Favorite Baseball Team:
I liked playing summer softball in the ND co-rec league, does that count? I now run (very very slowly) a few miles a few days a week.
I wear khakis and polos for work, so I dress up as rarely as possible, but when forced to, I clean up alright.
Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq:
I enjoy lemonade, especially during the summer, and a wide variety of beer. I mainly drink water and tea these days, though.
I'm pretty conservative. I tend to think of myself as a moderate conservative, but most people scoff at that notion and a recent Political Compass score of Economic Left/Right: 4.12 & Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 3.03 makes me think I'm less "moderate" than I used to be. In my academia environment I'm often perceived (sometimes jokingly, oftentimes not) to be hyper-omgwtfbbq-right-wing; but so would anyone who self-identifies as even "questioningly conservative". I would not be averse to voting for Democrats who were pro-life, pro-military, and generally moderate. Several of the DINOs that the DNC ran in the 2006 election to gain seats in "Red States" appealed to me. I do have worries, however, that even if they are worthy candidates to support that the power they give their national party (the party of Pelosi, et al.) is not worth it.
Roman Catholic, having recently returned to the Church after years of being practically non-practicing (mostly due to my own faults - laziness, selfishness, and inability to get over the resentment I feel against the Church for Her pie-in-the-sky stance on Catholic education). Nonetheless, in my heart of hearts, I always truly believed in this quote: "Ecumenism cannot be undertaken at the expense of the truth." -- Msgr. Georg Gaenswein
Baroque and Classical 90's-to-modern alt rock ... though I don't think it's groundbreaking or "great" music, I enjoy listening to it. Late 50's through early 70's rock.
Favorite Quote from an ND Coach:
"If you're old and you lose, they say you're outmoded. If you're young and you lose, they say you're green. So don't lose." - Terry Brennan
What else do you want us all to know:
Inspired by the-poster-formerly-known-as-FNB's crusade against the phrase "try and", I declare my personal jihad against ignoring the possessive with a gerund. My trying to eliminate this linguistic abuse may make me seem like a dick, sorry in advance.
