I can be a bit shy around new people, but usually I get along fine after a while. I enjoy traveling, reading, playing games of all kinds, and some sports (basketball and table tennis).
Recently I fell under the spell of Ken Follett's historical novels. I reread the first two (Pillars of the Earth, World without End). Who would have thought a story about a church builder could be this engrossing? The most recent one, Fall of Giants, set in the middle of World War I, is another excellent book. These books are character-driven, and the characters really come to life on the pages.
Movies: Action, Sci-fi, Fantasy. Such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Star Wars. Also, Ratatouille and Hana Yori Dango are personal favorites.
TV show: I'm hopelessly addicted to The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
Music: Mostly classical and J-Pop. Japanese artists that I like, in no particular order: Ootsuka Ai, Sukimaswitch, Mr. Chlidren, Kobukuro, Aiko, Aragaki Yui
Food: Most food on the planet. I love all of Japanese food except for nutto, which I can't stand. Thai, Chinese, Indian, Italian, and cafeteria food are all excellent.
