    First off...There is nothing closeted about you! You are a full-fledged scifi geek...come on i have seen the bumper stickers to prove it! Secondly I was amazed that I knew most of the things on the list except for the Favorite book which is very interesting to me...

    I might have to do one of these myself. Of course i don't even respond to those myspace tag your it reveal things about thing-a-ma-bobers...

  4. Closeted to everyone except those nearest and dearest to me, lol...

    Did you really know most of the things? I know there were at least a few you didn't know. I guess that proves that I'm extremely open to my friends... or that there are only certain things I will reveal about myself...
