#1 - I am a huge rock chick. I love Bon Jovi. I love Def Leppard. I love Heart, Pat Benatar, Tom Petty, Kansas, The Cars, The Police, etc., etc., etc. But Def Leppard is my favorite because I have had a crush on their bass player, who has the body of a god (or a really active soccer player), since I was about 13 years old.
#2 - I wrote an essay on vampire myth and folklore that got published in the American Mensa Journal. Because I like finding ways to merge my scifi nerddom, my braniac tendencies, and my love of writing. Who wouldn't?

#4 - I had an audio tape recording of Star Wars that I used to play over and over. It was adapted and edited from the original movie, and was not an exact word-for-word audio. This is why I can quote Star Wars dialogue at about 75-80% instead of 100%. If it had been word-for-word without edits, I think I'd be able to quote that movie perfectly.
#5 - I used to do homework for other classes during my Honors Chemistry class because the chemistry class was too easy, and I was bored. (This changed when I took AP Chemistry and actually had to work at it.)
#7 - You know that game where you have to figure out what one food you'd want with you on a desert island? I can't answer it. I like food too much. Maybe I'd want provolone cheese. Or chocolate. Or spaghetti with bread crumbs and anchovies (which is a hugely popular dish in southern Italy and Sicily). Or cannolis... You can see my problem.
#8 - I love The Lord of the Rings novels. I also love William Faulkner and Shakespeare. I think this makes me a more versatile reader than many people I know. Ooh, I also like Tales of the Teen Titans. What can I say?
#9 - I am a Christian, and I love God. I think He's very cool. This proves that not all intellectuals are atheists. In fact, I think God is way smarter than I am, and this fact impresses me.
#10 - I like to engage in what I call "happy dancing." This is when you don't worry about how you look when you dance. You just dance however you want, moving however makes you happy. because the music is great and you want to have fun. I think everyone should engage in happy dancing because it would take the pressure off looking cool, and allow everyone to have fun. I know a lot of people are reluctant to do this. Even I usually do it only at home, when no one's watching. But it is a blast. I encourage you to try it sometime.
Now, I know I'm supposed to tag other bloggers to do this. Haven't had time to ask anyone in advance of this post if they'd be willing to participate. So let's just say that if you want to do ten random things about you (or even five), go ahead and do it on your blog and include a link to your post in the comments here.
