This was in my TopStuff blog, but I'm nuking it, so moving it here.

Just a few of my favourite things :)
This was compiled from stacks of online quizzes, and then sorted into some sort of category order.

Scary movie:Don't have one. I don't like scary movies. Actually I take that back. In 1991 at the end of year 12, our maths class went out to see a movie. They chose to see Silence of the Lambs. I didn't want to see it, but eventually was talked into it. The silly thing is I really liked it - I think even more than anyone else that went!

I was about to inquire indignantly why Stu's name appears *nowhere* in your list of favourite people. But then I noticed that you made the list back before you crossed the Rubicon - er, I mean, "met Stu" :-D - so *that's all right then.* ;-) ;-) ;-)

Hi, any young lady that see pork in all its forms as an ideal food source. Is as rare as hens teeth, plus several other points in your lists, must make you almost a mythical in nature. And your still single:)!!!

Because of our very similar ages, I identify with quite a few things here, and in your top 100. (No you cant have my airwolf badge! :P)

If your desire to fly is very real:
Then I suggest finding your local gliding club and learn to fly. Seriously. If you can drive a car you can fly. Nothing beats cruising through the silky smooth air of late afternoon watching the sun setting from 5000ft while watching the shadows below lengthening. No engines, no noise. Just you, surrounded by some technology and the science in your head to allow you to (cliche alert) soar with the eagles. (Wedgetails in my case, just last weekend.)

Not that I think this will bother you, but it's definitely for gurls as well.

Hi! I love the site! Was just wondering what school you went to? I went to Jannali Girls High and my teachers were also Mr Jirsa and Mr Francis (great teachers too).

I went there between 1981 and 1985.

Who are you, were you in Yr 10 - 1986. You seem familiar but could just be same era, school, etc.
