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

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.
