How is your spring going?

So so. I'm currently being elbowed repeatedly by someone on the subway, so that's not ideal, but I'm getting off the train soon, so hopefully things will get better, unless this person follows me out and continues to elbow me on the street. 

What have you worked on in the past year that you're most happy with?

I quit smoking a few months ago, which was a fair amount of work. The next big thing for me to quit is telling people that I've recently quit smoking.

What’s your favorite brunch spot?

I live around the corner from Tom's Restaurant on Washington Avenue, and I quite like to go there early before the line gets too long. But I suppose that's really my favorite breakfast spot in that case. I'll get back to you.

What can people expect from your reading?

Me reading and wearing clothes, unless my attitude towards public nudity changes significantly over the next few days.
