What is something not many people know about you?
Well, I fenced in high school (epee), played rugby in college for Kutztown University, did some duathlons (4th place top finish), a few dozen bike races (5th place top finish), a few triathlons (1st in AG top finish), and some running races (5k-50k and 3rd place top finish). But, if you read my now defunct running blog, you would know those things already.

What is it?
I have a love for stuffed animals.
Yes, you heard that right! I really do and I don't know where it began. I can only think of two that I had growing up- a stuffed Garfield, and a little stuffed dog. Maybe it came to life when we were building our son's nursery back in 2003-4. We did a jungle theme and I went to the store without telling jane where I was going. I ended up at Toys-R-Us and bought several stuffed animals! An elephant, a jaguar, a tiger (named Hobbes that we still have), a lion and a few monkeys, and possibly even more...I (we) used to play with them often!
But before then, early in our relationship, Jane bought me a Thumper as joke. We fought over possession of that rabbit often. It even led to our possibly greatest Disney moment ever: meeting Thumper! Even now, I torture our cat, my kids, and my wife with them. Even my students at school.

So that's it.
I. Love. Stuffed animals.
