Yes. All of it. The spicier, the better. It ain't lunch if you're
not crying. My favorite meal is breakfast, and by that I mean
I'm a decent cook, though I could cook more often. I like to get
creative, but try not to get weird with my cooking.
I keep my nerd references healthy, but I'm starting to branch out a
lot more. A certain radio show, of typically three or more parts,
has kind of inspired me to start branching out. So, I'm going to be
reading David Rackoff for a bit. Also in straying from my typical

Netflix streaming series on in the background while I draw, but
it's not a huge priority. House and Fringe held my interest for the
longest time, but then Cuddy dumped House and I fell behind in
