Favorite Breakfast Spot
This has recently changed to Green Egg Cafe in Northern Liberties!

Signature Drink
Ice cold Miller Lite. Plain and simple. . The colder the better and never in a glass when long necks are around. NEVER!

Strap down the boobies- make sure they don’t move. Double up the bra if you have !

Best Running Song
Mr. Brightside by  The Killers.

Coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss”

Favorite Quote  — Looking at picture of prior students:  “The world is their oyster. They believe they’re destined for great things, just like many of you. Their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because you see, gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen. You hear it?… Carpe… Hear it?… Carpe. Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary. “  John Keating of Dead Poets Society
