"[My relationships were] like I was in these movies where the script was only half-written. When I’d get to the end of this half-script, the other actors wanted me to ad lib. But I had never gotten the hang of that. That’s why these movies were always box-office failures. Six of them in the past twenty years. I always blew the lines." ~ from my horrible first novel "Learn How To Pretend." (unpublished)(obviously)

REPOST: Where in the World is Matt?

This video always makes me smile. I've watched it a lot since I first discovered it. Matt had done a piece for NPR's "This I Believe" that I used in my college-level Freshman English classes. After the first time we read it, one of the students pointed me toward the video -- I'd not seen it. Now, every semester I slip this one in. If you are having a shitty day, check this out.
