PICK ONE OF YOUR SCARS OUT, NOW HOW DID YOU GET IT?
I have a slight horizontal scar across my forehead, which I got when I was literally clotheslined by a rusty metal wire while running after my brother and being chased by a screaming old lady who was angry that we had cut through her back yard. The wire clipped me midline on my forehead and I was thrown back like a slingshot, falling flat on my ass. Then I finished running home and told my mom. I still have a teeny tiny piece of metal in the scar (it looks like a very small mole).
WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?
The living room has a Dali print (Metamorphosis Of Narcissus), a framed triptych of archways in Italy, and a a signed, framed b/w print of a photo of a highway taken by Noah Grey, that Rappy gave me for Christmas a few years ago.
WOULD YOU RATHER PLAY FOOTBALL OR WATCH IT?
WHAT SPORT WOULD YOU SAY YOU ARE BEST AT?
Australian Rules Smirking
WHAT IS/WAS YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE?
Anything involving alligators being in close proximity to my person. Kind of like this.
HAVE YOU EVER WRITTEN POETRY?
Yes, mostly in high school for the literary magazine, but also in my early 20s. The two poems in that entry are probably two of the best things I've ever written, and one of the poems has, IMO, the best line I've ever put on paper.
DO YOU REMEMBER BIRTHDAYS?
Of family and close friends, yes.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME YOU WERE BORN?
DO YOU HAVE A BIRTHMARK, WHERE?
No birthmark, but lots of small moles. Also lots of scars at this point.
WHAT IS THE WEIRDEST THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
I'm not sure I can pick just one thing. In middle school my friend Jenna and I used to have shaving cream and ketchup fights. That was kind of strange. Linda, Kathy and I also used to walk around the neighborhood with a boombox loudly singing Adam and the Ants songs. The COOLEST weird thing I ever did was when I went to Michigan, I was exploring a neighborhood and decided to climb up this steep embankment to see what was on the other side. This was on the other side, and it took my breath away.
