- Biology and Chemistry
I spell many things the British way: colour, theatre, etc. I had too many English people in my life during my formative years to have not picked it (and the rare break into an accent) up.
I ask "Why?" constantly. I always want to know how EVERYTHING works.
My all time favorite movie is The Princess Bride, and I also loved the Harry Potter Movies, even if books are better.
I also like anime (Japanese animation), but I do not automatically like everything Japanese. There is some utter crap out there, and there are also plenty of awesome things that come from other parts of the world.
Books are my true love, however. I enjoy Harry Potter, The Name of the Wind, and works by AnneMcCaffrey, Tara K. Harper, Simon R. Green (fantastic macabre fantasy writer), Mercedes Lackey, and similar authours.
As far as food goes, I am not very picky. I think of food as more of a necessity than anything else. Frankly, it is generally a time-waster. When I do feel the need to eat something specific, though, I love seafood, Thai, Creole, and other foods with bold flavours and spices. I am not a fan of bland foods. I tend to eat a lot of vegetarian dishes as opposed to meat, but I am not someone who opposes eating meat. I do prefer to know where my meat comes from, as factory farming does not sit well with me. I avoid processed meats when possible, too. I do not want to even think of all the nasty crap in there.
I'm a total xenophile, and I really enjoy things from various other cultures. I'm up for trying most anything. Hell, I've eaten roasted crickets and mealworms before. I tend to like the novel, so foods I have never tried (especially if they are spicy or otherwise very flavourful!) are exciting.
