Middle Name: Lora
High school graduation year: 1992, yes that’s right bitches, I graduated before civilians had email and before the X-files existed.
Color of your bedroom walls: Pukey green that came with the apartment
Favourite snack: tortilla chips and guacamole and ice cream (not all at the same time obviously)
Dream vacation: A honeymoon anywhere? Just kidding. I would like to spend a summer in a villa in Tuscany—with bohemian artists a plus (see also Stealing Beauty) or on Lake Cuomo—with George Clooney a giant plus.
Most read book: The Outsiders by SE Hinton (yes the one who writes Supernatural Fan Fic). This is not saying much since I only read it twice. Not a re-reader.
Song from your childhood: I don’t understand this question? Just one song? My favorite? Emblematic of my entire childhood? What are you asking? Be more specific!
Five off the top of my head—
Kids in America—Kim Wilde
Bad Girls—Donna Summer
Wishing on a Star—Rose Royce
Candy Girl—New Edition
All Cried Out—Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam
Disney movie: Golden Age:—Sleeping Beauty (that reminds me I still need to see Maleficent); Silver age: The Little Mermaid; Current: duh Frozen. I’m not a monster.
Favorite blog: Remember when Huffpo was a blog? I guess NPR Monkey See?
Desired URL: At one time my friend and I co-owned notyourmamas.com. I guess I should spring for letterfromnowhere.
Theme style: no clue what it’s called, but I edited it.
Worst nightmare: altzheimer’s or breast cancer. It’s like Russian Roulette in my family. In either case dying alone. (🔊insert Debbie Downer sound effect🔊)
Best friend: I have to pick one?
Not tagging anyone because provenance is my only friend on Tumblr. (🔊more Debbie Downer🔊) and because I am too old for this shit.
The Commission believes there is a grave danger that some communities may resort to the indiscriminate and excessive use of force. The harmful effects of overreaction are incalculable. The Commission condemns moves to equip police departments with mass destruction weapons, such as automatic rifles, machine guns and tanks. Weapons which are designed to destroy, not to control, have no place in densely populated urban communities.
