Because I was tagged. But don't expect me to tag you.

25 things:

1. I don't have a favorite color. Please don't ask me, I really can't decide. I also don't have a favorite book. It's always the last one that I read.

2. I have a bit of an obsession with House. Before that it was West Wing, Law & Order: SVU, Gilmore Girls, and Friends. But if it isn't one of those shows, I've probably never seen it and am not interested.

3. I live in an old apartment building in New York City, converted into a student suite. I have 6 roommates, we have about 700 sq. ft, one bathroom, and I couldn't be happier.

4. I don't download music illegally because I could never figure out how.

5. New York City is my favorite playground.

6. I don't have enough room on my shelves for all of my books and that makes me really happy.

7. I keep voodoo dolls around for good luck. And because they're cute.

8. No matter how much I complain, I love college, especially the stress that comes with it.

9. I love doing things that other people think is scary. Especially if someone tells me I can't.

10. I spend about 10 hours a week on my bike, even when it's 25 degrees out.

11. I'll be honest, though, I started biking because of the guys in spandex.

12. At some point in my life, I want to live on at least 3 continents (not all at the same time, of course).

13. Lately, I think I want to be a lawyer.

14. But really I want to be the Secretary of State.

15. My favorite philosophers are Aristotle, Augustine, Machiavelli and Rousseau. I like them much better than Kant and Descartes. I rather like reason, but the rationalists are so boring.

16. I also think that working in a skating rink is fun. :)

17. I wouldn't trade my family for anything.

18. I don't have any stamps. Thank you cards for my birthday gifts are sitting on my desk,waiting for me to go buy stamps.

19. Gmail is my life. I don't know what I would do without Google.

20. If someone asks me a question that I don't know the answer to, I make it up. Then I go home and look on Wikipedia for the real answer

21. The majority of settings on my computer and phone are in French. I don't know if it helps my French skills at all, but I like it.

22. I love vulgar humor. I think it's a family thing.

23. I like winter. Not only does it give everyone around a similar foe, but without a proper winter there is no proper spring. And there is nothing like spring.

24. I chew too much gum. I think I am addicted to minty breath. My oral surgeon told me one time that my jaw is going to seize up someday.

25. I have lots of odds-and-ends skills, like how to teach weight training and how to pole dance. The latter, however, I can only do theoretically in an exercise setting because I am not actually mature enough to do it without laughing fur realz.
