A well-made salad must have a certain uniformity; it should make perfect sense for those ingredients to share a bowl.
Those who restrain their desires, do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained.

Yet to try to insure we will not be forgotten too often results in desperate manipulative strategies that are doomed to fail.
I love those who do not know how to live for today.
It's funny. People often compare me to other humor essayists. They're usually quite nice comparisons; I will accept those gladly. But I am always sort of appalled at the idea of being lumped with other, more chick-y female writers. And the truth is probably that neither comparison is accurate.
