This week's interviewee will be Hazelnut!
This interview will likely run from 6/20-6/27.

Rules:
-Ask only a few questions at a time so the interviewee doesn't get overwhelmed and everyone has a chance to ask questions.
-At the end of the week, Hazelnut will choose next week's interviewee from her thread's participants. So, if you want to be interviewed, ask questions! (You can always decline if you are asked).
-Hazelnut is free to skip any questions she wants.

Here are some basics to get you started:

Quote:
-Real first name (if you are comfortable sharing):
Candice, but I'll also respnd to "Hey, you!"

-Age
30 ...but it really seems like I should be in my early twenties or teens. When someone says something bad about teenagers, I feel insulted. I still think of other 30-year-olds as "old people."

-Sex/Gender Identity
Female, but I don't fit that gender role.

-Relationship status
Single

-Location (as specific as you are comfortable being)
Columbia, South Carolina, USA

-Religious beliefs (or lack thereof)
I believe things are possible. But that's it. I doubt our human brains are capable of understanding the nature of life, a deity, our creation, etc... I'm sure it all makes sense to whatever/whoever is in charge, but I'm not going to worry about it.

-Political leanings
Democrat

-Are you a vegetarian or vegan (or something else)?
Vegan... 3.5 years now!

-What is the meaning behind your username?
I was LovelyPerv on here for a long while... but it was misinterpreted too much. It came from other message boards before VB, it made sense in those other environments, but here it makes me sound promiscuous...
I picked Hazelnut because I LOVE them, and I'm eating a ton of them right now. My local grocery store marked down all their hazelnuts to $1 per pound in December, so I bought all that they had.

-Have you ever met anyone famous?
Bands:
Hung out with GWAR in a bar for a short while.
godhead members brought me to a bad party, and I met up with them a few times during their tours.
Misfits were... unfriendly.
I don't know if this counts, but I regularly watch celebs planes land at my airport. The DJ AM And Travis Barker crash happened very close to our hangar!!!

-Do you live with any companion animals?
2 dogs and 4 cats.
My house is a circus (pardon the term).
As I type this, something is going on in the kitchen. I think someone found either a new "toy" or a bug.

-Do you live with any companion humans?
Not anymore. I'm single and free to sit in my boxers/panties with the A/C on full blast and a bowl of Oreo's in my lap and no one can say $#!1

-Where is your favorite place that you have visited?
My house.
Seriously, I hate traveling. I've been dragged to the Northeast, Southwest, Southeast, Northwest, and the Midwest. I've been to caverns, pits, wetlands, beaches, monuments, D.C., New York City, etc... The whole time I couldn't wait to get back home. I have to travel for my job and I hate it. If I won the lottery, I'd have my groceries delivered and I'd never leave the house again. Gun-to-my-head I'd have to say The Smithsonian Museum was my favorite stop.

-What do you enjoy most about being veg*n?
I get to feel better than everyone.
It's an honest answer, and don't tell me that none of you have never ever felt it!
I don't act that way. I'm actually very laid back, non-preachy, and normal. People say I'm "not like other vegans." (<--- even though they've never met other vegans)
But still, I feel like I've surpassed and overcome something that people around me will never be able to achieve. I've accomplished something that they don't even think they can try. It feels good.

-With whom would you most love to have dinner?
My Mom.
Another honest answer. She lives so far away, that I rarely get to see her.
What? You wanted a celebrity? I'd be too self-conscious to enjoy the meal at all!!! Plus it would involve traveling (see later answer).

-Do you have any secret talents?
I have the awesome ability to be a total slob, and a total neat-freak at the same time!!! I rock! I drive my co-workers absolutely bonkers with this one. Over the course of a work day, I'll surround myself with piles of empty boxes, loose papers, bits of plastic and trash, until I can barely move. But... All the items on my desk must be geometric, symmetrical, evenly spaced, perfectly clean and nobody had better move anything!!!!!!1 Plus, all my products are perfect, and way superior. My standards are higher than my employer's ... even if you can't see any of it beneath my trash and junk.

-What dish/recipe can you make that knocks people's socks off?
I have just recently learned to roll veg sushi!!!
Oh... I have discovered a hidden talent...
I made it in large batches, and make sushi "snack plates."

-What's your favorite restaurant?
Lamb's Bread Vegan Cafe
It's local, and only here in Columbia, SC.
Its totally vegan, and has an odd atmosphere... Some African, Jamaican, Egyptian, South American... blended themes happening there. But its operated by awesome people, and the fake meaties they sell are to die for!

-What do you do to cheer yourself up when you're feeling blue?
I call my Mom. We can easily chat for an hour, and I love every minute of it. She's an awesome person, and she doesn't mind if I go on and on about some strange thing my cat did today. And, she's great for sympathy if I stub my toe.

-What's your biggest cooking/baking disaster?
Green Curry
It was to be a cauliflower, potato, and green pea dish, with a green curry paste and coconut milk.
I don't know what went wrong, but that dish actually put me off of cooked cauliflower for the past few years. I still can't stand the idea of cooked cauliflower.

-What's the one food/product, that you'd love to "veg*nize"?
Chicken Livers.
I'm sorry, but I grew up with fried chicken livers covered in gravy made from the grease. I've never seen a fake meatie item that was supposed to be like a liver.

I have no shame...
Ask anything!

Have you ever dropped your cell phone into a toilet?

Have you ever been rock climbing (real rock climbing, not in a gym)?

No... But I did once drop my fork into the toilet.
I couldn't get it out because it worked its way into the inner bend. After several months of trying to dislodge it I finally bought another toilet.

Nope. I've never been the athletic type.
Never done it in a gym either... as trying to be athletic while a bunch of friends and strangers stare at my rear and judge every move I make just doesn't sound like a good time.

I would LOVE to see and hear long extinct prehistoric animals!!! Not just dinosaurs, and especially ancient sea life! I'm need a giant mosquito net and 3 gallons of bug spray, though.

I had a shelf over my toilet.
I walked in with my small saucer plate w/ a slice of pie I was eating, and a metal fork.
I set my plate on the shelf, sat on the toilet, did my pee, and flushed.
I asked "How did a pee clog the toilet?" then I asked, "Hey, where'd my fork go?"
Using the plunger made it clang around inside the toilet.

Sounds like you're like me. Nothing normal ever happens to you

Sunrises or sunsets?

Peanut butter or Almond Butter?

What do you like to put on your veggie burger?

Do you say "y'all"?

Sunrise, but that's only because my house heats up to 90 degrees or higher in the evenings. Right now, it's 6pm here, and I'm naked with a fan blowing on me and a tall glass of ice water. Cool sunrises feel so refreshing after a hot night before.

Almond butter!!!
But, I'm on a super tight budget and can't buy it all the time.
When I do buy it, it is a glorious treat!!!

The bare minimum is mustard and some sort of picklage.

Sometimes, BBQ sauce.

If I can, I'll pile on lettuce, tomato, BBQ sauce, vegan cheese, red onion, pickle, green onion, and some potato chips.

Potato chips on a burger are awesome!!!

Actually, I say "You all."


I first learned to speak in Louisiana, and said "Y'all" as a baby learning to talk.
Then, we moved to Minnesota where they say "You guys."
I somehow blended the two into "You all" and it stuck into adulthood.

When I have to leave the house, its to go to work and run errands unless a friend forces me somewhere. I always have a good time with friends, but I'm still in love with being home.

I have to admit, though, that I'm thinking of asking my boss for August 13th off so I can go to the Peanut Party Festival in Pelion, SC.

I'm got a pot of boiling peanuts on the stove right now, and that got me started thinking about it.

Would you be willing to start a three way feud with das_nut and Grubnutter over the rights to having "nut" in your username?

If these walls could talk, what would they say?

Why was I under the impression that you were a covert operative?

Dolphins or sharks?

Have you ever walked past someone, and subsequently felt compelled to say to yourself, "They'd be a keeper if they just painted each of their nails a different color, and grew a handlebar moustache?"

I've never heard of a dasnut or a grubnut, so there's no need for a debate. I'M the real nut here!

Wait...

My walls could easily write a best selling comedy/drama novel.

Because I apparently forgot to change the batteries in my little brainwashy stick. I'll be over at your house in a few.

Dolphins.

One day, they will mediate negotiations with our new alien overlords.
I also believe that dolphins hold the cure to squirrel AIDS.

No... I'm really not picky with appearances. My thoughts are more along the lines of "They'd be a keeper if they weren't such a douche-bag."

Getting up early.
Long story for such a simple question...
I used to sleep in half the day on my days off from work. Then, last summer, my airline was in bankruptcy, and I found myself working 7 days a week for 12 hours a day for a long while... and the work was really hard. When we finally locked the doors on the hangar, I was unemployed for a month. During that month, my body was ready to get up at 6am every day and work.
I discovered the positives of being up early every day, and going to bed early. Now, I get up at the same time every morning, at 5am (because I work an earlier shift at work), regardless of whether I have to go to work or not and it feels great!

Pink!

Normally, I hate pink... I'm not a pink kind of girl...
But, a pink sky would be awesome!
How could anybody be unhappy with a bright pink sky overhead!!! It would be like "rose tinted glasses" for everyone!!!

Ninjas.
Mostly because I imagine that ninja's would have cleaner manbits and womanbits than a pirate.

But... I'd have to say Robin.
...because seeing Robin on screen with Batman always makes me see gay porn in my head. And that rocks!!!

I always wanted to fly. I had dreams as a child where I was flying around people and places. But, then I grew up, went to work for an airline, and learned that flying would be very cold and uncomfortable.

So, I'd have to say invisibility. I'd abuse the heck out of that superpower!!!!!

Have you ever had a dream that you were eating a giant marshmallow and woke up and discovered your pillow was missing?

Have you ever stood between two parallel mirrors and tried to count how many dimensions of yourself you can see?

How many times have you called your own cell phone because you lost it? (come on, we have all done this).

What's the most intense dream you have ever had?

Star Wars or Star Trek?

Did you know that the density and line output of pencil lead is due to the ratio its clay content? If so, please reference where you got your information and how the topic was brought up. It may be pertinent to national security.

Have you watched The Clockwork Orange?

No...
...but even though I'm not a drooler, one morning I woke up to find I'd drooled all over my pillow. I have no idea that what was about, and I couldn't remember any dream I might have been having. Maybe it was a marshmallow. I don't know. Maybe it has something to do with the third question down:

No. I can't stop poking the mirrors when I'm in that situation. It really looks like I should be ready to teleport somewhere.

A couple... mostly at work using work phones.
I don't have a landline, so I can't call it if I lose it in my house. I have been known to start e-mailing friends asking them to call my phone because I've lost it...again.

Due to the rather extreme sexual nature of my most intense dream ever, I will not be allowed to share it on VB. I will say that it involved a natural retreat, a masseur, and a toilet.


I just can't leave my brain unsupervised for two minutes...

I did not. I Googled it just now, and still did not find that little factoid.

I actually thumbed through the book, but couldn't make any sense of it. Then, I saw the movie and learned the slang, then the book made more sense.

The author actually hates this book. He wishes he'd never wrote it, and he's quoted as saying that he's tired of all these students calling the interview him for their Thesis about that book.

Movies today need more nudity in them... like they had in the 70s.
