9 to 5 (day job): Healthcare stuffs

1.  Write a short bio of your favorite musician/author/actor/etc. in 100 characters or less.
Prolific terrific Uncle Stevie nods at pop culture in his super[natural] stories. (Stephen King is real life, folks.)

2.  What world city do you identify with?
Modern-day Salzburg. Gothic, cultured, community-driven town with modern convenience and historical wealth (Well, I don’t identify with historical wealth. Fingers crossed for when I’m 80.). I love being able to walk to everything I need, as well as being a relatively short drive away from other similar towns and cities. There’s also mountains and lakes as well as industry and it’s all just breathtaking.

3.  Which pop culture icon is your spirit animal?
Hmmm…probably Bridget Jones, prior to meeting Mark Darcy. And also prior to meeting Daniel Cleaver. Sigh. (But let’s be honest, I want so bad for it to be Beyonce.)

4.  If you could only listen/watch/read three things for the rest of your life, what would you choose (no mixing and matching – they all have to be in the same category)?
I’d read Thomas Tryon’s Harvest Home, Pat Conroy’s My Losing Season and Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible. Not necessarily the most uplifting stories, but hey, if I have only three things to consume for the rest of my life, they’d at least show me that it could always be worse.

5.  FMK: Tom Hiddleston, Adrian Brody, Joel Kinnaman
This is difficult in an “I can’t quit you” kind of way, and yet also easy. Because POP CULTURE. F: Adrian Brody. M: Tom Hiddleston. K: Joel Kinnaman. Sorry, Holder. Here’s why: First, the M is a no brainer. The F is the trickiest. Adrian is my long-standing celebricrush. But Joel Kinnaman won his way into [the section of] my heart [reserved for famous men] with his adorable Lt. Stephen Holder. Here’s what makes this easier: Robocop. I need to sacrifice Kinnaman to save Detroit. It’s for America!

6.  What is your favorite celebrity quote and why does it resonate with you?
“We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.” – Carson McCullers; I’d say this sums up my outlook on life. I do live in a nostalgia bubble most of the time; however, I find that when I’m in the same routine/city/existence for too long I get an itch for change.

Now, where else can we find you?
