1) What chick flick or romance movie can you watch on perpetual repeat?
I can't answer properly to this one. I mean, I went on wikipedia and found a list of movies considered classic chick flick:
Love Story (1970), Terms of Endearment (1983), Sixteen Candles (1984), Dirty Dancing (1987), Beaches (1988), Working Girl (1988), Steel Magnolias (1989), When Harry Met Sally (1989), Pretty Woman (1990), Thelma and Louise (1991), Sleepless in Seattle (1993), Waiting to Exhale (1995), The First Wives Club (1996), My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997), Titanic (1997), How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998), One True Thing (1998), You've Got Mail (1998), The Story of Us (1999), Where The Heart Is (2000), The Princess Diaries (2001), Love Actually (2003), The Notebook (2004), The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005), The Devil Wears Prada (2006), Enchanted (2007), Sex and the City (2008), Twilight (2008), The Proposal (2009)
So I either haven't watched them OR I purely dislike them. This is definitely not my kind of movies. But I have to answer, and you know, the first answer is the good one, I'm gonna use the one I gave you on my drunken night: Blade Runner. What did I find so romantic in B.R. I really don't know. But I don't know a few things about that night.

2) Who was the last person you drunk dialed/texted? What did you say?
That same night I came home and texted Matt. The day after I found this text in the "Sent" folder at 3.05AM: "I tried three times, maybe four maybe more, better shut the door" it's a quote from a sketch of song by Fracula from 2008. Could be worse. Has happened worse.

3) What beauty or fashion trend do you wish you had the guts to try?
If I had slim legs I would wear skin tight pants paired with an oversize men's blazer. I like that style a lot. But I'm too much of a tomboy-looking in a bad way so if I wear it I'd look like a man. I'm too big.
Something like this, don't look at the pants here.

4) What fashion trend do you want to see die a quick and painful death?
Bell-bottoms. They were barely acceptable in the 70s, when they had nothing better to do than starting this trend of fashion. In the 90s they were disgusting. Today they are disturbing. They're not that wide, but I still see them in the USA sometimes, paired with running shoes....BRRR

5) Have you ever worn an outfit that would get you arrested by the fashion police?
YES! And again it's about jeans. I sucked so bad that there was a time when I wore 501 Levi's and the waist was too high, so I'd wrapped them down and secure with a belt underneath, though not through the loops. I hope there's no photographic evidence of that shame. Simply EMBARRASSING.

6) Which T.V. character would you want to trade lives with for a day?
Anthony Bourdain. He's a cool human, he's a chef and in his show No Reservations he travels around the world, seeing and eating weird stuff. Don't misunderstand me though, he's not the kind of guy that goes in weird places looking for "extremely exotic" food, like ants, grasshoppers and gross stuff (and that's another show). He eats like the locals, I especially love when he eats street food. Sometimes he's in the fanciest restaurants of the place he's in. I love this mix. I bet he gets to taste some freaking delicious food. I have the feeling that the episodes are just half planned by the authors, and that's cool too.
I don't like his (Italian) wife, but it's fine, I don't have to marry her.
I just read one of his books too, the most famous "Kitchen Confidential", I really liked it and strongly recommend it.
He's a punk.

7) What are the secrets of your no-fail hangover remedy?
Oh yeah, I know this answer. I wake up pretty early in the morning, like at 8AM (and maybe I slept for 4 hours), still feeling drunk, laughing and saying a lot of stupid things and trying to remember the end of last night. It's a precious time for me, because I enjoy feeling "silly" but I'm not (AS) shitfaced anymore. Sometimes I have great ideas in these moments.

Then I definitely wanna get up, drink plenty of water and eat something salty, like eggs, something crunchy, but not too crunchy, like toasted bread, and something crispy and salty like bacon or ham. Or an egg muffin, eggs in a basket, a bagel, a sandwich, home fries, hash browns. Freshly pressed OJ. Basically the American breakfast. OR Pyttipanna, the Swedish classic made with diced potatoes, diced pork and diced onion, cooked crispy in a pan, with a runny egg on the side and ketchup.
A couple of cups of coffee.

Using the bathroom. Then forbidding anyone else to enter that room for a while.
Going back to sleep until 12-12.30. Getting up again, feeling hungry, going out looking for food (that means walking and getting some fresh air too). Taking a shower and feel a human again.

8) What song gives you the uncontrollable urge to get up and dance?
Automatic answer: "Uncontrollable urge" by DEVO, really though many DEVO songs, like "Jerking Back'n' Forth", "Jocko Homo", "Smart Patrol-Mr.DNA" , then "Chantilly Lace" in the version of the Collind Kids, Las Vegas Grind compilations because they are wild, especially the songs including the saxophones, "il Geghege" by Rita Pavone, Madonna's "Material girl", the Contours "Do you love me", "Kana Kapila" by the Continental Cousins, "Reach out, I'll be there" by the Four Tops, "Where did our love go" by the Supremes (and/or Soft Cell) and many more in this style, you know, Mad Mike & the Maniacs "The Hunch" and many more I can't even think about.

9) What is the most hideous article of clothing you own but refuse to toss out?
This old Cosby sweater that was my brother's.... almost 20 years ago.

10) If you were the star of a reality show, what would the title be?
Are you on holiday or just unemployed?
subtitle: looks like you're Living the life.

11) If you were featured on the "E! True Hollywood Story", what celebrity would you be flattered to see portray you?
I would like to have Carlones so I'd be sure he talks well about me.

12) If there were a theme song that played every time you entered a room, what would it be?
This one:
