Learning how to appreciate the news.
tv: arrested development, parks and rec, jersey shore, food network shows (pretty much all of them), just about anything on travel channel
books: empire falls, anything by john irving (esp World According to Garp and Hotel New Hampshire), the life of pi; i love to read but i forget everything about the book almost immediately so the only things i remember are ones ive read multiple times. this is a terrible trait by the way.
music: fleetwood mac, the strokes, the decemberists, deathcab for cutie, the shins, mumford and sons, phoenix, postal service....pretty open minded
2. travel or at least the prospect of it
3. brunettes and yoga pants, not necessarily together but it never hurts
4. quotes and nicknames
5. good pair of running shoes
Or a jelly roll store.
