HOMETOWN:   Wolf Lake, IL (Population 300..counting dogs & cats)

CAREER HISTORY:   When I was in high school, my friend’s dad owned a radio station..I begged him for a job and thinking it would be awkward to reject his son’s friend, he hired me.  Since then I’ve worked in Dayton, Tulsa, St.Louis, Sacramento, Kansas City, and now Indianapolis.

FAVORITE LIVE MUSIC VENUE:   Any small intimate venue where I can sit and be sung a coffee shop.  Here in town I love the Circle Theatre and Symphony on the Prarie in the summertime!

FAVORITE CONCERT I’VE EVER BEEN TO:   Garth Brooks.  Even if you’re not a country music fan..the dude knows how to put on a show!

MOVIES:   Groundhog Day is my favorite movie of all time. I also never met a documentary I didn’t like. I recenlty got a great one from the library about asparagus farming. If you check it out (you know you want to), let me know what you think!

TELEVISION:   Seinfeld is the best show that’s ever been on television. There you have it.  The matter is settled.  Other than that.. Modern Family, The Middle, Parks & Recreation, Breaking Bad, and PBS Frontline (see previous note about my love of documentaries).

WEBSITES TO VISIT:   You mean asside from :) I’m semi addicted to Facebook and Twitter. The things people put out there for public consumption greatly amuses me.

LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:  I was named after John Lennon’s son Sean..and I once ran for political office (and lost).

FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANTS:  Bluebeard, Yats, Iozzos, Napolese.. I could go on. Seriously. That’s like asking a mother to name her favorite child :)

FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORK:  Getting up in the middle of the night.. oh wait, I thought you said “least” favorite thing.

TYPICAL BREAKFAST:   Old man Fiber cereal and coffee w/ lots of cream and fake sugar!

FAVORITE ROADTRIP FROM INDY:   Chicago. A show at 2nd City + a Portillo’s hot dog + Giordano’s pizza = a great weekend!

LIKE TO COOK?  Yeah..I’m trying to master the art of BBQ on my smoker (low and slow baby..low and slow).

PETS: A golden doodle rescue named Brady.

THREE OF MY EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS:  Coffee, Iced tea, Diet Mt. Dew (I’m very beverage centric).

THREE THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE:  1) Go the airport with no destination in mind and just buy a ticket to a random place on the spot. 2) See the Pacers win an NBA championship. 3) Learn how to change a tire (I seriously don’t know how, so if you see me on the side of 465..please stop and help).

This is fascinating. 10 years after it opened a restaurant in midtown Manhattan is still full almost every night, but profits keep going down. When they adjust for inflation, food costs, etc... profits are still (as a precentage) way off from where they should be -- especially...
It feels like I always choose the slowest line. Turns out.. I do! Read this thing that said the odds really are against you. If there are 3 lanes open, you've only got a 33% chance of picking the fastest one...meaning 2 out of every 3 times, you'll pick incorrectly...and see...

Lays is doing that "do us a flavor" thing again where they put out 4 new flavors and we pick which one sticks around. Last year they did this with Chicken & Waffles, Sriracha, and Cheesy Garlic Bread chips. Garlic bread won. This year it's yes..cappuccino flavored along with...
I've done a topic throughout this week about the "fattest" thing you've ever done ... inspired by my own story of going through the Rally's drive-thru while on my way to pick up Chinese food. I intended it to be a "funny, amusing, don't beat up on yourself..because I've done it...
We've all done a dumb thing to save money... --maybe buying something just because it's on sale --maybe opening a store credit card just to get the opening discount that day --maybe buying something dumb in bulk (like carrots..I can't eat 5lbs of carrots before they go
