I got tagged again. I really do think these are fun, so I'm going to do it. First, I'd like to tell you a little bit about the person who tagged me, my friend/roommate Melissa. We met at Deseret Book in September 2001. She started working there the week of 9/11. In fact, I think it was that very day...? We became friends pretty quickly, a friendship based on our love for deep, heated conversations based on our opinions on everything. She's a great conversationalist.

Melissa's is an interesting personality. She is very opinionated, and often shares those opinions with real force (I say this with love), which might make a person think that she's a tough cookie. But the truth is, she's one of the kindest most generous people I know. She takes good care of the people she cares about, and if I ever need help with something, I know that I can go to her, which is very nice. And, she has a strong, almost irrational sense of loyalty. Case in point - she fell in love with Pierce Brosnan back in the 80s during his Remington Steele days, and has not changed her mind about him since. She saw all of his James Bond movies, and has boycotted them since he was dumped for Daniel Craig. The James Bond franchise is now dead to her. As ridiculous as this may seem, it's a comfort to a friend. I can feel pretty sure that she'll never turn her back on me.

On with the tag. Questions A-Z:

A-Attached or Single: Attached to what? If we're talking about my Coldplay cd, then yes, very.

U-Unknown fact about me: I really don't think that I'm as nice as people seem to think I am. I'm too much of an introvert.
