Thanks, idratherbelazy for the mention (I had to look up how to mention you… shows how good at the internets I am). I have a few minutes, so I’ll answer your questions!
1. Coolest place you ever been
I would have to say Fushimi Inari, it’s a shrine in Japan that is made up of thousands of tōri (gates). You walk through them as you hike up a mountain.
2. Favorite cartoon growing up
Sailor Moon, which is slowly creeping back into my life because of the reboot on Hulu. It’s unbelievable to me how progressive the creator was in the 90s regarding gender identity and sexuality, all wrapped into a cartoon.
3. Favorite Harry Potter book. If you haven’t read it, why not?
I would have to say Deathly Hallows only because it was the one I read in real time with everyone else. I read all the other 6 maybe 2 weeks before the Deathly Hallows came out. I haven’t read any other book again except that one before going to see the movies.
4. Would you rather be chased by Michael Meyers or Jason? Why?
I really don’t know. Probably Jason. Michael seems more agile than Jason… and I don’t camp very often, so there is little chance of running into Jason.
5. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I’d like to be able to freeze time or blow shit up Piper Halliwell style
6. Cheeseburger or hot dog?
Cheeseburger, no question. Although I saw on BuzzFeed a cheeseburger corndog and I would be all over that.
7. Are you happy with your career/job?
Actually, I can’t complain. I love my coworkers and I am totally invested in the clients I work with. I could use more $$ and less evenings, but I didn’t become a therapist expecting to work 9-5 and make millions.
8. Favorite workout song on your playlist right now
Sissy That Walk - RuPaul
9. Dream vacation
I’d really love to go back to Mexico or some other all you can eat/drink resort in Latin America.
10. Favorite holiday. Why?
I would have to say Halloween only because of the fall and the candy… I need to really put some thought into my costume this year.
So there is this glorious website called What Would I Say? that I have been playing around with all night. Some of the creations are eerily poetic… These are some of my favorites that spoke to me.
思い出のマーニー / When Marnie Was There
This movie. Wow.
This right here is one of the things I love about Japanese animation. This movie is obviously about two female main characters who have a relationship. The part that is left unsaid is the label for the relationship. Are they lovers? friends? something in between? The beauty of not having a label or an explanation allows us all to be able to see what really needs to be seen: the connection between two people.
And I think that scares people. Being able to say, “oh they’re lesbians” or “they’re gay” or whatever, allows people to block themselves from not being totally ‘in it.’ It allows for excuses like, “this doesn’t fit for me” or “I’m not like them,” but really we are like them. We are yearning for human connection in a way that this film depicts, and it reaches out to our deepest vulnerabilities as living beings.
And that is a beautiful thing.
