Born- May 23rd, 1960. Yup, I’m a Gemini. Otherwise my sign probably would have been “No Parking.”
Birthplace- Cleveland, Ohio, hence my lifelong inferiority complex.
Residence- Saginaw Township, which may one day change this area’s nickname to “The Quad Cities”, since it’s darn near as populous as Midland.
Significant other- Laura. Our marriage has now lasted longer than any job I’ve ever held. And the benefits are way better!!
Bad habit- I’ll get to that in a bit.
Offspring of my loins- Marcus, smart kid, excellent baseball player, unbelievable source of pride. Connor, smart, irresistibly charming, got his mom’s good looks. Both these guys will have more dates before finishing high school than I did in a lifetime.
Favorite Country Artist- Call me shallow, but whoever looks hottest in the latest issue of Country Weekly. This week, it’s Sara Evans.
Favorite Movie- My taste is a little weird, but stuff like “World According to Garp,” “Clockwork Orange,” and “2001: A Space Odyssey” are among the few movies I’ve actually seen more than once. I think I like to leave a movie feeling puzzled, bewildered, and just a bit confused. Hey for 7 bucks a pop, they ought to guarantee all three.
Bad Habit- Yeah, yeah I’ll get to it, hold yer horses!
Favorite TV Shows- “The Daily Show” with John Stewart, and the “Colbert Report” with Stephen Colbert. I’ve heard it said that comedy is a license to tell the truth and these guys generally speak more truth than CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC combined.
Favorite Food- Free. Especially if I don’t have to help clean up. After that, I’d have to say lasagna, and Skyline Chili.
First Job (other than paper boy and cutting grass)- Working in a chemical plant in Cleveland, where I learned how badly I truly despise manual labor.
Bad Habit- Relax would you, I’ll get to it ferpetesake!
Book I’m Reading Right Now- Gulp! I have five or six I’ve bought this year, and haven’t cracked one yet. Really gotta get around to that!
Despite My Non-Violent Disposition, Person I’d Like to Smack- Simon Cowell of “American Idol.”
If I weren’t in Radio, I’d Be- On assistance. Again.
Describe Yourself in Three Words- Mediocre, carnivorous, and pliable.
Bad Habit- Procrastination.
