I'm a history nut. I'm particularly fond of Ancient Egypt. I gobble up all I can on 15th century Italy. I'm fascinated by Regency England. The transition from old Victorian to modern life in the 1910s intrigues me.
I'm a sci-fi geek. I can quote the Star Wars trilogy from beginning to end. My ring tone is the TARDIS. I've yet to see something by Joss I don't love. But I also love fantasy. Who doesn't enjoy Tolkien or Dresden?
I've got an unhealthy obsession with Hello Kitty. I think cats are adorable demigods.
I'm a political junkie. I'm a proud bleeding heart liberal, from a long line of politically active Democrats (just ran across some listings from the 1910s/20s about my great-grandfather serving the DNC in his precinct). I (and I blush to admit it) registered Republican at 18 as a form of rebellion. I did quickly see the error of my ways, but not before getting Newt's signature on "Contact with America." We all have our youthful indiscretions, though. I try to use my 16-20 year old self as a bridge to the other side... Admittedly not had much success with that.
