  1. Dude, #5 is ridiculously you. HA!

  2. I have no idea what you are talking about
    ...and I CERTAINLY don't have Japanese soda bottles lined up on my mantle.
    Or collect beer bottle labels... or ...

    alright, you got me.

    Wasabi peas in a can anyone?

  3. My goodness!!! I LOVE the 50 reasons not to date a graphic designer list. I don't know a graphic designer is probably better than dating a writer...

  4. LOL! I dunno!

    The next list should be dating a writer vs. a designer..

    of course there might be some wars over book covers vs. book contents!
    Or correcting grammar!

    Were you speaking from experience? :)

  5. writers are flaky! and insecure! and cry about emasculation! completely unhealthy! even worse: poets!

    book covers will always win. i would rather date someone who dresses by pantone chips over a writer anyday.
