Though most of the readers of this blog likely fall into the pony prince or princess category, we still are all unique individuals with other varying interests besides horses. With this post, I would love to get an idea of the ‘you’ that falls outside of the realm of being an equestrian.
So I ask- besides horses, what topics bring out the gleam in your eye? What gets you excited besides soft muzzles and the smell of a barn?
For me, I fall fairly confidently into the realm of nerdiness. Here are three things that will make me bounce in my seat with enthusiasm:
Because VELOCIRAPTORS. I have weekly, sometimes nightly nightmares about velociraptors (last night I was matched up with a velociraptor – Intercollegiate Dressage style- that could talk and had to battle it to the death with only a syringe in hand, ya I know I’m weird) but that only adds to my obsession with all things Jurassic Park. I’ve mentioned it before, but JUNE 12 PLEASE HURRY UP.
I grew up with these books and the sadly for me, the obsession never faded. I’m embarrassed to admit that I own two Snitch necklaces and these DVD’s are on constant rotation in my video collection. I is sad adult.
A decidedly more adult obsession, but a fervent obsession nonetheless. When talking to the husband I’ve stopped referring to the series by name and just call them “my books”. I talk about Diana (as in Diana Gabaldon, the author) as if we are bff’s. I convinced the husband that we should include a pilgrimage to Culloden Battlefield as part of our honeymoon, even though the place is as far away from romantic as a place can be. It could be argued that I have spent more time reading the series than riding, and with a new book in progress, so thankfully the preocupation is not over yet.
So friends, do tell? Besides horses, what gets you excited?
