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 home!

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 happens:

"Where are you from?"

"L.A."

"No you're not."

"I'm not?  OK, I'm not."

"No, really.  Where are you from?"

"L.A."

"Where are you really from?"

"L.A."

"Where are your parents from?"

"L.A."

"What nationality are you?"

"Why?"

"I'm just wondering."

"Where are you from?"

"Chicago."

"No, really.  Where are you from?"

"Chicago."

"What nationality are you?"

"Me?  Uh...I don't know...white."

"White's not a nationality."

"So, what nationality are you?"

"Asian."

"Well, I can see that.  Are you Vietnamese, or Korean?"

"What kind of white are you?

"I don't know.  Just white."

"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 don't believe in the zodiac.

My favorite movies are: 13 Going on 30, 9 to 5, Beauty and the Beast,  The Bodyguard, Boyz N the Hood, The Bridges of Madison County, A Bronx Tale, Clerks, Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, Driving Miss Daisy, The Fox and the Hound, Funny Farm, Ghost, Gone With the Wind, Goodfellas, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Forrest Gump, Good Morning, Vietnam, Grease, Grease 2, Groundhog Day, Heaven Can Wait, Home Alone, Into the Night, Lilo & Stitch, Meet the Parents, Million Dollar Baby, The Muppet Movie, The Music Man, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, The Prince of Egypt, The Princess Bride, Pulp Fiction, The Rescuers, Revenge of the Nerds, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Ruthless People, Saw, The Shawshank Redemption, Shrek, Shrek 2, Sixteen Candles, Somewhere in Time, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, The Sixth Sense, The Sound of Music, A Summer Place, Thelma & Louise, There's Something About Mary, Titanic, Tootsie, Trading Places, and Vacation.

Judge Judy is my hero.

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 sites are:

http://www.straightdope.com/
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.
http://www.skepdic.com/
The Skeptic's Dictionary - A logician's paradise!  Critical thinking, logical fallacies, and just the facts, ma'am!
http://www.snopes.com/
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 Pooh.

Thank God for Photoshop!!!

I don't believe in God...or do I?
