Interview With Eden
I interviewed Eden, a newer person to The Cult. I picked her name at random from the names listed on the bottom of people who were viewing The Cult. Here goes:
Eden: Hello there
The Laz: Hi
The Laz: I’m from the cult
The Laz: How are you?
Eden: I'm quite well
Eden: And you?
The Laz: I'm alright
Eden: It's nice to meet you.
Eden: Kind of. *laughs*
The Laz: What’s your screen name at the cult?
The Laz: There's a reason for all this
The Laz: ok, here's what’s happening
The Laz: at the cult we're doing interviews
The Laz: kind of like a spotlight on certain members
The Laz: I'd like to do this with one of the new people who no one knows
The Laz: So I'd get to learn about someone knew and then give her the chance to be noticed
The Laz: if you're interested
The Laz: of course
Eden: I am
Eden: This sounds interesting
The Laz: You wanna start then? I've done one of these... It went well...
Eden: Let's see
Eden: So you want to know about me, huh?
The Laz: Yeah!
The Laz: I'll ask questions
The Laz: then copy it to word to fix all spelling errors and stuff is that cool?
Eden: That's fine
The Laz: ok! Great!
The Laz: So, what's your first name, where you from and how old are you?
The Laz: where
Eden: My first name is Courtney, I'm from Illinois, and I'm 16

The Laz: I spelled that all wrong
The Laz: so what do you do for a living?
The Laz: living
Eden: I work at a water park
The Laz: lifeguard?
Eden: *laughs* Dammit.
Eden: Everyone always asks me that
The Laz: What do you do there?
Eden: No, I'm in guest relations... I basically sell tickets and deal with the super-bitchy soccer moms
The Laz: Sounds fun
The Laz: not really
The Laz: I'm sympathizing
The Laz: my typing is awful
The Laz: so you're in high school? Junior?
Eden: Good call
The Laz: You going to college afterwards?
The Laz: For what major?
The Laz: What kind of law?
Eden: I was thinking corporate
The Laz: Going for the big bucks?
Eden: *laughs* You bet.
Eden: Looking to sell my soul as soon as possible
The Laz: Do you read a lot?
Eden: You betcha
The Laz: How do you like?
Eden: I love to read
The Laz: I meant who do you like?
The Laz: like what authors?

Eden: Chuck Palahniuk (duh), Francesca Lia Block...
Eden: Neil Gaiman
Eden: That's all that's coming to me right now
The Laz: I’ve heard a lot of good things about American Gods
Eden: I've not read it yet
Eden: But I intend to
The Laz: me either
The Laz: I’m thinking I should pick it up
The Laz: so it says here you like pancakes?
Eden: *laughs*, indeed I do
Eden: But that was more of a joke than anything else
The Laz: You mean it? There are a lot of people who say they like pancakes but don’t.
Eden: I do have genuine love for pancakes
The Laz: do you have a picture online?
Eden: I do
The Laz: may i?
The Laz: I’m going to post it with the interview if its alright
Eden: That's fine
The Laz: May I get a link?
Eden: *laughs* I’m trying to choose which one to give you
The Laz: if there's a happy one that one
Eden: I'll let you choose
The Laz: ok
The Laz: So how do you like the cult?
Eden: I like it quite a bit
Eden: The people seem friendly
Eden: And intelligent
Eden: And open
The Laz: Well, some of us are.
The Laz: It's like any community
The Laz: Have you read all Chuck's books?
Eden: *laughs*, there are always bad apples
Eden: I haven't read them all
The Laz: which ones have you read?
Eden: I've read Fight Club and Lullaby, and I'm currently reading Choke, which is my favorite so far.
The Laz: Mine too
The Laz: How did you find out about Chuck?
Eden: I watched Fight Club
Eden: *laughs*, that makes me feel horribly mainstream.
Eden: But that's how it happened.
The Laz: It's how I found out about it too.
The Laz: So why'd you leave The Cult between April and now?
Eden: I forgot about it
Eden: I'm more of an Ezboard girl myself
The Laz: What’s EZboard?
Eden: It's a bunch of message board communities
The Laz: I’ll check it out!
The Laz: So why the screen name "Eden"?
Eden: It's my gaming name
The Laz: You're a gamer?
The Laz: What games?
Eden: I play video games like Quake 3, UT2004, Diablo 2...
The Laz: Warcraft3?
Eden: I also adore Grand Theft Auto
Eden: I've never played Warcraft, but I've always wanted to
Eden: Have you ever heard of Clive Barker's Undying?
The Laz: Nope
The Laz: Online game?
Eden: It's my favorite video game ever, but no one's ever heard of it *laughs*
The Laz: I’ve heard of Clive Barker though.
Eden: Not an online game.
Eden: Yes, I've never read anything by him.
Eden: As great as the video game was, I'm scared to get disappointed by his books.
The Laz: Wow! That good, huh?
Eden: Yes, that good
The Laz: what platform?
Eden: It was also one of the first games that got me really interested in video games
The Laz: what system was it on?
Eden: The game runs on a Windows 98
Eden: It's pretty old
The Laz: huh. I'll try to find it
Eden: *laughs* It’s kinda ancient.
Eden: I also really love Tomb Raider
The Laz: Wow.
The Laz: That game is impossible
Eden: *laughs* But I'm probably boring you to death by now.
The Laz: nope
The Laz: So what nationality are you, if you dont mind me asking?
Eden: I'm Filipina
The Laz: 100%?
Eden: My grandfather is Chinese
Eden: And my father is Indian
The Laz: Native American or India Indian?
Eden: Native American
The Laz: I’m looking over your posts and you post a lot in music
The Laz: what kind of music are you into?
Eden: I'm into techno
Eden: *laughs* I didn't know I posted a lot in music...
The Laz: Out of 9 posts, 2 is a lot
The Laz: I guess
Eden: I'm quite the lurker, *laughs*
The Laz: Really? You're one of those people!
The Laz: Why do you lurk as opposed to posting?
Eden: I want to get a feel of the forum first, see how the people interact with each other... I hate it when I settle into a forum thinking it's nice, but then find everyone to be close-minded ignorant assholes
The Laz: Are there any particular posters who have caught your eye?
Eden: I like Aequitas because of his name
Eden: But I've not really read too much
The Laz: So it says you're a nymphomaniac?
The Laz: And an Angelina Jolie fan?
The Laz: Your sig says, "fuck yeah i'm weird."
The Laz: Why are you "weird"?
Eden: *laughs* I don't really think I'm all that weird
Eden: But every time I meet someone new, they say, "You're weird, you know that?"
The Laz: I haven't!
Eden: *laughs* but we've technically not met
The Laz: Well...technically....
The Laz: Anyway, do you think you'll be a more frequent poster at the Cult b/c of this interview?
Eden: I think so
Eden: *laughs* Was that your goal in doing this?
The Laz: Cool. You seem like a nice person, it'd be nice to have you aboard.
The Laz: My goal was to get an interview.
The Laz: This whole interview thing is all the rage right now in the cult
The Laz: and I hop on the bandwagons
Eden: Don't we all
Eden: That's why we're called the cult
The Laz: I suppose so!
The Laz: Ok. Anything else you wanna tell the cult about you?
Eden: *laughs* I can't think of anything in particular... I'm pretty boring *laughs*
The Laz: It's cool.
The Laz: Ok, we're done!
The Laz: How was it? Not too painful?
Eden: *laughs* Excruciating!
