The first thing people ask is, "What does 'mishi2x' mean?" A long while back, I had a slight obsession with mafia movies, Scarface, Godfather, Goodfellas, etc. OK, I still do. I love watching all that fast living, meteoric rises to the top, and the inevitable fall. The drama. Oh, the drama. Anyway, there's a character in Goodfellas called Jimmy Two Times. He said everything twice. "I'm goin' go get da papers... get da papers." I thought that was hysterical. So, mishi2x is actually mishi two times, or mishi mishi. Whichever you prefer.
I decided to grab the questions from the American Express print ads and answer them as my way of telling you about myself. I've always liked those ads, and enjoyed reading the answers.
