Also, I really need to say that my default picture is NOT a selfie.
I also walk really quickly.
I just reached my goal of finishing 100 books in 2012! I love biographies, books about my pet subjects (mainly, Alaska, American women's history, pioneers, and Harry Truman) and, yes, chick-lit. Whatever. I also read academic articles for fun.
As you can tell by my username, Ghostbusters is one of my favorite movies. I am definitely NOT a film snob; in fact, I can't even remember the last film I saw in theatres. My very favorite, watch-this-and-everything-will-be-okay movie is The Wedding Singer.
I really dislike when people use not watching TV as a way of looking down on others. I have a penchant for adult cartoons, especially Archer and Metalocalypse (Nathan Explosion is pretty much my dream man). The occasional mindless reality show is okay as well.
As far as music goes, I grew up listening to oldies. Stuff from the 50s and early 60s is THE BEST. Other than that, I love everything from alternative to misogynist hip-hop to country to gimmicky South African techno.
Finally, I love to eat. I don't care what kind of food it is. My ability to put it away is kind of embarrassing. Like, if someone from another country saw me eating, they would form a negative lasting impression of all Americans right there.
