20 Random things

Michele at Scholar's Blog tagged me for 20 Random things about myself.
  1. I have a dragon named--Dragon and when I meet former students they ALWAYS ask how HE is doing. For a fellow who does not say much, he is apparently, unforgettable.
  2. I am a real librarian with a masters degree in library science who started life as a petrochemical/engineering industry librarian.
  3. I have always loved and read children's and YA books.
  4. I love Texas because it is the friendliest state in these United States.
  5. My favorite movie is The Lord of the Rings.
  6. I was a French major in college.
  7. I lived in the Netherlands as a child and in Strasbourg, France for a year when I was in college. The British consulate library in Strasbourg was one of my regular stops.
  8. I like all kinds of music, Van Morrison is one of my favs.
  9. I think Jack Gantos is the funniest author I have ever heard speak.
  10. I LOVE, adore, need coffee. I love hot tea.
  11. I am amazed how much I have in common with some bloggers.
  12. Entling no. 2 is going to Scotland in January. I wish I were going too.
  13. I am a BBCAmerican and I think Trinny & Susannah are brilliant .
  14. My family once drove to College Station, Texas just to hear Sean Astin (Samwise) speak.
  15. We drove to Atlanta, GA to see Howard Shore conduct the Lord of the Rings Symphony.
  16. My favorite TV shows are Battlestar Galactica, House and 24.
  17. We have started watching the DVDs of Firefly and I LOVE it and now I am having some emotional issues about the ending to the movie Serenity.
  18. Ritter's Frozen Custard is fantastic.
  19. I have cardboard standups of the entire Fellowship (except for Boromir because they NEVER sold him) guarding my front door. I love to watch folks faces when they enter my home.
  20. I spend too much time on the computer.

The standups are fab, Camille!

I'm with you with the "too much time on the computer" :)

That one part near the end of Serenity nearly killed me. We were Firefly fans before seeing the movie and I am possibly a little too attached to those characters.

I am trying to figure out how I missed watchng Firefly when it was on TV. I love the characters too and I know what part you mean. Wahhh...
