The favourite things grabbing my attention and love right now are
usually on my tumblr: verylisa.tumblr.com
Books: I'll latch onto a topic and read a pile of non-fiction books
about it for a while, then move on to the next topic. Currently
reading lots of books about sustainable tiny homes, survival in
extreme situations, fat-related issues, drawing and painting,
simple living, and Buddhism. Ask me next month and it will be
something else. Favourite authors include Terry Pratchett, LM
Montgomery, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Suzanne Collins, Patrick
O'Brian, PG Wodehouse, Mark Twain. I'm also reading a lot of Marvel
comics lately, especially the X books.
Movies: Ridiculous disaster movies like 2012 and The Day After
Tomorrow. Most fantasy and sci-fi stuff. Anything with hobbits
and/or giant robots. Movies based on Marvel universe comics.
Shows: Doctor Who, RuPaul's Drag Race, most things by Joss Whedon
and/or Steven Moffat and/or Simon Pegg & Nick Frost, Better Off
Ted, The IT Crowd, Xena Warrior Princess ... generally things that
are dorky and fun and sometimes a bit dark.
Music: All genres. Favourite artists include Jonathan Coulton,
Winnie Coopers, Stan Rogers, Candye Kane, Billy Bragg, Fleetwood
Mac, Gaelic Storm.
Food: I don't much like cooking, so my favourite meal is one that
someone else cooks for me. If pancakes were a nutritionally
complete food I might be tempted to eat them at every meal.
