If I could think of a better title, I'd use it.

Have you smelled Gain? Is it just me, or is this the best goddamned laundry detergent in the history of clean drawers? Why am I working on the day M.I.A. is playing for free? Can Miami Ink be any hotter? I know I mentioned it already. I really, really like it, okay? And for the questions, all, uh, sevenish: Keidra, I haven't seen any live shows lately, sadly. I even missed Whitesnake at the Beacon, and it looks like I'll be M.I.A. for M.I.A. How 'bout you? Viv asked: 1. What kind of man do you prefer -- Australian or British? British. Better fashion sense, better accents, better booze. More variety. Scottish, Irish, Welsh, English, and five possible combinations for the other three days of the week! 2. You have to kill one celeb. Which one would it be and why? Before I saw Being Bobby Brown for the first time, I would have said Tom Cruise. Now I'll have to wait for a red carpet situation that would involve the both of them, one very high-powered semi-automatic weapon, and a clean shot. That much crazy cannot be allowed to spread unchecked. 3. Boxers or briefs on a man? Commando! Failing that, boxers. Briefs just look silly. Miss James asked: 1. what's the worst, most god-awful name (for a person) you've ever heard/read? Piggy, Chinese Ta'kwanna or Mykia Lapresha M'Shae. 2. what's the best restaurant you've been to in nyc? Bouley, but I'm hoping to hit Nougatine this week. 3. if you could only have 1 pair of shoes out of your collection, which ones would you pick? Oh god, just take an eye, why don't you? I guess one pair of Speedcats, because they are in theory athletic, dress and casual kicks, all at once. Katie queried: 1. What was your favorite book as a kid and why? I was a big Anne of Green Gables fan. At the time, I think I couldn't have told you why a little cuhluhd girl felt such an affinity for a adolescent red-head in rural Canadia, but in retrospect, I think it had a lot to do with me moving around a lot and living with different relatives, and really, really wanting a solid home and to be loved and needing to prove myself worthy of it. Issues? Me? Nah. 2. What book would you give to your best friend and why? My friends and I swap books or book recommendations, of all kinds, all the time. I can't think of any one right now that could be symbolic of the depth of affection I have for any of them. Besides, usually we swap diet books, cookbooks and porn. I mean romance novels. 3. What book would you give to your worst enemy and why? A Separate Peace. I was forced to read it in high school, and to this day it remains the dullest, most irritating, waste of time book I have ever read. This would, of course, only work if they were forced to read it. Now, if you mean what book would I give that would be symbolic of our mutual enmity? Anything heavy enough to cause damage when hurled. Or some Johanna Lindsey. Miss Mary asked: 1. Will you quit your job in time for us to hang out when I'm in NY? I'll try to figure out a way for us to hang out without that. If I can't, though, you gotta go to the Ruby Foo's on Broadway and 77th! Have a spicy tuna roll and Litchee Mist on me, okay? *sniff* 2. Do you sleep with the TV on or off? If on, what channel is it tuned to? I usually don't watch TV, but since the debut of Miami Ink, I'd say maybe watching it on TLC before bed would lead to good dreams. *cough* 3. If you had to pick just one cheese, which would it be? Humboldt Fog chevre, for now. I love it. That's it. I thought about asking myself questions anonymously, but that would just be sad.

Awwwww. I've been wanting to go to Rub's since the first time you mentioned it. Mmmm... suuuuushi... I'll definitely have to put that on the list. And what is this? A tv show on TLC that I somehow missed? How is that possible? I'll check it out!

I've been to Green Gables but not read the book of it's acclaim. Imagining you there brings a broad smile to me. I'd relish bowling on the green with you there. Trully. I imagine they'd ask us to leave after a few rounds and the associated explatives I am sure would burst from our lips. Have you tried Naples 45 in the Pan Am building? Love their vesuvio pizza from the wood fired oven. Just pop up the stairs on the north side of Grand Central's Concourse and play the right. It's on the north sid eof the lobby. I miss NY... sniff... -Rob

I was a huge "Anne" fan growing up. It's a very romantic book, the whole idea of finding a family that chooses to love you forever, meeting your best friend and the love of your life in childhood. It's still one of my favorite books, even as I've become jaded and bitter in my old age. In 6th grade this girl borrowed that book from me and moved away, never returning it to me, even though she promised to!!! Bitch.

And of course British men are better! Ah the variety! The accents! It's like Baskin Robbins!

No new shows for me. I might see MC Chris this weekend, if I manage to get my lazy ass off the couch.

One note for someone else: GO SEE MC CHRIS! LET ME KNOW HOW HE IS! *ahem* sorry.

Great answers for my questions. I also like your response about the books. Never read Anne of Green Gables and a Seperate Peace is one of those books I remember reading, but not much else.

I love the smell of GAIN but because of my wicked stubborn streak (courtesy of being a Taurus) I can't seem to let go of the childhood household rules of TIDE. I'm going to try for GAIN again. and Bobby Brown is gonna gag when he meets GOD.

I like your answers. I actually didn't read Anne until I was in high school. I totally agree that British guys rock. Better accents, clothes, etc. A Separate Peace is a good choice. I hated that book! Also a good cheese choice. Thanks for answering!
