Welcome to my new weekly distraction to help you get to your weekend faster. I hope you’ll leave a comment with your answers to these some or all of these random questions.
Wow, you’re very interesting, internet.
1. Bath or shower, and why?
Well, I do like a good bath. Particularly at my mother in law’s house. She has this humongous round bathtub that is quite luxurious. I mostly take showers though. They are terribly efficient, and alas, efficiency trumps comfort most of the time. But if I had a good bathtub, I might never get out of it.
2. Are you particular about your writing utensil? What do you use?
I am weird about writing utensils. I’m sure that must be shocking to you, internet. When I’m directing, I ONLY use disposable mechanical pencils with plenty of eraser and if I don’t have one, I feel a little bit lost. I usually carry about 20 of them with me to rehearsal. Not an exaggeration. I have two types of pens that I like, and neither is ballpoint, yo. Screw ballpoint pens! But I often use ballpoint pens, because I lose pens like I lose my mind — which is to say, often.
3. Best hat you’ve ever owned.
My favorite hat was one I got on a trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is hideous. It is sort of a velvet material. It’s black, white and red and it has ear flaps. It kind of makes my head look like a giant target with ear flaps. Tres chic. I have never received a compliment on it. I adore it.
4. Stupidest thing you’ve ever spent excessive money on.
Maybe that hat? Or makeup? Makeup is expensive and I wear it so rarely. Poor Craig.
5. What’s the first part of a person’s appearance that you notice?
I notice hair right away. I like hair. I also like lack of hair. Nothing sexier than a balding man who doesn’t care. Nothing. I also notice people’s hands right away. I like expressive hands that look a little beat up. Someone who works with their hands, maybe some dirt under their nails or some callouses, but I sure hope they’re moving around when you’re talking. Otherwise, you are not using the very best tool that you’ve got.
Happy weekend, you little lambchops with your gorgeous hair and your expressive dirty hands.
