I'm bad at favorites, so these are just a few examples that have
caught my attention recently.
Books -- Connie Willis, Ruth Reichl, China Miéville (I love Perdido
Street Station and Un Lun Dun, but I'm not sure that I really get
Iron Council), and I keep meaning to start the collected stories of
Television -- I follow America's Next Top Model, but only every few
seasons. Watching Battle Star Galactica on Netflix, and probably
re-watching Veronica Mars again soon. I love Ricky Gervais, but I
think the NBC Office is better.
Music -- Cracker, The Great Crusades, Martin Denny, The
Food -- You name it. I'm fond of barbecue (Korean, Oakland, or
carne asada) and a good Dungeness crab, but I'm no stranger to
tabouleh and masala dosa. I love cooking and eating good food. I'd
like to open a restaurant when this whole internet thing blows
over, but I'm probably too much of a dilettante to follow through.
