Daily Arts Writer

The Michigan Daily: Hi, may I
please speak with Elizabeth?
Random: Hold on, let me get her...
Hi. This is Elizabeth.
TMD: Hello, you've been selected to
participate in this week's Michigan
Daily Random Student Interview.
R: Is that the newspaper?
TMD: Uh, yeah. Do you accept?
R: Sure.
TMD: OK, well, then let's get started.

Do you consider yourself a superstar?
R: No, not really.
TMD: Really? You sound like a
superstar.
R: Nah, I'm just one of the girls.
TMD: One of which girls?
R: My friends.
TMD: Oh. What's your major?
R: I'm an engineer.
TMD: Aw, I'm sorry to hear it.
R: Well, I'll be switching to LSA
soon.
TMD: Good to hear it.
Tell me what you remember about

your birth.
R: Absolutely nothing. No one
remembers their own birth!
TMD: Do you have a major memory
disorder or something? I remember
coming out of the womb just fine.
R: Really? Huh. Sorry, I'm blonde.
But I know most people I know don't
remember being born.
TMD: Have you ever been trainspot-
ting?
R: Can't say that I have.
TMD: Ever gone picking for dingle-
berries?

R: Nope. I've never heard of those.
TMD: Do you like berries in gener-
al?
R: Yeah, they taste pretty sweet.
TM): Then you should go dingleber-
ry picking. In the springtime.
Have you ever eaten sushi off a naked
body?
R: What kind of questions are these?
This is a pretty lame prank.
TMD: See, you're wrong there. This
interview is for the Daily.
R: Whatever you say.
TMD: Yeah, that's generally how it

goes.. So, back to this sushi ...
R: I've actually never had sushi.
TMD: Do you think Ann Arbor is a
whore?
R: No.
TMD: What city do you see as being
a whore?
R: Las Vegas.
TMD: Ah, yes, Vegas is a big dirty
whore, indeed.
Do you have a tattoo?
R:Yup.
TMD: Very cool. Me too. What's
yours of?
R: A butterfly on my lower back.
TMD: Does that mean it's on your
butt?
R: No, my back. And what kind of
tattoo do you have?
TMD: I have one of a little guy sleep-
ing on a crescent moon, on my right
shoulder blade.
R: Oh, the man on the moon. That's
cute.
TMD: Yeah, isn't it?
Does my voice sound sexy to you?
R: This is weird.
TMD: C'mon, just answer the ques-
tion. We've been through this ... I'm
with the Daily.
R: Here, talk to my roommate.
(Sigh.)
TMD: Hello? Who is this?
R: I'm not telling you my name.
TMD: OK, whatever. So, are you
going to help me out here?
R: Well, I know this isn't real, but
what the hell?
TMD: All I can say is: Wait for
Thursday. Then read the Weekend Mag-
azine. Jeez, no faith, no trust.
Where are you from?
R: Guess.
TMD: What is this? I'm the one in
charge. I dunno, West Coast?
R: Yep.
TMD: Cali?
R: Uh huh.
TMD: Great.
Have you ever enjoyed the pleasures
of synthetic meat?
R: No, I don't eat that much canned
food.
TMD: What do you think a kitten
would be like on magic mushrooms?
R: It would be like
MEEEOOOOWWW! Hahahaha.
TMD: Nice.
Spell Grosse Pointe. No cheating.
R: G-R-O-S-S-E P-O-I-N-T ... E
TMD: Ooh, nice. You're not sup-
posed to know that; you're from Califor-
nia.
R: Hey, I spelled it right, didn't I?
TMD: Yes, I suppose you did.
In one word, sum up our conversation.
R: Random.
TMD: Forgot to tell you - you can't
use "random." It's the Random Student
Interview, for crying out loud!
R: Why can't I use "random?" That's
what it was?
TMD: Will you just please pick
another?
R: Bizarro.
TMD: There you go ... wasn't that
hard.. So, you really don't believe that
I'm from the Daily?
R: Not at all.
TMD: Ha! Wonderful.
