Books: I'm illiterate. Seriously, I don't read. Oh wait, that's
just easily bored. Ok, this is the only one I give a single favorite on - "Alas, Babylon" - this is the last book I read cover to cover...in 10th grade...over 14 years ago. In fact, I was so interested in this book, I read ahead of the rest of the class. My English teacher was mad because I wasn't following along with the class.
Movies: The Beach, Catch Me If You Can, The Hunt For Red October, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Back to the Future (1,2,3), The Butterfly Effect, Priscilla Queen of The Desert, Gone in 60 Seconds, The Italian Job, Beetlejuice, Trick...and many, MANY more...

This is actually a great topic for conversation
Food: Kolaches...I've actually had them shipped to me when I
couldn't get them locally. Also, Prosciutto Di Parma -- and cream sauces, I really like cream sauces - Do you think this is perverse?
Communication with the world not immediately around me - ideally, this is in the form of a computer with reliable internet access, but can also take the form of telephone or interactive TV. I'd just go crazy if I had to sit in my apartment alone and do nothing all day.
My Blistex - If I was given an ultimatum that I had to give up Blistex or alcohol, it would be alcohol, but don't get any ideas... unless you're a doctor and can prove that one or the other will seriously diminish my quality of life.
Love and Affection - I'm just not sure how I would cope in a post-apocalyptic world where no one touched anyone else for fear of contamination and no one loved another for fear they would lose that person or couldn't trust them.
Comedy - 'Listen, my philosophy is this: If you don't have a good sense of humor, you're better off dead!' -- If you know where this quote is from, then you know one of my all-time favorite movies
Fuel - If you were to trace everything you use and do in your modern daily life back to it's beginning, at some point, it would all break down without some type of fuel.
