My top three books, I recently decided, are American Gods, The
Wanting Seed, and The Stranger. I think they describe me pretty
well, but I read a whole lot of other things too. I also read a
decent amount of nonfiction (generally history and mythology), but
I don't form favorites there for some reason. Oh and like comic

lot of hamburgers when I go out to eat, but I don't think they're
my favorite food. I just like fancy burgers, and they are terribly
impractical to make at home. Maybe coffee? Does coffee count as a
