    My best friend — apparently there’s a Grumpy Cat rival.

    Patricia Arquette and Christian Slater in True Romance. "Oh Clarence you’re soooooo cool" gets me everytime.

    What is your TV guilty pleasure?

    I don't actually watch that much TV, but I was OBSESSED with Dawson's Creek growing up. And Freaks and Geeks. And 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter. Wow. Good times.

    What's the first CD you bought?

    I genuinely have no idea…but the last one I got was Lord Huron's Lonesome Dreams. It's damn good.

    What drives you absolutely crazy?

    Prejudice. Cruelty to animals. Being too warm.

    What was your first online screen name?

    Wayyyyy too tough. I swear like a sailor.
