1. What’s one element of your daily routine?
Cobalt - literally an "element" I take everyday via B12. Also my favourite blue.
2. What’s the first CD you bought for yourself? (music?)
Nelly - Country Grammar (Hot Shit).
3. Who’s your hometown hero?
An old lady that has a stall at this weird department store in town selling only second-hand Piggin’ ornaments. She sits in the corner surrounded by them and has been there ever since I can remember. I’m convinced she’s on a commode and has never left the chair.
4. Who was your high school celeb crush/hero?
Crush - Johnny Depp as Edward Scissorhands. Hero - Andy Warhol.
5. Favourite childhood fad/trend?
Slick fringes and sovereign rings.
6. What was your favourite pre-social-media activity?
Shooting spud guns on the caravan park as a kid (mainly at the neighbouring caravans).
7. Most cherished trinket that you have kept over the years?
A toilet ashtray that my parents used to get out every time we had a smoker visit. I’ve since collected toilets in various forms, including a Hot Wheels car, but the ashtray is my favourite.
8. Which late musician do you wish you could’ve seen live?
9. Funniest rumour said about you?
At school my “humanities” teacher spread a rumour that I skipped her class to take drugs in the toilets. Very ‘Mean Girls’… in reverse.
10. What is one little known fact about you?
I’m addicted to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
11. Cartoon that you grew up with?
My all-time fav (that no one seems to remember) was “Help!... It's the Hair Bear Bunch!”. It originally aired in the 70s, but re-ran in the 90s. It was short-lived with only 1 series, but it was cute. It followed three bears that lived in a zoo that would escape every night to then return before caught. They were dressed in counterculture fashions and rode invisible motorcycles.
12. What movie/song can you recite word for word?
Rapture by Blondie. Don’t think I can nail a movie word for word. I hate watching the same thing twice.
13. Best advice you’ve ever been given?
“If you want to know what people are thinking, listen to what they say”. This seems simple to digest at first, but if you mull over it a couple times, you get to the deep-rooted meaning that suggests we might be better at telling the truth when we lie.
