A word or phrase that describes me: Iconoclastic, witty
Favorite Book and Movie: Both of these are hard to answer as I am a prolific reader and enjoy movies. I would have to say Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier is my favorite piece of literature. “Unforgiven” would probably rate as my favorite movie although “The Cowboys” and “Kelly’s Heroes” rank near the top.
