broadly tagged her flist for this and I haven't been posting much lately, so I'm taking this as a poke with a sharp stick to be more active on LJ. So, 7 things you may or may not know about me:
1. I have the ticket stubs, wristbands, or badges of every convention I've ever attended. The first one was TARDIS 21 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in 1984. Back in those days, you bought your tickets from someplace like Ticketmaster and they gave you an actual ticket like a concert or theater ticket. My parents bought two tickets and shared the second one between them so they could take turns chaperoning me on alternate days.
2. When I was in high school, the big crushes for girls were Rick Springfield and the members of Duran Duran. My biggest crushes in high school were Lord Peter Wimsey and d'Artagnan of the Musketeers. Yeah, I read a lot.
3. Part of my college graduation requirements for my degree was to do a one semester internship and then write a 30 page paper about the experience. The end of the semester happened to coincide with convention season here in Chicago, so the bulk of the paper was written between panels and while waiting in lines at Visions '90 (coincidentally also at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare).
4. I'm an only child. Both of my parents are also only children. I've never had aunts, uncles, or cousins.( Read more... )
