I was born and raised in
Los Angeles, California. I moved here in 1991 and knew nothing
about cocktailing or working in a casino. I developed a
love/hate relationship with the job throughout the years, but I
realize that for all the stress and headaches that go along with
dealing with the public from all over the world, it really is a
rewarding job, and I've made some great friends both from
co-workers and customers. I still visit L.A. but I consider
myself a true local now, and for me...there's no place like
Some Fun Facts
No, Dollie isn't my real
name...it's Jebediah (I'm Mormon/Jewish).
OK, I feel I must
clarify this since obviously many people don't get it.
The above statement is a joke. Dollie is my
real name, and I'm not Mormon/Jewish. People ask me
all day long if Dollie is my real name, so I started telling
everyone no, and I thought of the most redneck name I could
think of and would say, "It's Jebediah, but you can call me
Jeb." Also, every day a variation of this conversation
"Where are you
OK, I'm not."
Where are you from?"
"Where are you
"Where are your
nationality are you?"
"Where are you
Where are you from?"
Uh...I don't know...white."
"White's not a
nationality are you?"
"Well, I can
see that. Are you Vietnamese, or Korean?"
"What kind of
white are you?
"I don't know.
"I'm just Asian."
My point, obviously,
is that it doesn't matter. I don't have a
problem with my ethnicity, nor am I ashamed of it, I just
don't think it's relevant. I have never asked someone,
upon meeting them, "Are you Irish? Are you Jewish?
Are you Italian? Are you German? Are you
Portuguese?" Who cares. I mean, so what if they
say, "Yes, I'm German." Now what? What am I
going to do with that information? Will I sleep better
at night? Will it verify or disprove some stereotype I
had in my mind? Will it make me like or dislike the
person? Should I give myself a mental gold star if I
had guessed right? Would I continue to impress that
person by saying something smart like, "My brother-in-law is
German too." Yeah...and? Let's move on.
I'm an Aries.

I can drive stick shift,
but not up a hill.
I am in love with Paul
Walker. Our kids would be normal size. Update:
I have given up on Paul since he's never returned my phone
calls. No matter; my new love is McDreamy...Patrick
Dempsey for those of you who are uninformed. I actually
have to rewind Grey's Anatomy every time he appears in a
scene because all I can think about is, "You're so hot," when I
see him that I miss what he's saying.
I would meet George
Michael in a public men's room anytime. FREEEK!
If I had a million zillion
dollars and could be anything I wanted to be I would be a
forensic pathologist...no shit! I have only two philanthropic
bones in my body, and those are reserved for kids and animals.
Anyone who abuses these beautiful, precious beings deserves the
worst, torturous deaths possible. I realize forensic
pathologists don't actually get the pleasure of killing these
people, but they provide irrefutable scientific evidence of
guilt (unless you're O.J. Simpson, who can't be reached for
comment because he's too busy desperately fulfilling his life's
mission looking for his wife's real killers).
My absolute favorite web
The Straight Dope - I love smart people, and Cecil Adams is
the ultimate polymath. Not only is he knowledgeable on
every subject from the ridiculous to the sublime, he imparts
his wisdom with humor and wit.
The Skeptic's Dictionary - A logician's paradise! Critical
thinking, logical fallacies, and just the facts, ma'am!
Urban Legends Reference Pages - Can you help save little
Jessica by forwarding an e-mail to everyone you know? Did a
couple spend the night at a Las Vegas hotel, then discover a
dead body under their bed in the morning? Is Snapple owned
by the KKK? Every urban legend or myth you have ever heard
of, and some you haven't, debunked or confirmed.
My favorite cartoon
characters are Hello Kitty, Calvin and Hobbes, and Winnie the
Thank God for Photoshop!!!
