Way to spend a Saturday morning

I wake up at 3 a.m. every day, so Saturdays are for sleeping in. If I’m feeling ambitious, I’ll cook a big greasy-spoon breakfast.


TV show

The Legend of Korra is amazing.


Way to spend $20

A really good meal


Class in high school

Art. I was an art kid once. I wanted to be an illustrator.


Way to get myself moving in the morning

I try to go to the gym because at that hour I have the whole place to myself.

Way to unwind

Reading comic books



I go back and read Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel again every year or so.


Concert I ever attended

Pulp at Radio City Music Hall


Out-of-town destination

I recently visited my bestie in Los Angeles. Any city with that many doughnut shops is all right with me.


Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppyIdea of perfect happiness

Corgis. So many corgis.


Talent I wish I had

That thing where you put two fingers in your mouth and whistle really loud.


My motto for life

Everything in moderation, even moderation.


Hidden talent

I do a pretty great Cher impression. At least I think so.
