I spend a lot of time thinking about
what song to cue up in karaoke (and how bad it will sound to listeners); what my favorite movies of the year are; what movies are coming out next week; how much money I spend going to see movies.

dancing - always poorly - to Motown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was named Class Clown in high school. The antics continue today.
