Interviews of the Not So Rich and Famous - Ep 20 - S.M.E.

Wednesday, October 29, 2008
The Interviews of the Not So Rich and Famous series is just about at a close and what better way to bring it home than with fellow Edmontian blogger, SME. Methinks we live quite close to each other but we have yet to actually meet in person. However my laziness is not the subject of this interview. SME regularly treats us to the ongoing antics of her pet rabbit, the intrigues surrounding 9/11, and the wonders of claymation videos. She may not be Rich or Famous but she certainly keeps us entertained. Please check out her blog as well as her interview below. I give you... SME.

1. Name, winter or summer, fave t-shirt.
Name: S.M. Elliott, better known as SME. Winter or summer: Winter!! I can't tan, anyway; I just go straight from white to pink. Fave T-shirt: Tie between a Minnesota tee that has multicolored horses on it for no apparent reason, and a Tee with a middle finger and "I'm this many times 30" on it. But I secretly envy my dad's Penguin Lust T-shirt, and my mom's zoo souvenir tee that reads "Support Your Local Cathouse."

2. You're stuck inside Farenheit 451...which book are you and how would you avoid being burned?
I'd love to be Daniel Pinkwater's The Snarkout Boys and the Avacado of Death, 'cause very few people would know I existed and I could probably avoid being torched. But I guess I'd be Lolita and hide out in some pervy old professor's basement.

3. What is this fascination you have with SIMS?
It's not a game I would have picked out myself, but the kids gave me The Sims Complete for Christmas '06, and eventually I discovered that through the miracle of cheat codes, you don't have to let your Sims lapse into depression and narcolepsy, leaving garbage all over their houses. I found that this game has just the perfect entertainment combo: Godlike powers combined with cute little houses. I've gone through many phases with it - like my literary/historical phase, when I recreated the Bronte parsonage and Emily Dickinson's house (she didn't leave it, of course), and a cult phase when I built a Wicker Man-style commune and had all the little Pagans harvesting elderberries. If I ever get really ambitious, I'd like to tackle Graceland.

4. You get to be on any game show (past, present, or future). What show is it and how do you play?
Oh, that's easy. I go on Twenty One in 1956 and say to my opponent, "I know Herb Stempel. I'm a friend of Herb Stempel. And you, sir, are no Herb Stempel." Then I get escorted out of the building by security.

5. What's the most important part of a sandwich?
Definitely the mustard. I can skip the bread and the lettuce, but I need that mustard.

6. The US election is up for grabs. Seriously, things can't get any worse under President Sarah Palin.....could it?
Oh, banish the thought. Things will be just awesome. Haven't we always wanted to live in a permanent state of two-front war with a crippled economy, reading Jack Chick tracts while we await the Endtimes? Well, maybe I'm just speaking for myself here. That's my idea of a par-tay.

7. What is the airspeed of an unladen swallow?
I'll need to know if it's European or African before answering that.

8. If you were stranded on a planet inhabited by a race of giant man-eating lobster-like beings and could only bring one type of fruit, what would it be and why?
Grapples. If they're smart, those lobster-monsters will stay the heck away from Grapples.

9. As part of your household, you've got one of the cutest, cracker eating bunnies ever, Sophie. When will she be making her debut on the 30-Second Bunnies and what movie will they be remaking?
They actually tried to film Watership Down: The Musical with Sophie last year, but she was just was just too much trouble on the set. She's like the Gary Busey of bunnies. Even her Saltine endorsement fell through.

10. What bizarre conspiracy theoy would you most like to find out is actually true?
Truth be told, I'm really rooting for Bill Deagle's Modified Attack Baboons, which he says will be patrolling the U.S. Forbidden Zones alongside cloned dinosaurs very soon. I mean, attack baboons with nano-armour, how cool is that?! They could be the new Furbies! One in every household!

One word of advice: If you ever meet SME, keep an eye on your shirts. She's a notorious shirt thief! Although she did redeem herself by returning her Dad's "Penguin Lust" shirt.
Come to think of it, I haven't seen my cathouse shirt for a long time....

LOL.... That is funny you two. Yes I say you two have to meet. I know SME personally and she is a hoot to be with. Even though last time we were together was only for a few short hours... LOL... Maybe longer if I can convince her and Richard to come visit again sometime...
