What I Like

Favorite Books

Life changers: Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, The Miracle of Mindfulness, Weetzie Bat
Recent Loves: various young adult trilogies that have enjoyed blockbuster success, screenplays for movies that will never be made, business books
Currently: Tipping the Velvet (*fans self*)

Favorite Movies

Spy movies and nature documentaries. Pee Wee Herman movies. Anything at the drive-in or in a dark theater all to myself. Jaws. I recently saw Die Hard for the first time and it was the best movie I’ve ever seen. I generally avoid movies that are too sad, too funny or too scary, but I like movies best when they’re a little of all three.

Favorite TV Shows

All things funny, sad, and true. Also cop shows. Sherlock, Downton Abbey, Luther, Mad Men, Parks & Rec, The Wire and both versions of The Office. I’m moderately embarrassed to say that I’m obsessed with my first reality show: Whodunit on ABC. It’s so insane, you guys. I send my friend Anna like 50 texts an episode.

Favorite Music

Hip hop, bloops and bleeps, girls with banjos, twangy guitars. Horn sections. All things very lush or very spare. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Justin Timberlake and weird bands from Eurovision. Also, Mariah Carey’s “Fantasy” is a perfect song and if you don’t agree, listen to it again. Oh and I really like listening to Taylor Swift songs and pretending that she’s singing to a girl. You should try it sometime.

Favorite Sandwich

Turkey, green apple, sharp white cheddar, curry powder, mayo – just trust me on this.
