Self Portrait Day

I participated in Self Portrait Day today!

My portrait and answers to the questions lie below:
Peter's portrait
1). What is your first name?


2). Where do you live and what do you do there?

I live in Minneapolis, MN with my sweetie of nearly 17 years. What occupies most of my time, as Just and Beneficent Ruler of the Universe, is trying to keep things running on an even keel.

3). Where were you when you first discovered the Internet and how old were you at the time?

I was a student at the U of MN, making me about 19 or 20, and was semi-active on a couple of local BBSes which were echoed to Usenet through Fidonet. I remember when we upgraded to a 1200 baud modem and the text just screamed across the screen!

4). What is your favorite sandwich.

There is, of course, only one true sandwich. It is the Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich. Specifically, it begins with whole-grain bread. (If you can smoosh a loaf up and make something that you can repeatedly bounce off walls, you don't really want to eat it.) Next comes the peanut butter, chunky of course, and with as little sugar added as you can get away with. (But not that hippie peanut butter you have to keep in the fridge; cold peanut butter sucks.) Then the jelly, or to be more specific, the strawberry preserves. (Do not go the way of the grape jelly, those heretics will burn in everlasting damnation.)

5). On a Sunday evening I can be found ....

Catching up on what my TiVo has dutifully saved for me during the week.
