What do you like most about your job?

Yes, I do volunteer IT stuff at the local headquarters.
What are some of your favorite movies?
Princess Bride, Airplane, Clue, and Blues Brothers are some favorites.
How about television shows?
I never seem to have time for TV, but I like comedies, CSI-type shows, Nova and nature stuff on PBS. The Simpsons.
Do you follow any sports?
A little bit. I'm an Iowa State Cyclones fan, and I follow the Cubs and the Bears some.
Who's your favorite superhero and why?
The Tick. Because he is nigh-invulnerable.
What is something interesting about you people may not know?
I used to be a fencer in college. And in an indirect way, I met my wife as a result of being on the fencing team.
