So Rose has an awesome idea: Comment on a post where she answers five interview questions, and she'll ask you five questions of her own, only if you offer to do the same for others. So, here goes.
First, the Q&A.
1. Susur calls. He's coming over later, just to hang. What do you cook for him?
Oh, man. OH, MAN. First off, I would love to know your plans for how I can make Susur a friend who would come all the way to Burlington to just hang. Because I feel like that's something that I would very much like to happen.
So I've been thinking about this for a bit, and I've come to the conclusion that I wouldn't cook a damn thing. Ah, but I would MAKE stuff. If he moseyed on over, and it was no where near time for a meal, I would serve up a batch of homemade chocolate cinnamon cayenne ice cream - you know the icy wonder that I'm talking about, lady. I'd probably pair that with a sauce made from my cinnamon peanut butter. Just because I think it would fucking rock.
Since I tend to love the flavours and type of cooked cuisine that Lee specializes in, I would take a complete left turn and prepare something completely different. Yup, I'd uncook him a few raw food vegan dishes. Veg sushi made with jicama rice as a starter, and a zucchini lasagne with cashew-cheese as a main. And then that freakfest ice cream for dessert.
2. So, uh . . . what's with you and the monkeys?
There's nothing like a prehensile tail.
Really, though, when I step back from the monkey cuteness and really think about it, their genetic proximity to the human animal is a constant reminder of the respect that we have for the beings that we share the planet with. And they're also a constant reminder as to one of the reasons why I haven't eaten anything with a face in over a decade.
I fear I have just outed myself as a hippy. Damn you, Rosemary!
3. Which embarassing teen film did you feel captured the essence of your experience but when you watched it as an adult, made you cringe?
The Breakfast Club. I was so sure that I was that geek that Brian represented. Looking back, I had such a distorted view of myself, it makes me laugh. But I really value that as well, because I don't think I'd be the awesome ass (with an awesome ass) that's before you now without putting all that crap and pressure and need to people-please on myself, you know?
4. If you could go back and deliver a message to your twenty year old self, what would you say?
I gots three:
- The Pocket Fisherman really IS the best Popiel invention ever.
- Stop being a fool and let yourself fall in love already.
5. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
This is something that we really shouldn't talk about.
I've already said too much.
Damn you, Rosemary!
Okay, I would love to be a pre-cog, but only if I could control it. I really am that much of a control freak.
And now, the give and take. Want to take part? Leave a comment with your email address and I'll make up a few questions for you to answer.
