I am sure a lot of the people on my f-list caught the Rachel reference in my last entry. If not, shame on you. ;) I figured I should start off the Things I Like posts with one of the first things that brought me online: Animorphs.

I remember when I first discovered Animorphs in fifth grade. I was
reading my sister's Nickelodeon Magazine when I came across an excerpt
of the first chapter of The Invasion. I was hooked. I wanted to
read more, and I begged, begged my mom to get me the first book at the
next scholastic book fair. From that point on, I waited for new books to
come out every-other-month with religious ferver.

Tobias was my favorite character at first, but I loved Erek King and
Jara Hamee, too. It was around book 14 or so that I first ventured
online to see what else I could learn about the series, find spoilers
and read more from K.A.Applegate. I even designed my own characters,
combining a love for dolphins with an exciting plot premise involving an
alien princess. I researched it extensively and created an entire
outline, complete with illustrations. It. Was. Awesome.

And then I discovered there was a whole world of fans online. As a nerdy
little 14 year old, I became a regular at MORPHZ and and met other
fans. In fact, as corny as it is, a group of them turned into life-long

So there it is. I guess, in a way, it's because of Animorphs that I even
discovered how valuable a tool the internet is. Also, if I were an
animorph, my battle morph would totally be a wolf.

What would yours be?

Good Morning!
