My friend Christa wrote this excellent book called Fault Line. Go fucking buy it already. Then give it to someone smart and discuss it with them. I’m not being bossy; you’ll want to do so, anyway, after you read it. TRUST ME.

Also, we had a little interview, where I made up some silly-ass questions. ENJOY:

1. List three deal-breakers in terms of style when you look at a dude.

Floppy hippy hats obviously bought/knitted by ex-GFs.

Mustache only.

Anything matchy/matchy with their partners or kids

2. What is your superpower?

What even is that? Like if I could have one or some mad skill I have that others aren’t as good at? If it’s the former, invisibility. If it’s the latter, I can talk myself into or out of pretty much anything.

3. What crimes/mischief did you get away with when you were in high school?

All of it. Possession, underage drinking, public indecency, hitchhiking, curfew violation, sneaking into movies, writing bad poetry, listening to shitty music. Not a lot of attention was paid at home bc I’m smart & can talk myself out of stuff. Kids, don’t follow my example.

4. Do you think Norman Reedus likes me (check one): 

__ yes __ no __ maybe

Is there a black version of Norman Reedus? Bc I would be so on that. I’m pretty sure Reedus is waiting to make his big move with you. For real. And he’s a fool if he misses out. Bc I’m totally girl crushing on you & I don’t even care that you’re not black.

5. Explain your position on a) tattoos b) Miley Cyrus c) organic food

A-C: Stay on your own yoga mat. Who gives a shit?

6. What’s the last book you read that gave you the shivers?

 I don’t get shivers from books. I read too much. But here are my top 5 that enough people aren’t reading:
