Favorite movies ... it's not Christmas without "It's a Wonderful Life" &/or "Miracle on 34th Street" (the original b&w version) ... enjoy some musicals like "1776" or favorites from childhood like "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" ... John Wayne movies ("Quiet Man" is a favorite) ... "The Princess Bride" -- a modern classic! ... of more recent vintage, I like a number of them but don't know I'd call them 'favorites' yet
Favorite (TV) shows ... "Bones" ... "Castle" ... "Doctor Who" ... "West Wing" ... the various 'Star Trek' series (though I'd put the original at the bottom of the list as far as one I'd want to watch again) ... "NCIS" ... that's probably enough
Favorite foods ... most meats including seafood ... Italian, indian ... chocolate (esp. the dark stuff!) ... prefer cake over pie (except for Key Lime - yum!)
Arts (theater, visual)
NPR >> yes, I know that's #7, but since I listen to it every day it really should be on the list (plus it connects to all the others!)
