About Me


I am an explorer of planet Earth on a continuous mission to make the best of what's around.


I love bacon-cheeseburgers with fries.


It is better to waste money than to waste time; you can always make more money.

"You get really grumpy when you're tired"
- Rena
"Fuck you!"
- Drew

"Look! We're going to go fly in the ship"
"But only airplanes can fly!"
-little kid
"In Disneyland everything can fly!"

"For relaxing times, make it... Suntory times."
-Bob Harris

I was reading the qualifying reasons to get a REFUND for my flight:
"Trip Cancellation - reimburses cancellation penalties or unused arrangements should you need to cancel because of illness, injury, or death to yourself..." wait. You had to specify that last one?


"My powers of reason are unimpaired... OK, they're only slightly impaired."

"I'm as clean as like... a hospital."

"Yesterday I was your bus driver; today I am your chief."

"I don't want anymore of this 'what's up' shit. 'What's up?' (bewildered face) 'uhh, Iunno...'

I'd just like to be in films that I would like to see. I think of myself as an entertainment arsenal. Like I have my acting bazooka and my music machete. And you don't know what I'm going to come at you with.
-Jack Black

There's nothing you can really do to prepare to rock. Do you prepare to eat a delicious meal? Are you hungry? Then you're gonna eat it.
-Jack Black

"What do you believe in?!"
- Soon-to-be-dead-bitch
"I'm not paid to believe. I'm paid to fuck shit up."
- Tom Jane

"That's just the beginning. Buckle your seatbelt, lady, you're being wooed."
- Phil Dunphy

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cave diving in Waitomo, New Zealand and watching galaxies upon galaxies of glow worms pass above me; then climbing up through tiny passageways and small waterfalls back to the surface. Then, several days later, having a bungy jump marathon of 3 jumps in one day in Queenstown.
