    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. πŸ˜‰

    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?

    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. πŸ™‚

    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!

    I really like these kinds of intros and conversation starters… you learn so much random stuff about others. πŸ™‚

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