How about we… learn to swing dance at the corniest place on Restaurant Row?
How about we… attend a rehearsal of the New York Philharmonic?

My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I dreamt, though never believed, that one day I would lead a life of romance, risk, and beauty. My joys are nervous ones, my successes like butterflies, glorious and brief. And as I stand ankle-deep in mud, shoulder to shoulder with my vagabond army, I wonder if this is to be my Macedon or my Babylon. But true virtue begins in hypocrisy. And so I don the ass's nole in hopes that, one day, I may truly consort with fairies.

One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
"My boy took piano lessons for 10 years. Yes! Did you know that? Play something, sweetheart! Play for the nice people. Oh, come now! Look, he's turning red. Just like when he was a boy. Such a cutie pie. Really, he used to be very good. Play something, sweetheart! Why are you running away? Why are you climbing over the railing? Sweetheart?"
