I love reading. John Irving is my favorite. I've probably read more
Stephen King then any other author but I'm pretty sure he's written
more then most authors. The longest book I've read may well be
Mitchener's Hawaii. I enjoy good mysteries, and occasionally bad
ones. I've liked most of the non-fiction I've read but when they
are bad, they are really bad. So bad I have blocked them out it
seems. Yes, I read Twilight, but I did not enjoy it, at least not
as much as my friends did. I swear.
I'm a big fan of the whole movie going experience. My favorite
movie is Terminator 2, I still can't say why, but it is. I'm open
to any movie but these are some of my favorites: The Big Lebowski,
Contact, Harold and Maude, Star Trek, The English Patient,
Braveheart, War of the Roses, Fight Club, Young Frankenstein, To
Kill a Mockingbird. I've laughed at and thoroughly enjoyed plenty
of romantic comedies, foreign and independent films just as much as
the blockbusters I've been to see in the theater.
I haven't had cable tv in years. I am not a sitcom fan, I don't
think I have been since I watched reruns of Three's Company as a
kid. I have been sucked into some shows when I could binge on the
whole season thanks to Netflix and DVD's. A few of the ones I've
watched recently are: House, Star Trek, Northern Exposure, The X
Files, Farscape - there are more I'm sure. I miss Nova, Nature,
Mythbusters, several Food network shows, Mad Men and some of the
food related reality shows.
I enjoy music and it's almost always playing around here but I'm a
lazy fan. I don't know the name to every Grateful Dead song but I
am pretty sure I own at least one version of most of them. I've
recently discovered that I know the lyrics to an amazing number of
songs by 60's and 70's rock bands. I like everything from Bill
Monroe to Metallica.
Cooking is something I enjoy but I have to admit I don't enjoy it
as much as eating a great meal someone else has prepared. I can't
think of a type of food I've tried and hands down don't like. I do
my best to eat healthy, sustainable, local and cruelty free but I
will not let that stand in the way of joining the fun at a cookout.
