Featured reader of the week:
Carolyn, from Illinois, USA
1.) When and where have you met a celebrity?
I went to a charity cookoff between Carla and Stefan from this season of Top Chef. I got two pictures with Carla, and I actually had a conversation with Stefan about how good some breadsticks were without realizing it was him.

And I talked to Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy at her concert once. I kind of (OK, totally) spazzed out when I met her, but she wrote me a really nice autograph, so my dignity’s still somewhat intact.
2.) What cd is in heavy rotation for you right now?
I’m really big on listening to stuff on shuffle, but lately I’ve been really obsessed with Duffy, Annie Lennox and Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head. And Mozart‘s Requiem. I guess I have an eclectic taste in music.
3) If we hacked into your DVR, what would we find?
I wish I had a DVR, but I have the first eight seasons of Law & Order: SVU on my computer, so I guess that answers your question.

4.) What song are you currently singing in the shower?
I don’t sing in the shower at college, but when I’m at home I have to sing in the shower. I actually made two "Shower Song" mixes and a couple CDs where all the songs have key changes in them. I mean, let’s face it – key changes make songs bitchin’.
5.) When did you start reading AE, or what’s your favorite AE feature?
I think I started creepin’ on AE a few weeks before I actually created an account, and it was totally due to Liz Feldman. And the TwitterWatch made me actually sign up for
Twitter (http://twitter.com/whyyesitscar, if I may hype myself up).
And even though the show tanked a while ago, I was in love with The L Word recaps. It’s like that kid in school who no one talked to because he fed his boogers to the birds, but everyone was sad to see him move because they had to find someone else to make fun of.
Thanks for sharing, Carolyn!
