In my Secret Santa panic, I've analyzed my own lists (??), and they are often really sarcastic, and say very little about my true interests.
  1. I'm an ordained Dudeist priest.
    I did this the minute the 14th amendment was passed because I was so excited.
  2. I'm afraid of balloons.
    I don't know if something happened to me, or what. I can mentally overcome this, but balloon friction makes me cringe, and I am the one who screams when a balloon pop catches me off guard.
  3. I am finishing school to be a science teacher.
  4. I love many styles of music including classic rock, classic country, classic and modern folk, progressive rock, bluegrass, and what is referred to by some as alt-country.
    Some of my current fave artists are Coheed and Cambria, Circa Survive, Cory Branan, Neko Case, and CHVRCHES.
  5. If I didn't know better, I would only drink coffee and tea.
    I love them so much.
  6. I drive a MINI Cooper, and am a member of two separate MINI clubs.
    My MINI's name is Hammond, based both on the character in Jurassic Park, and the cohost of Top Gear. My fiancé also drives a MINI.
  7. I have a kayak.
    So that's something I do.
  8. I also love to hike.
    Although most hikers of the world would laugh at the hiking scene in North Florida.
  9. My favorite color is pink.
    But I'm not one to go overboard with it.
  10. I am known to be crafty.
    I crochet, cross stitch, and sew.
  11. One of my favorite things to do is garden, even though I have a brown thumb.
    Succulents are my best friend.
  12. I love to grill.
    My fiance's friends give him a hard time because I guess it's supposed to be the man who grills? I'm better at it, he doesn't complain.
  13. I collect those pressed pennies that you crank out of a machine at touristy places.
    My sister is a sometimes flight attendant, and sends me one on occasion. I keep them in a cigar box.
  14. I also collect shark teeth when I find them on a beach.
    I keep them in a jar on a shelf.
  15. Every week I write a letter to my aunt.
    She has OCD and checks her mailbox too much, and really loves when there's something inside it.
