7 random meme things

I got tagged twice with the 7 random facts meme. I know everyone else has already done it which just means that I don't have to tag any other person and I don't have to repost the rules -- maybe random fact one should be: if I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it my way.

1. I share a birthday with the following people:
Emily Bronte 1818
Henry Ford 1863
Arnold Schwarzenegger 1947
Delta Burke 1956
Lawrence Fishburn 1961
Alton Brown 1962
Lisa Kudrow 1963
Tom Green 1971
Hilary Swank 1974
Jaime Pressly 1977

2. So I'm a big fag, right? I knit; I love color; I like to cook; I "care" about others; I'm totally into gay culture and big gay events; etc. But I'm also good with really butch things like building, fixing, waxing (the car not my legs).

3. Along those same lines: I love drag queens. DQs totally crack me up. I used to DJ for a drag show and I used to dress a DQ. I love going to pageants and shows even though I don't do it much lately -- bars are too smokey and I haven't been a non-smoker long enough to resist the cigarettes.

4. I am a foodie! I have been cooking since I was old enough to follow directions and not burn myself -- about 8 years old. Whenever I am planning a trip I think about the local food that I want to sample. Tony constantly reminds me: it all comes down to food for you, doesn't it? Yes. it. does!

5. I have a pet snake. She's a Ball Python. I got her in 1998 when she was just a baby. Now she is full grown at about 4.5 feet long.

6. I am a total nerd for Harry Potter. I am counting the days until book 7 comes out. I know that it will be both a joyous day and a day of mourning since it is the final book in the series. I identify with HP being a wizard myself. Well, maybe that last bit was just a childhood fantasy.

7. I am really into knitting lace right now. The problem with lace projects is that I have no use for lacy objects.

In lacy knitting news: Swallowtail is done! and thanks to Marianne it is blocked and ready for . . . well, whatever I decide to do with it. I'll get pictures eventually.

I so relate to #4...what's your snake's name?
I think you're an exceptional guy.

I also can relate to #4, and I would be more than happy to take some of that lace off your hands. I am very helpful that way.

You did a better job of this than I did! I had a very hard time coming up with random things about myself that I haven't already blathered on about endlessly. Nice job.

Love Harry Potter!!!!!
