    Hi Kim, Are you familiar with the website: Tons of wonderful off-beat, out-of-left-field tidbits. Well written too.

    Biographies. Memoirs. Autobiographies. Read with a grain of salt––ha!––should all be read with a oceans of salt!

    And I’ve always appreciated Joan Didion’s writing.

    Polari video is amazing.

    Thank you for naming my hatred of the sound of chewing. I can remember even as a child wanting to bolt from the dinner table. To this day, I cannot be in the same room as someone eating an apple! Weird, right?

    My daughters hate going to the movies with me because of my noisy popcorn chewing. But that’s probably me, not them.
