(Also: lots of books, music, yoga, arts & crafts, adventures, and photography.)
I have lost 100 lbs, and am continuing, because being active and healthy makes me happy.

Cosmos. The Simpsons, Daily Show, Vice, Real Time, Colbert, Wilfred, Chappelle’s Show, SNL, Fruits Basket, Jeopardy, Taboo, Science channel shows, and standup specials. I also thoroughly LOVE watching old cartoons and kids shows, especially when I've been smoking. Haven't tried watching "Bobby's World" or "Magic School Bus" as an adult while high? You probably should, it's way awesome. Oh, and I do a fantastic impression of the chicken cluck end theme from Robot Chicken.
I love good music, and I even like some bad music. These facts = nearly impossible to make any list of favorite music anywhere near “short”. This being said, I listen to a lot of alternative, world music, blues, oldies, and old school/underground hip-hop. Also, my Pandora has a Bluegrass station that gets quite a bit of play. You've been warned.
I have a deep appreciation for good food; Thai, Mexican, Vietnamese, Mediterranean, Italian, and Indian are weaknesses. Beyond that, veggies.
