that I usually like less than 50% of the songs on VH1 Countdown at
any time. I'm into just about any form of music. Weird things too,
like Celtic, bollywood, clog dancing, etc).
Two genres that I haven't been exposed to, and would love to get
more of is: Country and Classic Rock.
Food: Love all kinds of food... But I love Cereal, stuff is like
candy, but good for you. 3 things I hate to eat: Avocados, Oysters,
