It's amazing how much of my life has been determined by a quarter inch piece of plastic.

You know, this necklace makes me think of this totally random memory of my mother. I was a little kid, and I was crying for whatever reason, and she was cradling me, rocking me back and forth, and I can just remember the silver balls floating around.

My mom just died. God, it's weird to say it out loud. But, my mom just died.

The only thing worse than a favor is a favor involving money.

What do you do? You laugh. I'm not saying I don't cry, but in between, I laugh. And I realize how silly it is to take anything too seriously. Plus, I look forward to a good cry. It feels pretty good.

I'm okay with being unimpressive. I sleep better.

If you can't laugh at yourself, life is going to seem a whole lot longer than you'd like.
