Capizzi! It's in the worst location (Behind Port Authority Bus Station) but it makes the best italian style pizza. And they have AMAZING sangria.

Ugh, it's idiotic but "Drive" by Incubus. I over played it as a teen, and still sometimes listen to it when I need a quick shot of clarity.
First celebrity crush?
No idea. I'm gonna go with Idris Elba. He's a good choice for any celebrity thing.
I don't think I have one but I would LOVE to have Janelle Monae's style, let alone look like her.

Savannah GA. I went to collage there, and now visiting feels like going home.
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I'd have the power to be Superman. Then I would have ALL the superpowers.
