I want to be a movie star just so I could hire Monica do style my jewelry for red carpet events. The Carlo Giuliano pendent with something colbalt blue and those insane wire earrings with...I don't know, something black with a structured bodice and shoulders but flowy bottom?

Former picky eater here. I was STUBBORN and my parents were just too tired to deal with it, so they let me eat shredded cheese slapped on tortilla chips and thrown in the microwave for most my developmental years.

I don't know what happened. Maybe the scared lizard part of my brain settled down once I got through puberty or something.
Love mob movies. Goodfellas is easily the most fun of the lot. And THE LOOK on Ray Liotta's face when he's marching his future goomah out of his current goomah's bedroom while they're touring the apartment? Nppmh.
Enjoy that booze-and-coked up back room in the sky, Henry.
