About me

Industry Non-Profit
Location Pasadena, California, United States
Introduction I'm an Indiana native who's lived in Los Angeles (defined by me as the swath of land between Santa Barbara and the Mexican border) for the last fifteen and a half years. I love Los Angeles, politics, food, booze, Diet Coke, shoes, my family (the one comprised of those actually related to me as well as the one I've cobbled together from friends), bad tv, good music, and sex. Thus, these are the things I write about most.
Interests politics, reading, writing, cooking, eating, yoga, Scrabble, monkeys, cats, robots, time travel, fine Corinthian leather

When you open your eyes underwater, do you ever worry that you'll drown?

I don't open my eyes underwater. I also plug my nose. And also, I always worry that I'll drown (even when I'm not in a body of water) because I'm a terrible swimmer.
