Neil Gaimann's American Gods
Paulo Cohelo's The Alchemist
Orson Scott Card's Ender Saga (though I don't agree with the author's controversial views on...well, look it up)
Haruki Murakami's The bird that winds up the world
Ian McEwan's Saturday and Solar
Chuck Palahniuk's Haunted (extremely messed up piece of fiction)
Anything goes! Love it when people try to tune me in to their favorite bands.
ELLIOT SMITH- Junk Bond Trader... Play it on my funeral!
The National- Conversation 16/Afraid of Everything
Love the scary and/or atmospheric movies.
Memento, The Grudge (don't be judgemental) and Solaris (yes, the George Clooney version) rank high. Walking dead and Dexter both rank extremely high on my "must watch"-list.
Love the japanese cuisine but other than that no real prefrences. Edible is a must.
*Dreams (unobtainable goals in life kinda dreams)
*Dreams (the random nightly occurance that don't make much of any sense)
*Cone of silence
Maybe I'll be running and taking in some sweet scenery or maybe...just maybe I'll be at a bar trying to have a conversation over ear-poundingly loud (but good) music.
That or the defualt "hanging with the friends" which can be followed by any of the above.
Also I tend not to look people in the eye when I talk to them- I tend to look through/behind/around the one I'm talking to. Seriously working on getting it fixed though. Nothing personal, just a form of shyness from my earlier years still residing within. [Update for 2010- now looking people straight in the eye when talking to them. Kept the earlier bit because removing it will mean coming up with something else in order to reach that 1000 word profile. Being practical here- not lazy ] //Note to the past-self that wrote this- don't worry mate, you got over it
Love meeting new folks, no matter who they are.
People spend far too little time talking to one another- between reading my profile and talking to me you'll definitely get more out of a 5 minute conversation than learning this entire presentation by heart. That probably goes for most people. Your friends perception of you is most likely different than your own perception of yourself. Plus points if you're down with chemistry and want to talk dirty about surfactants.
