1. I read for English A-level (UK post 16) I like Iain Banks' 'The Wasp Factory' & Annie Proulx's 'The Shipping News'

2. I don't cook as much as I should. I catered for 6 for a week on a sailing trip a couple of weeks ago with two hobs, a grill and a small oven. My best work was a stew, which contained flash fried mince beef, flash fried sausages, chilli powder, garlic powder, paprika powder, tinned tomatos, tinned beans and a stock cube. Unfortunately it was served with smash (a nasty, just-add-water, instant mash potato mix)

3. I have a guitar which I can't play. I like a lot of stuff, some personal favourites are Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns N' Roses, Foo Fighters, System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine and Led Zeppelin.

1. I love reading, I read almost anything. I've been going a little wacko these days... reason? Robin Cook. Starting to like his writings.

2. I love to cook. Spicy hot food, especially the hot mexican chilli. I just love hot food.

3. Music is my blood. Its the reason of my existence<grins>. I like the classicals, like country too.

1. I do enjoy reading, and I try to get a real buffet of literature. While I may pick up a great Emerson or Thoreau writing, I also read just things as Don Quixote. And of course, being a geek at heart, Alien Versus Predator, Aliens, Predator, random Star Wars book.

2. Oh I enjoy cooking quite a lot. I like making dishes with lots of hearty meat to fill the soul. My favorite chef from the food network is Alton Brown, I love the science of it all.

3. I may spread to other types of music, but I am a metal head. I grew up listening to heavy metal, Ronnie James Dio, Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, Manowar, Scorpions, and just about any other metal band out there. I listen to faster paced metal now, and I find all of metal to be quite enjoyable, because it makes you feel like you need to move, like your soul has a higher calling. Not to mention you don't look like a wuss listening to it.

1. Well, when it comes to books, I tend to side with Zappa: "I think it is good that books still exist, but they do make me sleepy." I like Roald Dahl the most. Some of my favorite books are The Giver, It's Like This, Cat; and A Million Little Pieces.

2. I'm a natural cook. Although, I can only make stuff if I have directions, I am natural inthat I can spice it up, make it a littler sweeter, or do whatever I have to do to make the recipe better. You should try my Hot Chocolate. :wink: (Wink)

3. I eat, sleep, and drink music. Nothing interests me, motivates me, or gets me going more. I have a DEEP passion for it-- more than I think most people understand. I have played piano since I was five; and I just started harmonica a couple months ago. I listen to Rock, Classic Rock, Jazz, Blues, Reggae, Bluegrass, Classical, and everything else you can think of. My favorite band is Phish. I also like The Beatles, Stan Getz, Nick Drake, Guster, George Winston, Enya, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and too many other people. Check my myspace and you'll see most of everything that I listen to, because I could go ON and ON and ON forever.

1)Yeah I love to read. I don’t really care what genre, as long as the story line isn’t too predictable.

2)I really don’t cook that much, but what I can cook I cook well. I’m a vegetarian, and eat a lot of raw or microwaveable foods, so I really can only cook pasta.

3)I like rock music

Gosh these are my interests...though I am terrible in cooking, but i can read books of cooking and mess in the kitchen at the same time listening to music.

I like most books as long as I gain much knowledge...my motto is:
Knowledge is power.
As for music... it makes me feel as if flying and makes my day much better if am exposed to certain stress or whatever and I like to hear all kinds of music and songs (forgive me am not so much into metal...I can barely digest Metallica) :wink:
And cooking is a skill and I confess that I lack that skill but nothing is impossible... may be later I can be good at it... but still am sure its gonna be me and only me who is gonna taste what I cook hehehe no one dares to fall under my experiments :D

see you...

Libra.

1). Do you love reading books? What kind of books do you prefer to read? Explain why. I love to read!!! I like to read books that take place in the 1500s-1800s. I love how proper they were, and how they dressed. I also love romance novels because it reminds me of how I will (hopefully) end up. Though they do sometimes make me jealous...

2). Who loves to cook? What kind of food do you prefer to cook? Your specialty? Explain why. I don't like to cook, though I'm sure I will love to when I get older and can make dinner for my family.

3). Do you love music? What kind of music do you want to hear? Explain why you love that kind of music. I love music!! I really like Indie Rock. My favorite bands are: Death Cab for Cutie, The Postal Service, Metric, Minus the Bear, Sufjan Stevens, Mew, Styrofoam, Nickleback, and <a gref="http://www.goodmorningcocktail.com/avenue/">Avenue</a> <--click there. I like Indie Rock because it's like musicial poetry.

i do, i do, i do.

1)as long as there is a book i'd read it. what i prefer is any good book. more than often i read weird dudes such as james joyce, although my childhood love was e.a.poe and then kurt vonnegut.

2)i prefer to cook easy food of course. my specialty is mixing different stuff together. say, tomtato, onion and oyster.

3)jazz big time. concertos and sonatas. hmmm yummy. piano solos are not bad either. some alternative cult classics, e.g. velvet underground, pixies, sonic youth.
