Personals: Hannah Cohen, CC’15, and Peter Sterne, CC’14

Written by

Tonight’s personals include a Henry VIII enthusiast and a New Yorker fan: meet Hannah Cohen and Peter Sterne.

Name, Year, School, Major: Hannah Jane Cohen, Sophomore, CC, Earth Science and Physics

Preference: Girl for guy

Hometown: Chappaqua, NY

Dream date in seven words or fewer: Spinal tap + beer + cuddling + late night talking

What redeems you as a human being? In the Bible verse for Hannah (Mother of Samuel), her husband asks her, “Are you drunk in the temple again? You always do this.” I try and live by this philosophy every day.

Obsessive book series of choice: The Dark Tower. Nothing else even compares.

Library room of choice: 6th Floor. Also my room.

What you think the sexiest animal is: An Icelandic Pony or a miniature husky puppy.

Guilty pleasure song:So Yesterday” by Hillary Duff and all of Marilyn Manson. I’m a pretty embarrassing person.

Do you watch “Girls” ironically or unironically? Obviously unironically! If you say you watch Girls ironically, I will automatically assume you are stupid. Much like people who didn’t like “Cloud Atlas” or understand the Lost finale — you are dumb.

Historical hottie: Anne of Cleves. She’s the coolest of Henry VIII’s wives.

Name, Year, School, Major: Peter Sterne, Junior, CC, Anthropology

Preference: Guy for girl

Hometown: Greenwich, CT

Dream date in seven words or fewer: Dinner, drinks, discussing the New Yorker, brunch (“discussing the New Yorker” may or may not be a euphemism)

What redeems you as a human being? I afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. Also, I always hold the door for people.

Obsessive book series of choice: The Hunger Games. J-Law is amazing.

What you think the sexiest animal is: Humans

Guilty pleasure song: Robyn, “Call Your Girlfriend”

Do you watch “Girls” ironically or unironically? Unironically. (I’m a Charlie.)

Historical Hottie: Ida Tarbell

  1. isnt' there a  

    conflict of interest between bwog and peter sterne? being that he's a staffer and could have tailored the questions to his own liking?

  5. The Honourably Based FILGB  

    >Majoring in Anthropology

  6. The Dark Hand  

    Cloaked Mask...why are you not putting your personal up on spec sucks like me???

  7. TBB  

    >identifying with Charlie. Peter, you disappoint me.

  8. Secret Hilary Duff Fan  

    I have to Come Clean: I'd hit it.

  9. from the zero  

    But peter, I thot, I thot, u loved me... ;_;

  10. Anon  

    I can't even with Peter's answers.

  11. This is stupid  

    "Obviously unironically! If you say you watch Girls ironically, I will automatically assume you are stupid."

    Girls is a fundamentally ironic television show. It is not possible to watch it unironically. Lena Dunham is a genius and this question is dumb.

    You mean you don't have to be a famous politician to live in Chappaqua? Crazy!

  13. confused  

    Is that a Columbia Daily Spectator banner I see in the background?

  14. Watching  

    Girls "unironically" doesn't make sense. The writing is self-aware and subtly pokes fun at itself. Claiming you only watch it ironically is like saying you read Hipster Runoff ironically; you clearly don't know what the fuck you're supposed to be consuming.

  15. Fem Fat  

    > talking about girls > analyzing girls > assuming Lena Dunham is anything other than a person to be laughed at > wat r u doin

  16. Wait....  

    Wasn't Anne of Cleves ugly as hell? Like, she was compared to a horse almost as bad as SJP.

    But then again, you included "Icelandic Pony" as a sexy animal, so.....

    For someone going into journalism, you'd think one would know better than to take pictures without asking permission.

    Your twitter looks lovely, too, Pete.

  18. I would love to go out with Hannah!

  19. Hey,  

    "Call Your Girlfriend" is straight-up pleasure, nothing guilty about enjoying it

  20. Holy non-Shiska, Batman!

    Realized all the cute chicks thus far have Jewish fuckin last names.

    Immediately forwarding Bwog to my former classmate who still goes here. Guy is obsessed with Jewish brownhaired non-shiskas.

    Man how I'd love to be at Columbia again!

    Fellow Jew.

    I am automatically impressed by any girl who does physics.

    (Because of the physics part, not the girl part. The girl part is relevant because I'm a straight guy.)

    yeah can we maybe list people from outside westchester or Connecticut for once?

  24. >>  

    >>Bwog touts its steadfast commitment to freedom of speech.

    >>>Calls Peter Sterne "The wettest of farts." A witty, mildly vulgar but hardly damning insult.

    >>>>Gets comment deleted.

    Is it just me, or is there a problem here?

  25. Straight Girl crush

    I'd let Hannah sit on my face.

  29. Yo Hannah.  

    Meet me at dawn on Lowe steps? I'll leave a note on Alma if I have to pee (cuz I know you don't dig guys who do it in bottles). Get at me, beautiful.

    nothin but love for the first annual peter sterne memorial winner

  31. Oy.

    Cloud Atlas was nothing intrepid. It was about on the same level as A Dangerous Method.
