JANUARY, PART 2
1.Can you eat with chopsticks? Nope. I am seriously uncoordinated.
2.Could you tell real money from counterfeit? Well, I understand a $5 is supposed to feature Honest Abe and NOT be pink, so I know these are fake. Other than that, not really.
3.What do you think about school uniforms? I've evolved on this. When I went to public high school, the "uniform" my friends and I adopted for ourselves was very egalitarian: jeans and t-shirts. Subsequently things have gotten much dressier, with a greater emphasis on accessories. While I'm all for self expression, I worry about the kids who can't afford the accoutrements. So now I like uniforms because they're an equalizer.
4.What ancient civilization would you most like to visit? Ancient? None, thank you. However I am very curious about 19th century America. I'd like to visit Springfield, IL, ca 1860. I've toured the Lincoln sites so many times and find them captivating. A very romantic time. No slaves, of course. And maybe I'd run into Mary and her boys on Adams Street as they stop by to visit Mr. Lincoln at work. There's a Subway near there now, and I remember daydreaming about seeing them as I ate my sandwich.
5.What would make a great new Crayola color? Pantone 294, Cubbie blue! I believe the Dodger blue is similar (if not identical), so this addition would be helpful to many artistic young fans.
an art project is created with the intent of getting rich and famous,
does that cast doubt over its significance as a work of art? No. Art is about what we get from it.
7.What do you get in trouble for the most? Ha! My big mouth.
8. Do you blow your nose in public? Of course. I don't make a performance of it, but I don't think sitting there with snot on my face is elegant or hygienic, either.
9.If all the nations in the world are in debt, where did all the money go? Jeff Bezos and Amazon. Maybe Walmart. An oil company?
10.Is it as easy to make you happy now as it was when you were a child? Yes.
11.Who knows more...you, or your parents? My parents are both dead, so I win!
12.What instrument would you like to be famous for playing? Guitar! However, see #1. I'm really bad with the manual dexterity thing.
13.Would you have sex with a stranger for one million dollars? Call me, Bob.
14.Are you completely in control of your body? No. Our bodies call the shots. I think as women, we feel that more keenly than men.
15.What is the coolest web site you know of? I don't know how cool they are, but I spend a lot of time on Goodreads and Letterboxd.
