My Spanish skills don’t come from laundry, they come from obsessively watching episodes of “La Reina del Sur.” If you want to talk about smuggling hashish to Spain from North Africa, I’m you guy. If you want to talk about the prison system, look no further. If you want to talk about the early hours of morning when the sunlight casts everything in a grey pall and it’s the moment that at some point in your life you’re sure you will pass on, well, I’m you guy. But if you want to talk about the different treatments for rayon….look elsewhere.

If I could live forever, I would pay whatever price. I’d make a deal with the Devil if that were a real thing.

Before I go anywhere, I know exactly where I’m going, how to get there, and what I’m going to wear. It’s all part of the preparations that make me a […]
Paris is a unique city because nearly everybody has been there. Not physically, of course, but we’ve all been transported to the City of Lights in a film or a […]
Every day, I say that we must get started earlier, but we never do. I don’t know why I bother trying. I’m not a morning person and I never will […]
I had a terribly difficult time waking up today, even worse than usual and that’s saying something pretty dramatic, reader. I didn’t come halfway across North America to sleep in, […]
