I've lived in Brooklyn for four years, Chicago and Japan before that, but North Carolina will always be home.
A friend has dubbed me a "stealth nerd," and I find that a pretty accurate description.
Vocal people on the NYC trains have had very divergent opinions of who I am and what I'm capable of. I have been told, all on separate occasions:
1) To go back to my own country
2) That the strange gentleman speaking created me and he could undo me on a whim
3) To, and I quote, "tell Superman to leave me [the speaker] the fuck alone!"
Based on these observations, you can probably deduce that I am in fact a foreign golem in the shape of Jimmy Olsen. Or something.
Lethologica: a psychological disorder that inhibits an individual's ability to articulate his or her thoughts by temporarily forgetting key words, phrases or names in conversation. I don't have it. Usually.
