This week's victim is Kazyeeqen! Her interview will run until October 26th!

Please remember a few simple rules:
-Ask only a few questions at a time.
-At the end of the week, the interviewee will pick who gets interviewed next out of those who participated in his/her thread.
-Please don't argue with the interviewee if she/he says something that you disagree with. It's an interview, not a debate.
-The interviewee can decline to answer any question, and anyone chosen to be interviewed can refuse.

Here are some basic facts to get you started:

Quote:
-Real first name (if you are comfortable sharing):

Jessica

-Age:

26

-Sex/Gender Identity:

Lady

-Relationship status:

Hitched

-Location (as specific as you are comfortable being)

North Idaho

-Religious beliefs (or lack thereof):

Lack thereof

-Political leanings:

Hippy

-Are you a vegetarian or vegan (or something else)?

Vegan. Though I certainly am something else! :wink:

-What is the meaning behind your username?

It means dragon in some language that may or may not really exist. It was on a list I found. There were also translations for dragon in Elvin and Klingon on this list. I was probably 14 when I picked it for my very first email account. It was a phase, but I still have the email and the name is still cool. I mean, q with no u? Awesome, right?!

-Have you ever met anyone famous?

Nope.

-Do you live with any companion animals?

Nope.

-Where is your favorite place that you have visited?

I got to go to Death Valley once and the Mojave and I really liked it. I didn't realize I liked the desert, always assumed it would be uncomfortable and boring, but it was really amazing. Also Hawaii was very neat-o, weather wise and what with the beaches and such.

-What do you enjoy most about being veg*n?

I neither like nor dislike being vegan. I'm content with my choice, but it's a default now, not something I actively like. Like being a girl. I just am a girl, you know?

-With whom would you most love to have dinner?

I'm not good at this kind of question. I'm happy having dinner with my husband, I'll stick with that.

-Do you have any secret talents?

None of my talents are secret because if I have a talent I'll tell anyone who will listen all about it.

You wanna hear about some of my talents?

-What dish/recipe can you make that knocks people's socks off?

Banana bread. Zucchini fritters. Also tortilla soup (it knocks my socks off at least, I dunno if anyone else is quite as impressed) I generally receive positive responses from my cooking, and I don't think they're just humoring me.

-What do you do to cheer yourself up when you're feeling blue?

Distraction. teevee usually works, but then the sadness is often there when I stop watching. Sleeping if it's late enough or a good time for a nap. Sometimes doing something helps, like sewing or cooking, but a lot of times it's not distracting enough. I sing songs in my head if I'm sad at work or while doing something that's not occupying my brain enough.

-What's your biggest cooking/baking disaster?

Oh, I've got one! I was canning rhubarb jam and all the 1/2 pints were in the canner on our little stove when there was what I believe to be a micro-singularity in the burner that punched a hole in the bottom of the canner and water started pouring out of it into the stove and I was alone and had no idea what happened or what caused it to happen and there was water everywhere and the jam didn't get canned and it was all very disappointing.

-What's the one food/product, that you'd love to "veg*nize"?

Halvah. It seems like a hassle to make, and all the stuff in the store has egg and honey. I'll do it, someday, but I'm thinking it won't turn out fantastically the first time and I'll be too discouraged to try again. Plus tahini is expensive.

Do you mean the fictional one? If so, yes. The ash was made of newspaper clippings and they stapled leaves to the trees. Don't believe the leaves. It's all lies!

Ninjas. While the romanticized version of pirates is pretty cool, I can't help but remember that they were mostly filthy murdering scurvy-ridden sea dogs who no respectable lady would get anywhere near. Ninjas, while probably also murdering, were at least students of a serious discipline and I tend to think they were of a more elite class of menfolk.

How much can you bench press?

If you could steal someone else's voice, whose would it be?

Do you think Riki Lindhome might want to consider eating a few more carbs?

Is it true what they say about Idaho?

What word are you most likely to misspell?

You're a very crafty (as in making crafts) person. Is there one thing in particular that you really aspire to make at some point in your life, but feel is way too much of a challenge right now?

How many different ostriches would you need to assimilate them into American life?

Name three different animals/objects/peoples that have bitten or clawed you, please.

Now this is just a guess, but I'm thinking between 50 and 2,000. Somewhere in there.

Can I take somebody's voice just to keep them from having it? Cause I might want to consider that. I wouldn't have to use it, would I?

She's thin, I'd hope she isn't hurting herself, but is it even reasonable to think that a lady actor is maintaining a healthy body weight? Self-deprivation is part of the crazy fame game, sadly, isn't it?

I'm just been trying to get to a point where I can make consistent, professional-quality clothing that is distinctive, fitted, and awesome. I'm not there yet, so that's what I'm aiming for. I'd like to try a dress or three this winter, and hopefully I'm up to that. Something I think I could do someday but maybe not yet are nice fitted pants.

It was many years ago, so I really don't remember. I'm sure it was just something we had in the house, potatoes or pasta or something.

I think most people do, ever since I was on the Weezer forums as a youth. It is acceptable, please continue. *waves hand*

Different kinds of ostriches or just individual ostriches? Cause I'd say either 4 or 17, depending on what you mean.

I lead a relatively unscathed existence. I was bitten by an akita (dog) and scratched by a couple cats. I mostly injury myself with myself. I scratch myself with my own fingernails so often it's embarrassing. I should know where my own damn limbs are, shouldn't I?

Sure, if someone gave it to me. I don't see any reason not to.

Hell yes! Swinging is one of life's joys, and reusing tires in the environmentally sound choice.

Maybe, but I wouldn't let that stop me! It's not really dry anyway, they use water. I think... I dunno, I've never had something dry-cleaned.

Oh, I bought a dress from an antique store that's supposed to be dry-cleaned only. I only wore it once and haven't washed it, but I'll just throw it in the wash and then line dry like I do with everything else. Gotta be tough in this house!

When a mouse gets into the house and poops all over everything and then I have to move all my stuff to clean and it's so frustrating I just wish we were beings made of pure energy.

Pineapple. I guess it could probably make it if somebody really hustled, but it seems pretty unlikely.
