2. See if anybody else responds with "I've done that."
3. Have your friends cut & paste this into their journal to see what unique things they've done in their life.
1. Worn a formal gown into the McDonald's ball pit.
2. Graffitied my high school (the auditorium catwalks).
3. Literally spent my entire paycheck on books (it was Christmas! I worked at the bookstore!).
It's kind of sad that the first two date from high school. I'm not very exciting. Or, my friends are too exciting, cause there was a bunch of stuff that would have been unique in a lot of crowds, but not mine.
Hmm. not doing as well as I thought. Then again, there's a fair amount of recent stuff on here I have no interest in reading ever (Life of Pi, The Historian). There are, I think, 14 I would like to read at some point. 3 of which I already own. I don't think I'm going to add them to my to-read list if they're not already there, however.
Edited to add LJ-cut. I need to remember how to do that without looking it up every time.
According to this, I am this type:
This is weirdly accurate. Try it!
Abides by the rules Great follower Does not like too much attention A little self-conscious Somewhat reserved Likes a schedule May occasionally color hair to attract attention
I have always saved any site that looked well-done as a bookmark, in case someone I knew asked me about the topic. Then I became a librarian, and strangers asked me about topics. I have over 1500 bookmarks organized in my personal hierarchy and publicly posted on a web page.
I love(d) the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series, and even have a certain fondness for the movie. And I still read the fanfiction a couple of years after the demise.
CSI is also a favorite TV series. I love the building up of the clues to a picture of the event - it's like my favorite mystery novels.
I'm fascinated by language in general, and how words evolve, shifting meanings and connotations.
A new online trend of allowing "folks" to create their own categories for things (usually bookmarks), instead of a formal taxonomy decreed by some authority.
One of my favorite (and less well-known) SF series is the Liaden books by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Just amazing writing and world-building.
Another favorite TV series. For a librarian, I'm a serious TV junkie. I hope I don't have to explain what Lost is to anybody. However, I will say that survival stories have always been one of my favorites genres - Robinson Crusoe, Clan of the Cave Bear, anything where people are essentially in the middle of nowhere with no equipment or supplies - I love that.
I consider myself a pagan, someone who reveres nature and believe in a mother goddess. I'm a solitary practitioner, since most gatherings of pagans seem to concentrate on stuff I have zero interest in, like tarot or astrology or auras or other new-agey crap. I would say I gradually converted starting around the time I moved to New York, though I had been interested in the idea since high school.
9. science fiction:
I've loved science fiction since early adolescence, and keep up with several series.
I love, love my Tivo, though I'm not one of those evangelists trying to convert all my friends. Though I can lean that way if they ask me about it. I only wish they would hurry up with the tape one/watch one ability, for when my shows coincide.

We all knew that I would score highest on Verbal/Linguistic, right? Bookworm, librarian, walking thesaurus?
Actually, I'm surprised that Logical/Mathamtical wan't a little higher. Then again, I don't like numbers, but I do like logic, so maybe that's what it's reflecting. I also though interpersonal would be a little lower.
