Oh, and I love, love, love college football...and NPR.
Oh and I tell really great stories and I am great for, as a friend once termed it, "doling out wise counsel."
What's really funny about this is, in truth, I'm a Type A personality cleverly disguised as a Type B personality.
Book: Some People, Some Other Place by J. California Cooper (anything by her really or Toni Morrison), Memoirs of a Geisha, and I'm really into historical fiction (Outlander series), and most recently, audio books
Movie(s): Where the Heart Is (random, I know), Fools Rush In, Anchorman, Wedding Crashers, Love Actually...but my absolute favorite is Finding Nemo (averts gaze).
And my current favorite tv shows: Community (it's sooo funny), Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Workaholics, American Dad, Arrested Development (classic), The League, and Fringe...and by honorable mention in the guilty pleasures category: Toddlers and Tiaras
Music: Folksy-Soul (Adele, Corinne Bailey Rae, Nina Simone) Jazz, Hip Hop, the Black Keys, A Fine Frenzy, Kings of Leon, The Drums, Etta James ('Trust in Me' is one of my favorites of hers) Donny Hathaway, Otis Redding, Bad Rabbits
Food: sushi, fried catfish, a good stew with bread, clementines
2. A true friend
3. Carmex (dry lips can keep me up at night)
4. My phone (access to information at any moment)
5. Fresh fruit (here's looking at you, pineapple)
6. Books (I'm comfortable enough to admit, that as a child I was painfully shy and my books were my only friends. I've outgrown my shyness, and now maintain healthy human relationships, but once a friend, always a friend.)
