What I Do, Job-wise: I tell stories. And I teach entrepreneurs how to tweet.
 
What I Do, Fun-wise: I like to read great books, write entertaining stories, watch lots of reality TV (I don't care, I don't care!), cook and eat good food, dine in fine establishments, hang out at Wegmans, attend live theater, watch foreign films and documentaries, and shop. I love to shop.
 
My Motto: Believe it and you can achieve it. (So cliché, by the way.)
 
My Anti-Motto: Expect the best but prepare for the worst.
 
The First Movie Star I Ever Had a Crush On: Shemar Moore.
 
My “Celebs to Make Out With” List: Shemar Moore. I'm faithful, even to my secret celebrity crushes. Does that sound stalker-ish?
 
The Most Played Song on My iTunes: My iPod has been dead for months now. I don't even know what's new.
 
Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: I read Native Son by Richard Wright earlier this year. I'm currently reading Zadie Smith's On Beauty and asha bandele's Daughter at the same damn time.
 
My Most Worn Item of Clothing: You know, I've been wearing a lot of leggings lately. That's just lazy, huh.
 
Beauty Products That I Hoard: Tons of Chapstick and MAC lip glass and shadows. But I wear mainly Chapstick.
 
I Smell Like: Dove Cucumber and Green Tea in the summer and The Body Shop's shea butter in the winter. I accept The Body Shop gift cards, by the way.
 
I Have Faked an Orgasm (Yes/No): Nothing about me is fake, Hunny...except this weave I'm 'bout to try.
