About Me


five hundred words a day


Oh, I'm a little here, little there, a bit like napoleon, only taller.

I created a course on The Twilight Zone for my school and that is all that matters.

I guess I live in Iran now...


"Philosophy, except as it is expressed in bursts of song, poems, and stories, has never gripped me, although I wanted badly once to be an existentialist, but mainly for the beret."
