Books. Well, I like books. I like talking about bookstores and used bookstores and libraries and museums.
Star Trek, but I have to remember not everyone wants to talk about it. I can also talk about Blake’s 7 or Babylon 5 for variety.
I just finished reading all the A Song of Ice and Fire books, so now I am dying to talk about it with someone.
History. I love museums. I read and collect books on African American history. My grandmother was a part of a historical archive project and I found a three hour interview with her online! It was a real treasure to hear her voice again.
Science. I don’t know as much about science as I like but I enjoy learning about it.
Food. I enjoyed reading everyone’s post about food because I love to try new cuisine.
The truth is, I’m fairly open about what I will talk about. I am a shy person, but when I get a chance to meet someone new, I try to listen and get to know about them. The only things I don’t talk about with people I don’t know well are sensitive topics like politics or religion. I also hate office gossip. As soon as the office gossip starts in the break room, I leave. I really don’t want to be pulled into it.
I don’t much like talking about sports but I’m trying to more open about that. I had so much fun watching World Cup Rugby last year, I think I’m actually beginning to like it.
