did this and I just couldn't help following suit, because, how fun! Talking about my interests is fun :D
Of course, I couldn't get the script to run exactly, so I was glad that I took the time to copy and paste the answers because I took a while writting this throughout other things :)

The ability to make the same layout structure look so different with just some CSS amazed me from the first time I started playing. Of course, I started making webpages before CSS was completely popular, so I think that my yellow and purple design for love-productions was probably one of the first times I used it widely.
Now? Friends actually refer to me as the CSS goddess. :)
TV, and to a lesser extent, Movies, along with celebrity news are one of my favorite things to get buried in. My mom had to stop watching soaps when I was little when I could tell my grandma about Luke and Laura. I think that's was the start of a beautiful relationship between me and TV. :) I tend to like shows that have people I know from other shows the best. That makes sites like imdb and tv.com good friends of mine. Now my TiVo helps me enjoy all the shows that I really like without having to remember!
I knew nothing about games virtually until Eric and I were together. He had all these fun games here and there that he played, and I hadn't been exposed to much more than Solitare, SimCity (original), and some dos games like Commander Keen and Cosmo. In comes E with his Nintendo and then things like Civ II to play on his computer. That started a great stress relieving idea of games. Now we've got several game systems, and I have a great set of favorites that I watch for to buy!
- girly music:
Ahhh, girly music. When I say this, I mean a combo of girls who rock and women who indulge my senses. I knew I loved Sarah McLachlan and Natalie Imbruglia, and then I joined Silver Ingrid, a group of awesome women including zalary and _seekingclarity. They opened my eyes to a whole new world of music like Jonatha Brooke and Tori Amos, among others. I do keep adding to this list regularly, and itunes (including the music store) and my ipod are a great help in this.
I love to code. I was asked recently what editor I use when I'm coding html, and I answered honestly that I use a notepad program most of the time to hand code. I really like it, because then I know I'm writing clean code. I haven't learned a lot new in HTML lately, but I definitely have gotten better at clean coding and using more styles and less html to make things work nicely.
love, hearts, kisses, romance, ♥. It's all good stuff. The word "love" has great amounts of history for me, see the history of love-productions.com for example. I'm definitely a hopeless romantic and love goes hand in hand with that.
- movable type:
As far as online things, this is the single-most impact on my life. Movable Type is a publishing tool, and it not only powers my sites, but it powers my life! What started out as a new blogging tool turned into a way for me to give back to the community by volunteering on the forums, which turned into an amazing job. I use Movable Type to power all of my main sites, with the addition of TypePad for subsections. I've very intersted in all of the happenings related to Movable Type, right now 3.2 just came out, and that's very exciting.
- romance novels:
I grew up reading everything in sight, which ended up including teeny-bopper stories and then turned into my current love of Romance Novels in college when a friend (who lovingly dubbed me "Martian" for reasons I don't remember) had every Jude Deveraux book to date, and me and another friend read them all. It formed my love for romance novels.
- six apart:
I knew Six Apart before they were Six Apart. :) Now I'm an employee of the company. We have 3 blogging software programs, and I do technical support for TypePad, and use all 3: Movable Type, TypePad, and more lately, Live Journal. Six Apart is an amazing company, and I work with some great people, which makes for such a nice working experience.
TypePad is a Six Apart software. I am one of the leaders for the TypePad Technical Services team. I first used TypePad when it was in alpha testing, and then helped more with beta testing as well. Because Movable Type worked so well for me, I continued to use it for my sites. Then I started working at Six Apart, and began helping in TypePad. That made me realize that some of TypePad's strengths would help my site, so I started using it for Photo Albums and moblogging and intregrated that into my main site. I am in TypePad all day long now with my job, and it's quite a fun place to sit and have fun!
I first heard of weblogs in april 2000, and immediately thought it was a good idea. So I guess that makes me a long-time blogger! I enjoy creating weblogs, but I also enjoy reading them. I currently read most of my favorite blogs through a feed reader because it's the only way I find time to keep up. I also don't blog nearly as much as I'd like to, because I'm busy a lot of the time.
