25 Random things ...

(I got tagged on Facebook but I figured I would post it here as well for "safe keeping." I also tagged people on Facebook so I am going to leave a simple open invitation for here.)

Rules: Once you've been tagged, write a note with 25 random facts, habits or goals about yourself. Choose 25 people to tag in the note, including the person who tagged you.

1. I am absolutely in love with the new hidato puzzles
2. My favorite color is purple
3. I have a fear of falling
4. I LOVE photography and enjoy capturing the personality of various animals
5. I want to learn to quilt, to build stain glass windows, to spin/glaze pottery, to paint with oils, to sculpt, and sign language
6. I have spent the last six years of my life trying to convince people bugs are cute
7. I have spent the night on an island in Antarctica being kept awake by penguins
8. If I ever wrote a book about the silly people in life I have encountered while working at museums it would either be titled “What is the capital of Africa?” or “What color is the state Australia?” … both questions I have been asked.
9. My favorite insects to work with are the ones that want to kill me … and think they can (Think Jeff Dunham's Achmed "I kill you!")
10. I have seen the world’s largest ball of twine … wasn’t as big as I expected
11. I don’t have either of my stapes (ear bones) or my gall bladder
12. One of my dream vacations is to take a road trip to Alaska … flying there just wouldn’t be the same
13. I practically live off of orange sodas and oranges but orange is my least favorite color
14. I make it a point to buy the local rum on my international trips … but I do so to pickle bugs not my brain
15. It is one of my more far-fetched dreams to own a Frisian … though I would settle for almost any horse
16. I have spent several nights in Africa being kept awake by lions, hyenas, and baboons (and, oddly enough, the freezing cold)
17. I talk to myself, answer myself and, at times, argue with myself
18. I look forward to going to Dollywood and the Dixie stampede every year
19. I can’t sing or dance but I still do so very often … at home alone
20. I share my birthday with Billy Joel
21. I want to see a great white shark and a blue whale before I die
22. I love to travel and am nearly dying from not having a chance in the past year
23. My cat is in the “kitty protection program” because … well I kind of stole it
24. I have been to a stargate convention and a firefly convention and would go to a star trek one if the opportunity presented itself
25. I love watching texas hold’em on television, can name more of the players first and last name then people I work with, and yet I have never played (nor desire to play) a hand of poker

1 - I am very, very jealous that you have traveled to Antarctica. I will get there one day.
2 - sign language and stained glass are both very fun, though I would say stained glass in the more difficult of the two (though that might be due at least in part to my own propensity to break the glass...)
3 - I was supposed to be at an anime convention and didn't get to go. *le sigh* I'd love to go to any of the three you mentioned though. The closest I've gotten would be the Star Trek experience and Quark's bar in Las Vegas.
4 - How, pray tell, did you steal your kitty?
