too seriously. I can readily laugh at myself, and I hereby invite

The occasional joint (but I'm not a junkie!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Do androids dream of electric sheep? Who am I? What time is love?
Who do you think you are? How do you eat yours? Are friends
electric? Who goes there? Would I lie to you? Red or black? Have
