\m/Five favorite movies:
The Lord of the Rings trilogy

Billy Madison and/or Happy Gilmore (love them both - hard to decide between the two!)
Clerks/Mall Rats/Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (once again - hard to choose - I love Kevin Smith movies)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
\m/Five favorite books:
The Keltiad series by Patricia Kennealy Morrison
The Lord of the Rings trilogy + The Hobbit
The Light Bearer
Any of the First Man in Rome series by Coleen McCullough
Anything by Jane Austen (so not metal, but what can I say? It's my little bit of girliness shining through . . . )
\m/What is an interesting fact about you? I'm a grad student trying to make the world a better place . . . no seriously, I do air pollution research. I get to see all the nastiness we breathe in every day. Also - my parents were big hippies, so I got to attend all sorts of awesome classic shows growing up (ie, the Grateful Dead, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Moody Blues, BB King, the Doobie Bros, the Eagles, etc.) - not metal, but still amazing music.
\m/If you could be anything besides yourself for a day, what would you be, and why? I would be a guy, so I could see what it felt like to have sex with girls . . . or, I would be a rock star, so I would know what it felt like to play in front of thousands of screaming fans.
\m/What was the Best Metal concert you've been to? I have a hard time classifying this, because every good show I've been to, I have a tendency to say, "this was the best show ever!" And since I just saw Queensryche perform Operation: Mindcrime a week ago, I'm on Queensryche kick at the moment. Definitely a kick-ass show.

\m/Post a pic of yourself.
This is of me and my boyfriend
Just messing around with some friends, literally falling on the floor laughing, and then getting pictures taken of us
This from my best friend's wedding (it's scary when your friends start getting married! makes me feel old) - I had to look all nice and schtuff
I've been riding horses for almost my entire life
I have very strong ties to my celtic heritage, and this is very similar to part of a tattoo I have scheduled to get inked in a little over a month
Hmmm . . . That was more pictures than I intended, but gives you a little insight into me. Can't wait to hear about more metal, especially newer stuff, as I'm pretty much into the old-school.
