10:45 am - 20 Random Facts About Me
I was tagged for this meme by whitemartyr. Thanks, silly. :-)



1. I am the eldest of seven children.
2. No, my family is not Catholic; we are Protestant (and "charistmatic") Christian.
3. I lived in the same house from the time I was four until I left for university at 19.
4. I still played with my dolls (mind you, I had about 35, all with names/personalities) at age 14.
5. I attended a Canadian university--Trinity Western.
6. My first day on campus was also the first time I'd been outside the USA for more than an afternoon.
7. I had hair down past my bum until about a year ago.
8. I have never dyed or bleached my hair.
9. I mail-order bras, because stupid stores don't carry anything for A-and-a-half.
10. I first read "Lord of the Rings" when I was nine.
11. I read it at least once a year after that, till I got into college.
12. I wrote my first fanfiction story when I was fourteen--at least 3 years before I knew what fanfic was.
13. I have had the privilage of watching one of my sisters being born (at home, no less).
14. I have not kissed a boy since kindergarten.
15. Somehow I missed out on the Harry Potter hype/freak-out until I actually read book one.
16. I've met Dean Batali, who wrote for Buffy--he's the coolest TV-writer-also-Christian.
17. I'm not sure how I became a CSI fan, given that my first, traumatic episode was "Slaves of Las Vegas", aka the S&M-bondage-club episode.
18. I adore the liturgy in the Anglican Book of Common Prayer.
19. I think a lot about going back to school someday for a Master's or further degree--preferably in some field where I can study fandom. :-)
20. I am attracted to older men, both in RL and in media. (Richard Dean Anderson, William Petersen, Steve Martin...oh yeah.)

There, was that random enough?

Can't see the reason for the smiley. It would be a perfectly good field of research in Sociology or Social Anthropology. I graduated in the latter, and actually used superhero fandom as a term of comparison to explain the evolution of early Irish monastic culture
(http://www.geocities.com/vortigernstudies/fabio/book4.2.htm).

The smiley was because my B.A. is in English Literature. Any field I went into with the intention of exploring fandom...well, the field itself would be of interest second to my interest in fandom itself. I like social anthropology, but I've never been interested enough to properly educate myself. I dabble.

SG-1 after the entire population of Abydos has been killed and Ascended. It's a very nice quote for the scene.

It is indeed. Icon was one of a set made using lyrics from a song; series created by fikgirl. She's awesome at icons.

I've met Dean Batali, who wrote for Buffy--he's the coolest TV-writer-also-Christian.

What episodes did he write?

I adore the liturgy in the Anglican Book of Common Prayer.

Oh it's great -- until you have to recite it every day except Saturdays. I went to an Anglican private school (as well as an Anglican church) for a few years, where the priest was going through the motions; it really made me hate the liturgy.

Now that I've been hanging around other denominations for 15-odd years, I can appreciate the Anglican liturgy -- once a year.

Um, he was on staff during the first two seasons. I think he wrote the swim team episode, and I know he wrote "The Dark Age," because he's a comedy writer and as a Christian he believes that demons exist, so writing that ep freaked him out. (I also think that's why it's so good--I love that ep.)

Oh yeah, I could see it getting old after that. Wow. I only had it every Sunday for a year in university, and now miss it remarkably.

That probably explains why the demon in that episode was more like a "traditional" demon than most of the demons in Buffy, which weren't really demons, but magical monsters.

Dude, Richard Dean Anderson is hot. And he got hotter as he aged. I mean, MacGyver was cute, but O'Neill is just gorgeous. (tho' not as much as my Daniel, but there you have it)

You've beat me on the LotR precociousness by two years. Go you.

MacGyver is great because RDA's uninhibited smile is just remarkable, and as O'Neill he never gets to use it.

But yes...the older he gets, the hotter he gets. Season 1 Jack is good-looking, season 5 is just -- *thud*

And I fully understand the Daniel fans. But RDA is still hotter. :-)

Really? It might be slightly less than 2 years cause I'm not sure if I was nearly 10 or not. I spent the next 5 rereads fixing misconceptions and misunderstandings in my head. :-) I couldn't make mental maps till I was about 14, so... I had some weird ideas/images. Heh.
