Marley Summer Aero Smith [it's on my birth certificate!]

What will you spend your $25 on? Oh man, the day I was given this awesome honor, I bought a King Kittan TTGL “Kotobukiya” Plain Model Kit, and i’m putting it together, and i’m like… THIS IS SO NEAT! Great price too! It’s exactly what i’ve been wanting, and I can not wait to buy two more of the other character’s Ganmen when they come in! I hope so bad that I can use my moneys to get them. <3

How long have you been visiting TATE’S? Oh, geez. I remember someone telling me about it after I broke my ankle when I was 13- I probably went shortly after that, which makes it about 5 years-ish!

How old are you? I’m 18! :D

How do you make a living? Well, i’m a student… but I currently work part-time as a stage hand at BC and Parker Playhouse. I also do art commissions.

If you could do ANYTHING, how would you make a living? Raising baby red pandas and snow leopards or something ridiculous like that. Then art would just be at my own pace! YAY!

Do you have any pets? Oh my, I have many… are you ready? Bagel and Panda are my two mutt dogs. Daisy, Marty, Princess, James, and Ghibli are my cats. Violet is my guinea pig, and we’ve got a tub in the back yard with goldfishies in it.

Do you have any tattoos? Not yet, but I certainly will someday. Eventually i’ll have something designey involving rainbows- and i’m also seriously considering an octopus for my forearm.

What was you favorite toy as a child? — Now? As a kid, I absolutely loved my horses and dinosaurs. I still do! But my favorites now are plushies, like my big Totoro!

What is your most bizarre childhood memory? That’s a tough one… I have… a lot of those. Like the time my mom squirted me with her boob milk when my little brother was a baby. Or the time I was asked to watch this girl’s violin at school, and this random kid walked up and tried to steal it! I told him if he didn’t let go, I’d bite him. He wouldn’t let go of it! So I bit him and he freaked out and ran off. I gave him fair warning, little brat. Violin guarding WIN!

What is the one thing that irritates you the most? “The Game”

What is your favorite smell? Teatree and Mint. <3

What do you collect? Most of all, various plushies. I love to find odd ones at thrift stores and such.

What are some of your hobbies? Well, art is more than a hobby for me… IT IS MY LIFE. So instead I will answer… costuming, conventions, being a good example of a not-creepy furry, video games, and swimming. :3

What is your Favorite Comic/Manga? That would have to be something like Trigun or maybe FAKE.

What is your Favorite Anime/Cartoon? FLCL will always be my special baby. Me and my friends have acquired a passion for Gurren Lagann recently, though.

What is your Most Favorite Movie? The Nightmare Before Christmas has been a favorite of mine since I was itty bitty. I also really love Studio Ghibli films

What is your Favorite Bumper Sticker? Um… but there are so many witty sayings out there! How do you expect me to pick one?!

What is your Favorite T-Shirt? T-Minus shirt from threadless.com- it’s bright orange with an amazing illustration of a tiger and hundreds of arrows flying at it, with these cool yellow stripes all over it! So dynamic! Also my “This is How I Roll” Katamari shirt. BOTH OF WHICH ARE MISSING RIGHT NOW. I’m so mad. SO MAAAD.

What is your Dream Car? The pikachu VW beetle.

What superpowers do you wish you possessed? Shape-shifting. Then I could talk to animals- AND fly. Heck yes. I mean, obviously if I can turn into a bear, I could talk to them, too!

If you could banish anyone into the sun, who would it be? Oh, that’s not very nice! I don’t need to banish Bush anymore, we’ve finally fixed that problem. So I don’t think there’s anyone I hate that much. :]

Which character on The Simpsons do you identify most with? Blinky the three eyed fish, of course.

Most treasured possession? Can I say my friends? Seriously, they’re my favorite. Way better than any of my junk. My costumes would come after them though…. and my computer. <3

Do you have a homepage? Well, not really. But you can take a look at my deviantarts if you want! That’s the closest thing i’ve got, haha. http://matuska.deviantart.com/ and http://dipp.deviantart.com/
