I love food and I love making food for people I love. I'll try
anything once, usually twice. I host a monthly
choose-your-own-adventure supper club and it's really fun.
Music: I can't pin my tastes down to any particular style or genre.
I really only listen to NPR and KDHX, so I have no idea what's
supposed to be cool right now and I am fully aware that makes me
sound like an asshole. I don't trust anyone who can sit still while
listening to James Brown.
I love to read. Sometimes I have mini panic attacks because there
are so many books and so little time. I can't pick a favorite,
ever. I recently joined a YA book club and that's neat. It's not a
book, but I love the Utne Reader. I really enjoyed the Song of Ice
and Fire series and will hardcore nerd-out about it if you want.
Harry Potter always and forever and ever amen. I enjoy a lot of
non-fiction, too. Right now I'm reading some essays on Catholic
theology from a feminist prospective. Biographies are fascinating.
My favorite so far has been Priscilla Presley.
There is a pretty good chance I haven't seen most of the movies you
consider awesome, so don't be surprised when I say "oh, I haven't
seen that, but I'd love to." Things that come to mind: Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Closer, Almost Famous, Romeo +
Juliet, Stop Making Sense, Pan's Labyrinth, The Departed, Star Wars
IV-VI, Francis Ha, O Brother Where Art Thou, Heathers, Gone with
I don't have cable and haven't for many years, but I really loved
The Food Network and HGTV. I really enjoy Game of Thrones, The
Walking Dead, The X Files, OITNB, House of Cards, and American
Horror Story. Oh, I am a dedicated member of the Leslie Knope fan
club. If it's a political or crime drama, I'll probably like it.
