I enjoy: laughing loudly, books, naps, people-watching, following tennis, outdoor seating at restaurants and bars, walking aimlessly around new neighborhoods, beaches, chai tea lattes, travel, and ironing. Seriously.
I lived in Brooklyn for quite awhile but moved back to Chicago a few years ago. I'm happy to be here.
I also read a lot of young adult lit. It's a necessary part of my job, but I do love it. You will often find me in the teen section of Barnes and Noble. I recently read The Scorpio Races, and I thought it was beautiful.
Movies: "Lost in Translation," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Adventureland," "Juno," "Brokeback Mountain," "Breakfast at Tiffany's," "Reality Bites," "Out of Sight," "Zoolander," "Before Sunset," "Almost Famous," "The Royal Tenenbaums," "You've Got Mail," "Pieces of April," "Bring It On," and guilty pleasures galore
TV: I must say, I like some really bad TV, but I prefer escapism when watching television. I don't have cable, but you can still watch a ton of TV with an antenna and a Roku.
Music: Anything with a catchy hook. My tastes aren't very sophisticated. Top 40 poppy type stuff, mostly. Anything I can sing at the top of my lungs while driving to and from work. I've seen Taylor Swift multiple times in concert, if that drives home my point. And yes, I loved every second of it.
Food: Indian, Thai, Mexican, Italian, brunch. I enjoy most food.
My tastes run the gamut. High brow and very, very base. We probably have some common faves.
Also, I generally hate this question . . .
