Academics and Outback Steakhouse
An awesome place I've visited:
My perfect Sunday:
Sleeping-in, baking cinnamon buns for breakfast, a nature walk at Marsh Creek and/or St. Pete's, Lunch at my favorite Sushi restaurant, cocktails in West Chester (in town), and finally, relaxing on the couch while watching the latest installment of my favorite HBO series (which varies by season).
The movie I've watched the most times:
Movie: Pulp Fiction. Television Show: Family Guy.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Even the most mundane, austere, lackluster life cannot be summarized in five sentences. It takes time to understand the subtle complexities of each individual (including there life's history). Thus, it takes time to wholly understand myself and my past.
My first concert / My dream concert:
First Concert: CSNY (Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young). Favorite Concert: Roger Waters' "Dark Side of the Moon." Dream Concert: Anything by the doors when Jim was still alive.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
The intricacies of communication theory, particularly in relation to CMM (i.e. the Coordinated Management of Meaning), Media Ecology (the ways in which each medium constrains the transmission of messages), and how we use each medium/technology as a platform from which to project our identities.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Require corrective lenses. Who distinguish between a debate and an argument. And who love the world of academe.
For me, a first date no-no is:
What I would bring to show and tell:
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:

I secretly want to be:
A fighter pilot, a world renowned poet, and a professional skateboarder.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
With me as much as I want to be with them.
An infatuation of mine:
Airplanes and the physics defying art of flight.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
