I'm a Tampa native, and fully devoted Bucs fan! They've been through so many changes lately, I have no clue what to expect from them this season, but I still love my team. I'm essentially a dork, so I like reading, playing games, trying new restaurants, watching drag queens, and other equally lame stuff. ;-) Otherwise, I'm the type of person that functions well in a professional setting, but is always on the lookout for something to laugh at.
As a by-product of my constant thinking, I suppose I'm a passable source of random information and new perspectives on problems.
To be more specific, I love nearly anything by Louisa May Allcott (classic lit) and I've read a ton of Piers Anthony (Fantasy). One of my top picks for historical fiction would be "The Devil's Arithmetic" by Jane Yolen. Dystopias such as "Brave New World" and "The Giver" are great reads too. An excellent book that I recommend to nearly everyone I encounter is "The Eight" by Katherine Neville. For all of you who liked "The Da Vinci Code", I found the plot to be more engaging, though it definitely dates itself as being a product of the 70s. "The Eight" partially takes place in the 70s, and partially in the 1790s. The story is about a 200 year search for... well, for something (don't want to ruin it!) It involves, history, science, music, astrology, mystery, alchemy, chess, and about a dozen historical figures. There's even a bit of violence and romance tossed in too!
I know I talked a ton about books, but I LOVE reading. I'll be brief with the rest.
TV Shows:I'm not much of a TV watcher, but I do like RuPaul's Drag Race, the History Channel, and home shows.
Music: Nearly anything but Techno
Food: Love seafood (except squid & octopus), Korean, Japanese, Soul Food -- I'll try most other things though.
