Idea stolen from the Light Side...

Postby Big Pimpin » Fri Jun 16, 2006 5:35 pm

So this came from the Scottie thread below, and I think it's a great idea. Let's us learn more about our fellow FBC'ers... I'll start. And I'd love to get a lot of us to do this... :-)

Real Name: Gabe
Nickname: Haven't had one since college, and then it was "Pimp" (for obvious reasons :-b )
Age: 27 (in my prime baby!)
Status: Married, 5 years in August
Offspring: Two girls - Avery (3) and Faith (4 months)

Pets: A cat named Moose
Place of Residence: Warm and sunny Phoenix, Arizona
Occupation: Actuarial analyst (almost a credentialed actuary) at a consulting firm. We set the rates that States pay HMOs to cover their Medicaid populations.

Unattainable Dream Job: Owner/GM of the Seattle Mariners
Much more attainable dream job: World Wide Partner in my firm
Places I want to visit before I'm old: Australia/New Zealand, the Mediterranean (Italy especially), Fiji, every MLB stadium, Daytona, and Bristol (Thunder Valley!)
Hobbies and Interests: Anything sports related, mostly baseball and NASCAR, playing golf
Best Sports Moment: Making my Senior Nationals cut in the 1000 Free (swimming ;-) ) when I was 15.
Worst Sports Moment: Making my Olympic Trials cut in the summer of 1995 and then finding out a couple hours later that they weren't swimming that event any more.

How I ended up here: Google
Favorite Cafe Feature: Most of all, the people. But also the news, the baseball discussions, and the competition.
Cafe Pet Peeve: WHIR WHIR WHIR! Also people that aren't civil, don't respect others, and whose general negativity just annoy me. But I love this place! :-)


Anyway guys, the more the merrier. Just quote what I wrote and then put in your own stuff... ;-D
