I have been tagged by Ungodly Rant via an email list. (I am assuming I am not at liberty to change the items.)
Accent: American… Growing up outside of DC but with a father who never quite left Texas, I am now very at home in south Louisiana, yet still intelligible to others.
Booze: Gin (in tonic), but not very often.
Chore I Hate: Bills.
Dog or Cat: Cat, but it isn’t my fault. They keep adopting us.
Essential Electronics: OSX and the hardware to go with it.
Favorite Cologne(s): None.
Gold or Silver: I agree with the Rant, “either one is welcome in my safe deposit box… gold is over $600 an ounce right now, and silver has doubled in price in the past year”
Hometown: Montgomery Village, MD
Insomnia: Thank the Lord (and two very active kids) no.
Job Title: Director & Assoc. Prof.
Kids: Two great kids: Girl 8 and Boy 2.
Living arrangements: A house an hour from the office. The benefit: I feel like I am getting “away” from the office when I am home. The drawback: It is an hour from my office. Next abode: Living in a dorm?
Most admirable trait: Willing to lend a hand at anything.
Number of sexual partners: 1 (Who decided on these questions? Not I!)
Overnight hospital stays: A few.
Phobias: Hmm. Not many. I am not the best at heights, but certainly no real problems.
Quote: “There are a good many fools who call me a friend,
and also a good many friends who call me a fool.” G. K. Chesterton
Religion: Christian–Episcopalian now, but Presbyterian in youth.
Siblings: 1 brother 5 years older than I.
Time I wake up: 6 am, or whenever the kids kick me in the head.
Unusual talent or skill: I was the MD 4h state champion poultry judge (my brother came in 2nd in the nation; I was a mere 12 or 14th, I forget which).
Vegetable I refuse to eat: Asparagus
Worst habit: Wasting time on the computer.
X-rays: Last? Elbow. And just about everything else at one time or another, including a barium enema. Don’t go there.
Yummy foods I make: Rice pudding. But I seem to be the only one who likes to eat it. Steak on the grill: marinate it in Worcestershire sauce and coat it in Tony Chachere’s seasoning. Oh yeah baby!
Zodiac sign: Virgo
