More about lens_books


Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Gosh, I think you all already know more about me than a lot of my relatives do. *lol* I am a major geek with the degrees to back it up, but I am finding out that I really love running my Dad's farm and dairy. My grant project is on hold while I decide what to do with my life and the farm.

What other interests or hobbies do you have (other than Eliters of course)?

Computers, reading, volunteering (I tutor kids with reading difficulties)

How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?

Its my Dad's fault. *lol* He got me into this and wouldnt back off until I was as hooked as he was! It hasnt been that long since I joined. About 6 months ago, I think.

How did you pick your Eliters' Name - does it have any special significance?

Definitely. I took over my Dad's account for him so he could see folks and talk to them through me. Then he wanted me to become a TD so I did. Ergo: I inherited his account! (for those who dont know, my dad was Byron aka yeahicrackmeuptoo)

Tell us something unique or interesting about yourself that we are unlikely to know

I am totally deaf in one ear and have limited hearing in the other and wear a hearing aid that lets me hear a little bit.

What makes Eliters special?

The people. Everyone of them is special.

What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to give a try?

Gin, Dominoes, Spades and I am learning cribbage. I will eventually try more.

What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?

Gin, my Dad taught me and never "let" me win. He was the best gin player ever in real life. None of his friends would play him and swore he cheated but he was just mean and onery when it came to gin!

Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any other particular position you

I am a TD in Giny and thats enough. *lol* With farming there is some time to host but not much! Its very much a cyclical thing.

What is your proudest achievement in life?

Getting my Doctorate from M.I.T.

What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?

Having fun!

If you could offer one suggestion to improve Eliters, what would it be?

I can't think of a thing. The only suggestion I ever made in clubs was acted upon so quickly it scared me, so I keep my mouth shut unless its a very, very good idea.

If you had one wish what would it be?

I wish I had been able to spend more time with both my parents in the last few years.

If you could only use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?

The best all around fun site, gaming league and the funniest and most fun people you will ever have the joy of being a part of is Eliters.

What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event?

Has to be when Dad was still talking through me and I had no clue who he was talking to but I typed whatever he told me to. The man was funny!

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?

Being in the political club. That club is something else indeed.

What is the most embarrassing thing, that you can talk about of course

Laughing so hard that I popped a hernia.

If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?

My Dad so that I could see the world through his eyes. He loved life!

You are given five minutes to evacuate your house, the kids and pets are safe -

My laptop, my parents wedding picture, and the last package of Dad's cinnamon rolls stashed in the freezer

How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?

Driving to work, what a concept! Mainly I am thinking about what I need to do that day.

Name your three favorite movies .

Benny and Joon, Dances with Wolves, and any of the Matrix movies.

Do you have any particular heros?

Way too many! My Dad, Lincoln, Bill Gates, FDR, Carlos Santana to name a few...

What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Nachos with 3 times the cheese there should be on them. *lol*

When I grow up I want to be just like:

My Dad!

Any last words for our readers?

Like a revered member of Eliters posted in the TD club - This league is about playing games, have fun with it! Dont take life too seriously, enjoy the day, play with your friends, love your family online and off!
