Five Questions

Noir Bettie interviewed me...

1. What is your favorite thing about Los Angeles?

The Neighborhoods. I've lived in some great ones...Los Feliz, Santa Monica (a city not a hood), Venice (my fav), Culver City (again, another city but you get the point), and Eagle Rock. I sublet a studio once in Brentwood (is this a city?) when Big D and me and the condo in Mar Vista just weren't working out. Silverlake, I think, is one of the most beautiful places in the world and I love that I can play pool and drink beer in Hollywood on a smoggy---I mean hazy--- summer saturday afternoon.

2. Your least favorite thing?

MY FUCKING COMMUTE. Job in West LA. Home in Eagle Rock. I try to shake it up, find new routes (that I won't share) but Los Angeles would be the perfect city if it just extended the metro to Santa Monica

3. What's your favorite card/board/party game?

I'm not a big game player because I am not very competitive but my best friend K and I played a mean Risk game, kicked ass and always played for Brazil ---Viva Brazil!

4. What would be your perfect meal?

I nearly had it...In New Orleans at Stella! I finally got what fusion was all about. I don't want to say it was the perfect meal only because eating is my favorite thing and if I had my perfect meal there would be nothing left to live for. So, I won't know what the perfect meal is until I have it and then I will have to die.

5. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Well, I think this might be it. Not that I don't want to continue to grow (and make more money) and write more-- but sometimes life takes turns you don't expect, couldn't have written.

Let me know if you'd like me to interview you.
