1) Do you see the world with what eyes? With banality, the way as it is, or with some magic on it, looking wonder beyond the veil?
I see the world like a squeamish scientist. OH GOD WE’RE ALL MADE OUT OF MEAT AND WHEN WE TALK WE’RE MAKING NOISE BY SQUIRTING AIR OUT OF OUR MEAT.
2) How many languages you know (spoken and written)?
I’m only really fluent in English. I grew up in a town with a large population of balanced Spanish/English bilingual people so I don’t not know Spanish but all the grammar isn’t really there for me.
I studied Japanese in college but my abilities have slowly declined, especially as far as writing and speaking go. I get semi-regular reading and listening practice through different kinds of media so those skills aren’t great but they’re in slightly better condition.
3) Any possession that is your totem/dearest/memento/horcrux?
Lately it’s been the old publications I’ve been collecting for Gay News Ephemera.
Especially with the stuff from the 50s, I’m amazed this stuff made it to 2014 in such good shape and it would be a shame if it ended its journey with me. I’m already thinking of where I’d like these items to go eventually. I want to find a place that would both give a fuck about them and put them in reach of nonacademic researchers/history buffs/hobbyists like me. That means low or no fees for scans and shit like that.
4) Favourite God of any mythology and WHY!
I was raised an atheist so I don’t really have much personal attachment to any particular god. Flamboyantly gay Marian worship owns though
5) Your favourite Flower, and Why!
I miss the mandevilla vines that took over the front of the house for a few years in my teens. Yellow trumpet flowers, big glossy green leaves. They partially covered my window and filtered the harsh South Texas sun down to a nice pale green.
I also like anything that attracts hummingbirds.
6) Where do you want to travel if you had the chance to?
I’d really like to go back to Manchester. That was a really cool city, even if I didn’t vibe so much with the gay men? Like the bouncers at a lot of places didn’t read me as gay, (“You know this is a gay bar, right?”) when I was completely unambiguous in Portland. London was cute too but northern English accents, man.
If Scotland goes for independence later this year, it would be cool to go see the start of that. I’d also really like to visit Barcelona. Catalan is kind of a trip to listen to as someone who grew up with the sound of Mexican Spanish. Lisbon would be cute too, especially since I saw a thing saying that hotel prices there are way cheaper than average for western Europe.
Going to Japan would be great as well. Tokyo would obv be the main destination, but Kyoto and Osaka would be nice too.
7) What’s your favourite food?
I really like most variations on curry, but it’s not so readily available in Laredo so I gorged myself when I visited England in 2011. After hours street vendors had like curry fries and stuff, which is great, but it tended to be really mild/bland compared to the stuff at dedicated sit-down restaurants.
I don’t really wanna tag anybody so the line ends with me!
