i'm an executive transvestite.

My new favorite thing about reviews is the ones that come complete with a presumption of insight into my motives as a writer. I think maybe this is part of becoming an auctorial construct: people think they get you, when in fact what they get is the person they construct in their heads. (I understand this happens to, like, real famous people to an astounding degree; it's kind of a creepy feeling from the inside.)

The glamour!: girl scout cookies apparently contain something that converts into pure crankonium in my blood stream. Aren't I a little old to be developing a sensitivity to cheap chocolate?
