I find old-fashioned things such as fountain pens, fedoras (I bought one to go with my trench coat), and ice cream makers charming and not at all obsolete. I wish I could make a living as a modern day Sherlock Holmes – minus the cocaine habit and tacky deerstalker hat, would give a limb to write like David Foster Wallace, and want to go skydiving because, quite frankly, roller coasters don’t cut it for me anymore.

Interests hobbies: swimming, electronics, writing, investing (sometimes risky speculation), and things that go fast.

Favorite fictional characters: Jimmy McNulty, Tony Stark, Dr. House, and Don Draper. Why are they all insubordinate male assholes?
