My dog is the love of my life, block-headed though he may be. He's big and dumb and sweet and wonderful. I'm the type of person who feels about their dog the way most people feel about their children. I also have three cats, who I adore.
I'm a nerd, but not academically. I love fantasy and sci fi stuff. I play/have played a few video games. I suck at console games, but I wish I was better at them. I'm a former WoW addict (two years sober). One of these days I'll sit down and play Skyrim (as of yet, I've only watched other people play).
I love to sew and craft. I like making clothes and creating fun ways to personalize my home (as much as I can, that is, being a renter). I can't wait til I have my own home and can go to town with DIY projects.
I'm not very outdoorsy or athletic, but I do enjoy walks and visiting parks like Letchworth or Stonybrook. I'd love to get my dog well enough trained to go walking on the trails there, with his backpack on. (Yes, my dog has his own backpack.)
I don't make it to the movie theater a lot, so I tend to be behind on the recent films, but some of my favorites include The Princess Bride, Annie Hall, Same Time Next Year, Stranger Than Fiction, Serenity, Secretary, the Indiana Jones movies, the Back to the Future trilogy, most of the Star Wars films, Disney classics, and lots more.
These days, I tend to prefer TV over movies (they aren't calling this the golden age for television for nothing!) and I try and keep up with some current shows as well as repeatedly watch plenty of older ones. My favorites include How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke Girls, Scrubs, Friends, Futurama, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Torchwood, Game of Thrones, Boy Meets World, Rome, Firefly, The League, Once Upon a Time, and plenty of others.
I tend to have a very varied taste in music, so I'll just list a few favorites here. I like a lot of different genres and artists, so I'll just make this list short. Some of my favorites are The Used, Say Anything, Motion City Soundtrack, Maroon 5, and Jason Mraz, but I won't waste your time going on and on.
While I do try to have an open mind when it comes to books, movies, music, and tv, I won't lie when I say there are some things I simply can't stand. (Twilight, True Blood, ICP, and most stupid, brainless comedies, to name a few.)
As for food, I won't lie, I am often a picky eater. I think that's one of the reasons I love cooking so much; I can make food just the way I like it. As a rule, I'm a big fan of fish, but not shellfish, flavored pastas, and fresh bread is definitely my favorite thing. I am absolutely nothing even close to a vegetarian. :)
