The six things I could never do without
1) Funny people
2) Getting to pick seats for movies in advance
3) Living my secret dream of being a DJ by making playlists on my phone and picking songs on an available jukebox
4) Returning from a trip and stepping out of LAX into frequently awesome L.A. weather
5) Great stories
6) A good mechanic, dentist, and doctor (currently three different people, but maybe some day I can find one to do them all)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...the great sitcom mysteries of my childhood. Charles in Charge was in charge of one family in season one, but then the family members completely changed in season two. And season one of Saved By the Bell was in Indiana, and then season two had some of the same characters but now was suddenly in California. Did they think nobody would notice??
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My first name
You should message me if
You want to get off this weird web site and talk like real people

You love For Esme, With Love and Squalor
