What do you do for a living? I’m an artist.
How long has your bedroom been this messy? The mess has a tendency to ebb and flow, depending on my mood. This is actually pretty tidy. I’m having a good week so far.
How far in advance do you plan to clean? Sometimes when I come home drunk I clean, but by the time I wake up, it’s a mess again. I’m not sure how it happens. I don’t plan to live in a clean place until I can afford a French maid, so no, I don’t procrastinate.
Do you bring lovers into your place, and what do they think of the mess? I bring boys home sometimes. If they complain I punish them.
Do you collect anything? Yes. Rare and precious jewels. I accept donations.
Were you messy as a kid? I’ve always been messy. My mom never cared, but it grossed my brother out because he’s a Virgo. My mom still doesn’t care that I live this way. My brother never comes over. I don’t mind though because he’s got cable at his place and pretty much always has food.
What would your parents say about your apartment now? I make sure to look clean and pretty when I leave the house and I’m usually tidy when I make art.
What is your favorite item that you own, and are you worried about losing it in the mess? My favorite item is a secret. I don’t want to say whether it’s hidden or not because I don’t want people snooping around when they come over.
