-Oh, I've done several dumb things. In middle school I had this absolutely horrific short haircut that I styled like a guys with a ton of gel. And to this day I have no clue why. It would have been fine if it had suited me, but it just looked like shit. When I think of it now I cringe.

10. describe the sheets on EVERYONES bed in your house
L-Dawg has red flannel. T-Dizzle has lime green flannel. Neither one has a top sheet. I have one high count flat white cotton sheet as a bottom sheet and a large piece of mostly faded yellow linen reclaimed from some salvaged (once, apparently, very fancy) roman shades that a friend gave to me, as a top sheet. It's a little rough, as it's drapery-weight linen, not finely spun for sheets, but it's almost as warm as flannel in the winter and nice and cool in the summer.

Interesting to me that so many people wish they could sing. I'm a singer--I've been a performing singer for about 35 years. Would I trade my singing ability for a mate, though? Little Mermaid style? No way.

1. Ever do something dumb to your hair or drastic? Tell us about it!

After a fight with my high school boyfriend on the phone in the early hours of the am, I woke up, got ready for school, looked at the braid of my LONG hair going down- saw a pair of scissors next to the mirror and chopped it all off at the base of my neck. Stuck the braid in a basket and went to French class, cried about it while reading Les Fleurs Du Mal, got a few compliments from people (it actually looked styled) and the ass face apologized for the things he had said about me before lunchtime, unfortunately.

Ruby Carmen.

9. If you could develop any talent or skill seemingly over night, what would that be?
Lightening shooting out of my fingertips- that is just my spontaneous response to that question. I wanna find chicks to be in a band. Finding band member powers. Sick of having guys grope me when collaborating with me on guitar. I can't jam. And I wanna drum kit. Badly!
