Oh brotherI saw a post on John Depoe's blog today where he listed eight random facts about himself. Since I haven't made a post in awhile (yes I'm still slowly working through The God Delusion) I figured I'd also post eight random facts about me:

  • I'm a huge Simpsons fan (I have a Simpsons trivia calendar on my desk) but haven't seen the Simpsons Movie.
  • I'm working through Biola's Certificate in Christian Apologetics. I submitted my first module recently. Though I have a Masters degree from Tyndale Seminary I'd love to go back to school someday to earn a second Masters and eventually a PhD.
  • My favorite band in high school / university was The Ramones. I own every studio album they ever released plus several live CDs and collections.
  • Although I've generally been quite healthy throughout my life, I've had gastroenteritis, pneumonia, mononucleosis, shingles, had an adenoidectomy, and have corneal edema.
  • I was an agnostic (occasionally atheist depending on my mood) for the first 22 years of my life. I was as surprised as anyone when that changed.
  • I enjoy many diverse web comics, including Penny Arcade, xkcd, Savage Chickens, Sinfest, Nemu Nemu, Ctrl-Alt-Del, and Activities for Rainy Days.
  • Although I don't play as often (or as hardcore) as I used to, I enjoy video games. I own a Wii and a DS. Nintendo FTW!
  • I used to write music using an antiquated DOS program (and still try every few months or so, usually unsuccessfully), but I'm really self-conscious about my songs so I can count on one hand the number of people who have heard any of them. In total I have about 60 finished songs of varying quality.
