I love Thai, Mexican, Italian, and good old American the most. I always willing to try different styles of cooking too.
I am a big fan of all kinds of music. Rock, Metal, Acoustic, Alternative, Jazz, and Classical to give a good sense of the variety I enjoy. So anywhere from Lindsey Stirling to Metallica I suppose. Although Celtic music holds a special place in my heart.
I have not had time to watch that much TV but I love the West Wing, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Marco Polo and Dr. Who. I also LOVED Scrubs, Dr. Cox is my hero. I also enjoy adultswim shows like The Venture Bros and other comedies like Archer and Futurama. I'm also a fan of some anime like Cowboy Bebop and Fullmetal Alchemist.
There are far too many to list here. And of course the type of movie that I enjoy watching will be suitable to the kind of day it is. I think my favorite genre is psychological thrillers or mysteries. The genre that I dislike the most is gore-fest horror movies. I could go on and on talking about movies with someone where we dissect plot elements and character motivations.
Off the top of my head some of my favorite movies are Serenity, Lord of the Rings, The Martian, Inception, The Usual Suspects, The Princess Bride (Inigo Montoya is everything I want to be in life) and The Great Escape
I am a HUGE bookworm. It would be quicker to list my favorite authors than to name the books: Jim Butcher, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, and George R. R. Martin. Recently I have developed an interest in older novels and have started to read books by Issac Asimov and Richard Feyman. I am a big fan of science fiction and high fantasy novels. This is another topic that I would enjoy discussing for hours with fellow fan. I also read a bit outside those genres like The Demon-Haunted World by Carl Sagan. Currently listening to an audio book of "My Early Life" by Winston Churchill. Also have lately been reading a lot of history dealing with WWI. How much the world changed because of it is almost endless in scope and is something I enjoy discussing with my friends.
- Family that looks out for you
- A book series to dive into and devour
- The best Chicago food (Lou Malnati's, Chicago style hotdogs, Al's Italian Beef, Kuma's Corner)
- Having the opportunities to learn something new constantly
- Proudly being a nerd with my friends. Strategy games, card games, psychological games abound. Basically if the game involves out thinking your friends in amusing ways it is likely we play it.
