"Sometimes, I feel that I'm only just ready to start my life. I know what I need to, to live it a hundred times better. As far as I can see, no one is out there waiting for me with a ticket that says 'try it again'. I'll probably really figure out exactly how to be alive right when I'm gasping for my last breath." -Jane Hamilton, The Book of Ruth

"The true New Yorker secretly believes that anyone living anywhere else must somehow, in a sense, be kidding." -John Updike

Interested in friending me? I'm most likely to friend you back if:
  • I met you recently.
  • You comment on something I've written, and you like it.
  • You're cool and/or we have stuff in common.
  • You know people I know.
  • You aren't creepy.

Yes, I do at least skim everyone who friends me. I'm not big on commenting, even to my best friends, so you'll just have to take my word for it.

And now I'll anticipate your next question: this is where my username came from.
