The six things I could never do without
Just pick 6 random things from either Sharper Image or SkyMall magazine. I cannot live without those.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do hot dogs come in packages of 10 and hot dog buns come in packages of 8?
On a typical Friday night I am
Fighting off Deebo.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes Skrillex makes me feel amped.
You should message me if
You selected 6 things from Sharper Image or SkyMall for me.

(Nota bene: since SkyMall is now defunct, if you have a full run of the publication [1990-2015], contact me so I can start collecting its rarified remains!)
