Many things that I would not care to tell any individual man I tell to the public, and for knowledge of my most secret thoughts, I refer my most loyal friends to a bookseller's stall. -- Michel de Montaigne
I am 32 years old and not dead yet. I write fanfic and fiction and am terrible about replying to emails. You can find my original novels Nameless, Charitable Getting, and Trace, and my college guide Other People Can Smell You at my professional writing website. You can find my fanfic at The Storyteller Archive and my original fiction in-progress at theoriginalsam.

I live in Wrigleyville in Chicago, in a flat that's bigger on the inside. I spend a lot of time at my former flat with my former roommate R, a local blues musician and Wheel of Fortune master. We make our own fun.
On October first, 2008, my journal was hacked and all my entries for the five years previous were deleted. I've managed to resurrect about 80%, but the comments are gone forever. If you stumble across an old entry, that's why none of them have comments.
metalnurse: Since when do you use tags? annemjw: Since the hack. His is to be the most organised journal in the history of the world! lorena_bee: No. One cannot organize Sam's reality. One can only index and cross-reference it.
I will try to cook or eat anything I can afford at least once and some things several thousand times just to be sure. I am a maskmaker, writer, dramaturg and scenic designer. I currently work as a corporate samurai on the eighteenth floor of a Loop office building. My family lives in Texas and consists of my mother and sister, my stepfather Lucky, and his mother Mama Tickey.
My journal is informally known as Sam's Cafe and is read by people of many religions, political beliefs, and ethnic backgrounds. Whatever your beliefs, you are welcome here so long as you remain polite. Come in, sit down, and have a pastry. I made them myself.
