I want to write a novel and see it become a best-seller.
2) Are you doing (career-wise) what you imagined you'd be doing 10, 15, 20 years ago?
I am doing the very last thing in the universe that I thought I would be doing 25 years ago. As of next month, I've been doing it for 23 years. Life is strange. Go figure.
3) When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a professional football player or an astronaut. Those careers never worked out, so I just never grew up.
4) Do you frequently adjust your dreams and goals as you go along?
No. I still want to be a professional football player or an astronaut. Whatta dumb question. OF COURSE I frequently adjust my dreams and goals, sometimes hourly anymore. I would tell you what my dreams and goals are, but they're liable to change before I could write them down.
Howdy-Doody and Captain Kangaroo. Both shows influenced me greatly. I never wanted strings tied to me, but I wanted to grow up to carry a lot of keys. I have achieved both goals.
