Having fun. I have always had a kind of class clown mentality and see life as pretty absurd. So I love to laugh.
Anything by Edgar Allen Poe. F Scott Fitzgerald. I think that at heart we are all reaching across the water toward the green light. I most recently have been reading Gary Sheigtengardt and have developed a kind of literary crush on him. But I tend to devour books. So I will pick up literally anything and give it a go.
Cheezy comedies of any kind. The more lowbrow the better. I have yet to see a Will Ferrell film that i havent laughed in. I also like off the wall humor Like Wes Anderson and of course Woody Allen.
I like charming French films like Amelie and other arthouse films like Betty Blue.
I grew up watching british comedies like Black adder, the young ones and the goodies. I miss those days of telly. But my TV heart will always belong to Homer J Simpson.
All kinds of music. I know that this is a cliched answer but it is true. Really. In terms of Rock I like bands like The Black Keys and The heavy. I grew up with Brit Pop, grunge and foul mouthed Gangsta rap. If anything the ridiculousness of a middle class white girl from a town like Adelaide listening to F**K the police really appeals to my sense of irony more now than ever before and I still get a guilty pleasure kick out this genre.
I like Jazz as well and sometimes think that Peggy lee's Is that all there is kind of sums up life for me.
I am not a pinickity eater. I try to eat healthily overall but tend to be adventurous. I don't mind a bit of spice. I love the china town section of Adelide and tend to really get into the hole in the wall Asian restaurants there.
