Dr. Burke's Personal Information
Tennis (Djokovic, beware!), working out (I'm huge), watching football (particularly the Washington Redskins - I'm am just too old to play - I think some of them are too!), watching baseball (I am the rare person that likes both the Yankees and Red Sox. I also like the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League), playing softball (even though it has been years since I played), playing golf (it's ugly, but I try) and attempting to play racquetball (I need to stop playing it like tennis!)
In order of enjoyment: comedies (my favorite movie is entitled It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and I love almost anything by Mel Brooks), musicals (who doesn't love The Wizard of Oz?), romantic-comedies (I will cry during the opening credits), and horror (I am still terrified over The Exorcist) . If others talk me into it, I'll watch just about anything thereafter.
Since I play the drums (in one of the pictures below), I pretty much like anything that has drum solos (not that I can play them, but I certainly like to hear them. Other than that, I enjoy musicals, oldies (50's and 60's), some classical music and new age.
I love musicals (do you see a theme?). My favorites thus far have been Wicked, Avenue Q, Spamalot and The Producers.
While I'm not Martha Stewart or Julia Child (yet again, who is?), I do enjoy cooking. My favorite dish is Lasagna (it's to die for). I've been told my best dessert is my Black Russian cake (it's intoxicatingly delicious), but recently I've been told my chocolate mouse takes the number one spot.
Family, Friends and Students:
My family, friends and students (former and present) mean the most to me. Since I love to entertain, my home is open to all!
