Kurt Vonnegut. That was a fun question. His name comes after one of the most famous sentences in American literature. It is a quote made by Mr. Robot, a character who is voiced by actor Rami Malek.
“The only people in hell are the people who weren’t in the room when I said I’d take them out.”
What is your dream job?
I think of a job I want all the time. But I really want to be a writer and writer is a job where you spend more time writing than you spend on your actual day job. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to spend quite a bit of time writing this year. It’s a challenge sometimes. I’ve been lucky enough to work my way into writing full-time. I am writing the pilot script for the first hour of my new show, Better Call Saul. It seems that after five years of working on it, the network really wanted to find a way to use it as a show. I think that would be a huge challenge to me – writing, writing. So it’s hard to say what my dream job would be. It would be fun and exciting, but I’m not looking for a job right now. I’m really in the process of exploring what my dream job might be. The last thing on my mind right now is getting into a fight with a guy named Seth Godin who is a famous author and an author who has written the new book ‘The 4-Hour Workweek.’ I can’t even begin to guess what that means in terms of writing. He’s just an author. But I think all of us have in our back pocket the ability to be able to think of so many things that we would like to do. Not being a writer can be a blessing. If I hadn’t written for years, it would suck.

Are we in a house with ghosts?” But we’re all going on rides of our own making. It’s a great experience. The best part about it is watching
