"If you can do a half-assed job of anything, you're a one-eyed man in a kingdom of the blind. -Kurt Vonnegut" Writing has always been a passion for me, more than that really, it's a compulsion. I get cranky when I don't write and the little people that live in my head get mad when they're not allowed out to frolic on the page. I'm pretty normal. A total nerd. I can basically quote the entire movie The Princess Bride...with properly applied accents. I love Harry Potter and can pretty much quote the books too, and will pwn in any sort of trivia contest related to Harry Potter. I'm in more AP classes than I should be in and therefore can't write as much as I would like to. I'm a total cynic so happy endings aren't really my thing, but then again, I might surprise you. I always have a smart ass comment for every situation and I believe that's a gift. I love Swedish Fish more than words can describe and I'm a music snob. I read constantly and am also a book snob. I spend so much money on books that I have simply requested that instead of Christmas gifts I should be given Barnes and Noble gift cards and my parents have graciously complied with this demand.I think that classical music speaks to your soul in a way beyond what anything produced now can. Somehow we lost our ability to express ourselves beautifully and without intense sexual innuendo. But I still like my rock. I also love Kurt Vonnegut, which is why I chose my name to be kilgoretrout. If you don't catch the reference go read.
