Music, Movies, and Books

Too much judgement can be passed on ones taste in books, but I love a good novel.. and Chris raschka´s illustrated beats. Dr. Seuss too... he´s classic.

As for movies, I love the Tripletts of Belleville, and
Into the Wild.

I've never heard anything more penetrating than Ravi & Anoushka Shankar, but at the moment I'd like to listen to more slide guitar and banjo perhaps...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

swam in phosphorescence, i felt like mickey mouse in fantasia!

Teach, Learn, Share

From my Russian roots, I have carried on a devout love for beets (nutritious AND delicious).
I can thus share some rockin' beet recipes with you, if, of course, you don't mind getting your hands a little red for the sake of awesome.

and now that I've read the CS uni message... I friggin love talking about psychology related stuff.
