Q & A's
1. You can press a button that will make any one person explode. Whom would you blow up?
Crazy aunt. God must have been on vacation when she was created.

2. You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist out of existence. Which one will it be?
This question is not really fair. There are lots of bands that put out crappy music. But I think I'd wipe away all those artists that use half-naked women in their soft-porn videos. It's getting old already.

3. Who would you really like to just punch in the face?
Bigots of all shapes and sizes.

4. What is your favorite cheese?
I LOVE any and all kinds of cheese. If I had to choose one, though, it would be Gouda. Extra-aged. Toots took me to a bar once that served a slamming cheese platter...I tried to save some for him, but I'm not very disciplined re: food. What can I say, I'm a glutton.

5. You can only have one kind of sandwich. Every sandwich ingredient known to humankind is at your immediate disposal. What kind will you make?
The chicken sandwich they make at Boca Chica (1st and Houston). Yummylicious.

6. You have the opportunity to sleep with the movie celebrity of your choice. We are talking no-strings-attached sex and it can only happen once. Who is the lucky celebrity of your choice?
Maria Cuccinotta. I mean, if one were to ever dabble in lesbianism you couldn't pick a better woman.

7. You have the opportunity to sleep with the music-celebrity of your choice. Who do you pick?
Alejandro Sanz, but he'd have to serenade me in bed.

8. Now that you've slept with two different people in a row, you seem to be having an excellent day because you just came across a hundred-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Holy crap, a hundred bucks! How are you gonna spend it?
At a spa, enjoying a three-hour full-body massage.

9. You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you gonna go?
Taipei to visit French Kitty. But the minute I get there we're off to Tuscany.

10. Upon arrival to the aforementioned location, you get off the plane and discover another hundred-dollar bill. Now that you are in the new location, what are you gonna do?
Buy drinks at a local bar for the hot Italian men.

11. You discover a beautiful island upon which you may build your own society. You make the rules. What is the first rule you put into place?
There will only be three-day work weeks, with the fourth week of each month off.

12. You have been given the opportunity to create the half-hour TV show of your own design. What is it called and what's the premise?
It would be called "Rebel Grrrrl" and will highlight the lives of women who have stepped out of arbitrary boundaries and pursued unconventional paths in life.

13. What is your favorite curse word?

"F*ck". It is, grammatically, the most versatile word. Use it as a verb, a noun, an it and you can use it.

14. One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren't really doing anything, they're just standing around your bed. What do you do?
Ask them to turn around??

15. Your house is on fire! You have just enough time to run in there and grab ONE inanimate object. Don't worry, your loved ones and pets have already made it out safely. So what's the item?
My laptop. It's got all my pictures and all my songs. One day, when I have some free time, I'm going to scan all my diaries and all the letters or postcards I've ever received.

16. The Angel of Death has descended upon you. Fortunately, the Angel of Death is pretty cool and in a good mood, and it offers you a half-hour to do whatever you want before you bite it. Whatcha gonna do in that half-hour?
Have toe-curling sex one last time.

17. You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what's even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What's it gonna be?
The ability to read minds. No, the ability to stop time. Wait, the ability to have premonitions. Wow...I think I just named three powers that the sisters on "Charmed" possessed...

18. You can re-live any point of time in your life. The time-span can only be a half-hour, though. What half-hour of your past would you like to experience again?
Over five years ago one of my friends from Egypt came to visit. We both love Latin music so I took her to a local club one evening. We were there from 10pm to 4 in the morning. At around 3am, these five guys came in and headed to the bar. As soon as the merengue came on, one pulled me onto the dance floor and we danced and danced and danced. Then, in a move that would have made the Mambo Kings jealous, he twirled me over to his brother who then twirled me to his cousin and we danced like this till the club was ready to shut down. It was exhilarating. Nothing sleazy, nothing perverted. Just pure dancing.

19. You got kicked out of the country for being a time-traveling heathen who sleeps with celebrities and has super-powers. But check out this cool stuff... you can move to anywhere else in the world! Bitchin'! What country are you going to live in now?
Tough question. One of my dreams has always been to move to the Dominican Republic and teach English, but Italy, Spain, and France are high (if not equal) on my list.

20. Hopefully you didn't mention this in the super-powers question.... If you did, then we'll just expand on that. Suddenly, you have gained the ability to FLOAT!!! Whose house are you going to float to first, and be like "Dude, ... I can FLOAT!"?

21. The constant absorption of magical moonbeams mixed with the radioactive vegetables you consumed earlier has given you the ability to resurrect the dead famous-person of your choice. So which celebrity will you bring back to life?

Dalida. I hate that she died depressed.

22. The Gates of Hell have opened, and Death appears. As it turns out, Death is actually a pretty cool entity, and happens to be in a fantastic mood. Death offers to return the friend/family-member/person, etc. of your choice to the living world. Who will you bring back?
My grandfather; he was the greatest man to have ever walked on this Earth. They don't make men like him anymore.

23. What's your theme song?
"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"
. When you really think about it, that's all they really want.

Who: Carmen

xx-something egyptia-yorker who's spent over half her life stuck in two worlds not of her own making. unable and unwilling to fully embrace one identity over the other, she created (is trying to create) her own place in the world where people love each other unconditionally, irrespective of artificial boundaries, and where dancing merengue is as necessary to life as breathing air.
