I enjoy conversations while tossing back a couple pints. Even better, tossing back pints during game night. I... dig... game night! I am a big fan of board games. I have two of the greatest children ever and I adore them.
I am a good listener. On the other hand, I am also a storyteller. Some have called me a modern-day bard. An exaggeration on their part, but still a sentiment that makes me smile. I have been known to attract a crowd and entertain before I realize I'm doing it.
Mainly reference and history books.
TV shows: I don't really watch too much TV these days. Reality TV really annoys me, though.
I'm into most types of music. Classical, classic and Southern rock. A little hardcore, alternative, industrial... Jimmi Hendrix, The Doors, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Eric Clapton, BB King, The Beatles, Dead Can Dance, Enigma, The Chieftains, The Pogues, old Metallica... The list goes on.
Movies: Boondock Saints 1 and 2, all Monty Python, most comedies, SLC Punk, PCU, Animal House, What Dreams May Come, Jumanji, most flicks with Robin Williams, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Major League, Men At Work, and a lot of animated flicks... Obviously the influence of of my kids. :)
I do enjoy the theater, as well. My all time favorite production is Phantom of the Opera. It absolutely takes my breath away.
I'll get back to you about the last two.
