About Me

Name: Rebecca in real life. I go by Rivka online, though.

Age: 35

Height: 5'2"

Weight: About 115 pounds, give or take. I have started putting on weight in my "old" age.

Hair: A very boring, mousy brown. Usually in need of cutting.

Eyes: Hazel. But they often change color to whatever I'm wearing, which is rather nice :)

Birthplace: Michigan. Cold. Very cold.

Current Place of Residence: Southern California. CA is a wonderful place to live. No snow.

Marital Status: Married. And he makes computer games. That's all you get to know about him.

Job: I have a Masters in Library and Information Science, but I currently work as a web programmer.

Religion: I've been touched by his noodley appendage. Have you?

Things That I Like: X-men, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Sandman, Spiderman, old movies, home decorating shows, Robot Chicken, South Park, Penny-Arcade.com, World of Warcraft, board games that my husband forces me to play, spending too much time on the computer, cute guys, and my senile, neurotic cat. And lately, I've been really big into quilting!


Food: Processed cheese in almost any form. EZ Cheese. Macaroni and cheese. Cheddar and sour cream potato chips. Cheese whiz on corn dogs. Mmm....I'm hungry now.

Drink: Cherry Diet Rite. It's all I drink. Literally.

TV Show: Ever? Probably Star Trek, the original series (although Firefly is a very close second). Currently I watch Smallville, Lost, Heroes, and a bunch of bad reality shows (The Amazing Race, America's Next Top Model, Project Runway).

Movie: Lord of the Rings, of course! Others include Planet of the Apes (original), Soylent Green (no, I don't have a thing for Chuck Heston. Really.), Somewhere in Time, 12 Monkeys, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, Horatio Hornblower (TV movies. Ioan Gruffudd is a hottie), and a bunch of others I can't think of right now.

Actor: I tend to pick my favorite actors based on looks. So...here's my current "List of 5": Hugh Jackman, Nathan Fillion, David Boreanaz, Tom Welling, and Johnny Depp.

Actress: Few actresses impress me. I can tolerate Reese Witherspoon and Hilary Swank, and um...well, that's really all I can think of. And, I kind of have to admit to having a girl-crush on Eliza Dushku. She's hot, yo.

Music: Whatever I can sing well on Rock Band.

Book: I read almost constantly, and my favorites change a lot. The one book that always stays near the top is Stephen King's The Stand. Stuff I've read lately: the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, the Sandman graphic novels by Neil Gaiman, and all the Harry Potter books.

Historical Figure: Hmm. Queen Elizabeth I, I think. She was a strong woman who oversaw a powerful nation, and didn't put up with crap from anybody.

Cartoon Character: Scooby-doo, without a doubt. I loved him long before he came back in popularity. And He-man is my second favorite. They need to release that on DVD.

Cereal: I've gotten so boring and healthy lately. Usually I eat Total, or Grape Nuts.

Holiday: Halloween! Milky Ways galore! And I don't give any to the trick-or-treaters, heh, heh.

Sport to Watch: I. Don't. Ever. Watch. Sports. Unless the Red Wings are vying for the Stanley Cup. I may make an exception then.

Sport to Play: You're joking, right?

Movie Soundtrack: Conan the Barbarian. Go ahead and laugh, but it's really awesome music. Amadeus and Braveheart are pretty good, too. And of course, the Lord of the Rings soundtracks!

Magazine: Entertainment Weekly, and the hordes of gaming magazines that people send my husband for free.

Comic Book: Anything X-men related. I own several hundred comic books, and I've only read like 10% of them. And don't forget Neil Gaiman's Sandman!

Store: I'm really not big into shopping, just for shopping's sake. The only places that can get me excited are the local comic book store, or Barnes & Noble.

Song: Beethoven's 9th Symphony. Or Aha's Take on Me. It's hard to choose.

Disney Movie: Beauty and the Beast, hands down. It's always been my favorite fairy tale. I even made a site devoted to it.

Disney Character: Hmm. I've always been partial to the prince from Beauty and the Beast. Reddish-brown hair, blue eyes...yummy!

Classic TV Show: Star Trek, of course. And don't forget Manimal.

Odds & Ends:

Sesame Street or the Muppets?: Muppets. Animal and Gonzo rock the casbah. I do like Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street, though.

Super Powers: Getting easily pissed off. And these questions are starting to piss me off...

Biggest Fears: Spiders. Heights. Water (can't swim). Dark alleys. Men who shout. George W. Bush. The return of 80's fru-fru bangs.

Pop or Soda?: I'm from Michigan. Of course it's pop. People stare at me blankly when I say that here in CA, so I've had to start saying soda. Sacrilege!

If you want to know anything else about me, contact me. I probably won't answer, but you never know...


Who am I? A person that spends far too much time on the computer, either reading forums and websites, or programming for fun. I need a life.
