Be amazed and astounded at the enigma that is me...

I'm a recent-ish graduate of the University of Richmond, with a B.A. in music (and a minor in computer science)

I play oboe and English horn

In my earlier days, I attended Horace Mann Elementary School, Henry C. Beck Middle School, and Cherry Hill High School East, all in Cherry Hill, NJ

I won our school spelling bee when I was in 5th grade. My winning word was 'acrylic'

In 11th grade, I was on our high school's biology I league, and I placed 4th in the state for individual scores

I have a wonderful sense of direction

Fave rides at Disney World: Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Tower of Terror

In high school, I was an active member of the drama department: I had chorus roles in Into The Woods (dancing mouse #2), Bye Bye Birdie, Sweeney Todd, Pippin, and Carousel, and a "featured singing role" in Runaways (none of us had ever heard of it either). I was also a costume mistress for Noises Off, and head props master for The Wizard of Oz.

I was a girl scout from 2-6th grade. For this reason, I can never pass by Girl Scouts selling cookies without picking up a box or two.

Worst movie I've ever seen: Robinson Crusoe on Mars. This used to be Problem Child 2, but I can't, in good conscience, keep that in the top spot.

Places I've been: Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Vancouver, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, London (4x), Australia (2x)

My birthday is November 2. Thus, I am a Scorpio.

I'm right handed

Fave board games: Sorry, Trivial Pursuit

I love mint-flavored anything and lemon-flavored anything

My favorite color is purple. According to an email I got once, that means I'm "passionate, lazy, overindulgent, looking for a good time, preoccupied, trustworthy, open-minded". True? Who knows?

I played cymbals, bells, and bass drum in our high school marching band

I saw John Bolaris (Former weatherman for NBC10 in Philadelphia) at 30th Street Station once

I love people who make me laugh

Longest bus ride I've ever taken: 15 hours from Richmond to Orlando, Florida

Longest plane ride: 12 hours, from LA to Sydney Australia

I love 80s music

I own a hot pink stuffed octopus

TV shows I like:
Current: 24, Lost, Arrested Development, The O.C., CSI, The Amazing Race, The Daily Show, most stuff on Food Network
Favorite shows emeritus: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mystery Science Theater 3000 (the old Joel episodes in particular), Seinfeld, Firefly

I never teased my hair during the 80s, even though I lived in New Jersey

I never experienced the joys of sugary breakfast cereals until college

As far as Christmas specials go, it doesn't get any better than A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph

Fave movies: The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Dirty Dancing, Star Wars (the original trilogy, back before Lucas messed with it at all), North By Northwest, A Christmas Story, Ferris Bueller's Day Off

I am not a breakfast person
