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

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

  • isnt' there a says:

    @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?

    1. go easy on him says:

      @go easy on him he’s a bwog writer. don’t take away one of the few methods he has left to get laid

      1. STOP says:

        @STOP PAUSE. FREEZE. there are 69 likes. do not, i repeat DO NOT like the post above this one.

        1. god says:

          @god damn it.

          1. it's ok says:

            @it's ok @god: it’s at 169 now

    @Anonymous at first i was like “how can dinner and brunch be part of the same date” then i felt dumb.

  • babby says:

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous I swear these personals are fucking j-date.

    1. but says:

      @but I’ve seen much more goyim on JDate

      1. wut says:

        @wut dat word goyim is racist ;_;

        1. Twitch says:

          @Twitch It’s not. It literally just means “nations.” jewish texts refer to the jews as a goy, too. colloquially is usually means “other nations.”

          unless you’re committed to the idea that the use of the term Other is necessary racist, this isn’t.

          1. wut says:

            @wut There is only one unracist term and that is Otherkin. There is only one Sun and Moon and that is the Machine.

        @The Dark Hand i thot u were goin 4 rebeka u player. she liked Franz Liszt too!

        1. TBB says:

          @TBB Oh, TDH, you~
          >implying it wasn’t Liszt who put the romantic in Romanticism

          There’s room enough for three in this story.

  • Anon says:

    @Anon I can’t even with Peter’s answers.

  • This is stupid says:

    @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.

    1. Lena D. says:

      @Lena D. hi i read your comment and it is very smart

  • Anonymous says:

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

  • confused says:

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

    1. The Veiled Mouth says:

      @The Veiled Mouth You are starting to figure out how deep the rabbit hole truly goes

      1. The Dark Hand says:

        @The Dark Hand so much SPECBWOG incest it’s truly disgusting.

        1. It's not called incest says:

          @It's not called incest It’s called bestiality. Speccies are the humans, Bwoggies are the animals.

  • Watching says:

    @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.

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous > talking seriously about girls > chewing out another person for their opinion > reading hipster runoff

  • Fem Fat says:

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

    1. brg says:

      @brg More like FemThick, amirite?

      1. Fem Fat says:

        @Fem Fat it’s okay folks, he knows what i look like IRL… and it’s true

        1. brg says:

          @brg And I gotta say, dayummmm gurlll! There’s a reason bwog wants me to put some popcorn in the box rite now!

          1. BRG?!?!? FROM B@B?!?! says:

            @BRG?!?!? FROM B@B?!?! holy wtf’ism batman!

            i missed our late night conversations on b@b back when i went to columbia. i havent been on that site in 2 years but i remember our convos vividly (which admittedly is quite gross when vividly thought of but still lolz)

            good times bro. good times.

            – b@b former bro.

          2. Fem Fat says:

            @Fem Fat brg + b@bro = missed connections *doo doo doo dooooo*

          3. brg says:

            @brg Bro, who you is?

  • Wait.... says:

    @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…..

    1. ? says:

      @? Is “SJP” Sarah Jessica Parker or Students for Justice in Palestine?

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous 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.

    1. Peter says:

      @Peter That’s a very good point, but in this case, I do have permission to use the photo.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous I would love to go out with Hannah!

    1. brg says:

      @brg back off motherfucker.

      also, bwog, I love your captcha now.

  • Hey, says:

    @Hey, “Call Your Girlfriend” is straight-up pleasure, nothing guilty about enjoying it

  • Holy non-Shiska, Batman! says:

    @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!

    -K-Dogg, SEAS Alum, ’10 and ’12
    Fellow Jew.

    1. Gentile says:

      @Gentile I thought it was shiksa, not shiska.

    2. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous mmmm shiska-bobs

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous 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.)

  • Geoff says:

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

  • >> says:

    @>> >>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?

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous nobody cares.

    2. Hm says:

      @Hm I would disagree. I find it morally and professionally questionable that an editor of Bwog can simply delete any comments he finds personally unflattering.

  • Straight Girl crush says:

    @Straight Girl crush I’d let Hannah sit on my face.

  • Yo Hannah. says:

    @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.

  • JJ11 4 lyfe says:

    @JJ11 4 lyfe nothin but love for the first annual peter sterne memorial winner

  • Oy. says:

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