My favorite writer is: Only choosing one author is as difficult as enjoying only one food. There are so many that I love to read. My top ones are (at this phase of my life) Robert Heinlein for sci-fi, William Shakespeare for introspective adventures, and George Orwell, whose thoughts never gets old, and as I get older his writing’s become more insightful.
Someone I’d like to meet: William Shakespeare
My favorite performers are: My daughter, Cecelia White, and Bill Murray
I like to spend my leisure time: Roasting my own coffee. It’s focusing and relaxing at the same time. Plus, I gain the benefits of great tasting coffee.
If I could travel any place, I’d go to: Back in time and have a long talk with my younger self!
My favorite meal is: Lamb’s in Utah, Beef Stroganoff!
As a youngster, I wanted to grow up to be: A fighter pilot. Had bad eyes, couldn’t pass eye test. All for the best — if I passed, I would never have met my wife or had my daughter.
You’ll never catch me: Watching golf!
The thing that bugs me the most is: Rudeness
My favorite movie is: Depends: they change as I age: Young me Animal House and Monty Python’s The Holy Grail; Out of College me: Clockwork Orange and Apocalypse Now; Older me: Dr. Strangelove or how I learn to stop worrying and love the bomb and Singing-in-the Rain.
Few people know: I was the lead dancer in West Side Story in college.
