Featured reader of the week:
Mavi, from South Pasadena, CA
1.) When and where have you met a celebrity?
This is weird: A few years ago my dad was in ICU after brain surgery. It was sad, and scary and all of that, but like all ICU’s, you get bored after a while. So while sitting by my dad and running out of ways to tell him how much I loved him and wanted him to get better, I saw someone I recognized in the next room: David Hasselhoff!
I pretended not to recognize him because if I was sad, he must have been, too. ICU’s suck. Turns out his mom was there. Anyway, the weird thing was that he was really super effing nice and pleasant to everyone around him. The nurses would ask for autograph’s and other people visiting their sick relatives came up to him, even of my sisters, and he was always nice and he looked kinda hot.
I’ve seen Tom Cruise many times, not only is he not that nice, he’s not that hot.
Does this story make me less gay? Sorry.
2.) What lesbian/bi pop culture character are you most like, and why?
She hasn’t been born, written, or animated yet. But she’ll be pretty cool once we get the show launched!
3.) What cd is in heavy rotation for you right now?
I’m overplaying my protest songs these days. I’ve always wanted to experience the hope, turmoil and excitement that had to be the ’60s and Prop. 8 totally launched that for me, thanks California. Get up, stand up. Stand up for your rights!
4.) If we hacked into your DVR, what would we find?
The Rachel Maddow Show, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. I like my current events leaning left and with a dash of humor.
The Rachel Maddow Show
5.) What song are you currently singing in the shower?
"I like big butts and I cannot lie!"
