My dinner spot is usually in front of the TV. I'll grill a steak and whip up a salad and watch 'Hoarders'. I love it because a) I'm kind of voyeuristic, and b) every time I see an episode, I go to the one room where all my unpacked boxes wound up, and I throw out a box of stuff.
I think men and women are the same. Even as parents, I think we're the same. We're just conditioned to think that we're different.

Al-Waleed bin Talal

Poetry criticism at its worst today is mean in spirit and spiteful in intent, as if determined to inflict the wound that will spur the artist to new heights if it does not cripple him or her.
Well, I always say that the two things I was most disastrous at in my life, being a teenager and being a wife, were the two things I really wound up cashing in on when I was writing fluffy magazine pieces.

No one recovers from the disease of being born, a deadly wound if there ever was one.
Emile M. Cioran
But I always wound up being the damn John, when I wanted to be the Paul.
