  44. Tobacco is whack-o.
  45. Nose hair is not as disgusting as a lot of people think. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not pro nose hair. Just not disgusted by it. As long as it’s kept clean — there are no dried boogers attached to it — I have no problem with it at all.

  59. Ella Fitzgerald was a little show-offy sometimes.
  60. Remember the time Anne Rice started fighting with people writing Amazon reviews of her books? That struck me as kind of weird and pathetic.
  61. I am not entitled to success in any way, except by hard work and luck. Neither are you. There is no such thing as talent.
