Here is a typical day in the life of Willem Dafoe: He wakes up early, usually around 5 or 6. He meditates, has a cup of coffee and writes in his journal for a while. Then he checks his email, does some yoga and makes breakfast. If he's prepping for a film, which he almost always is, he'll go over his lines for a couple of hours. If he's not, he'll read a book, take a walk around his West Village neighborhood or — his favorite activity of all — do some laundry.
"It's one of my great pleasures," he says, dead serious. "I love it so much, I have to resist the urge to do a lot of hand washing when I'm in hotels. Sometimes, when I'm in a strange city, I go to laundromats. I did that in France recently — I was shooting a movie there — and it was a beautiful experience. For some reason, people are really nice to me in laundromats and I have these great encounters. Talk about fun and sexy …"

Y'all got Jason and Federica to agree on a new moderator in the same week, someone get me a fainting couch!
Boring behind-the-scenes glimpse: I started a thread about adding a moderator five years ago in the staff area and someone would reply ~once a year or so but never everyone at the same time about the same person.
The 'Ayes' have it.
I should mention a couple things.
First, Aaron broke his elbow (hairline but inside the joint) the day before out wedding while hanging those string lights from the ceiling in our wedding venue. He missed a step coming down the scaffold about 3 feet off the ground and fell back onto his wrist. He finished hanging the lights, had the rehearsal dinner, then I demanded we go to the ER. He got the plaster splint that night and we got home at like 2am. He only needed it for 2 weeks; it's already gone and he's doing physical therapy to fix his range of motion the rest of the way. But the stories are forever.
Second, a few intros. That's @Brian doing the "tada" pose in front of us on stage. He had just brought forward our rings for us. Aaron's father is giving a toast on stage. And our neighbor Ashley was the officiant. It was at the Jam Handy building in Detroit, which is an event space.
