How I came to live in Lawrence
I don't. Just have family there
Music of all kinds except gangsta rap and metal. Literature, Wine, dining, traveling. Biking, blogging, swimming and the arts in general
Jazz, classical, rock, Latin --- pretty much everything under the sun with the exception of Gangsta Rap and metal.
I read a LOT. Couldn't make a real list
Favorite TV shows
Not much of a TV fan, really. Watch the occasional episode of CSI-NY or CSI-Miami and Law And Order
BIG movie fan. Couldn't really make a comprehensive list. Love the classics
