Movies: I'm a Lifetime junky. I also like horror movies a lot. It really depends on my mood. I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy too.

TV Shows: Gilmore Girls, ARMY Wives, Burn Notice, Greek. Those are my 'must see' shows
(well, GG is on twice a day in reruns. But I still watch it) I also tune in to Dancing with the Stars.

Songs: Top 40 stuff a lot....I like "oldies" too...a little bit of everything. I guess it goes the same as my movie taste.

Books: Steven King, chick lit, and Lurlene McDaniel (she writes more for teens, but her books are well written I think...and they always make me cry. The book equivalent to a Lifetime Movie). Right now I'm reading "The Second Assistant"
