My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Well, it used to be"author" but now that I've landed that one...I dunno, maybe running a school for kids that have superpowers due to bizarre genetic mutations? Oh and also I'd have superpowers too.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. See my "motto and maxim" answer. Regret is pointless. I never do anything without first deciding to do it based on facts and feelings, and if it doesn't work out how I hoped, oh well, there's another notch on my experience belt.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. The 10-item Thali at Poppy in Seattle. Trick answer! It's 10 things in one!

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Gosh, so many to choose from. I empathize with Tesla a lot, because he had a lot of ideas to revolutionize the world, but nobody wanted to hear about it, and he eventually got destroyed by Edison, the living embodiment of everything wrong with American culture. I don't know how to transmit electricity wirelessly or anything, but I have a lot of ideas that run contrary to public consensus, which I am always taking crap for.
