OUTSIDER OF THE WEEK: BLAIR S.

story by mindy strouse

originally published: July, 2005

Each week we offer a profile of an outsideleft reader. This is purely voluntary and as they used to say about dating Chris Evert, the line is long, but it moves pretty fast... So, c'mon, whore yourself a little for our entertainment...


Name:
Blair S.

Age: 24
Hometown: Houston, Texas
Something About It: All the homeless and old people die when it gets hot during the summer.
Transport: A 1999 metallic green Honda Civic
What do you do for money: I'm a pencil pusher/bean counter for an insurance company.
Preferred Musicians/Music: Olivia Tremor Control, Neutral Milk Hotel, Ani DeFranco, The New Pornographers, The Postal Service, Rilo Kiley, Sufjan Stevens
Likes: Kermit the Frog, Gene Wilder, old Moserite guitars, Watching Deep Space Nine in my underwear while eating Cheetos, fish sticks swimming in ketchup/catsup
Dislikes: Braces, Lance Armstrong's arrogance, cell phones, seedless watermelons, Sex and the City, Chai Tea, Oprah Winfrey, Simon and Garfunkel.
Most embarrassing moment: Like an idiot in high school, I got incredibly drunk at a party and got talked into making out in a really vulgar manner with of my female friends - on video. I didn't think anything of it until about a week later when I found out the video was being traded on every file-sharing website in the world. Oh yeah, someone emailed the clip to my mom - that was pretty embarrassing.
