Every single time I watch an episode of Breaking Bad or American Horror Story, I think about all the orgasms I’d be having if my crush on a writer’s brain could be physically expressed.

Pleasure center, indeed. Funny thing is, I also find something about Mr. Gilligan physically attractive. It’s not just because of the brain crush; there’s kind of a nerdy-hot thing going on there. Yes? And looking around the writers’ room, he’s not the only one…
