Saturday Morning Questions - 9/13/14
As I mentioned a little over a week ago, I’ll only be answering questions publicly on Saturday mornings from now on. Well, Saturday “mornings.” Depends on when I wake up.
I just don’t like cluttering up my front page (or for my Tumblr followers, their dashboards) with lots of sarcastic deflections of personal questions using animated gifs.
So from now on, I’ll answer all the questions I receive throughout the week, lumped into one post (like this one). Because answering these things tends to inspire people to send more, I’ll also answer a couple throughout the day if I’m around and free to!
Anyway, you can still see all my asks and answers here on this specially curated page or, if you hate these posts, you can look at nothing but my original posts, here.
Thanks to everyone who sends these in. They’re always interesting and fun to answer!
Here we go…
I follow people for lots of reasons! I don’t know who you are, so it’s difficult (impossible) to give specific reasons, but I probably visited your blog, liked what I saw, and decided I wanted to see what you post more often… such as when I’m waiting in line at Dunkin Donuts in Santa Monica.
I am attracted to women that I am attracted to. I don’t think about it a lot more than that and I really don’t think I have a “type,” which is what you seem to be talking about.
Okay, so yeah, obviously, there are physical traits and personality traits I tend to be attracted to and sometimes they correlate. I am usually attracted to intelligent, creative people. I also find I am usually attracted to people who question or challenge gender norms.
Does that mean I’m only attracted to women with a short hair, thick-rimmed glasses, and a serious fantasy media addiction? No. Do I often find women like that attractive? Yes. But I also find a great many other women attractive. Women with long hair, no glasses, and an uncommon interest in baking, for example… ;)
I’m also often attracted to women who are trained in some kind of martial arts and could legitimately rip my ear off and make me eat it. I’ve never gone looking for that in a lady, but for some reason I keep finding out they could do that to me after I realize I’m into them. Weird, huh?
So you’re only interested in meeting me if I’m single? Well, I’m sorry but I started dating someone very recently. I hope you have a great trip to LA!
Who is this?
Did you go to Mt. Hope High School in Bristol, Rhode Island, too? Because I don’t know anyone who’s seen that movie outside of Mr. Crowley’s French class!
It’s one of my favorite movies too. (For those of you who haven’t seen it, the English title is The Dinner Game) I have it on DVD and I show it to everyone I can. It’s probably been about eleven years since I first saw it, but it’s still one of my favorites, too! That’s so cool!
I actually just started dating someone pretty recently.
Questions and Answers - Tuesday, September 02, 2014
From now on, I think I’m going to answer all questions publicly only once per week to keep my blog (and twitter) from flooding with answers like it has the last few days. Maybe Saturday mornings?
Anyway, for now…
I don’t usually remember my dreams. One time, when I was really young, I had one where my family told me we were going to Disney World and I woke up and started packing and then I started crying.
If I say “no,” will you stop liking me? If I say “yes,” will you move to LA and play with my hair all day and also feed me pizza? Anyway, see below…
Well, I wouldn’t call it a fiasco, but that series notwithstanding, I prefer to keep the details of my dating life fairly private. That said, I suppose my dating life is going as well as any twenty-something in a LA could hope.
Q:If we were dating, I would bring you pizza every day
Q:Touch my butt
Okay. How old are you? Maybe. I don’t know. Who is this? Tina?
Q:do you play video games? if so, what's the one you've played most recently and also if you could only play one game for the rest of your life which one would it be?
I just finished my first play through of Diablo III and Reaper of Souls.
If I could only play one game for the rest of my life… That is so hard to answer. Definitely a game I can play with friends if I want. I guess it would be something that keeps getting new patches and expansions, not unlike Diablo III? Do I have to name something specific? D:
Q:What was the best pizza you've ever eaten?
One time, I made a macaroni and cheese pizza at my friend’s house and I didn’t get to eat it because of reasons and the next morning, there were leftovers of it in my fridge.
So that one.
Q:Lolling over you being called pretentious when you are the exact opposite. Anon is jealous and who can blame him
Q:Could you date someone who despised pizza?
More pizza for me.
I’m getting a lot of anonymous questions today and I can’t keep up, so my friend Michael Varrati is going to step in and answer a bunch for me because people collaborate on the webosphere and that’s usually a good idea, right?
From now until 7PM, Michael will be the one responding so any questions I receive. He’ll tag his answers. I may chime in anyway. We’ll see.
