I am quirky, curvy, and fabulous
Books-- Neil Gaiman, Madeleine L'Engle, JRR Tolkien are of course big ones. Philip Pullman! Lloyd Alexander! George Eliot! I have too many favorite books to list in this ridiculous little box. Just talk to me about it.
(B) Howl's Moving Castle (anything by Miyazaki), The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, LOTR, Roman Holiday, Shadowlands, Princess Bride, Amelie (but mostly for the cinematography and her apartment), The Best of Youth. I really loved the movie "Once".
I just saw The King's Speech and it is AWESOME. I had a speech impediment as a kid, and I got into speech in HS to get over my impediment and my debilitating fear of speaking in front of people, so I was totally picking up what that movie was putting down. It instantly became one of my favorite movies.
C)Anything that's not obnoxious pop or obnoxious country. I listen to the radio (NPR) in the morning and the Current at work. I get a lot of new music from other people. Music I'm liking right now off the top of my head: Bright Eyes / Conor Oberst, Rogue Valley / Chris Koza, Beirut, She & Him, Adele, BEN FOLDS, TORI AMOS (I'm a forever fan-- she's friends with Neil Gaiman, and they are both guests at my fantasy dinner party), Imogen Heap, the Once Soundtrack, Stars (sometimes)...I like me some folky acoustic guitar. And people who can play piano. I actually wish I could get a piano, just to lure pianists over to my house to play for me. Alas, I don't have a spacious mansion. :(
D) I was a vegetarian for 4 years, but I now I am a meat eater once more. I don't eat meat that often, though, but that's mostly because I'm poor. I roast a pretty fantastic chicken (the key is putting butter and herbs under the skin and a cut-up lemon in the cavity). My cooking is very homey Italian/French comfort food. I also like to bake pies, and I'd like to make my own bread. For eating out I REALLY LOVE sushi.
UPDATE: I can bake my own bread now, and I do, every month or so! It's not as hard as everyone makes it out to be.
Basically, I like everything. Now that I'm not a vegetarian anymore, I will pretty much eat anything once. yay Adventure!
....I did get another iPod though (grrr).
UPDATE: And I got another computer. (sigh)
Update the Second: And now I have an iPhone! My word.
I also spend a lot of time thinking of snippets of story and dreamy things like that. Then I have to make something out of them. But sometimes I don't, and they go away. This makes me sad. :(
Right now also I'm thinking about when to start taking bellydancing lessons.
