The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm a lot older than I look.
That I laugh a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Little Big Man (the movie), Love and Other Drugs, Les Miserable (the book), Huckleberry Finn, Oliver (the book), A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (it should go without saying, the book), Isaac Asimov (probably most of what he's written) and anything Mark Twain and Dickens and Victor Hugo has written. I can't remember the name of the novel (really a thought experiment) that sought to perceive a world with four dimensions by using the analogy of trying to explain our world of three dimensions to a world of two (Flatland, OK that's the name) to Flatlanders (3 dimensions, that's impossible!) - probably the most creative book I've ever read (in a top bunk in a WWII tent via flashlight at Boy Scout camp.)

Alvin Ailey, the Beatles, Nickelback, Hair!, Car 54 Where Are You?, Up!, ET, Scandal, Dancing with the Stars, Monk, Doc Martin, Stevie Wonder, Walden, Gandhi (the philosophy), The New York Times, The Catholic Worker (Dorothy Day), the Autobiography of Malcome X and anything with lemon in it. How's that for range?!

For movies, anything with Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracey, Sidney Poitier (especially Lillies of the Field), Sandra Bullock, Dustin Hoffman, and many others. The Lord of the Rings (the book, and the amazing adaptation for the movie) and the Hobbit (book and upcoming movie).
The six things I could never do without
OK, this will be a lot like everyone else's: friends, family, Christianity/religion (I guess I haven't seen this), struggling for a better world, relaxation, and the ability to read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making the world a better place, reforming healthcare, how to get over Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, research and advocacy (OK, I let it out of the box - superficial people can all leave now), what hypocritical extremists the Republicans have become and how to defeat their refusal to compromise (GO OBAMA!) Defeating the extremist NRA.
On a typical Friday night I am
Varies, usually at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That this is the dumbest question on here, if it's private, why would anyone put it online? You should just drop this question and ask something useful, like what your philosophy of life is.
(I'm speaking to you, OK Cupid!)

Oh, I'm glad you asked. My philosophy of life is "first, do no harm" - that means, at a minimum, to try not to kill anybody and don't buy firearms for alleged self-defense (you're twice as likely to die a violent death if you own a handgun). Practice nonviolence and the golden rule. Don't denigrate people who are less fortunate that you. Don't join extremist groups that would harm the poor.
