Vegan- How do you spend your working week?
I work funky hours as a residential counselor caring for people with profound mental, medical, and physical disabilities. I just got off a 20-hour shift, as a matter of fact. So if this whole questionnaire reads like an oxygen-deprived turtle wrote it, that's why. (Okay, fine, that's not why at all, but we're going to blame it on that, okay?)
- How long have you been veg*n?
Just over 12 million seconds. Yes, I counted them. Be impressed, be very impressed.- How did you find VeggieBoards?
Telepathy.- What is the meaning behind your username?
Well, I'm partially charmed. And partially charming
as well. Also, I want people to think of the opening lines of Semicharmed Life by Third Eye Blind when they think of me. You know, "I'm packed and I'm holding." That way everyone will think I'm a drug-using gun-toting menace, and will steer well clear of me. Unfortunately, it seems most people just think of the "do do do" part. So I guess they think I'm melodic?- Have you ever met anyone famous?
John Travolta and Robert Duvall because they filmed part of A Civil Action at my father's workplace. Tony Bennett because, well, I don't know why. It was Atlantic City, what do you want? One of the co-founders of Reddit is a friend of mine (though he treated my brother as if he were famous after finding out my brother designed and skinned the "gold deagle" in Counterstrike. Or... Something. I'm not fluent in that particular dialect of Nerd.) I also know a lot of authors, but I dunno if people here would know them. Matt Damon, too. He and I used to go to the same Starbucks in The Village when I lived in NYC.- Do you live with any companion animals?
I live with a mini-food chain. A dog, a cat, and a rat.- Do you live with any companion humans?
At the moment, my father and brother. Soon, I'll be moving in with my boyfriend.- Where is your favorite place that you have visited?
I feel tempted to act classy and say somewhere in Europe. And don't get me wrong, my trips to Europe were fabulous. But I REALLY loved going to Taos, New Mexico for Christmas. They have these fantastic pueblo fires on Christmas Eve and, to be endlessly cliche about it, it's pure magic.- Ninjas or pirates?
What for? As drinking buddies = pirates. For sexy times = ninjas. (Unless, of course, we're talking about fake
pirates. Then it's Johnny Depp for BOTH situations.)- What do you enjoy most about being veg*n?
What an odd question. That's like asking "What do you enjoy most about not abusing children?" It's just the right thing to do, yanno? It's all good.- What is your favorite VB post?
I have to pick a SINGLE post? But I've posted SO many times, and I'm SO entertaining... Fine, THIS post. This post right here is my favorite. Because it's all about ME, see?- With whom would you most love to have dinner?
Myself, about 15 or 20 years in the future. I think we could learn a lot from each other.
- Do you have any secret talents?
No. I make certain that my talents are very, very public. What the hell good are secret
talents? No good, that's what.- What dish/recipe can you make that knocks people's socks off?
*shrug* I live with men, it doesn't take much.- What's your favorite restaurant?
My kitchen. The End.- What do you do to cheer yourself up when you're feeling blue?
There's nothing in the world half a bottle of wine can't fix. NOTHING. And if there is? Then a whole bottle of wine will fix it for sure.
- What's your biggest cooking/baking disaster?
I once left a coffee cake in the oven for something like two hours. My brother was HORRIFIED when I tried to throw it out. He took a big knife, sawed it open, and ate the middle like it was a gift from the heavens. Does that still count as a disaster?- What's the one food/product, that you'd love to "veg*nize"?
Soy chai from Starbucks. It's literally the one thing I mourn, in a really pathetic way and on a consistent basis.
