Worth the effort.
Figuring things - and people - out.
Hugging and kissing
Making chocolate chip cookies
hanging out on a lazy day. :)
Books include the standard: Catcher In the Rye; To Kill a Mockingbird, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Little Prince; and perhaps less conventionally: Listen, Little Man by Wilhelm Reich; To Russia With Fries by George Cohon and Democracy in America by Alexis de Toqueville. I also loved Tina Fey's "BossyPants", many of David Sedaris' work, Brendan Gill's "Here at the New Yorker" and many, many more. :)
Movies: Again! Where do I begin! Goodfellas; Parenthood, Superman; Get Real, Beautiful Thing, Billy Elliot, Babette's Feast Groundhog Day and so many more!
Shows: Again... where to begin! Billy Elliot, Pride and Prejudice, Jersey Boys, Avenue Q, Wicked (I'm kind of cliche) as the tip of the iceberg and ballet!
Unless they mean TV shows: Breaking Bad; Six Feet Under; Arrested Development; Archer; Everwood and gilmore girls (I am gay, after all); Sex and the City (ditto); Everybody Loves Raymond; Action and "Beggars and Choosers".
Music: C'mon!! MOR (Middle of the road) I love Carly Simon, Carole King, The Carpenters, I love Jazz, classical, rock, blues. Black female singers, for some reason always "filled" my sould with joy; I don't know why: Aretha, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle. Anyway... I love music. Not so much the hip-hop. yolo and "rap" usually irritates me: Too angry and jilted.
Food! Love it! I'm not a great cook and I can be set in my ways sometimes, but I'm usually very open to new food experiences, food "stylings" and nutrition. I'm a "bad" eater, though, left on my own.
I have been spending more time lately on the idea of a great guy to build a life with. That'd be nice. :)
