1. What is the last movie you saw in a theater?
“The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”

2. If you could create your own reality TV show, what would it be?
Something dealing with anger management — I would love to watch people beating each other with foam bats. You wouldn’t even need a plot!

3. What was your favorite Crayola crayon color?
Tickle Me Pink (for the name). When I was a kid, I loved Hot Magenta.

4. When it comes to chocolate, do you prefer dark of milk?
Dark. The new dark chocolate M&Ms? Long overdue. I could use some right now. …

5. How old were you when you had your first kiss?
Eight. I kissed Timmy Bower during a class movie in the second grade. The teacher totally threw me out of the classroom and made me sit in the empty classroom across the hall and do extra work. I was such a dork — I was happier doing the project than watching the film!

6. If you could be a fly on the wall during a major historical meeting, which one would you choose to observe?
I’d love to go meet the brainiacs who have drafted so much hate-filled legislation, but alas, if I’m a fly, then that means I can’t be holding a two-by-four when I hear phrases like “sex is between a man and a woman only,” etc. I don’t know — I would’ve loved to see Shrub Senior throw up on the prime minister of Japan. I have high aspirations like that. 😉

7. What is something you do for the benefit of others?
Not kill them I get over things very quickly and extend forgiveness when it is requested (and even when it’s not). I smile even when I’m not feeling it — I’m not the only person who has hard days, and sometimes a random smile from someone can turn my day around, so I try to do that for others, in turn.

8. Have you ever had a dirty dream about someone you know online?
Heh. That answer is an unequivocal YES … and wouldn’t YOU like to know who?!?!

9. You have $50 to spend on lunch. Where do you go and what do you eat?
Buffet lunch at a strip club Actually, I’d love to try McCormick & Schmick’s for a decent filet mignon or Chilean sea bass.

10. Do you have any nicknames?
Not anymore. 😉

On iTunes: “Groove Salad” radio

1. Do you own any power tools?
Care to elaborate on what kind? 😉 My neighbor dropped by yesterday to see if I had electricity in the bedroom/bathroom (’cause he didn’t). My electricity was fine (although my oven doesn’t work. Go figure), and I had some, uh, power tools very visibly lying around. He tried very hard not to notice. 😉

2. Did you pass your driver’s test on your first try?
Hell no. I was relying on Mom and me both wearing short skirts (that’s how you passed at the center I chose), but leave it to me to get a woman cop with no sense of humor. I’d only driven twice before I took the test (I’d aced the written part, though). My friends had told me the steps of the test in order, and the cop confused me by cutting out a step I was already prepared to do. So, the car went up on a curb and she screamed, “YOU. FAIL!!!” Then she yelled at my mom, “GET THIS CAR OFF OF THIS CURB!” I passed the second time around — I didn’t drive at all between the first and second tests, but I did way better. And, I had a nice male cop who appreciated two women in short skirts. 😉 I remember him telling me I could drive faster than the posted speed limit!

3. Would you rather have a constant itch or a constant headache?
The headache. Actually, I’ve lived with tension headaches and now I have a banging toothache, so the feeling of someone tapping a nail into the back of my eyeball isn’t exactly an unfamiliar one. At least you can drug yourself for a headache!

4. What color looks best on you?
I love to wear black, although I found myself doing a full load of pink laundry last night. But my best colors are blues and greens — they help my eyes to pop.

5. List 3 foods you don’t eat.
Onions, although I can deal with them fried or diced into miniscule pieces. I would gander that I don’t necessarily hate any food but, rather, the way it is prepared at certain food establishments.

6. In the shower, do you use bar soap or liquid soap?
Liquid. Right now, it’s Bath and Body Works’ aromatherapy line — the eucalyptus-spearmint. Usually, I use the blue Softsoap for Men — I love men’s scents more than women’s.

7. When is the last time your rode a bike?
I had a Sweet Thunder 2 and I was the SHIT, I tell you! Pink and white streamers and a little white basket with pink flowers. Damn, I rocked at age 8. I had just learned how to ride without training wheels when we moved to a place without a driveway, and my family gave away the bike because I wasn’t allowed to ride on the street. I hated them for that.

8. Have you signed the petition over at yet?
Yes, although my passions are for more domestic poverty issues. Like, where was the fucking system when I had nowhere to turn?

9. Have you ever had braces?

10. If you could re-live one year of your life, which year would it be?
1984. Something very bad happened to me that year that has caused me recurring grief every day of my life, and I’d love to go back WITH HINDSIGHT and try to prevent it.
