Problem: Was a binge eater in my teens & for a short while in my twenties. (Not that I was always overweight). Back then there were times that I ate to make myself feel better or to deal with stress.

My biggest problem now is I can eat too many sweets at times. Iím so bad! TskÖtskÖ

Also, ones to note that I enjoyed but wouldnít call favs is Brazil, Blade Runner, Sweet Smell of Success, The Grapes of Wraith, Swing Time, Chinatown, The Quiet Man, Lawrence of Arabia, Meet me in St. Louis, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Rebel without a Cause, Adaptation, Shane, Back to the Future, Beetlejuice, Clueless, Legally Blond, and a bunch more Iím forgetting. Plus, there are still many movies I havenít seen!!!


Favorite books/plays: Old man and the Sea, Animal Farm, Black Beauty, The Count of Monte Cristo, Little Women, Island of Blue Dolphins, The Secret Garden, Harry Potter, Wind in the Willows, Hamlet, Wicked (the play), Phantom of the Opera, anything by Beatrix Potter, A Princess of Mars, The Hobbit, Dune, To Kill a Mockingbird, A time to Kill, Charlotteís Web, Icewind Dale Triology, A Farwell to Arms, Sandman comics, Superman for all Seasons, Sin City, and a bunch of others but I think my movie list was long enough so Iíll stop here on the books. Oh and Iím dying to read 1984 by George Orwell and a Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I need to get on that!
