Because S00j and K are not yet out of bed.

Has distance made me less to you?
No. (It probably helps that we didn't see each other often even when we were more local to each other!) I think you rock and you are a total spitfire and if you had moved to Boston? Oh boy would this town be in. for. it!

How do you avoid distraction?
Well, I just... I'm sorry there was something shiny over there. What was the question?

In all seriousness, I'm shit at that. When I do get something hardcore DONE, it's generally because I've managed to laser-focus on it to the utter neglect of everything else ever.

Why a duck?
I don't know; I'm a stranger here myself!

Did you ask s00j about CDs yet? (Yes, a waste of a question, but still. *grin*)
Not yet!

Should I come visit sometime for a weekend?
Hell yeah you should.

If you could spend your life experiencing consciousness in a different, fully able body, (think Avatar, even though it was awful) would you do it?
Instead of my existing life? Or like living it, then returning to my life?

This is a hard question. :) Because it would be awfully nice to not have these major physical issues to work around; at the same time, I have established ways to work around them that feel low-impact to me by now.

And I am a student at The School of Pain, and have learned so much of value there that I hesitate to ask to forget its teachings.

Who's gonna win RuPaul's Drag Race?
I hope not one of the Heathers. They're pissing me off. Especially Raja's cultural appropriation bullshit.

Shangela guest-starred on an episode of Detroit 187 this season, and I haven't seen any of the other girls anywhere else. Which leads me to think there's a high probability of her being the winner.

What do you think of Melanie C?
I can honestly say I have no thoughts about her. Had to Google her!

Do you have a type? Are the girl/guy types radically different?
I don't have a physical type. My nonphysical type: Intelligent, funny, kind, geeky. I prefer people in solid long-term relationships because stability is hot. I like people who challenge me and make me think through my positions. I like people who don't take themselves too seriously. This goes for people of any gender identity.

Would you ever want Shayara to be adapted to TV or a movie?
I think it'd make a kickass cable-series, but it wouldn't be well-suited to a single movie or network TV.

What was your favorite candy as a kid?
This is actually one of the icebreaker questions we use at the interview sessions for prospective volunteers! Super Ropes.

Do you ever wander by the LJ's of folks who have you friended, but who you haven't friended back?
Only rarely, just for time reasons; it can be hard to keep up just on my friendslist!

Do ya miss me?
Hell yes, lady! I actually kinda talk about you not-infrequently, just so's you know. Generally lamenting the fact that alas we cannot date but you are so shiny.

LAst question - Webisodes.

TV appearances don't necessarily imply victory, though it is different in that it's a US drama instead of a reality show or album.
(Jessica Wild, for example, apparently is immensely popular in Puerto Rico. And Sahara Davenport has been in "One Life to Live".)

Oh, true. I'm not assuming she won, just that it doesn't seem *im*probable.

Especially Raja's cultural appropriation bullshit.

Oh, it's nice to hear that from someone else. I've been afraid to mention it in drag_race. God, she even said "How"! I can't believe no one called her on it.

Oh, good maude, yes! This has been driving me up the wall, and I'm tired of getting into it with my housemates who keep making excuses for it.
20th-Mar-2011 02:25 pm (UTC)
How can one even make excuses for it? It is just so blatant and AUGH.

Yeah. I am so not amused.

*sigh* Totally agreed. When attempting to discuss it, though, didn't get much farther than some distracted handwaving and halfassed justifications that pretty much came down to "don't distract us from our amusement". They're pretty great most of the time on most topics, but cultural appropriation has always been something of a sticking point in previous conversations too.

Aaaaaaugh, not Shangela. She was funny as hell in the stand-up challenge, but she's such a hot mess. Girl knows NOTHING about makeup/wigwork/costuming. Also, she's being damn shady, and I want a winner who's as classy as Bebe was.

I know, I know, no one's as classy as Bebe, but c'mon... was it so hard to find a classy queen this year?

I'm still cranky about Tyra winning last year!
21st-Mar-2011 02:20 pm (UTC)
Me too; Tyra DID NOT deserve to win! Hell, I thought she should have been long gone by halfway through the competition. I seriously wonder what the HELL Ru was/is thinking... 'cause the same mistake seems to be about to happen again.
