I enjoy: laughing loudly, books, Chardonnay, naps, people-watching, following tennis, bowling, 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. Sadly, CBS stopped working the other day . . .
Music: The Old 97's, fun., Arcade Fire, Gaga, Florence + the Machine, Mumford and Sons, The Shins, Weezer, and cheesy pop (sorry, it's true) . . . Update 2016: this is not all that up to date, but you get the idea.
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 . . .
