I have some very sad news.
This is the last of the questions.
I know some of you have been basing your life and rearranging your schedule around these posts, desperate to learn more about me.
But all good things must come to an end, right?
Maybe in 10 years, I'll do a question post again. But until then, savor every last drop of these upcoming answers.
Barry asked, "What's your favourite food?"
I am obsessed with hummus. I could eat it every day of the week. In fact, I think I have actually done that before.
"Favourite childhood memory?"
One of my favorite childhood memories is from summer camp when I was 11 years old. My friend and I snuck out of our cabin in the middle of the night and ran for a couple miles outside the campground into a sprawling meadow. We climbed a huge tree and sat there talking for a while. All of the sudden a huge line of horses started galloping underneath us. They must have been wild horses because we weren't anywhere near a ranch or farm. They didn't belong to our camp. No one was even riding them. It was magical and breathtaking.
"What one person has had the greatest positive influence on you?"
This is a tricky question because several people have changed my life in small ways. But I guess the person who influenced it the most was my journalism professor in college.
He was a grizzly old Pulitzer-prize winning reporter who had worked at the Chicago Tribune for 30 years, covered every single war since Vietnam, and was educated at Harvard University. Impressive credentials aside, he was also rumored to be the meanest man on campus. I was terrified to take his class.
The first class we had, he scowled and roared at us and gave us an impossible assignment every single kid in class practically failed. The next day, almost half the class had dropped. I stayed because I needed the intro-to-journalism class to begin my degree. It was the best decision I ever made in my life. I had never learned so much from one person. I worked my ass off in that class and he genuinely appreciated my effort. He went from being a grizzy bear to a teddy bear.
By the end of the class, we both thought the world of each other. I took every single one of his courses for the next three years, until I graduated. Right before I graduated college, he invited me to have a chat in his office and he gave me a beer (totally illegal because we were on campus, lol). During that meeting, he told me I had been his most favorite student he had ever had in his decade of being a professor. He said he was proud of me. It brought me to tears.
Sadly, we don't keep in touch anymore. But I will never forget how he rekindled my passion for journalism and how he sharpened my writing skills tremendously.
and (the next question)
"Who was "the one who got away"? (I think we all have one)."
I don't have one! Maybe I'm too young? I hate to think of having one some day...
"What's an ideal night for you?"
Curling up with Rian on the couch with a home cooked meal, glass of red wine, and watching a classic film.
"If you could sleep with anyone besides Rian or Morrissey who would it be? (If your answer is me, thank you in advance)."
Hahaha! Dammit...no Morrissey? Well, um. I guess James Dean. They don't have bad asses like him in Hollywood anymore.
"How did you get to be so Fucking Fabulous? Did you take an online course or something?"
No, I didn't take a course. But you just gave me a BRILLIANT idea on how to make money these days! Hahaha.
"What makes your hair so shiny?"
I think it's because I actually have multi-colored hair. My hair is made up of black, red, blonde, and brown strands. I think that makes in shine in the light. I don't use hair product.
"Does Bigfoot exist?"
Probably. Nothing shocks me anymore.
"Do you believe men and women can just be friends, without one having 'those thoughts' about the other? I'm not talking about our friendship though because, umm, never mind."
Every situation is different. I think it can be done, but it totally depends on the two individuals.
"What are your five best qualities?"
I like my teeth, my eyes, my writing skills, my hair, and my ability to quickly detect bullshit.
"If you could be doing anything right now what would it be?"
I would be visiting my friend Jonny in Branson because I miss him terribly.
btd asked, "How do you sleep? On your back, tummy, side?"
I sleep on my back. I can't sleep any other way.
"Have you ever broken someone's heart?"
So I've been told. It weirds me out. I don't like to think of someone being sad because of me.
"Why you no make youtube videos! I'd love to see your beautiful face!"
That's really sweet of you. I actually don't have a convenient way of making youtube videos anymore. My video recorder hasn't been working recently and my 10-year-old laptop doesn't have a camera attached to it. I'm so poor!
W (Two years ago I dropped my subscription to Elle and got W instead. It was a wise decision because I really enjoy the articles in W a lot more. It's a very educational magazine in regards to fashion news).
Jos asked, "What kind of music do you like?"
I love all kinds of music! I think the real question is what don't I like, which includes heavy metal and hardcore rap. Some of my favorite musicians include Morrissey/The Smiths, The Beatles, Neil Young, and Lily Allen.
"Being half-indian (i'm fascinated by the culture) what kind of religion do you practise?"
I'm a boring Lutheran. When my dad came to the USA 41 years ago, he was Hindu. He got invited to live at a Christian hippie commune as soon as he arrived and they converted him. When he married my mom, he became Lutheran.
Ever since I was a kid though, I have been obsessed with reincarnation. I like to think it exists.
"How did you meet your boyfriend?"
Rian and I sat next to each other in our American Literature class during my last year of college. I was actually dating someone else at the time. We never talked, but apparently Rian had a big crush on me.
As soon as I broke up with the other guy, Rian sent me a friend request on facebook and a message. We were facebook pen pals for a few months until he finally worked up the courage to ask me out. Hehe.
Fati asked, "I don't know if it's too late to ask questions, but I have been dying to know what was real and what was fake from your post from December. I'm not actually expecting you to reveal, as that's quite a bit of personal info, but just wanted to let you know I've been wondering for forever!"
You're right, dahhhhling, those answers will go to the grave with me! (Or until they are released in my best-selling memoir. Whatever happens first).
Alicia asked, "If you could live in any setting in any time in history, where, when and why would you choose it?"
I have so many different answers to this question! To think of just one scenario is torture.
I would have loved to have been at Versailles with Marie Antoinette during her prime. The dresses women wore back then were spectacular and the hair was outrageous and the lifestyle was insanely fabulous. Of course, things ended badly...
I would also have loved to have been a 20-something-year-old in London during the swinging 60s. I don't think it gets much more glamorous and fabbing fuckulous than that!
Anyways, I want to thank you all for submitting questions and keeping me preoccupied while I struggled with a personal issue this past week. I am feeling better. I'm not as unhappy anymore. Love you!
