Five Fine Chicks

Mood: Can I go home yet?
Drinking: Wishing

Time’s up.

I’ve got my five (see the preview post if you’re all, “huh?”). Here goes, in order of arrival:

#1. VICTORIA

Bit of random:
I wanna take you shopping for some really tall, really tight, really scandalous platform boots.
Musical:
When I listen to AC/DC singin’ Highway to Hell, I think of you.
Soup:
Definitely chicken dumpling. I would totally wrestle with you amid hunks of soggy dumpling dough.
Alias:
You should change your name to “Inara Serra”.
Memories:
You said, “fucked-up view of God” in your very first email to me. You had me at hello.
Animal:
You remind me of a raven.
Question:
Did you ever want to punch Laura Ingalls Wilder’s lights out?

#2. PAMELA, A.K.A. ELIZABETH

Bit of random:
You have all the range of the color yellow, from the soft buttery end of the spectrum to the blinding orangeish end.
Musical:
Aretha Franklin: Natural Woman. Yup.
Soup:
No question — carrot soup. No peas. No potatoes. Just carrots.
Alias:
Well, you’re kind of a pro at the name-changing thing, so I’m a bit out of my depth here, but I’m thinking something along the lines of “Imogen”. Has a nice ring to it.
Memories:
I was nervous when I met you, not so much because of you but because of the other people I was meeting at the same time. I remember your hair was long and your smile was huge and your hug was warm and then I wasn’t so nervous anymore.
Animal:
A mother hen. The fluffy brown kind with a brood of yellow peeps hiding beneath her wings. And she looks all kind, but she will totally peck out your frickin’ eyes if you mess with her chicklings.
Question:
If your life was exactly the same, but you didn’t have kids, what would you do with your days?

#3. MEREDITH

Bit of random:
In your last life, you were totally punk rock.
Musical:
Beastie Boys: She’s Crafty
Soup:
Chicken Noodle. With the little round noodles, not the long floppy ones.
Alias:
Tabitha. Like that one MTV veejay back in the day, the redhead who you just did NOT want to fuck with.
Memories:
Smokin’ and making fun of certain skeevy coworker toenails. Oh, and for some reason, whenever I think about meeting you, the word “BEDAZZLE” is all blinking in capital letters and covered in rhinestones.
Animal:
You are totally a bright orange tabby cat. And you know it. Rawr.
Question:
When your dog sweater business is highly successful and you’re featured in Real Simple and stuff, can LeeLoo still be your model and spokesdog?

#4. JANICE

Bit of random:
Short. Blonde. Flatironed. It was hott! (with 2 t’s)
Musical:
SneakerPimps: M’aidez
Soup:
Red Pepper Bisque. But only if you make it. Because, yum!
Alias:
Hmmmm. Kathleen. But you would go by “Kat”.
Memories:
Summer. Michigan. That one restaurant? You and I were the only girls. And I thought, “If she doesn’t like me, I’m screwed, ‘cuz she’s got all those boys on her side!”
Animal:
Because you’re probably expecting a cat, I think an Afghan Hound. Long, golden and silky. And not doggish in the least. (They always seem to be such sophisticated hounds.)
Question:
If you knew then what you know now, would you still have married young? (This not being a question about the spouse but about the age.)

#5. JO

Bit of random:
Beanhead Picklewart
Musical:
The Innocence Mission: Bright as yellow
Soup:
Cream of Cauliflower. ‘Cuz it’s tasty and there’s plenty of big chunks of stuff that we could throw at each other.
Alias:
Clementine. Or Jacinda. I cannot make up my mind.
Memories:
My first memory of you is playing drums on your tiny round tummy. It made a nice bongo sound.You didn’t have much hair. And also, there is the famous quote: “When I’m 13 I’m gonna run away from home. Then you’ll be sorry!”
Animal:
You are a lynx. Sleek. Gorgeous. But not quite tame. (And definitely not a panther.)
Question:
Would you have been a cheerleader at Sterling Public High School?

Lo, still thinking of answers. This thing was harder than it looked!
