13 Things About Me:

1.  I was named after Santa Claus.

2.  I started playing piano at the age of 5, but I haven't played much in the past few years.

3.  I'm a home grown Marylander.  Old Bay Seasoning, blue crabs, shrimp - yes, please!

4.  In high school I was on the mock trial team and the school newspaper.  My nerd credentials are well established.

5.  I have a bachelors degree in chemistry from Salisbury University and a masters degree in chemistry from Iowa State University.

6.  I'm a history buff.  I love visiting national parks, national historic sites, and reading about history.

7.  I can't go into a bookstore without buying a book...or two...or ten.  Let's face it, I should probably buy stock in Barnes and Noble for the amount of business they receive from me.  Check out some of my favorite books.

8.  I still have the Polaroid camera my uncle gave me for Christmas when I was in 5th grade.

9.  I love the water - swimming, kayaking, canoeing, etc.

10.  I also examine patent applications for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

11.  For me, heaven is relaxing with a glass of Italian wine and the latest novel by Diana Gabaldon.

12.  I enjoy playing tricks on my cat, Clinger (named after the M*A*S*H character, Klinger).  My previous cats were named BJ Hunnicutt and Hotlips Houlihan.  Notice a theme?

13.  When it comes to the age old war of PC vs. Mac, I'm on Team Apple.
