3. What Are Your Favourite Diff'rent Strokes moments? Jade and her (black) green thumb, as well as the Kaiser Chiefs cover
4. Tell us about yourself (written by her friend Katie)MY DEAR FRIEND CANUCK
MY FRIEND CANUCK IS AN ADORABLE, SANDAL-WEARING, TREE-HUGGING,MUSIC-LOVING, BOOK-READING, GREEN THUMB, ARTSY-FARTSY, QUASI-HIPPY WHO TREATS ALL LIVING THINGS WITH LOVE AND RESPECT.
SHE’S ONE OF THOSE ‘GOOD’ AMERICANS WHO WOULDN’T VOTE REPUBLICAN EVEN IF HER LEFT EYE DEPENDED ON IT! SHE’D GIVE UP THAT LEFT EYE ANYWAYS, CAUSE SHE’S ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A PIRATE WITH AN EYE PATCH.
CANUCK IS A MODERN-DAY LESBIAN MACGYVER WHO PUTS RICHARD DEAN ANDERSON TO SHAME. SHE’S SO CRAFTY, YOU COULD GIVE HER SOME STRING AND SOME STRAW AND SHE’D BUILD YOU A DURABLE FLOATATION DEVICE OR A BEAUTIFUL NECKLACE THAT WOULD DOUBLE AS A ‘HELP, I’M LOST’ GPS SYSTEM.
IF YOU DO BECOME LOST, CANUCK IS CAPABLE OF RECOGNIZING ALL CALLS OF DISTRESS, INCLUDING THE ONES OF SEXY, STRANDED LADIES AT THE PUB OR WOMYN’S MUSIC FESTIVALS. BUT BACK TO THE POINT.
WHEN SHE DOES HEAR YOUR DISTRESS CALL, CANUCK IS CAPABLE OF SNOW-BOARDING, BIKING, KAYAKING, TREE-CLIMBING OR SCRUMMING TO YOUR RESCUE. SHE’LL EVEN JUMP ON A PLANE AND SIT IN THE CHEAP SEATS! WHAT A LADY!
SHE’S A TRULY DEVOTED FRIEND. AND IF YOUR FAVORITE FLOWER WAS A ROSE, SHE’D PLANT YOU AN ENTIRE ROSH BUSH. AND THEN DRAW A PICTURE OF YOU SITTING BY YOUR FRESHLY GROWN ROSE PATCH, EATING HER VERY OWN HOME-GROWN TOMATOES.
THERE’S REALLY NOT MUCH THAT CANUCK HASN’T CONQUERED. BUT WILL SOMEONE SPECIAL BE ABLE TO CONQUER HER? SHE’S ESPECIALLY FOND OF AUSTRALIAN ACCENTS. SHE’LL EVEN GO FOR A KIWI!
6. How did you find Diff'rent Strokes? I love Jade, so I keep tabs on her from across the world
7. Jade is... a dingo lover (I hope this does not mean anything else but what it is over in OZ, Jade)
8. Dave is... a future friend of mine, I can tell...and also, unfiltered.
9. Other shows I love; The Lesbian Mafia, This American Life, The Moth Podcast
10. Something I'd Like To See Diff'rent Strokes do; Continue to post live VIDEO podcasts... you two are even better when we can see and not only hear your antics!
11. What are your similarities to Jade and/or Dave? Well, I am like Jade because I like quiet nights in and making out with girls...and I am like Dave because I have great fashion sense ;)
