Paige: Oh yeah… I’m scared though…
Hard Work: There's nothing to be scared of… first question: what made you want to start blogging?
Paige: Hmmm, well, yours kind of inspired me… I wanted a place to vent mostly… I blogged a few times on MySpace and Facebook (the notes) but i wanted a wider audience, I guess…
Hard Work: Sounds like a good idea to me... I'm known to be an inspiration to many... have you gained that wider audience that you wanted?
Paige: Well, sort of… I wish i had more followers but i barely update it anymore cuz I'm busy with work and other non-fun stuff to blog about makeup and hair and stuff
Hard Work: How many followers do you have?
Paige: I have 24
Hard Work: Well I'm sure you'll have some more followers after this interview (even though I only have 29 myself)
Paige: Well hopefully but you have a lot of readers!
Hard Work: Yeah, it seems i get a lot of traffic... LOL... it's an enigma that I don't have more followers and get more comments
Paige: Your count is way higher than mine, and yes it is a true enigma, lol. I really dont get it
Hard Work: So what makes your blog different from the other blogs out there?
Paige: I can’t say my blog is super unique to be honest
Hard Work: So what about your blog should make people want to read it?
Paige: I mean, well, i think it's interesting… i probably have more of an interest in cosmetology-related things than your average person, but i don't blog about it all that much… i try to post funny pics/videos every so often… i dont think i talk about my personal problems as much as i had intended to… i mean, half the point in me getting a blog was to vent about shit, but i barely do it… i mean, i might do it about things that are annoying but are still hilarious… but nothing serious
Hard Work: Well that's understandable... sometimes it's hard to be that honest... i have trouble wth it myself... out of the almost 1000 blogs i've made, i can count on one hand how many of them were like true venting posts
Paige: Yep… and also, i don't think that many people in detroit are bloggers… i mean, i could be wrong but i just doubt they do… ya know? i think i might blog more about the things i see here actually… thanks for the idea, lol
Hard Work: Speaking of Detroit... you and I have gone back and forth with this Michigan vs. North Carolina rivalry thing for years now... i can't remember how it started... do you?
Paige: Lol, no i don't remember either… it's been going on for so damn long… i'm pretty certain it started with some of your nonsense though… can pretty much guarantee that one
Hard Work: It's been proven on many occassions that NC is better
Paige: Psh… please… y'all don't even have an NBA TEAM!
Hard Work: Hello…? Charlotte Bobcats… let's be serious… we just don't have a MLB team
Paige: Ohmygosh, the “mighty” Bobcats… a cat that weighs 20 lbs… smh...
Hard Work: Are you seriously going to talk about teams? Detroit BARELY has an NFL team… when's the last time the "mighty" Lions won anything?
Hard Work: What happened yesterday?
Paige: Idk, i just made it up
Hard Work: Clearly.
Paige: So you guys are better cuz of sports? Let's be for real… how important are sports?
Hard Work: We're better because of more reasons than that… real estate… jobs… crime… agriculture… technology… people… our women are better, prettier, sexier (even though Wayne State has some BAAAAAAAD chicks)… I could go on and on
Paige: Our agriculture is fine… WE MADE FUCKING CARS! And I live here, so that cancels out that "people" thing and that "women" thing
Hard Work: Let's just move on Paige
Paige: Need I add that we're home to the nation's oldest state fair?
Hard Work: Who the hell cares? Lmao… the state fair?
Paige: Yes! 161 years old… BAM
Hard Work: Anyway… what are some of your favorite blogs/websites besides yours of course?
Paige: Yours (http://www.hardwork919.blogspot.com/) and Perezhilton.com (BY FAR my favorite) and Mediatakeout.com… they seem a little too, um, racial though… kinda bugs me...
Hard Work: Racial?
Paige: Yeah, i don't how they're always like "that white girl!", "in white people news"
Hard Work: Well a lot of black sites are like that...
Paige: I mean, they know they'd be mad as hell if a white website said "that black girl"
Hard Work: Lol… i have said that myself on occasion
Paige: Lol, i know
Hard Work: What are some things you want to blog about but just haven't had the chance to do yet?
Paige: My relationship cuz i thought I’d be in one by now, lol
Hard Work: Lol
Paige: Well, i guess i should say A relationship, not mine
Hard Work: Ok lol
Paige: Lol, anyway
Hard Work: The rest of the questions are quick hits... little silly MySpace questions i guess you could them… what is your favorite curse word?
Paige: Lmao… fuck… definitely… and not in its literal sense
Hard Work: Yeah yeah yeah… who are your fashion icons?
Paige: Lady Gaga… Rihanna… Beyonce… Vanessa Hudgens and Miley Cyrus
Hard Work: Items you always have with you and/or cannot live without?
Paige: Cell phone. Beauty Rush lip gloss in "i want candy". Bubble gum. Earrings.
Hard Work: If you could have lunch with 3 people, who would they be and why?
Paige: My mom, for obvious reasons. Now that he's gone, MJ, cuz he seemed very interesting… an enigma to say the least and I know this is more than one person, but my ancestors… I just wanna know more about who I come from
Hard Work: I feel you on that… what are your favorite things to cook? And what are your favorite things to eat?
Paige: To cook: I LOVE baking desserts… I don't do it too much though cuz I can't resist eating them, lol… favorite thing to eat: for sure, a dozen boneless wings from B-Dubbs on 60-cent Boneless Wing Night. always half honey BBQ & mango habanero. with blue cheese and a regular potato wedge
Hard Work: Lol… that's pretty specific but ok… favorite pair of shoes?
Paige: Lol, yeah I'm pretty picky. And i wish i could be all fancy and say i have a dream pair of Louboutin's… i mean, i do, but i'm all about the 2/$5 flip flops at old navy
Hard Work: Lol nothing wrong with that… your sluttiest fantasy?
Paige: Hahaha, oh man… I’ll keep most of it to myself, but we'll just leave it at some big romantic thing… like you see in the movies
Hard Work: There's nothing slutty about romance, Paige...
Paige: Lol, well i guess that's true… well, you know my strange notions about that i guess… I’ll just say it involves several people, a costume, handcuffs, a belt and a camera
Hard Work: AWESOME… lol… who's one person you want to punch in the face and why?
Paige: Lol, I have to pick just one?
Hard Work: Pick as many as you like...
Paige: I guess I’d have to say that one person I'm related to because she chose to be an asshole after my mom died… like, ridiculously…
Hard Work: Yeah I know the story on that one...
Paige: Also, extreme right wing people… I guess actually I should say extremely close minded people
Hard Work: Ok... nobody specific?
Paige: No, i mean just random people i've encountered, I barely remember them… they just hate the dumbest shit like tattoos, gay people, though it's none of their business, I can understand the abortion thing kind of cuz I think it's sad… also people who have zero empathy, even for strangers
Hard Work: All understandable… your favorite guilty pleasures?
Paige: 60-cent boneless night, lol and spending waaay too much time on the computer… doing nothing and Cinnabons, full of trans fat. Also: The Disney Channel and all its current stars
Hard Work: Lol all things i'm quite fond of myself besides that Disney thing… favorite Lil' Wayne song?
Paige: “Lollipop” It's so inappropriate, but i love it
Hard Work: No surprise there
Paige: My motto as of late, "fuck appropriateness" from TFLN
Hard Work: Lol I like that quote
Paige: Yeah i'm sure you do
Hard Work: Maybe once I start making t-shirts, I’ll make that one of them
Paige: Did you see the TFLN about Patrick Swayze/Kanye/MJ? Lmao, so funny… ha-ha, you should I didn’t know you were doing a t-shirt line… good idea though… since there's no more Steve and Barry's to make high-larious shirts
Hard Work: Lol yes, i saw it and the shirt line will be small… probably just ones to give out to my friends
Hard Work: Last book you read?
Paige: Lol… um… well i STARTED Twilight… haven't finished a book in forever
Hard Work: Lol… ok… last question (and i already know the answer) would you ever have sex for money?
Paige: Yes… however… it would have to be a LOT of money… and not with some random person and for the right reason
Hard Work: What is the right reason?
Paige: Not for a Gucci purse
Hard Work: Gotcha.
Paige: I mean, it's not something I’d do on a whim… if i needed a new car or surgery or rent money when that time comes when i move out.
Hard Work: I got you… well I’m glad you were available to do the interview with me... i really hope you get more readers off this…
Paige: Well, I feel honored young man and thanks for letting me do the interview =]
Hard Work: lol... no problem...
