I'm not a bad cook either, and I'm always looking to grow that too.
Movies: Star Wars (in order of preference: Empire, Jedi, Hope, Sith, Phantom Menace, Clones is dead last), Knocked Up, Forgetting Sara Marshall, Pineapple Express, Austin Powers, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, V for Vendetta, X-Men, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The Depated, Slumdog Millionaire, The Hurt Locker, The Incredibles is my favorite Pixar movie, and my nephew has convinced me that Cars is good too.
TV: Mythbusters, 24, Chuck, 30 Rock, Top Chef, Scrubs, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, Tosh.O, Futurama, The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, True Blood, Entourage, Boardwalk Empire, Bored to Death, Louie, Wilfred, Game of Thrones, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Jeopardy, Cash Cab, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and practically everything on the Food Network or the Cooking Channel.
Music: The Beatles, The Clash and The Who are bands that I will probably never tire of. Other favorites include Queen, Green Day, Goo Goo Dolls, Daft Punk, Girl Talk, Beyonce, Jay Z, T.I, Justin Timberlake, Jason Derulo, K'Naan, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Thermals, Hot Chip, Stars, Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, Frightened Rabbit, Mumford and Sons. And while technically not music, I can't get enough of NPR shows. At the moment I listen to them more than music.
Food: Cajun-Creole, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Italian, British Pub food, American comfort food and of course, Jewish American comfort food, including Brisket, latkes and chicken noodle and matzo ball soup. I do not keep kosher: pork is my very close friend and my second favorite meat behind chicken. I've eaten Alligator, Snake, Shark, Eel, a lot of game and most offal. I love to experiment with food all of the time. It's a great way to get to know people and cultures and traditions.
A Private Room
I wonder who OKCupid shows under "Similar users" when you come to my profile.
Sadly, those fun Friday nights have been on hiatus while I've been in Grad School, and have been replaced with many Friday's working at school, listening to NPR podcasts and XM Radio.
No one should get that reference, and that is my curse.
