If you won a gigantic lottery jackpot (as in > $250 million), what is literally the first thing you would buy? The first thing? Probably a nice dinner for the family
What is the first big purchase you would make? To quote Keller Williams I need a big ass bus with a satellite dish A double-decker double-wide what I wish My double-decker double-wide, oh yeah It's gonna have two icemakers In both refrigerators A silent but violent generator To run the subwoofers and the disco ball The escalator up to the dance hall On the second floor with a giant sky light Driving range and jacuzzi just right For skinny dipping right after the show At 80 miles an hour It's worth all the dough
How many inforoosters have you met? Well I've met everybody at brunch even if I don't necessarily remember them. I'm old friends with Robinbobin and Mike Skipper
If you could only eat one kind of cheese for the rest of your life (with the rest of your food being normal, not like all you can eat for the rest of your life is one kind of cheese), what kind would you pick? Mozzarella, very versatile
Do you have a favorite photograph, and if so, what is it? I do, it's a picture of my kids and it's just one of those perfect shots.
cake or pie? pie, cherry please although that brownie pie looked really good
milk or dark chocolate? milk
sweet or salty? a bit of both, chocolate covered pretzels, chicago style popcorn
markers or crayons? crayons
pens or pencils? pencils
paper or plastic? reusable cloth when I remember, if not plastic
Random: Top 3 favorite scents? vanilla, peppermint, lemon Top 3 favorite TV shows? Law and Order, Downton Abbey, The Amazing Race Top 3 animals? Penguins, otters, pandas Least favorite household chore? the laundry it just never fucking ends
Do you feel cheated that you're BMOTM during the shortest month of the year? (Don't worry, I feel your pain... I was a February BMOTM myself.) I don't feel cheated. Actually I'm still stunned I was selected to be BMOTM at all.
What do you like about North Carolina? I'm not really sure some times. I'm not in the area of NC that we wanted to be in long term but life happens and here we are. We're close to the beach which is cool most of the time (not hurricane season). My kids are happy here, the weather is nice. What do you not like about North Carolina? The politics are atrocious! Right now the economy is pretty shitty as well.
What was the first album you purchased? Queen News of the World was the first album I ever bought with my own money. Care to tell us more about this high school radio show? I went to a huge high school in Long Island that has an FM radio station (91.9 FM). It's at 6,000 watts now but I'm sure it wasn't that high back when I was in school. Anyway, you could sign up and have time on the air as the DJ. I only did it after school for a semester. You were responsible for working your own board and it was a cart based system so we had limited playlist options but I closed every show by playing Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Who is your favorite comedian? Dead - George Carlin Living - Lewis Black
Who is your hero? Buddha and Ghandi
If I knocked on your door at this moment wanting an alcoholic beverage, what would be my options? We've got you covered! Beer, wine, your standard liquor selection as well as some things like left over air plan vodka bottles from last years Roo.

Mayooooooooooooooo!!! <3 Since you have a short month I'm going to start with a handful!
Aside from pandas and cats (Randy), what is your 3rd favorite animal? If cats includes all felines (including the BIG cats), then I'd have to say... hmmm... that's hard. I really love all mammals. I enjoy penguins. I like animals that are mega-cute. I just saw a video of a grown dog teaching a baby puppy dog how to get down some stairs, and it made me happy.
Favorite insect? I do not like insects. Not even butterflies. Once you get past the pretty wings, they're just worms.
Least favorite insect? All insects. But particularly insects with exoskeletons AND wings. i.e. roaches. OH, and TICKS. OY.
Guilty pleasure TV show? There's SO MANY to choose from!!! I love TV. It's generally always on, even if I'm not "watching." At the moment, Pretty Little Liars. And how about reality tv - I love Big Brother, Survivor, and Top Chef. .....that list can go on and on.
Favorite movie? Again, there's a lot. But Reality Bites for realz. And the Neverending Story. I can watch those on repeat.
Favorite book of all time? A wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'engle, and also The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King. Both books I have rebought a couple times because I wear out the paperbacks.
Favorite band/musician of all time? ohhhhhhhhhh. Big GUNS question, CKS! of ALL TIME... Well. Hmm... this is hard too. I can't say there is just one. I have been greatly affected by several bands in my lifetime, and all at different points in my life. Right now, Arcade Fire and Radiohead are pretty much in my earphones at least once a week each for the past couple years. There was a time when I saw Better Than Ezra like 10 times in a year. They were my first non-parents, non-chapparoned concert, when I was 16.
To date, what is the craft creation you are most proud of? Also hard for me. I have done SO MANY CRAFTS in my years. I guess collectively, the PANDA HOODS have been the most gratifying. It was so fun to see them on so many people at one time, and see so many SMILING because of them. They may be the first crafts that I literally saw JOY on the faces of the receipients.
First concert? HOOTIE AND THE BLOWFISH 1994-ish. I was 14, get off me haters.
Last concert? PASSION PIT, MATT&KIM, ICONA POP AT MSG!!!!!!!!! It was so amazing. What I loved was how GRATEFUL and just humbled the bands were. I mean, Matt & Kim grew up in Brooklyn, and this was their first show ever at Madison Square Garden. They just couldnt say Thank You enough, and they were on FIRE.
Best concert? Arcade Fire, Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, August 10, 2010. I'll never forget it. It was HOT. August in Georgia. We were drenched in sweat and we hadn't even started. Spoon opened. There was only one person in front of me, and we were center. there's something special about being that close to the people creating the sound. Of course Win leaned out over us and I touched him and he sweat on me. But the ENTIRE CROWD around us was 100% into it. There wasn't one person who was just standing there chillin, not one person on their phone, not one person NOT having the BEST time. We danced together, we jumped in sync, we ALL sang at the top of our lungs. WE FOUND THE LIGHT
Worst concert? ugh. I saw BATHS open for Phantogram or Com Truise or something, and he was horrid. ...I guess there have been worse shows, but that comes to mind right away.
Bucket List concert? HMMMM, well since I've been to MSG now, I suppose I'd like to see Arcade Fire or Radiohead or some other such epic artist play somewhere equally epic. i.e. AF played Edinburgh Castle once. I could get down with that.
Favorite Roo? Oh wow. I will answer as favorite Roo in GENERAL. Bc when it comes to different aspects it can range. But I'd say 2010. I was having a preeeeeeeeeetty shiiiiiiitty summer. But 2010 was the year I took my brother with me for his first Roo, and the year that I really met a ton of Roosters. That year was different than years prior ('07, '08, '09) because I realized after the first couple days that the music may have brought me there, but that wasnt what MADE it for me. It was the friendships and all these people coming together to enjoy each other and create this new city for 4 days! Not to sound all hippy-dippy-peace-love-etc. but that's what Roo is for me now. It's my escape and a refuge. <3
Favorite Non-Roo Festival? Music Midtown pre-2005. That was really my intro to music fests. And I loved the diversity of the stages, and that it was a city fest, and just how much there was to DO. When it ended after the '05 fest, I was mega sad. When it came back, I was really excited - because I hope it gets back to what it was!
Which character from The Breakfast Club was your favorite?
Which John Hughes character did you most identify with in high school?
What is your favorite John Hughes Movie? - there are SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM SIGGY (I'm going with JH the writer, not just JH the director). Hmmm... I know every word and every action in Mr. Mom. I can say the same for Weird Science. I'll go with those.
Which character from The Breakfast Club was your favorite? Definitely Brian. Anthony Michael Hall's comedic timing is spot on. Also, he was the only one who's "problem" I related to, and didn't find irritating, selfish, or bothersome. (Also, I've been in love with Farmer Ted from 16 Candles forever. I even had a shirt in hs that looked like one he wears in the film, and I called it my Farmer Ted shirt.)
Which John Hughes character did you most identify with in high school? In high school, Molly's character in 16 Candles. OH SAM, YOU GOT YOUR BOOBIES. I had friends, and wasn't a wallflower or anything, but I just felt invisible to the people who were "important" in hs, and meanwhile had to deal with weird extended family etc. So I'll go with Samantha.
I love this question. I'd be interested in hearing your most disappointing concert (if that's different from the worst).
I would consider most disappointing definitely different than worst.
I've gone through a period in my life where I've been working on letting go of crap memories. i.e. why keep them and let them clog up the brain files if they're not worth anything? So I'm thinking hard about this. I saw Rogue Wave in 2010, and that wasn't necessarily great. WAIT! I got it. Built to Spill, 2008. MAN. It was a political rally. I was over it by the 2nd song. So I just drank my beer and tried to be interested.
Favorite condiment? Favorite medical clinic? Favorite Dallas Mavericks player? Favorite Irish county? Favorite Mexican month? Favorite New England Patriots player?
Favorite condiment? -Well, it's not mayo. It's horseradish. But Mayo is #2.
Favorite medical clinic? -I can tell you one thing, it's not CVS's minute clinic. It did NOT take me a minute when I went there a few weeks ago for my RAGING FLU, and I JUST got a bill from LabCorp for $21 for the strep test the nurse practitioner sent off. That was negative. Because i had the FLU. Idiots. I guess I'd have to go with the Mayo Clinic. You know. It's famous.
Favorite Dallas Mavericks player? - I dont care about the Dallas Mavericks. But I looked up the roster for fun. And while I'd love to say Dirk Nowitzski bc he has a "ski" name, I'll go with OJ. Mayo.
Favorite Irish county? - Mayo? No. Dublin. Because that is where Guinness was born. However, my dad seems to think that his sisters traced us back to some clan in Ireland, and I suspect it may have been in the Mayo region.
Favorite Mexican month? - MAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! No, actually, it's Junio. Because that's when Bonnaroo is.
Favorite New England Patriots player? - None. Not even the Mayo. ATL FALCONS RISE UP
