1I'm a really big geek. I do dorky things, I snort when I laugh, I'm clumsy, I'm a sucker for RPG games on my computer, I watch cartoons (Pinky and the Brain (1995) and South Park (1997) are my faves) . . . and I have a really bad potty mouth.
2I don't believe in regrets. Some of the worst mistakes I've made in my life have yielded the most powerful lessons that I may not have learned otherwise.
