Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. I spend the average work day writing and wasting time in equal measure. I hardly ever go anywhere because I hate to drive, so I order almost everything over the Internet. Nearly the only time I leave the house is to walk my Doberman. I have a raging caffeine addiction and drink about seven cups of iced tea a day. I eat about ten carrots a day; on a recent occasion when I DID venture to the grocery store, the guy packing my groceries put his hand next to mine and said, "Look how orange you are!" I can't walk through the living room because there are too many Lego minifigs and green army guys on the floor. My six-year-old son and my dog have the energy of ten NBA stars between them -- that's why I need caffeine. In short, my life is just about perfect.
