I've been tagged by Cariad in Crete - my first time! So here goes ...
Just so those who are not interested in these details don't get bored, I've interspersed the answers with goofy pictures of our cats. :)
1) Clothes Shop
I am totally distracted while shopping for clothes in India, for cotton skirts, blouses, saris and more. But here in the US, I rarely go shopping for clothes unless I need something in particular. I do enjoy looking at outdoor/athletic gear at Academy or REI though.
2) Furniture Shop
We have a working collection of stuff for now - I didn't enjoy the process of shopping for them! I am not very attached to my furniture - want to be able to sell it all at a moment's notice and move to far off lands. ;) I like the designs at IKEA or Pier 1 Imports though.
I am more of a hot, spicy food person than a sweet person ... but when in the mood for sweet stuff, I like Hit chocolate cookies or chocolate wafers. And Indian milk+cashew sweets of all kinds!
There are many ... in the US: Santa Fe in New Mexico, and anywhere on Maui! Outside the US, of the places I've been to, I liked & wish I could live in Alleppey in Kerala and Cusco in Peru.
Ginger chai - I am addicted to my evening cup of ginger tea, especially on cold or cloudy days! On hot days I love coconut water, and spinach-pineapple juice from Mr. Naturals, a Mexican vegetarian restaurant here in Austin.
Too many kinds to list here ... it depends on my moods, and I have many of them. Then I listen to ghazals, jazz, salsa, indian classical, bollywood hindi songs, tamil songs, pop music, or any other world music. Looks like I've listed all the music I know, but I really can't pick one and it does all depend on my mood! :)
7) TV Series
I haven't watched regular cable TV in a few years now, so I'm not in touch with what's happening now. But my all-time favorite TV series has to be Seinfeld. I have watched ALL the episodes multiple times, and can still watch them again. :) I also like Keeping Up Appearances, and Frasier.
This is like the music question! But let's see - my all-time favorite movies are: O Brother Where Art Thou, Dirty Dancing, Out of Africa, Before Sunrise, Office Space, Roman Holiday ... you get the idea!
I've been into sports my whole life - so any chance I get, I like to play basketball or volleyball. Am addicted to hiking, and though my knees don't cooperate anymore, I like to run and bike as well.
Not too much into cakes or sweet pastries, with the exception of black forest or tres leches vegan cake!
I love the smell of fresh ground coffee, but hate the smell of brewed coffee! So I don't drink any. The only form I like coffee in is ice cream!
I guess I need to pass along the tag - so I pass it along to: Blu (Blucamels in Brittany), Sydney (Adventures in Nature), Chris (of ShadyGrove), & Pinkdogwood (Wandering Mind) ...
