I am working on enjoying the small things every day.
TV: I watch at least an hour of news a day, usually MSNBC or something else lefty. I'm currently digging Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Flash, Arrow, BoJack Horseman, Orange is the New Black, Fresh off the Boat, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Better Call Saul, American Horror Story, Rick and Morty, and Gotham. I miss old shows, especially Aaron Sorkin series, NBC sitcoms, and the dramas everyone likes (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and the like).
Movies: My taste is pretty broad, and I love a lot of different movies. As long as there is a good story that is told well, I'll keep going back to it. Some favorites: As Good as it Gets, Casablanca, Groundhog Day, The Life Aquatic, Almost Famous to name a few.
Music: I like just about anything. I sang in a traveling choir as a kid, I can sort of play several instruments, and I was in a punk band with my friends. I work to trashy electronic music and mash-up. I get nostalgic to 90s alt-rock. I drive to classic rock and pop. I love dinner and drinks to jazz standards, big band, and bossanova.
Food: I like to try new things, everything from fine dining to street food. I also love to cook. I'm looking forward to checking out the fair for the first time in a few years. My other food adventures this summer have included a tour of Philadelphia's cheesesteak establishments, sharing the joy of Taiwanese soup dumplings, and the late night eats of the greater Los Angeles area.
A good skillet and knife for cooking
A quality pair of durable headphones
A fan for white noise and breeze while sleeping
What it means/how to ethically live a good life.
What food to make with the people I enjoy spending time with.
If you think you'd like some combination of my heart, brains, and quirks.
You want to watch Stranger Things with some one.
