So I'm leafing through the September issue of Better Homes and Gardens before I toss it into the recycling bin and come across this gem from Patrick Mele on page 52:

Best way to spend $50 "A bottle of Brunello di Montalcino. You can't go wrong with a good bottle of wine!"

Clearly I am the wrong audience for this magazine. I have nothing against good wine but if I had a a spare $50 I'd put it toward repairing either of our cars.

That made sense to me and I took it as a warning not to learn too much about the real people behind the characters I love.

This is so true. Back when I was writing Star Trek Voyager fanfic (nearly 15 years ago, which is like, 150 internet years), a lot of information was disseminated within the fandom about what a jackass in RL the actor is who played Chakotay, and it really colored my view on the character.

I've done my best since then to avoid learning too much about actors. There's only a rare few I care to follow on Facebook and they seldom talk about their personal lives.
