"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

I'm totally with you on the nose-wiggling thing...and although I suck at these memes, I'll make a special effort to do this one. ;-)

Nina said...

This is a bit creepy! We both crochet, we both garden, we both want to visit Ireland, Paris and the Smithsonian, we both are Harry Potter freaks, and we both miss riding horses. I even owned my own horse for 6ish years. Are you sure you and my sister didn't get switched at birth?

Sunny said...

I love "How I Met Your Mother" ... I hope we get to meet the Mother soon! You should check out "Big Bang Theory" right before it... it's even funnier. :)

MrsSpock said...

Mr Spock and I are big sci-fi fans as well (if you can't tell from my bloggy names, hehe), and love to watch Dr Who. I am soooo excited for Harry Potter as well. We just saw the new Trek yesterday- whee!

becomingwhole said...

Woo-hoo, Harry Potter! Thanks for the tag, I'm getting right on it.

Barb said...

Germany.. Ahhh I'm jealous. My Dad lives there and we visited, and I fell in love.

Mrs. Gamgee said...

I really like these kinds of intros and conversation starters... you learn so much random stuff about others. :)

BTW, is it too late to join your book challenge?

Kristin said...

Nope...its definitely not too late. The more, the merrier!

I always love reading the little tidbits of information people provide in these things. :) Thanks for sharing!!
