Anyway! I value conversation on all levels in this ever so detached digital age. I'm also technically a transplant from Southern New Jersey, but I've been in the area for the better part of 10 years which means I do remember where things "used to be" that makes me a true Rhode Islander now, right?
I garden in the spring/summer though this year was kind of a bust. Baseball is my favorite of all the sports and I try to get to games when I can. I also love college basketball and NFL football. Main allegiances: Phillies, Red Sox, URI and A10 teams, and the Iggles for football.
And of course I engage in Netflix and couch potato-ing per the norm it seems. I just enjoy good company, quality entertainment and storytelling.
TV: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Ricky Gervais Show, Parks and Rec, Key and Peele, House of Cards, South Park, American Dad, Family Guy, Soap. Making a Murderer was insane. If you've seen it, you should message me because I cannot stop talking about it.
I tend to read historical non-fiction or non-fiction in general. Biographies and autobiographies. My Dad gave me a book called Legacy of Secrecy recently, so I'm just delving into that in addition to a book called Deep State by Peter Dale Scott. I also read a LOT of plays, my favorite is Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl. I also love King Lear, Much Ado About Nothing as my favorite Shakespeare's.
I listen to a lot of stuff my Dad listened to when I was growing up in addition to personal finds over the years. Lately its been Fleetwood Mac, The Black Keys, Ben Folds, Beck, Cake, Johnny Cash, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Junior Senior, and Simon and Garfunkel (maybe a little Whitney Houston, Madonna and Kelly...as in Clarkson. Kelly is my Beyonce). I'm always looking to be introduced to new bands or "artists".
Lasagna, Korean, Thai, I love trying new food...correction, I love food in general. I also really enjoy baking. I have a nice garden in my backyard now too which has been nice for making my own tomato sauce and pickles.
