Firstly, introduce yourselves!
K: Hi! Well, I’m Kaimi. Kaimi Sullivan. And this is my roommate…
A: Abby Allen.
What do you do for a living?
A: Um… we’re both students?
K: I’m a comm major, and I do some work for our radio network on the side.
A: Chemistry major, lit and art minor.
K: Well look at you, miss multitalented!
And after you are done with work or school or whatever it is you do, what do you do to unwind?
K: Oh, you know, the usual. Go on Facebook, get a friend or two over, watch some TV, go to a party…
A: Reread my favorite fantasy series.
Any bad habits or nasty indulgences, like smoking or gambling?
K: Sometimes I party a little too hard…
A: I don’t wash the dishes right away, I leave some of my homework to the last minute, I bite my lip a lot…
K: Oh, come on! Those aren’t bad habits! It’s not the end of the world!
Do you wear hats, and if so, which is your favorite?
A: Not really.
K: I have this collection of fancy hats that I rarely have a chance wear but I just love. I think the one I actually wear the most often is the fuzzy black one.
Favorite method of killing someone?
K: Next question.
What genre of books do you like to read? And if not those, any magazines or comics you might like?
K: I’m more into magazine articles. And not just, like, the celebrity tabloids either. A Day in the Life Of articles are probably my favorite.
A: Urban fantasy type stuff.
What song could you put on repeat over and over again?
K: Ooooh, that’s a tough one. My current ringtone is Royals, so let’s go with that one.
A: The Universe is Weird by Hank Green.
Do you have any pets?
K: I had a dog for a while but she died last year. She was really old.
A: I’m allergic to a lot of pets. My brother wants to get one but I don’t know if my parents are going to do it.
What is the first thing you tend to notice when you first meet someone? What impresses you? What disgusts you? Is there anything that ever particularly grabs your interest – something you might find attractive? (Like glasses or a certain eye color.)
K: I’m not that judgemental. I notice if they’re attractive to me - I mean, how could I not - but if they’re friendly then I like them. I can’t really describe my turn-ons. They’re just all over the place.
A: I generally look at their clothes first, ‘cause a lot of my friends don’t do the fashion thing…
A: Besides you. Anyway, similar minds often do similar dress styles so… there you go. Oh, and you never know when a fandom T-shirt will pop up.
Do you like roller coasters?
K: Hell yeah!
If your character were in a video game, what game would you likely be in? You can name a genre, or a specific game.
K: I’d be one of those buff female warriors who takes everone down with one swing of her sword and then saves the castle or something. I dunno, what usually happens at the end of video games?
A: Can I take her answer? That’s what I want to be, anyway. Except with magic.
Do you have any siblings? Do you like them?
A: I have a five-year-old brother back home. His name is Mikey.
K: Nope. I’d always have to substitute my friends from school.
Ever cross-dressed before?
K: Yeah! With my first girlfriend in high school we did this thing where I dressed up as a guy on April Fool’s Day and pretended my name was Cam so that we looked like a normal couple. No one believed it, of course, but it was fun!
What are your impressions about the other interviewees?
K: Well, you know, opposites attract, right? We became friends kind of by accident, but I’m glad we did. She’s so talented and funny and she helps me with stuff sometimes and I take her around and we have fun and we talk about some of her fandoms or whatever you call them and now we’re about to go into our second year as roommates!
A: What she said.
Do you even want to be here?
K: Sure! This is fun, right?
Tell me a secret you know about anyone – it could be any other character, even ones that aren’t at this interview! Reveal something they wouldn’t want others to know!
K: This guy I once dated broke up with me because he didn’t want me to see his room. I accidentally saw through the crack in the door once and there was a huge poster of Justin Bieber. I can’t think why he was hiding that, ‘cause I wouldn’t have judged him, but okay.
A: A secret? I don’t know… Uh… Kaimi is bisexual?
K: That’s not a secret, honey.
A: I tried.
What do you wear to bed?
K: T-shirt and sweatpants. I’m kinda boring.
A: My parents bought me two pairs of satin pajamas once.
Do you sleep more during the day, or during the night?
K: Depends on how much fun I’m having.
Thank you for showing up. What do you plan to do now that it’s all over?
K: Well, she was going to show me another episode of Sherlock.
A: Ooh, yeah! Which one were we on? I think we’ve got Reichenbach next. Oh my god you’re going to cry your eyes out.
K: Yeah, let’s go. Thanks for having us!
A: I BELIEVE IN SHERLOCK HOLMES!!!

OH MY GOD
omg it got
I’m not upset that it’s a ballad. I’m not upset that it has little development. I’m not even that upset that it’s not too well produced.
I’m upset that the whole of Europe is going to think Swedes suck at English.
Oddly enough, “Undo my sad” is actually acceptable English. The songwriter (Fredrik Kempe) even did some research to make sure that it wouldn’t just sound stupid. It does sound really odd, but it’s not as bad as one might think.
Seriously? Because in my 21 years I have never heard “sad” used as a noun. And I’ve also looked it up on dictionary.com - the only definitions I could find that weren’t adjectives were an Arabic letter, a New Zealand slang term, and an acronym. I don’t know what Kempe was trying to do but he failed.
