For me, I think my decision will be made most real when I burn, with the requisite bacchanalian chanting, all the letters, documents, etc. the other schools sent me. I just need to set a date.
"I'm a genius, but I'm a misunderstood genius."
"What's misunderstood about you?"
"Nobody thinks I'm a genius."

Don't know what you mean by 'Devon', so I'm guessing I didn't go there. :)

But yes, you have found a fellow Philly classmate. I think I met one other during ASW.

I currently live in Philadelphia (I attend Drexel University), and finished up my last 3 years of high school an hour or so out of Philadelphia (Pottstown, PA).

devon prep..it's a boys' school in devon, pa, and its students kind of hang out with the girls from my high school.  i go to psu but i live in king of prussia.  cool!

I'm the guy from Devon...also a big Sixers fan.  I'd be on this thread more often if I didn't get a surprise acceptance from Columbia when I got home from ASW.  I'll be visiting there Monday, but Chicago will be tough to top.

Put up or shut up, right?

1. What is your user name and why did you choose it?  It was sillyberry, which is an AOL name of mine from about 1997.  I think "maroonberry" should be obvious.   :)

2. Where were you born?  Dallas, TX

3. Do you like to drive?  Love it.  See #2.  Driving totally clears my head.

4. Favorite type of food?  Lately I'm all about Persian foods.  But pretty much all types of ethnic food makes me happy.

5. Favorite beverage?  Mojitos on the patio in summer.

6. If you could only eat one kind of cereal for the rest of your life, what would it be?  Life.  Good with or without milk.

7. What book have you read the most times?  The Thorn Birds.  And I cry every damn time.

8. Favorite TV channel?  Bravo, mostly because they constantly run marathons of shows I like.

9. Favorite movies?  When Harry Met Sally, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Sweet Home Alabama, assorted fluff

10. What Hollywood star would play you in a movie about your life?  Sandra Bullock.  I like to think we share a spunky brunette thing.

11. Which single store would you choose to max out your credit cards?  Williams-Sonoma.  ::swoon::

12. Are you willing to sing karaoke with me?  I am me, but yes.  Drunk karaoke is one of life's great pleasures.

13. What is your dream vacation?  A yacht, the Greek islands, and a great group of friends.

14. What is your favorite article of clothing?  My Old Navy yoga pants.  Great for sleeping or running errands!

15. What is your favorite song playing on the radio right now?  Another Beer in Mexico.  (Yes, I'm a big fan of country)

16. Do you need coffee in the morning to be a tolerable human being?  Nope.  I really only drink coffee after fancy dinners.

17. Can you cook?  If so, what's your best dish?  Yes.  A mild white fish (usually tilapia) with a beurre blanc sauce and angel hair pasta and asparagus.  Delish.

18. What is your favorite sports team?  What sports team do you hate the most?  Dallas Mavericks. San Antonio Spurs.  Duncan can suck it.

19: What is your favorite board game?  Trivial Pursuit.  If anyone else thinks playing board games and drinking red wine sounds like a good time, let me know so we can be BFF.

20: How excited are you to have fun die?  Totally and completely excited.  I'm already started practicing being dull.

1. What is your user name and why did you choose it?

Well, cause I wanted to be anonymous at first.

Sad story: When I first signed up, I was shocked that such a common username was available. It was only a couple weeks later than I realized I had spelled anonymous wrong. :(

2. Where were you born?

Hartford, Connecticut

3. Do you like to drive?

I don't even have a license yet! When I started college, I was too young to have anything more than a learners permit in Pennsylvania... and then I didn't need a car in Philly, so I never bothered to get a license. I do know how to drive though, so I'm planning on taking the test sometime soon, since I'm guessing I will need a car in Chicago.

That being said, I don't LIKE to drive.

4. Favorite type of food?

Can't narrow it down. I'm more likely to appreciate a good dish than an actual type of food.

For some reason I can't stand Greek food though. Probably just haven't come across the right dish.

5. Favorite beverage?

Shifts a lot. Right now I'm on a Green Tea bent... but I'm consistently a sucker for something with vodka in it.

6. If you could only eat one kind of cereal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Cinnamon Toast Crunch

7. What book have you read the most times?

Probably 'The Cat in the Hat', followed closely by 'America: The Book'.

Most of the time, I read a book once or twice and move on.

8. Favorite TV channel?

No one channel stands out above the rest.

9. Favorite movies?

Huge movie fan. HUGE.

Favorite movies of 2006: 'Pan's Labyrinth', 'Children of Men', 'Thank You for Smoking', 'Stranger than Fiction', and 'Tristam Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story'.

Favorite movies of all-time (a partial list): 'Groundhog Day', 'Dr. Strangelove', 'The Maltese Falcon', 'The Great Escape', 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', 'Road to Perdition', 'Pleasantville', 'The Hustler', 'Do the Right Thing', and 'Bloodsport'. A few others, great ones at that, are probably slipping my mind.

10. What Hollywood star would play you in a movie about your life?

The coolest one. If you're looking to the past, that would clearly be Paul Newman. Don't really know about the current actor that fits the description.

Sadly, being an Indian, for accuracy's sake I gotta say Kal Penn.

11. Which single store would you choose to max out your credit cards?

Sky Mall

12. Are you willing to sing karaoke with me?

Sober?

13. What is your dream vacation?

Two months in Europe WITH MONEY. If I had to narrow it down to a single country, it would probably be Italy.

14. What is your favorite article of clothing?

Pockets.

Does that count?

15. What is your favorite song playing on the radio right now?

I don't listen to the radio. :-?

I'm also truly incompetent when it comes to music. I mean, I love music, but I don't have the patience to actually explore bands and stuff. I usually rely on my more musically inclined friends to direct me where to download stuff.

16. Do you need coffee in the morning to be a tolerable human being?

Don't drink coffee regularly.

17. Can you cook?  If so, what's your best dish?

Can't cook at all... but I plan on learning this summer! At least some stuff.

18. What is your favorite sports team?  What sports team do you hate the most?

Favorite: UConn Mens Basketall, followed closely by the Sixers
Hate: Oh so many. So, so many.

19: What is your favorite board game?

I'm sucker for the classic: Monopoly.

20: How excited are you to have fun die?

My fun died 4 years ago when I chose my current college. :)

How old do you have to be to get a license in PA?  I got my license the day I turned 16...
