About Me

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?
having fun ... i have so much g-d damn fun ... i am lousy with it ... i have been overrun by it ... i was locked in giggly mortal combat with it for a while ... now i am kind of its bitch.

In bed I like to read:
the economist.

Right now, I'm reading:
my mind ... ok, skimming really.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
The future's both real and important....

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Stardust when I'm still ... the theme to the Pink Panther when I'm on the move.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
My Dad...with Kathy Acker (the patron saint of rule benders) reading over his shoulder.

My favorite story of all time is:
I love all good stories ... even a few bad ones.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
home, on the bus, standing in line at the grocery store ... I'm not super picky about where I read.
