John P. Barker spends most of his time running amuck, working on an ever-expanding novel, petting his twenty-five pound cat, and tutoring kids of all ages.  He'd really like to see his life hit some sort ofroutine, but with the advent of a new girlfriend and total family chaos, he predicts that this won't happen for a while.  To keep his sanity he plays lots of games (he feels that nothing is moresatisfying than blowing up a zombie critter), reads everything possible (currently alternating time between Atlas Shrugged and comic books), and plays with a barrage of toys.  He is guilty of having anextensive R2-D2 collection-much to the chagrin of the new girlfriend.
