Who Are You?  
Pillaged from strangevisitor7. Timely, as I was saying yesterday, people participating in the polls, I don't know a lot of them, so this is my chance to get to know you [insert evil chuckle]

Hey Flist!
Some of you I know extremely well(you know who you are) but others I know very little about. But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes office supplies." I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. (Yes, even you people who I know really well.) Then post this in your own journal. In return, ask me anything you'd like to know about me and I'll give you an answer.

I'll add my own bit to this: even if you haven't friended me, but read my LJ, you can play too [g]

I was adopted and moved to the US in 1963 just in time to see the Beatles debut on Ed Sullivan.

I love Highlander

I love Bailey's Irish Cream

I love Duncan/Methos

Hawaii 5-0
White Collar
Grey's Anatomy
Brothers & Sisters
My friends

In return, ask me anything you'd like to know about me and I'll give you an answer.

If every possible opportunity were open to you, what would you do with your life?

I'd get a degree in something like Anglo Saxon studies, or ancient European civilization [g]

I replied to strangevisitor7 and will tell you here. I have a degree in mortuary science. Of course, I'm doing nothing with it in terms of a job, but it does make watching shows like CSI interesting because I understand the science.

Also, some that might be a bit obvious, but I have a thing for Welshmen. My husband, Peter Wingfield, Ioan Gruffudd, Gareth David-Lloyd...all Welshmen I find tasty. :)

Hmmm... I'm working on a master's degree in higher education and student affairs, which is a pretty broad field that includes things like academic advising, managing residence halls, and advising student organizations. I'm taking one class at a time while working full-time, so it'll probably be 2-3 more years before I finish the degree.

I've followed you as a fan of HL fiction for a while, although I mainly just read NCIS fic now. I have a BS in Public Relations, then went back for a Master of Arts in Teaching. Thanks to the economy changing, I'm wondering why I ever did it. Teaching jobs are rare, schools are laying off, and I am currently subbing in several school districts.

Let's see, I love to read, love to hit the coffee shop, and am taking a couch to 5K class in running. I'm signed up for two 5Ks this spring, and hope to complete a 10K later this year at the Air Force Marathon.

My question....hmmmmmm. Darn, I can't think of any right now!

Well as everyone appears to be sharing their qualifications - I have a lovely useless joint hons MA degree in English-Philosophy and a diploma in Shakespeare Studies.

I'm also a bit obsessed with rubber stamps/stamping. :)

Might as well add my own degree into this. I have an Associate's Degree in Applied Science, with a major in Office Systems. Which...oddly...around here leaves me overqualified for most jobs I apply for.

I have spent the last week up to the gills in rubbing alcohol, bleach and vinegar. I also drank a whole lot of apple cider vinegar trying to get rid rid of this bug. I've come to the conclusion that I like apple cider vinegar and am now wondering if Nin can figure out how to make a tasty drink with it.

She probably could.

What don't you know about me...I played clarinet in the georgia tech marching band - the single best experience of my college career. It was a blast and we got to go to the NCAA basketball tournament. I still pull the horn out to play with Brett and we have little concerts together.

I was in choir at Penn Sate but that wasn't nearly as much fun (wasn't good enough to make the PSU band)

My favorite superhero has been the Scarlet Witch ever since I read Marvel Team-Up Annual #5 when I was, like, six or seven or eight or nine. :-)

I forge metal and make jewelry for a living; but am learning to paint portraits in oil and modify My Little Ponies for fun.

I walked into a class completely soaking wet and took them to see my sculpture I'd just sunk in a creek.

I read faster than anyone I know.
