Right now, I'm reading:
Nothing! I've finished all my ZOMBIE books. My eyes have been bothering me lately, so I save my 'reading' for the SIXES & my computer. NOT being able to read for fun every day is pure TORTURE for me.

My favorite story of all time is:
NOT NOW, BERNARD. This "childrens" book is way scary, but all parents should read it to their kids so they will know that they CAN be replaced very easily if they don't shape up. ;)

In bed I like to read:
ONLY because I don't have anything BETTER to do right now! :P

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Stop lights; during commercials; while eating. As long as it's in English, I'll read it. A day without reading is a day without... just fill in your favorite thing.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
The movie, GROUNDHOG DAY! I keep making the SAME mistakes OVER & OVER, no matter how hard I try NOT to. The people change but the end result is exactly the same. I'm caught in a TIME LOOP & I can't get OUT. :(

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Don't say "no" ALL the time.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS. My Mom sang this song to each of us kids, from the time we were babies, every night when she put us to bed.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Anyone who wants to know what it feels like to see the train coming & just LET it come, OVER & OVER again, while NEVER getting out of the way. :(
