Why thank you!
My two finest personality traits -- this is hard because I'm my own worst critic (aren't we all?). Hmmm...well, I feel that open-mindedness is one of the most important goals for which to strive, so I take this seriously. I also have a wide variety of interests, academic and otherwise -- needless to say I spend lots of time in the academic library and on the ol' webz.
One regrettable personality trait is that my feelings get hurt easily, though I try really hard not to show it. Of course, my sensitivity could be what led me to veganism, so perhaps it isn't all bad. I also get really cranky when I'm hungry.
Oh wow -- not sure if I can name the happiest and saddest moments ever, because there have been a lot of moments! In the somewhat recent past, the saddest moment was probably when I was working at a veterinary clinic and I witnessed animal euthanasia for the first time. It absolutely devastated me. I'm sure my happiest moment had something to do with C, but there are just too many to choose from! Probably the first time he said "I love you."

Nope! No criminal record. Not even a speeding ticket! (Knock on wood...)

Hahaha! I suppose I could visit the Yakov Smirnoff Theater whenever I felt like it, but I have no desire to check it out. Branson's not really my thing. Though I must say, the drive into Branson is absolutely beautiful, especially in the fall. Lots of rolling hills.
No, my tongue has never gotten stuck when I've touched it to my nose, but I have a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder that causes my jaw to lock when I yawn the wrong way. It then snaps shut when I close my mouth. And it hurts like the dickens.
My dogs' names are Vinny and Sam. My cat's name is Abbie. And they are all so darn cute!!!

Describe your dream job.
Definitely a cabin in the woods. A straw hut on the beach would be quite awesome, but I just love the idea of curling up on a couch in front of the fireplace in a wooden cabin, with a light snow coming down outside. Now I want to read some Thoreau!
My dream job would be to work for a no-kill animal rescue organization as a veterinary technician. I would also want to be a member of a team that removes abused and neglected animals from their current locations and brings them to sanctuaries.

I can't honestly say I've ever scrubbed a walrus's back with a loofa, but given the opportunity, I would absolutely do this.
Oh geez, I have no idea. I've probably thought about what it might be like to count to a very high number, but this process probably seemed so tedious that I'm sure I didn't think about it for long.
In general, literature is more like the antidote for brain poison. Of course, when it comes to controversial literature, perceived toxicity or healing qualities all depends on one's political and religious perspectives. Sigh...isn't this always the case. lol.
Who DID let the dogs out?? We may never know.

In the last year, having taught four sections of freshman composition at the university as part of my graduate assistantship, I learned that I do not want to devote my career to teaching in an academic setting.
In the last five years, I have learned a lot about who I am as a person, primarily in terms of my beliefs, values, and goals.
In the last ten years, I have learned how to conquer personal obstacles that have been particularly difficult to deal with.
Can't recall that scenario ever actually happening (though it would indeed be quite a sight to behold!), and I can't really answer in the hypothetical sense because I'm not quite sure what it means to "hit the mat." It sounds like a reference to contact sports, and for my 5'4", 103-lb self, this would be far too dangerous an undertaking.
