I honestly don't remember. It's been at least 2 years since I was in a theater. I hate how people are so rude, so I avoid the theater most of the time now -- I make exceptions on special occasions.

12. What was the worst thing about your first paying job?
No complaints, I was a kid and Pa Raisin was my boss and on the weekends when I worked, for a special treat we'd actually leave the office to get lunch from McDonald's. Hahah! Such a novelty. Chicken nuggets and french fries and a root beer, I lived for that shit. Livin' large.

13. What's the best thing about your current job?
I have to speak in very general terms here and say being an influence to colleagues who dream of someday doing my job, wanting to know what I did to get there and encouraging them and cheering them on.

14. Which long lost friend do you wish would find you on MySpace?
NOBODY. I fucking hate MySpace, even though I'm on it. I have long lost friends that I know would find me through other ways, like through our parents or schools or mutual friends. I kind of wonder from time to time what Audrey is doing, she was a girl in elementary school whose father was a diplomat and they moved all around the world every year.

Inferiority complexes. I can't think of a shared physical trait except...... no tattoos?

9. What is your favourite piece of furniture in your home?
My grandfather's bookcase. Oh, and the bunny has his own little sofa which I adore.

oh oh oh! can I change my answer to #9 ? <said in best faux beatle-esque>

raisin's answer totally jogged my brain & I am much ashamed that I forgot the 'other man in my life.'
Bing Bong.
he is my German antique Grandfather clock.
he is tall & dark & has original brass workings and fragile swing arm & original leaded glass and is absolutely Magnificent in his simplicity. I'm still trying to research his exact origins but have narrowed it down to the Black Forest area and believe him to be one of only a few made by that artisan as he is numbered and signed.
frecklette & mr freckle mock him, but I know they are just jealous of the great bond he & I share.
I was so drawn to him that I dumbfounded the mr by not only producing the money (in cash euro's) for him from a hidden spot, but to then admit I had been saving it to pay for a suprise trip to ireland but this was more important to me.
I don't even like clocks like that as an overall rule, but he & I have a sort of kismet to fulfill I am sure.
