3. Tell seven things about myself:

     2. I am a chocolate maniac. Don't make me fight you for that chocolate bar! I have a sword!

    5.  I've been to Central America five times on dental missions to do free dentistry on the peasant        
         campesinos.

    6.  My friends think I hallucinate and should be locked up for a spell, but really, it's just my vivid
          imagination-- honest! (But, I still don't understand why they don't see all the magical creatures
          in their forests).

    7.  I totally admire all creative people--Thank you, creative people, for creating and making this
         world a better place.
