Accent_ Unremarkablly midwestern. I refuse to develop a southern drawl (y'all).
Booze_ If I'm drinking hard liquor, I'll take whiskey. I drink lots of different beer, but you'll typically find me drinking Guinness, Shiner Bock, or Budweiser, depending on how flush I am. Sadly, I can't get my favorite, Boulevard Wheat, down here in Houston.
Chore I Hate_ Laundry. I can't seem to make a dent in that large pile of clothes.
Dog or Cat_ Neither. A dog is quite possibly in my (not so near) future.
Essential Electronics_ Computer + internet access. Don't really need much more.
Favorite Cologne_ I don't wear cologne much.
Gold or Silver_ Silver
Hometown_ St. Louis, MO
Insomnia_ Once a week or so. Thanks to a flexible work schedule, I keep weird sleep hours, and if I sleep in, it means that I'm not ready for bed until 3 am or so. The cycle gets vicious pretty quickly. I'm trying to work on that. . .
Job Title_ Indentured servant (Grad student)
Kids_ No. I try to act like one as much as possible, though. This means lots of juice boxes and naps.
Living arrangements_ Small apartment
Most admirable traits_ Intelligence, easy-going-ness, ability to spot holes in your arguments from a mile away.
Overnight hospital stays_ When I was born, I suppose.
Phobias_ No irrational fears. Just the everyday, run of the mill stuff like peak oil, overpopulation, unsustainable growth, etc.
Quote_ "Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, "Yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up must come down, down, down. Amen!" If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it." -- Dan Barker
Time I wake up_ 9_30 or so. Like I said, my schedule's flexible, so I generally come in late and stay late.
Unusual talent or skill_ Mad kung-fu skillz.
Vegetable I love_ Terri Schiavo. (tasteless?)
Worst habit_ Procrastination
X-rays: Just teeth
Yummy foods I make_ Chicken pasta, chili mac, and I work a mean grill.
Zodiac sign_ Scorpio. Does anyone seriously think these matter? I think astrologers and anyone else who pimps this kind of bullshit should die in a fire. I think the people who are dumb enough to believe it should suffer the same fate. (I suppose that would also solve our overpopulation problem, right?)
