Portrait of the Lovely Christine W.

Nicknames: Christinie-weenie, Chaos, Little Kate, Sweetie Pie
City/State: St. Augustine, Florida
Occupation: College Archivist
Birthday: July 5–fireworks are really like the New Year’s Eve of my birthday.
Single or taken: Married many wonderful years.
Other Scooter/Misc. Affiliations: Heck’s Angel’s Scooter Club
Make/model/description of scooter(s): 2003 cobalt blue Vespa ET4. I love that thing.
Hey baby, what’s your sign? Cancer. Yes, I’m Cancer the Crab. Probably a pretty accurate description of what I’m like to live with: I spread everywhere and I’m angry all the time.
Any tattoos? 17 if you count them individually but one is technically all my toes.
Favorite Holiday: Thanksgiving and funerals. All your family in one place doing one thing only–eating.
Favorite Alcoholic Drink: Sprite with Grenadine syrup. (Straight edge, but not by choice.)
Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Hi-C Lava Burst with a big straw and the right ice from McDonald’s.
Favorite Joke: What do a walrus and a Ziploc baggie have in common?
Favorite Bands: Black Kids, The Go! Team, T Rex, Shocking Blue, Le Tigre, Abba, Pixies, Bill Monroe.
What’s the last CD you bought? Black Kids, Partie Traumatic.
What are your guilty pleasures? Sneaking Krispy Kreme doughnuts.  I’m allergic to wheat, but I can usually get away with eating one before I get sick.
Why’d you get into scooters? I worked in a crowded area and I wanted a moped I could park on the sidewalk.  Then I saw this awesome Chicago local access channel special on a scooter club and me and my husband had to join.  that introduced me to my homegirls, The Instigators.
Any other vehicles? 2008 Honda Element
What’s in your glove box? Insurance card, rain gear, tool kit, zip ties, bungee cords, and a ShamWow!
What are you up to these days? Lounging in the pool in the hot Florida sun.
Ever been arrested? No, but I probably should have been. Why? No reason (looks up at ceiling, whistles, shuffles feet).
If you were stranded on a desert island, what 4 items would you bring with you? The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner, a soft but large towel, Sunglasses, and, according to The Pirates of the Caribbean, rum.
What’s one of the craziest things you have ever done? I cry in public a lot. I know that’s not the kind of crazy this question means, but it really is crazy. Grocery stores, restaurants, movie theater lobbies (before the movie)… The list goes on, really.
The stupidest? I think everything I do is stupid.
