Ten out of Ten!!!!

Ten out of Ten's picture

Ten out of Ten - the queerest interview of them all!
They say one in ten of the general population is queer. So we're in the minority. Now - if my math is correct - ten out of ten Oasis users are queer. So we're in the majority! To celebrate, I've decided to start a useless interview section where I print a list of questions and you all take turns answering them. I'm not going to be elitist and choose one person a week - I hate things like that. So instead, please paste the questions into a comment and post those darn commens below!(If you've already done one on the last site, I've still got it!) Then we'll have a little archive of daft information! I've tried not to duplicate any of the sort of information we might put in our bios.

Here's the format you need to use - and please include questions and answers.

Name (on Oasis):
One useless thing you keep in your wallet 'just because':
Two things you've ever had a collection of:
Three holidays you enjoy:
Four smells that make you happy:

Six famous people you admire FOR their sex appeal:
Seven words that describe you as a kid:
Eight words that describe you now:
Nine presents you wish you'd got as a kid:
Ten foods you really like:

Now get answering!

One useless thing you keep in your wallet 'just because': that stupid buy ten bras get one free card which at this rate, I will never fill up, - it

jules's picture

kind of jumping the bandwagon

Okay, I can't do this quantity thing because I'm a qualitative girl.

Name (on Oasis): jules, of slowambition where estrogen seeped. consider the new site name told, verb tense aside.

Useless thing(s) you keep in your wallet 'just because': I have many useless things with respect to my wallet, not the least of which is the wallet itself. A simplified list...an admit one ticket stub, her mailing address, my university of toronto student card, depleted phone cards, and receipts to remind me just how much money I spent on books this year for classes I didn't end up taking.

Things you've ever had a collection of: Um, I was an entymology student, so bugs. Basically. Among other pickled things.

Holidays you enjoy: I like Tuesdays, and any day that gives me an excuse for my fishing rod and my tent.

Smells that make you happy: his smell - old spice and cigarettes in a bathroom, patchouli, campfire, chili, the skin of every woman I've ever loved

Famous people you admire: Michelle Tea, Zygmunt Bauman, Ani Difranco, Green of Green's theorem, and a bunch of other thinkers that nobody but other theory whores cares about.

Famous people you think are hot: Clea. Guilty.

Words that describe you as a kid: accident prone, trouble prone, curiosity prone, told to stop talking so much prone.

Words that describe you now: they tell me I'm an introverted extrovert. Which means that I go to functions and parties and other social things but need to leave once in awhile to take ten minutes alone. I think this is why I started smoking. It's the perfect excuse to stand in a parking lot by myself and sit in my own head before I have to go back and be someone.

Presents you wish you'd got as a kid: I just wanted one dog or one cat or one hamster that stopped going to "Old MacDonald's Farm." My parents, like, completely ruined that song for me.

Foods you really like: Hummus. A good bloody filet mignon. Gnocchi. Eggplant parmesian made the way we've always made it, for years, even at the restaurant nobody ever knows is in The Family. I mean that in its literal Italian immigrant ghetto slang connotation. I should probably stop now. And ketchup chips.
