@SarahP My candle burns at both ends;It will not last the night;But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—It gives a lovely light!

I love Dorothy Parker so much. I don't think I could pick a favorite poem of hers, but when I was a teenager I wrote "Observation" on my bedroom wall. It goes thus:

If I don't drive around the park,
I'm pretty sure to make my mark.
If I'm in bed each night by ten,
I may get back my looks again,
If I abstain from fun and such,
I'll probably amount to much,
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn.

@Yankee Peach I have had a posthumous (post-his humous, not mine, and yes I know the word doesn't work that way) literary crush on Robert Benchley for a couple of decades. He seems like a lovely person and friend, besides being completely hilarious.

Thank you! I loved her ever since I found "Resume" in a library book as a 14 year old. It was the first poem I ever chose to memorize (and the only one I can still recite).
I wish I liked gin and could play piano. Otherwise I was convinced that we are the same person.

@Yankee Peach I miss mine too :( He once gave me the good advice of "don't use sex as a weapon" which I appreciated all the more because it was apropos of literally nothing when he decided to counsel me about this.

@christonacracker Pretty shocked that "How are you paying for this?" was not part of the interview.
