Right now, I'm reading:
Russell Brand's My Booky Wook

My favorite story of all time is:
Alice In Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty. Also Renee Yohe's story.

In bed I like to read:
go ask alice, the bell jar, for whom this bell tolls, the perks of being a wallflower, rx, the purpose for the pain, my booky wook, blade silver, faded denim, after the wreck i picked myself up spread my wings and flew away, dan brown books, poetry, and anything i can get my hands on really.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
tumblr.com blogs are stories in real time.

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 gum on the bottom of my shoe, you know that stickyness that never comes off, yeah, that's all the stuff from the past still catching up with me.
