Acrostic Introductions

What would an icebreakers event be without a chance to introduce ourselves?

This thread is for those introductions! But, we're going to be creative about it - give us one fun fact about yourself starting with each letter of your name. Your facts can be as short as one word or as long as one sentence. (Bonus points if you do a sentence where every word starts with the same letter!)

For example, here's mine:
A - Addicted to Sims
R - Runs long distance
I - Investigating how humans interact with the environment
E - Eats a bagel for breakfast every day
L - Loves her dog, Sandy
L - Listening to "Good Job, Brain!"
E - Enjoys yoga and meditation

It's your choice whether you do just your first or last (HOL) name, both, or a nickname! Post your introductions below!
