I've written for as long as I can remember. Quite literally, before I had the words, I wrote stories with pictures. I think that goes a long way toward explaining my affinity for comic books and films. I fully admit to being sort of scattered in my interests. I'm a bit of a nerd and a complete cinephile. There are few things I won't watch -from obscure arthouse docs to the most asinine big budget comedies (although I tend not to like B&W westerns).
As a kid, my most serious and enduring aspiration was to be a veterinarian. That is, until calculus and chemistry royally kicked my ass in college. That's when I discovered I am a prime candidate for the first seat (right behind the driver) on the short bus. Word to the wise, don't ever ask me to help you calculate the tip or tell you the sale price. I'll just make you think sad thoughts about the value of education in America (and cost you money).
I think that admission is a viable choice for the "Most private thing I'm willing to admit" entry (but I told you here, bonus!)
