  I’m an extremest.  I always have been.  I honestly feel like (without sounding to schizophrenic) that there are two women living inside of me.  One of them is an absolute addict.  She loves sugar, cheese, bread with olive oil, drinking a bottle of wine every other day and smoking.  Ohhh… I do love her!  [...]
