I let my dog sleep on the bed, and treat her like she's my baby. Yes, I am one of those crazy dog people!
@NotoriousTeaDrinker is my younger sister who lives next door to me. We have a third sister, the baby of the family, who is in a PhD program out of state.
I have traveled to Peru, Ireland, France, and England.
I double majored in Economics and English. Many people have assumed that I chose English because I loved it, and Economics because I wanted to find a job. In actual fact, I am a complete and total nerd who loves both subjects, although I never did show much of a talent for Economics.
The animal that best represents my personality is a hedgehog. I have never had a pet hedgehog, but I love hedgehog themed items.
My favorite thing to receive in the mail is a nice, long letter. I love writing letters, too! I generally write at least two pages, front and back, and (usually) reply to letters reasonably promptly.
I love to receive touristy postcards mailed from the destination pictured. I would be very happy to receive a postcard of your hometown! I would also love postcards picturing any of my favorite things, like animals, tea, Dr. Who, etc. I've had a bit of trouble finding reasonably priced postcards with hedgehogs or Totoro, so if you find any, let me know where I can get them! I prefer postcards be mailed naked, with a note written on them.
I do not believe in fortune telling, but I think it's fun to read horoscopes and fortune cookies. I'm a Scorpio. :)
My youngest sister has often compared me to Tigger. I'm not sure if that accurately describes my personality or not. Perhaps it reflects the aspect of personality that she enjoys the most...?

"It isn't possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal." -E.M. Forster
"To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom." -Bertrand Russel
