Alice in Wonderland, anything by Kurt Vonnegut
, Evelyn Waugh
(A Handful of
Dust <3 ), William Somerset
, or Gabriel Garcia Marquez
try to read serious books, but I have a huge soft spot for whimsy,
understatement, and frivolous verbosity. My bookshelf also has a
depressing amount of trashy fantasy novels... Little, Big (John
Crowley), The Magicians (Lev Grossman), and Jonathan Strange and
Mr. Norell (Susanna Clarke) are fantastic (pun acknowledged).
Anything by Wes
or Hayao Miyazaki
. I enjoy a good
visually-engaging movie and I'm by no means a film critic.
Arrested Development, Party Down, Mad Men, Downton Abbey, Bored to
Death, Supernatural, The Venture Brothers, Breaking Bad
Its probably just easier to link to my last.fm page (complete with
shameful username and photo):
As a preface: I absolutely love food. Thai is definitely my
favorite cuisine, shortly followed by mexican, korean, vietnamese
and sushi (japanese is alright, but sushi rocks). Spicy food is my
bread and butter. I love to cook, even if I'm financially
prohibited from making some of the more elaborate dishes I would
like to cook up.
Sadly, pittsburgh is not the best place for ethnic cuisine...
(I've gotten messages about this comment... If you know something I
don't, please feel free to share a good ethnic restuarant [please
note: I do not consider Polish cuisine ethnic])
