I love history, and I'm a huge fan of military and social history, especially from America and Europe. Most of my lists will deal with historical leaders and battles, although I also love pirates and am working on a lot of lists about them as well. Let's just say, "Talk Like a Pirate Day" is a BIG event in my house! :) Also, I'm a very "live and let live" kind of gal, but I do sometimes wear my politics of my sleeve, so if a lot of talk about the Constitution and progressive values are going to upset you...well, you've been warned.
