1. What was the last thing you purchased second-hand?
Right before we all went on lockdown, I was buying a lot of secondhand Chico’s Traveler’s line shirts.
I like them because even though, yes, they are acetate and microplastics, they last for a million years. The one that I originally bought, I purchased in 2008 – so it’s 11 years old – and it still looks as good as I did when I bought it. So, I’m buying a piece that could have ended up in a landfill otherwise and will last forever.
I have about 6 pieces now in my wardrobe. And if I ever get to be seen by the public again, I’ll probably slowly replace more finicky pieces in my wardrobe with new secondhand peices from this line.
2. What’s a dish you cannot resist a second helping of?
Homemade spaghetti. It’s a comfort meal to begin with, so I usually end up eating a pound of cooked pasta in a sitting.
3. How many seconds can you go right now without blinking?
Now that you’re actually asking, zero seconds.
4. Whose second album is much better than their debut album?
Music is not one of my high hobbies, so I had to get a little bit of help with this question.
And though Nirvana is not for me, and I will turn them off whenever they come up on Spotify, I will wholeheartedly agree that Nevermind was the album that not only cemented their credibility as a band, but was a landmark change in music. Period. No one talks about Bleach. Everyone I know in my generation still has Nevermind in their music catalog, even if they never listen to it.
5. What’s something for which you were runner-up?
Any job that I was a candidate for that I lost to anyone else, I suppose. No other discrete times come to mine.
