I Have Always Been a Ham.

I'm quieter and more reserved than I was as a little kid, but my hamminess runs deep. People who don't know me well are always surprised when it emerges. But it's there: I love to get up on stage and sing, I love dressing up in outlandish costumes, and I love getting up to all manner of incredibly nerdy mischief. I am a natural mimic, and it often emerges involuntarily - if I'm telling a story about someone with a distinctive voice or manner, I instantly slip into character. Sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing it until other people respond. If I weren't an academic, I'd probably be a performer. If I can find a way to combine the two, so much the better.
