Right now, I'm reading:
Right now, I'm reading: Just like everybody else.

My favorite story of all time is:
life of pie

In bed I like to read:
the numbers on the channel changer

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
my leisure

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?
Why I ate my hands in the first place! And where the heck is Exasperation?

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Play these numbers on these dates...

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Joy to the World

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
The guy they had to hire to count all my money for me because I had made so much answering these secret survey questions for some new surprise money-giveaway reality show that gets all its cast on this site.
