L - Life, the Universe, and Everything

Yes, I'm a Douglas Adams fan  :D

But what this post really is about is me. Well, okay in a way, this whole month is about me, but this is just a quick list (another "L" word) about the things I like, my own personal "Life, the Universe, and Everything".  
  • I was born on January 17, 1969, at about 3 a.m., in Madison Heights, MI.
  • My favorite color is green.
  • Green is also the name of one of my favoirte teachers ever--altough she's put her foot down that former students do *not* call her Mrs. Green, they call her Arelene. She's an amazing lady. My other favorite teachers are my second grade teacher, Mrs. Stockman (whom I haven't actually seen since elementary school) and my middle school creative writing teacher, Ms. Good. I also really loved taking Anthropology at OCC with Mr. Carpenter and Astronomy with Dr. Lamb was amazing.
  • My favorite animal is the platypus
  • I'm a total sci fi geek
  • One of my favorite TV shows of all time is Doctor Who; Torchwood is pretty awesome too (we do NOT discuss Children of Earth or that atrocity that came after it, however).
  • Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica (old and new) are also equally amazing.
  • I love old Godzilla movies, but I love Gamera more.
  • My hobbies include gardening and backyard astronomy.
  • My job is writing and I love it!!
  • My favorite movie of all time is Luc Besson's Subway
  • My next favorite movies (in no particular order) are Oscar, Rosencrantz and Guildernstern are Dead, Plunkett and McCleanePitch Black, Kinky Boots, Romeo and Juliet (the one with Leonardo DiCaprio) and Sense and Sensiblity.  If anyone can figure out what that says about me, I'd love to know!
  • I have way too many favorite books to name, but I am excessivly fond of The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop and Steven Brust's Jhergh books. And of course, I love Douglas Adams!
  • My favorite actor is Johnny Depp
  • My favorite guilty pleasure is Project Runway
  • My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, although my heritage is Russian, Irish, and Welsh.
  • I used to be a vegetarian
  • I love bacon! (Which is why I'm no longer a vegetarian  ;) 
  • My favorite flowers are white roses
  • I have a wonderful husband who has never forgotten that
  • I have a pretty wonderful former husband who is now a very dear friend (he's on his third marriage, too; guess third time really is the charm!)
  • I have a very low tolerance for bullshit. I try to be nice and accomidating and allow for the fact that we live in a diverse world and in a country where everyone is entitled to their opinion and beliefs, but one person's right to religious and philosophical freedom shouldn't mean that another person is denied basic freedom, things like the freedom to worship as they choose and marry whom they choose (you know, assuming everybody is a concenting adult and nobody's getting hurt.)
  • In my old age, I speak up more when faced with things that piss me off!
