Even though I sometimes work long hours I do not categorize work as what I "do" with my life.
As an example, a book that left a big impression on me was: Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder.
Regarding Music, I actually like all kinds, depends on the mood, and I especially like Jazz.
Nowadays I have an inclination towards female singing-songwriters like Aimee Mann, Natalie Merchant, Tory Amos, Tracy Chapman, Diana Krall and Norah Jones.
I love watching movies, and I'm a sucker for happy endings. Comedies and Sci-Fi are my favorites, action is also ok, as long as there isn't too much violence.
I might be willing to watch foreign films as well.
Here are a few of my favorites: Hero, Joyeux Noël, Kill Bill, Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, Fight Club, Big Fish, The Blind side, As good as it gets, Finding Neverland, Good Will Hunting.
Food: Mostly Italian: Pasta, Lasagna, Pizza; Scrambled eggs; Chocolate.
I'm a vegetarian (u don't have to be).
