Quote of the Day
Now before I work out, I think, 'I love exercise,' and it works.
Unfortunately I don't live by a Target now, so I just go to a regular Starbucks as opposed to a Starbucks nested inside a Target, which is my ideal situation. That works out for me. I like that white noise, those interruptions, and the people around me.

Infatuated, half through conceit, half through love of my art, I achieve the impossible working as no one else ever works.

Word of mouth works now, much more than ever. @-reply every single person.
