I think my friends would say that I am funny, or perhaps they are just laughing at my accent. In any case, comedy and laughter are important to me.
My other passion is surfing. I have been a surfer all my life and grew up at the beach, surfing with my dad and my sisters. I couldn't live without surfing, it is a constant source of joy and has taken me all over the world.
Anyway, I just decided to give this site a whirl as a way to meet some new people. Hope it works!
My all time favorite film is probably Lost In Translation. I guess I like a lot of films that you would not describe as "feel good". Pan's Labyrinth and more recently Four Lions and Melancholia.
I keep up with a lot of British shows, comedy mostly (anything by Armando Iannucci or Christopher Morris, for example. The Office, Alan Partridge, The Thick Of It etc). Also love U.S. comedy and drama - Louie and South Park for example. Breaking Bad is probably my all time favorite non-comedy show. I also surprised myself by really loving Battlestar Galactica.
I grew up listening to Bay area punk - Rancid, NOFX, that sort of thing (it went with the 90s surfing and skating territory...). Still love those bands but now I really do listen to everything. My Pandora station list couldn't be more random. I went to the symphony last weekend.
Food...Thai is my favorite I think. Curries, anything Asian. Sushi. Indian. That's one thing I really love about living here and miss when I'm away - so many great places to eat in San Francisco.
