I recently took a bread baking class which was fantastic. As indicated above, I love playing around in the kitchen, and experimental baking is the best (I just perfected my chocolate chip cookies)! But a little more formal instruction certainly doesn't go amiss.
Favorite TV shows include Doctor Who, Arrow, Grimm, Sherlock, and Misfits. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a show that I will always love. Anything Joss Whedon is wonderful to me!
A sample of my movie preferences would be The Hobbit (and the LotR Trilogy), Les Miserables, The Avengers, Boondock Saints, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Captain America, and Beauty and the Beast.
Food. Peanut butter is possibly the most delicious food ever. Hot sauce is mandatory on my grocery list. And anything that I can bake and then push onto everyone else is good in my book :-)
I like comics. At the moment I'm enjoying Green Arrow, Earth 2, and Avengers (plus a slew of others...).
Books or other reading materials... a pillow, hot sauce... my Nook.
