Films by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Wong Kar Wai, and Ang Lee - Fallen Angels makes my heart swell, Lust/Caution rips it out. Most recently, my favorites have been Birdman and Whiplash.
Food - Cooking is the highlight of my day. I have a great big plate of fresh fruit every night for dessert. I exercise vigorously -- daily -- so I can eat whatever. Out The Door is my recent favorite restaurant, though I don't eat out much. I'd rather cook.
No drugs or alcohol -- not because I'm making a point of it, but because I have little inclination. A sip of wine is fine, but that's about it. Alcoholics and otherwise druggies make me uncomfortable. While I love coffee, I've been undergoing an experiment to see how I do without. I've gone without coffee for >23 weeks now, and reduced my caffeine intake to almost none -- I can say that there have been benefits, though I'm due to relapse.
I was raised on The Cure and punk rock. More in general, my tastes, so I'm told, tend to be strange. Mostly, music comes to me via Pandora.
When someone asks what my favorite book is, I have to ask which genre. These days I'm spending time on friends' books while they spend time on mine. Most recent reads: South of the Border, West of the Sun, Murakami; Consumed, Cronenberg; the latest William Gibson; a couple by Jack Womack -- second time through Random Acts... and a few others waiting for me on reserve at SFPL.
Coffee (actually, I've proven I can do without this).
A good sweat, at least once a day.
You're creative and proactive -- inspire me, I'll inspire you.
And... you're comfortable in your skin, and don't try to be adorable -- trying to be adorable is like justifying would-be humor in a dull joke. Humor should come naturally, and so should adoration.
And... you're sensible enough to wear comfortable shoes.
And... You're not crazy. Unusual/abnormal is fine, just not crazy. I've had enough crazy. Weird-crazy, scary-crazy. Enough!
