I think of myself as a journeyman, Diary, but I know most think of me as an actor. I think of myself as a man too from a philosophical perspective. I got into that book on psychotherapy that I gave to Manolo for Christmas. It's an uncomfortable ride. I use the word "uncomfortable" the way Sean Penn uses it: as a perversion. That is to say it's like the sound of one-handed push ups: pleasing and painful. Apparently the author is a big proponent of naked encounter therapy. I heard about that once from an old acting coach. At the time I thought it was code for a massage parlor. Oh well. The Fedex guy just delivered my backgammon strategies book so I must answer the call of the bakelite.
