I drink double bergamot Earl Grey and rye Manhattans. I'll watch football Saturday through Monday, then a Broadway musical Tuesday. I listen to Ella Fitzgerald and Nirvana. I read Pulitzer Prize-winners and romance novels. I can spend a Saturday ambling through the Whitney and/or bar crawling through Village dive bars. I like 1940s Tracy-Hepburn and 2000s Vince Vaughn Frat Pack comedies. I eat eleven-course tasting menus and dollar pizza. I want to travel everywhere, from winding cobblestoned city streets to wide-open deserts and plains.
- Literary analysis (super useful, that one)
- Making friends wherever I go and keeping in touch with them
- Planning trips
Books: Middlesex, Pride and Prejudice, The Sun Also Rises, The Portable Dorothy Parker. And so. many. more.
Movies: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Wedding Crashers, The Princess Bride, Midnight in Paris. I tend to see more independent films but re-watch lighter fare.
TV: The Newsroom, Friday Night Lights, Gilmore Girls.
Music: Current alternative like The Killers. 90's alternative/grunge like Nirvana and Veruca Salt. A smattering of everything else. And I won't start things off between us with a lie--I love Taylor Swift.
Food: Caesar salad, very rare steak, and French fries would be my last-meal menu, but I love trying new foods/cuisines/restaurants. Pizza and tasting menus: both excellent.
- New food to try
- Books, all the books
- Seeing a new place (preferably more than one) every year
- Theatres of all sorts
- Sunglasses (I have weirdly sensitive eyes)
And you know, how to find time to do the laundry.
