Favorite Literary Quotes:

I don’t want to die without any scars.” – Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

It strikes me as gruesome and comical that in our [American] culture we have an expectation that a man can always solve his problems.  There is an implication that if you just have a little more energy, a little more fight, the problem can always be solved.  That is so untrue that it makes me want to cry – or laugh.” – Kurt Vonnegut, Wampeters, Foma, and Granfalloons

Coffee or Tea:

Coffee.

Hobbies:

Snowboarding, hiking, photography, and reading.

If you could interview any author, living or dead, who would it be and why?

Fyodor Dostoevsky.  It wouldn’t be a very long or informative interview.  I’ve just wanted to dig him up and punch him in the face since college, and an interview would be good cover to get me close enough to him to do just that.

A Lil’ Something Extra:

I used to want to be a chef.  Now I think I’m having a good day if I don’t burn my lunch in the microwave.
