I had done extensive research throughout my younger years LOL Although some of the data is a bit shrouded and unclear. But I can tell you what bars and clubs have the cleanest bathrooms fo sho! :P
When I was about 12 I read a book by John Benton titled Renee'. That book scared the living shit out of me and when I was finished I knew without a doubt I'd A: Never become a prostitute and B: Never read anything by that man again. He has a whole series of books. I stuck to Paul Zindel's 'The Pigman' after that.
My inspiration came from a combination of boredom and failure. Trust me...it makes sense in my head.
Come on now! Its so hard to talk about yourself! :P
I'll do my best to answer some Q's while I'm gone...but no promises. I'll be home for Christmas!! Happy Holidays everyone! Stay warm and be happy. I know I am!
