25 random things

There's this thing going around Facebook, where people write 25 random things about themselves and then get all their friends to do the same thing. Being rather amused by everyone else's lists, I've decided it'd make a darn fine blog post, too.

  1. River Phoenix was my first major movie star crush.
  2. The Brothers Karamazov is my favorite book of all time.
  3. I drink pickle juice. Straight from the jar.
  4. I'm fully aware that's disgusting.
  5. I met my husband when we were both in costume.
  6. It wasn't Halloween.
  7. My favorite movies of all time are Godfather I and II and Casablanca.
  8. I wish I could have gone to Hogwarts.
  9. I probably would have been good at potions.
  10. I would not have made the quidditch team.
  11. My beautiful little Bug makes me smile a dozen times a day. No... way more than that.
  12. I'm glad she has my dimples.
  13. I'm also glad she has Joker's eyes.
  14. I call my grandma a few times a week.
  15. She thanks me for it, but she deserves the "thanks."
  16. The most amazing historical site I have visited was the 10th Century Moorish castle in Sintra, Portugal.
  17. The best scuba diving I have done was in Rangiroa, French Polynesia.
  18. I've eaten blowfish, frog's legs, and Rocky Mountain Oysters.
  19. I thought Eddie and the Cruisers was the name of a band until I was in college. I saw John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band play Toad's Place, and asked a friend if they played anything but Eddie and the Cruisers covers.
  20. I got engaged on an island in Sweden.
  21. I walked down the aisle to "Here Comes the Sun."
  22. I hope the Bug uses her passport well.
  23. She may need to when she lives at home and goes to Yale, as per my current plan.
  24. Season 4 of Buffy was my least favorite, but it contained two of the best episodes: "Hush" and "Restless."
  25. I've written a blog since August 2007. This is post #235.
