Poll, kind of not really

Tell me something completely random and interesting about you.  Preferably something we don't already "know."

I'm always dancing.  I dance while I clean.  I dance while I cook and do dishes.  I dance in the car.  I dance in the shower.  I'm dancing right now while I type this.  I dance in the grocery store to embarrass FI.  He swears sometimes I dance in my sleep.

I'm running to the store, so you guys better have some good tidbits for me when I get back!

ETA:  Lurkers, this would be a FABULOUS post for you to tell us a little about yourselves ;)

    I'm a freak for classical music. Honest, I have a HUGE collection and listen to it all the time, much to Jay's general irritation ;)

    I can say the alphabet backwards. My grandmother taught my mom and her sisters to do it when they were kids. As a result, all of my first cousins on my mom's side can do it too. That's not particularly interesting...

    I want to get back into the foodservice industry in some capacity. My first love (as far as jobs go) is bartending, but I also used to work in a bakery. I would love to be a baker, or a bartender again. But the hours and the money at my current job are too good to give up.

    I'm a singer, but I never really sing.  I don't sing in the shower or in front of other people unless it's more like actual performing.  I do sing in my car, but not in front of people.

    I think it's because I don't want to be labeled as a show off.

    When I do sing random little things, I don't sing them well on purpose.

    I sing a lot too Sucrets.  However, I really should NOT do that.

    Edit:  I mean the "too" as in, in addition to dancing, because you said you DON'T sing a lot.  For clarity.

    I want to start making soaps and other products at home.  Wonder what the rules are about selling that stuff.  Don't know if it is as regulated as selling food products.

    My H despises the french for some reason.  He was pissed when I made him go see Les Mis because I was playing in the orchestra for it, but he sat through it.  It was when we first started dating, though.

    I have an irrational fear of burning the roof of my mouth, so I tend to avoid hot liquids such as coffee, tea, and most soups.

    I am always singing or humming.  Sometimes I hum without realizing it and then have to think about what song it is.  The other day I was humming "Strangers in the Night" and it even took me a minute or two to figure out what it was after I realized I was humming.

    Oh my God! Exactly!  I was flipping through the Les Mis libretto and he called me a "sympathizer".  The man has never been to the country or interacted with anyone of the nationality but maintains his "they'd be speaking German if not for us.  The least they can do is be thankful" mentality

    I blush a lot. Pretty much anytime I see someone I know in public, with the exception of my nearest and dearest. It gets pretty tiresome at work when my boss stops by daily.

    I may have already used this one way back, but when I was four, I was fluent in Mandarin Chinese because my parents worked at the Embassy in Beijing and my Chinese nanny and I taught each other our respective languages. My parents' favorite story to tell about me is when we got back, we went to Dollywood and I somehow got a little left behind so I ran through Dollywood yelling "Wait for me!" in Mandarin.

    And I've been on the Great Wall:

    This reminds me of the "Smoke-Free Class of 2000," which I was a part of. AFAIK, the rate of tobacco use is no lower in the Class of 2000 than the Class of 1999 or 2001.

    Sorry, I got all hung up on PnE trivia ;)

    Delibes, Prokofiev, Debussy, Rachmaninov I think :) It changes based on the mood I'm in but I think Delibes is generally number 1.

    I was also once on a Nickelodeon game show...in the audience...but at the end the host picked me up and said, "Alyssa and I would like to thank...."


    Really, you had no idea you were wedding planning with SUCH a huge star.  Too bad my five minutes of fame ended before the third grade.

    I break out in hives if I have to talk in front of any group of people.  Even just going around a room and saying our names out loud. 

    I can wiggle my ears.

    I went 4 years laughing silently because my sisters laugh irritated me to no end and I was afraid mine would sound like her.  I didn't want to be compared to her IN ANY WAY AT ALL.  Then my friends started making fun of my shoulders bobbing up and down so hard from trying to hold in laughs and I finally started laughing out loud again.
