Hi, I'm EQB.  I assume probably most of the people around here are from FE, so you may know me from there.

What brings you to SD?  Seemed like the thing to do.  I'm always in search of other avenues to spend time on the internet...
Are you a member of other Internet fora?  If so, care to mention which one(s)?  FE.
Why did you choose your username and avatar?  Because they're the same as those I have on FE.  I'm not terribly inventive.
What is your state of life - single, married, religious, or still discerning?  Single, though in a relationship with a rather wonderful girl.
Whereabouts do you live "in real life"? (be as specific or as general as you wish!)  Charlottesville, VA.
Personality type?  I don't really buy into Myers-Brigg... 
Favorite books?  Oh, goodness.  I don't even know where to begin.  Brideshead Revisited is my favorite novel, though.  (Or Tristram Shandy.The Tempest or The Winter's Tale is my favorite play.  And I don't even think I could begin to nail down a favorite poem or poet.  (Though Eliot's Four Quartets might be the answer at the moment.)
Favorite movies?  Basically anything by Hitchcock (especially The Lady Vanishes, Vertigo, Rear Window, I Confess, and North by Northwest), Becket, The Seventh Seal, Andrei Rublev, Dr. Strangelove, Jurassic Park, etc. etc.
Favorite TV shows?  Arrested Development, Foyle's War
Favorite sports/teams  Boston Red Sox.
Have any hobbies?  I'm looking to take up fly fishing.  Other than that, I read mostly and listen to music.
Pet peeves:  Solecism and barbarism.
Fun random fact about yourself:  I don't know if it's a "fun" fact, but I'm a graduate student in English lit who specializes in 18th-century British poetry.

EDIT:  The irony of this little questionnaire?  I had a subject-verb agreement error, despite my pet peeves...  ;)
