M/M Writer Ally Blue Gets Colorful with 10 Silly Questions
I recently tracked Ally Blue down at a hash bar in Amsterdam. We shared a bowl and walked along the canals, then took in a tastefully-done sex show, which will allow us to deduct the entire trip on our income tax as "research."
Ally's answers may surprise you. Or they may not. Do you know Ally?
1. If you could invite any famous person, dead or alive, for dinner, what would you eat?
Spinach burritos! I luuuuurve spinach burritos. But, alas, I cannot cook them worth a crap, so we would have to go out to a Mexican place to eat. And if we're going out, we're going someplace that makes awesome Margaritas *g* Yay for getting celebrities drunk!
2. Who do you think you are?
Well, Facebook thinks I'm either Laverne (from Laverne & Shirley), a Berserker Zombie or a cheeseburger. So it's no wonder I'm confused :-/ [RR: I've heard you taste like a cheeseburger.]
3. What’s your problem?
Life, and its stubborn refusal to allow me to become rich and famous from my Art, that I might cast aside the EDJ (Evil Day Job) and banish it forever from my sight.
Life. Don't talk to me about life.
[RR: If you're like me, you have no idea what that means, or who Marvin is]
4. If you could have one wish, would you give it to me?
Of course! As long as I could think of a way that giving it to you would mean ten more wishes for me :D Or for a hundred million dollars, whatever.
5. Where you at?
BEHIND YOU, AAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!!
Haha, not really. Did you look???
[RR: No, I didn't. And if you were behind me, I would think you'd have the courtesy to give me a reacha-around]
6. If you had to choose only one vice, what would it be?
Sloth. Because I am tired. No, wait, that's a SIN, not a vice. Dang!
Errrrrrr. Does lying in bed all day watching No Reservations and Ghost Hunters count?
[RR: Yes, because reality TV is a vice. I know.]
7. What’s your favorite brand of cereal?
The kind that is sausage biscuits.
8. When you wake up in the morning, what celebrity do you most resemble?
The Crypt Keeper.
Seriously. Ally pre-coffee is NOT a good thing O_O
9. Do you know your ass from a hole in the ground? And if so, how do you tell the difference?
I do know! And I can tell because I am SMRT [sic] and I know my ass is that thing in the front yard with the dirt and rocks in it :D
10. Do you have anything you’d like to plug?
Yes! That fucking hole in the ground! Heh *g*
