Jim Biggins

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.
