Eight People I have to Invite to Do This Meme:
If you haven't been invited, consider yourself invited because I have no IDEA who hasn't already been "tagged."

Can you see a pattern to some of those?I am a huge Harry Potter and Star Wars fan!!!! I am also a Lord of the Rings fan, but I read/watch more fanfiction than the actual books/movies.

I've never read a Harry Potter book. I thought they were for kids, but so many adults have read and loved them. I'm a big Star Wars fan, too. Luke's middle name was going to be Skywalker, but we decided not to do that at the last minute because we were afraid he'd get teased at school because of it. Now I wish we had done it because it'd have been totally cool!!

I miss hiking so much, too, and can't wait to get back on the trails.

Sorry I'm just getting myself together! I've been meaning to comment on this for ages!

Thanks for doing my meme - it's been fun finding our more about you.

Wayne is a massive Harry Potter fan as well. He has been known to pull sickie's from work and stay home to finish!
