1. I'm sort of a beer snob. My favorites are Henry Weinhards, Smithwicks, Sam Adams, Dos Equis, and now Land Shark Lager. I really can't stand Budweiser, MGD, Coors, etc.
2. I've only been apprehended or detained by "the authorities" twice. The first time was in Guam. The second time was in Virginia. Those are each stories for later blog posts.
3. My favorite place to go on vacation is Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. Our family has a condo and a boat up there. During our last shore duty in DC, we went up to the lake for about a week each summer.
timeshare resort in Orlando (see trip advisor reviews here). They've got a big pirate ship made out of foam rubber with four little-kid water slides going out in different directions. The staff all wear pirate-themed outfits and take the kids on treasure hunts around the campus, etc. Each time we've gone there, we've spent most of our time just enjoying the resort and then devote one day to Disney.
5. I'm always intrigued by stories about time-travel. I was in like 3rd or 4th grade when The Final Countdown came out in theaters. Then in like 5th and 6th grade one of my favorite movies was Time Bandits. Then of course there was the Back to the Future trilogy and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. More recently there was Timeline, Frequency, and Deja Vu.
Although they didn't involve time travel per se, the first and third Highlander movies held my interest with a similar sort of fascination. (Aside: I like to just ignore the second Highlander movie and pretend it didn't exist. That was horrible.)
Two of my most recent favorites along this theme were an excellent book, the Time Traveler's Wife, and an NBC TV series, the Journeyman. I was excited to see that Time Traveler's Wife is in production being filmed as a movie. Unfortunately, the Journeyman just sort of stopped during the writer's strike and it never started up again. They used to have the full episodes available to view on the NBC website, but NBC took them down.
6. Pet Peeve: People who drive around with their bass turned up so loud it reverberates through my chest cavity more than a block away. As I write this, I'm getting pretty pissed off at the people throwing a party about two blocks from here. With our windows and doors shut, the bass is vibrating our house and giving me a headache. I went outside to find out where it was coming from, and I can hear the music clear as day as if it was coming from my own house. I had to walk to the far corner of our housing area to see the flashing disco lights from a house just across the bike path / just outside our neighborhood.
